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.

Day 1 - Southampton

Days 2 & 3 - At Sea

Day 4 - Copenhagen

Arriving into Copenhagen, the delights of the Danish royal palaces and castles are all within easy reach from Braemar’s city centre docking location. Historic sites well worth exploring include the attractive Nyhavn waterfront district and Tivoli Gardens.

Day 5 - At Sea

Day 6 - Helsinki

Charming Helsinki is your next port of call to explore. The UNESCO-listed sea fortress and the neoclassical architecture of Senate Square sit alongside many wonderful galleries, museums and shops.

Days 7 & 8 - St. Petersburg

An overnight stay in St. Petersburg follows. This stylish city is a treasure trove of iconic landmarks, including the Hermitage and Faberge Museums, Peterhof Palace and the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood.

Day 9 - At Sea

Day 10 - Ronne

The contrast that awaits on the Danish island of Bornholm is a dramatic one. While Rønne’s pretty cobbled streets and halftimbered houses are interesting in their own right, it’s the 13th century Hammershus – the largest castle ruins in Northern Europe – which presents the standout moment at this destination.

Day 11 - Travemunde

Travemünde follows, where Braemar docks close to its charming streets, lined with traditional houses, shops and cafés. The adventure concludes with a scenic cruise through the stunning Kiel Canal, a feat only possible for smaller ships.

Days 12 & 13 - At Sea

Day 14 - Southampton
