BRAEMAR – tight squeeze

Braemar is now the smallest ship in the Fred. Olsen fleet. It has an uncrowded, intimate feel with just over 900 guests. It is also Fred. Olsen’s only small ship given the definition of under 1,000 guests being small. With a flatter hull shape, Braemar can take guests closer to smaller, shallower destinations, and being that small it can navigate some of the world’s most remarkable waterways, including Greece’s show-stopping Corinth Canal. It is a river going cruise ship.

The Braemar’s largest restaurant, the Thistle restaurant is located on Main Deck 4 at the base of the ship’s beautiful Atrium. It is elegantly decorated in creamy-beige and mocha coloured furnishings. For an intermate evening out, at the top of the atrium is the cosier Grampian restaurant. As part of Braemar’s extensive refit in late 2017, the less formal Palms Café has new, stylish upholstery, soft furnishings and seating.
