Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Fred. Olsen's stunning Braemar ship offers a remarkable balance of relaxation and activity. This intimate ship is served by a devoted crew of approximately 370, with plenty of leisure facilities and lively venues to create an unforgettable sociable atmosphere. Braemar features an assortment of delicious cuisines throughout its casual and formal dining venues. For a sophisticated affair, there are the elegant Gala Dinner events at The Thistle Restaurant. Add some variety with a buffet featuring worldwide cuisines or a mouth-watering lunch on the sun terrace. Then again, you could always savour a speciality hot drink and sweet treat at the coffee and chocolate cafe! During days at sea, you can take a dip in the swimming pool, sunbathe on a lounger, unwind in a hot tub, and enjoy afternoon tea at Coral Club. You also have a library, as well as a spa that offers professional massages, facials, and reflexology sessions. For active guests, there are golf nets, arts and crafts sessions, and walks along the scenic promenade — perfect for a moonlit meander or sunny stroll. You can even treat yourself to some duty-free shopping at the ship's designer boutiques, too. Braemar comes alive with dazzling shows and live music in the evening. Head to Neptune Lounge for cabarets, Observatory Lounge for panoramic views, or Morning Light Pub for beers, wines and live bands. Personal, friendly and welcoming perfectly describe Braemar's atmosphere.
