Enjoy a traditional cruising experience with a friendly, welcoming environment when you sail on Braemar. As with all ships in the Fred. Olsen fleet, she is tailored to British cruisers, from the authentic décor to the little touches like high quality tea and coffee selections.
The smaller size of Braemar means that she is perfect for bringing cruise passengers together, whether over dinner in one of the outstanding restaurants or with a drink in the show lounge while a live comedy or musical performance takes place. And if you need a little ‘you’ time, just head to the spa and book yourself in for an incredible treatment.
Every meal is a special experience on board Braemar, with tempting indulgences on offer in the stylish dining venues throughout your cruise. The main dining areas on-board are the Grampian Restaurant and the Thistle Restaurant, which both serve a mouth-watering menu of the finest cuisine. Palms Café is a buffet-style restaurant offering a less formal dining option, so you can choose what you want to eat and when you want to eat it. The Marquee Bar is where you can take a dip, soak up the sun and enjoy a hearty breakfast or light lunch, too. For unforgettable al fresco dining, book a table at The Grill and enjoy perfectly prepared steaks, seafood and more, all accompanied by spectacular views. Room service and afternoon tea are also available.
Accommodation options on-board Braemar range from interior cabins to those with portholes or picture windows, up to balcony cabins and luxurious suites. Single rooms are available for solo travellers. Each room comes well-equipped with climate control, an interactive smart TV, desk, phone, fridge, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities. Selected suites come with the Suite Dreams Package which includes a whole host of extras such as fresh flowers, luxury bathrobes and slippers.
You’ll find so much going on on-board Braemar - photography talks, ballroom dancing classes, art tutorials, theatre workshops, bingo and trivia to name just a few. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to keep fit with yoga, Pilates, dance classes and a fully-equipped fitness centre, as well as sports and games such as table tennis, quoits, bowls and golf. There are two large heated swimming pools on-board, flanked by bubbling Jacuzzis and plenty of sun loungers on which to relax. Other facilities include a card room, casino, library and a spa and beauty salon.
During the peak holiday season, children between the ages of 5 and 12 are well catered-for in the Little Skippers Club. Here they can enjoy a whole host of activities including arts and crafts, deck games, treasure hunts, cookery and quizzes, all in the company of qualified childcare professionals.
There’s always something to keep you entertained on board Braemar. From interesting talks and lectures, brain-teasing quizzes and insightful classes to enjoy during the day – perfect if you’ve somehow had enough of relaxing in the sunshine or exploring ashore; to fantastic performances from live singers, dancers, comedians and more in the evenings.
You’ll find a variety of shows and entertainment acts in the various bars and lounges around the ship. The Neptune Lounge features live shows and cabaret acts, whilst the Observatory Lounge is where you can enjoy pre-dinner drinks and be awed by the extraordinary ocean views. The Coral Club, meanwhile is a sophisticated, 170-seater lounge which hosts much of the ship’s evening entertainment. If you’re after recreating the atmosphere of your local, then head to the Morning Light Pub. The Marquee Bat is a great spot for an alfresco pre-dinner drink and is also the venue for fantastic late-night deck parties.
