Re-assured following poor experiences

22 Oct 2018

The operator answered the phone promptly. Answered my questions regarding the ship, Q. Victoria, to my satisfaction which enabled me to make my booking immediately. The questions being asked were essential to completion owing to a recent bad experience with P&O - sold the Adonia and had to cancel our cruise which was for our Golden Wedding (through ROL) and a poor cruise experience with P&O (through ROL) on the Aurora a couple of years previously.

Overview


Featuring scenic cruising of beautiful, size-restricted waterways and calls into four cultural destinations, this incredible journey of discovery showcases the very best that Germany has to offer in just nine nights. Boasting an engrossing mix of stunning Hanseatic architecture, historic squares and youthful, recently developed districts, Hamburg – the first stop on your rewarding autumn escape – offers something for everyone. Here you could opt to admire centuries-old structures such as the imposing Rathaus and the striking steeple of St Nikolai; head into the vibrant city centre for a little retail therapy; or perhaps join a very special boat tour of the Alster Lake and learn of Hamburg’s seafaring traditions as you take in views of the impressive skyline. Thanks to Braemar’s smaller dimensions you will then depart Hamburg via the picturesque River Elbe and transit the Kiel Canal overnight before sailing the size-restricted Flensburg Fjord to Flensburg. Enjoy views of the unspoilt countryside lining both the German and Danish shores of the fjord; then go ashore to discover interesting museums, a selection of excellent cafés and restaurants, and several impressive churches. In nearby Glücksburg the wonderful Renaissance-style water castle is well worth taking a tour to see too. Then it’s on to Travemünde, a seaside resort town situated at the mouth of the Trave River. You’ll dock close to the charming centre of Travemünde, so you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy a relaxing wander along the delightful promenade lined with friendly pubs and bars; take in the historic highlights of the Old Town; and see the impressive steel barque sail ship Passat. Travemünde is also your gateway to the UNESCO-listed city of Lübeck, where an array of gabled houses and stunning churches from the Hanseatic era are yours to admire if you wish. Finally after navigating the Kiel Canal once again, Braemar will sail into Bremen via the River Weser – a route only permitted to smaller ships. Once docked, be sure to make the most of your overnight stay to explore the city to the full. Packed with attractions including the UNESCO-listed Market Square – home to several stunning gothic-style structures – and the contrasting delights of the medieval Schnoor and modern Überseestadt districts; Bremen has much to recommend it.
