After meeting Braemar in Barbados, you’ll taste a slice of Caribbean paradise. You can feel St Vincent’s black sands between your toes; see Guadeloupe’s spectacular volcanic scenery; and indulge in pure relaxation on the beaches of tropical St Maarten. A chance to ride St Kitts famous scenic railway is an unmissable highlight. Then, after a magical transatlantic crossing, stopping at the verdant Azores en route, you’re in for a memorable Adriatic adventure. Sail the tranquil waters of the fjord-like Bay of Kotor and explore Kotor’s beautifully preserved medieval centre; and immerse yourself in centuries of history amongst the ancient walls and terracotta-topped architecture of UNESCO-listed Dubrovnik and Split. Visiting Venice is an undoubted highlight; not only will you get to see attractions such as the 14th century Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica, and enjoy a gondola ride along the iconic canals, but also enjoy a more laid-back taste of Venetian life in the fishing town of Chioggia.[ReadMoreDesk]

In Greece, excitement and sheer astonishment will grasp you as record-breaking Braemar navigates the Corinth Canal. Sailing serenely between the canal’s carefully carved, pinching cliffs, you’ll delight in dramatic views and a unique experience rarely enjoyed on an ocean cruise ship, and make memories that last a lifetime. During your time ashore at Greek islands, you’ll be immersed in rich history, culture and stunning beauty; take in the Cretan charms and striking Byzantine architecture of Agios Nikolaos; and trail the ancient sites of Rhodes, from Rhodes Town to Lindos’ legendary ruins. In sleepy Syros and gorgeous Kefallonia, Ermoupoli and Argostoli exude Mediterranean magic, with pastel-hued villas and palm-lined promenades, Ouzeries and glorious beaches. Meanwhile, there are incredible attractions to uncover on the mainland; Katakolon and Pireaus are gateways to the iconic ancient cities of Olympia and Athens.

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.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
