Great thanks. Very easy from start to finish . Thanks to John Hull .

Website improvements would be welcomed

21 May 2019

The ROL staff I spoke to were helpful and explained the options well. My only reservation was that it was not easy to access the information about the cruise I was interested in on your website. I didn't find a quick way of locating the cruise, finding what accommodation was available on each ship and the sailing dates of the ships with the suitable accommodation.

Easy and unhurried.

Everything was discussed and explained in full. All went smoothly.

Easy

I always get good service with ROL On the last cruise I had a query when I returned which was dealt with in a very professional manor. While ever I get good service I will continue to use you until either I run out of money or you run out of rivers

Great Service As Always

Darryl was really helpful. Nothing seemed too much trouble. He did not put us under any pressure to make a booking but gave us full information, following which we did make a further booking and were delighted with the service received.

The Ship


A timeless style flows throughout Braemar's interiors. Large windows bathe the ship's public areas in natural light and provide spectacular views, and the polished wooden fixtures, decadent fabrics and elegant décor assume the feel of a traditional country house hotel. One of the focal points on Braemar is the beautifully painted, five-deck-high Atrium area, while the cascading outside decks at the stern enhance the ship's elegant profile and offer stunning vistas no matter which outside deck you're on. Show less Capable of comfortably accomodating up to 929 passengers, Braemar has a uncrowded, intimate feel, with friendly staff providing a fantastic level personal, attentive service and catering to your every need. On board, guests can enjoy an unforgettable cruise holiday in the comfort and ample space of recently refreshed rooms and suites, and updated restaurants, bars and lounges offering sumptuous cuisine, a wide range of beers, wines and spirits, and fantastic daily entertainment from talented performers. What's more, as Braemar is the shortest of the four ocean-going ships in the Fred. Olsen fleet, it is perfect for cruising rivers and bringing you closer to the heart and highlights of towns and cities across Europe and beyond.
