Ship Facts: Braemar Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Braemar Deck Plans
7 night cruise to Canaries on Fred Olson Braemar
We stayed in Balcony Suite 7033 which was excellent. The cabin was large, bathrobes, slippers, fruit basket and canapes were a luxury touch. the balcony had a large overhang which obstructed the sun unless it was first thing in the morning but this did not prevent our enjoyment of our own bit of space. We ate on the balcony in a morning and late afternoon.

There can always be found a sunbed on deck, and the hot tubs and pools were good, nice and warm.

Bar service could be a little slow at times.

Food in the restaurant in an evening was excellent and could not be faulted.

Entertainment left a lot to be desired and was geared up for the older people on board. There were a lot of elderly people on this cruise and we found it to be a little bit old fashioned. This is not a ship for young people and all we heard were people trying to out do each other a to where they had been before on a cruise, who they had been with and what cabins they had. Some people could also moan for days about everything, if they did not like the cabin or the service they should have paid a little more. Would we go again, maybe but not to the Canaries in February. This is definately a ship for the elderly.
