Overview


Whether you have never sailed with Fred. Olsen before and want to experience the benefits of a cruising on board a smaller, more intimate ocean-going ship, or are a regular guest looking for a short, relaxing break away from it all, this is the perfect getaway. Your invigorating getaway begins with a short overnight sail from Southampton to France, where you’ll wake up to views of gorgeous countryside as Braemar glides along the River Seine into Rouen. Once docked, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the quaint, narrow streets lined with charming half-timbered houses and take in the city’s smorgasbord of historic highlights and cultural delights at your leisure. Don’t miss the incredible Gothic-style Cathédrale de Notre Dame, the 14th century Gros Horloge and Place du Vieux Marché, where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake. Alternatively you might prefer to journey to Paris and see the world famous landmarks of the ‘City of Lights’ – including the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe – illuminated in all their glory on a romantic evening tour to the French capital. After an extended two night stay Braemar will depart Rouen in the early morning and head back along the beautiful River Seine en route to Honfleur. Be sure to take your place on deck as your ship negotiates the winding meanders of the river and enjoy unspoilt views of the gorgeous, lush-green French countryside and pretty communes dotted along the riverbanks. Once docked in Honfleur an overnight stay will afford you time to wander the café-lined 16th century cobbled streets, see St Catherine’s Church and take in the pretty fishing harbour. Or perhaps you would prefer to embark on an engrossing tour to the iconic Norman city of Bayeux. Here you can visit the William the Conqueror Centre and marvel at the world-famous Bayeux Tapestry.

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.

Spin to the music at the Neptune Lounge, and take afternoon tea at the Coral Club. Leave the world behind in our serene Atlantis Spa, and surround yourself with horizon, as you walk the promenade.
