Making the most of Braemar’s smaller size to bring you closer to five delightfully diverse destinations in Denmark, where a warm reception is guaranteed wherever you visit, this immersive and uplifting adventure is your opportunity to really get under the skin of one of the world’s most welcoming and most fascinating countries.

You’re in for a wholesome, simply unforgettable experience throughout this 10-night Danish exploration, beginning with a call into Aabenraa after your ship navigates Germany’s picturesque, size-restricted Kiel Canal. You’ll be welcomed with open arms to Aabenraa, where you can enjoy a relaxing day soaking up this charming coastal city’s cosy atmosphere and admiring the fine 13th century architecture, or perhaps take a tour to Denmark’s oldest town, Ribe. The following morning you’ll arrive at Hundested to a memorable Viking welcome and traditional battle reenactments on the quayside. A handful of attractions, such as Grønnessedyssen Karlstenen – one of the country’s largest megalithic tombs – and Knud Rasmussen’s House await you here, while Kronborg Castle – the setting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet – is within reach on tour. You can also marvel at Kronborg Castle from the comfort of your ship’s decks, as Braemar sails from Hundested to Rønne, on the beautiful island of Bornholm. Rønne is a joy to explore, with its charming cobbled streets and ochre-coloured half-timbered houses. It’s also your gateway to the friendly fishing town of Gudhjem and the dramatic ruins of Hammershus Slot. [ReadMore]

In Copenhagen, your smaller ship will once again take your closer to the heart of it all, docking within easy reach of the city centre and the many delights of the Danish capital. Highlights including the famous Little Mermaid statue and the pretty Nyhavn waterfront district await just a short distance from the ship; while those who take time to dig a little deeper are rewarded with attractions such as the legendary Tivoli Gardens and the gems of ‘Royal Copenhagen’ – Rosenburg Castle and the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces. Finally, there’s Fredericia, where your call is specially timed to coincide with the 170th anniversary of the Battle of Fredericia. You’ll be greeted by ceremonial cannon fire and friendly locals in traditional dress, ensuring your arrival into this historic town will be one to remember; and in the evening you’ll be perfectly placed to watch a celebratory fireworks display. During the day, you can head into the town centre – just 400 metres from your ship’s berth – to find old military ramparts and landmarks including the Foot Soldier Statue; or perhaps opt for a tour to nearby Odense, home of Hans Christian Andersen's childhood residence.

Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.

Refurbished in 2017, elegant 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.

Real ships
We don’t have boastful megaships. We take immense pride in our fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel.  We ensure they remain contemporary too: from winter 2016 to spring 2018 the whole fleet underwent dry dock refits to further enhance the facilities for guests. With the fifth generation Fred. Olsen as Chairman and 170 years of seafaring heritage behind us, we believe we’ve found the perfect formula for you to get the best out of your holiday with us.

Smaller but spacious
A smaller ship doesn’t mean less space; far from it. Each room is comfortably sized, with all that you’ll need to enjoy your holiday. In fact, our rooms are comparable to those on some of the mammoth cruise ships. While our vessels are on a more accessible scale, you can have just as much private space.  With fewer people on board it’s easy to find a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink or a good book. There’s room to stretch out by the pool and you can get ashore more quickly too. And when you’re ashore, you’re seeing the best of each port of call with hundreds – not thousands – of others, giving you a much more authentic experience.

Service with a smile
Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday: in guest feedback our staff are always the most highly-rated aspect of the whole experience.
