Cruising to the Heart of Seville & Bordeaux

Overview

Cruising to the Heart of Seville & Bordeaux

With Braemar able to dock closer to the heart of each destination, you can explore some of Spain and France’s finest cities, including beautiful Bordeaux and stylish Seville, with ease. Engrossing architectural, historical and cultural delights await, from striking cathedrals to traditional tapas bars, all on this endlessly rewarding journey of discovery. Of the five stunning cities on this carefully planned itinerary, Bordeaux and Seville are sure to stand out as highlights of your holiday. You’ll sail into – and dock within – the centre of both of these highly-rated destinations, where your exploration starts at the end of the gangway. Step ashore in Seville and you’ll find the enchanting Parque de Maria Luisa and the iconic Plaza de España just a short walk away, while the Moorish Alcázar Palace and spectacular Gothic Cathedral – the largest of its style in the world – are within easy reach. An overnight stay affords time to savour the raw emotion of a traditional flamenco performance too. In Bordeaux, Braemar takes you into the UNESCO-listed historic centre, with its pedestrianised boulevards, neoclassical architecture and world-famous sites, such as the Grand Theatre and Place de La Bourse. Beyond the city itself, tours to the Medoc vineyards offer an authentic taste of Bordeaux’s legendary wine culture.

Fred. Olsen cruises are hugely popular with our customers, why? The service and friendly crew make the cruise experience something very special with the crew treating customers more like friends.The ships are smaller and have an intimate atmosphere so, if you want staff who remember how you like your drink and have it waiting on the bar, then Fred. Olsen might just be for you

Ship Overview

Braemar

It's all about you on board the Braemar. And with 150 years’ of sailing heritage behind us, the service and cruise ship will delight you.

Braemar will capture your senses - with large windows, polished wood, shining brass fittings and decadent fabrics. A five-deck high atrium area and cascading decks at the stern give Braemar space and intimacy in perfect balance.

Have a tasty lunch at the Palms Café and a delicious dinner at our grand Thistle and Grampian restaurants. Refresh at the Marquee poolside bar, or have a cosy drink in the Morning Light Pub. Spin to the music at the Neptune Lounge, and take afternoon tea at the Coral Club. Leave the world behind in the serene Atlantis Spa, and surround yourself with horizon, as you walk the promenade.

The Olsen family business can be traced back to 1848. Here a young ship-master called Fredrik Christian Olsen (known as First Fred. Olsen) entered ship-owning on his own account. His earliest vessels were wooden schooners of little more than 50 gross tones.

Full Itinerary

Day 1 & 2: Southampton

Day 3: La Coruña

The city of La Coruña is the capital of the province and a busy seaport situated in the Galicia region of northwest Spain. Most famous for its Roman lighthouse, the diverse architectural styles of La Coruña make the city an absolute delight for sightseeing.

Days 4: Vigo, Spain

Situated on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, and with one of the world’s finest natural ports, the Galician gem of Vigo has been an important part of Spain’s maritime industry for centuries. Boasting a wonderful historic quarter, modern marina and pretty centre, this city is alive with attractions.

Day 5 & 6: Seville

Compact, rich in history and famous for its flamenco, tapas bars and orange trees, the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region, Seville, is bursting with antique charm. Located on the plain of the Guadalquivir River, Seville’s old Roman city is now home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

World-renowned for flamenco dancing, particularly in its Triana neighbourhood, the city’s significant landmarks include the ornate Moorish-Renaissance Alcázar Palace complex, and the 18th century Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza bullring. The colossal Gothic Seville Cathedral is the site of Christopher Columbus’s tomb and the Giralda, an imposing bell tower built on a minaret.

Day 7 - 9: Cadiz

Cadiz - one of Europe's most ancient cities - hugs Andalusia’s sunlit Atlantic coast and is characterised by palm trees, lookout towers and weathered old buildings. Now into its fourth millennium, Cádiz's fascinating Old Town district is home to huge stone walls from the 1500s and the beautifully crafted 18th century Cádiz Cathedral.

Day 10 & 11: Bordeaux, France

Widely regarded as the world’s wine capital, the graceful French city of Bordeaux offers far more than just vineyards and claret. Having rid itself of a rather sleepy image over the last decade, Bordeaux is now among one of France's most exciting and dynamic cities. While a sizeable number of its visitors still visit the city to get a taste of what makes this wine-rich region so special, Bordeaux has many other surprising secrets.

Day 11 - 13: Cruising Gironde & Garonne Rivers, France

The beautiful River Garonne is possibly south-west France's most important river, and arguably one of the region's most picturesque too. Serving a number of important towns and cities, including beautiful Bordeaux, the River Garonne flows through beautiful French countryside, presenting you with stunning views to enjoy from your smaller cruise ship. Just upstream from Bordeaux, the Garonne meets the Dore River and forms Western Europe's largest estuary, the Gironde.

Day 14: Southampton

Today your cruise comes to an end as you arrive in Southampton and disembark.
