A chance to experience what makes Fred. Olsen’s beautiful homeland so special, while spending less than a week away, this makes for the perfect short break.[ReadMoreMob] Your fjordland discovery begins after an overnight sail from Rosyth; enjoy a gentle glide along the glassy waters of Lysefjord – only accessible to smaller ships – and witness the rugged beauty of its mountains and cliffs. Bergen’s many attractions, such as the city’s UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, bustling fish market and Fløibanen funicular railway, will then await your discovery. Perhaps join a local for a hike – it’s a great way to take in the highlights.

It’s then on to Olden, a village tucked away amongst the wonders of Nordfjord. Perhaps tour to the Briksdal Glacier to see and hear vast, creaking ice formations, or even take in the unspoilt tranquillity of Lovatnet Lake. For the very best views of Nordfjord’s vast mountain valleys, take a ride on Loen Skylift to see them from high above the azure waters. Finally, you can look forward to scenic cruising of Nordfjord and past Hornelen – North Europe’s tallest sea cliff – for a memorable end to your time in Norway.

Braemar is the shortest of Fred. Olsen's four smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ships, with dimensions perfect for cruising picturesque, size-restricted rivers and docking in the heart of fascinating towns and cities.

Like the rest of the fleet, Braemar assumes the welcoming feel and intimacy of a country house hotel, and a sense of timeless style and elegance flows through the ship's comfortable bars and lounges, restaurants and spacious accommodation for up to 929 guests.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.
