Those who know me will know that I am an avid Fred. Olsen Cruise fan. Having travelled with them many times, I love their smaller more intimate ships and their friendly and attentive staff. Awarded ‘Best for Itineraries’ in the Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Picks Awards for the third year running, Fred. Olsen offer a cruise holiday experience like no other. Sailing from Southampton and fly-cruising to exotic locations around the globe, they bring some of the world’s greatest destinations and experiences closer with their extensive programme of expertly-crafted cruise holidays.

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: Southampton, England

Embark

Day 2: Cruising the sea

Day 3: Kiel Canal Transit

Connecting the North Sea, at the mouth of the Elbe River, to the Baltic Sea at Holtenau, the Kiel Canal is one of the world’s busiest and most important shipping routes. Slicing a man-made path through the German countryside, this 61-mile-long marvel of engineering allows vessels to avoid 250 nautical miles of sea sailing on average, ensuring a faster and safer passage through Europe.

Day 4: Aabenraa, Denmark

The Danish municipality of Aabenraa is beautifully situated at the bottom of the Aabenraa fjord, surrounded by natural woodland.

The borderland to the south offers dazzling scenery along the Flensburg Fjord with a view over the Ox Islands and the nearby Flensburg. Aabenraa literally means open beach, and its white-sandy beaches and calm waters are perfect for sailing and kayaking adventures. Many buildings and monuments in this charming historic settlement date back to the 13th century, and notable examples of historic architecture include St. Nikolai Church (dedicated to the Saint of Seafaring) and Queen Margaret’s Brundlund Castle.

Day 5: Cruising Limfjorden & arrive in Aalborg, Denmark

Day 6: Fredericia, Denmark

The Danish fortress town of Fredericia in Eastern Jutland boasts an intriguing medieval and military past, stretching back to the Thirty Years’ War. Founded by Frederick III in 1650, the old ramparts and historic fortifications can be seen on a stroll through the delightful town centre, and are peppered with statues, cannons and gates.

Day 7: Copenhagen, Denmark

With its vibrant atmosphere, modern culture and beautiful architecture, Copenhagen is the essence of Scandinavian cool. One of Europe's oldest and most popular cities, Copenhagen is also one of the cleanest and most cosmopolitan. Its narrow streets are always busy with welcoming locals and are lined with colourful cafes, bars, shops and places to eat. Its bridges ring with cycling commuters and the pristine waterways make visiting this city a wonderful experience.

Day 8: Hundested, Denmark

The name Hundested, the tiny town in the northern district of Zealand in eastern Denmark, originates from the adjoining Seal Reef. Its pretty harbour was first built at the end of the 19th century, and this town between sea and fjord, and is known for quiet beaches that are perfect to stroll.

Day 9: Kiel Canal Transit

Connecting the North Sea, at the mouth of the Elbe River, to the Baltic Sea at Holtenau, the Kiel Canal is one of the world’s busiest and most important shipping routes. Slicing a man-made path through the German countryside, this 61-mile-long marvel of engineering allows vessels to avoid 250 nautical miles of sea sailing on average, ensuring a faster and safer passage through Europe.
