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.
