We had really been looking forward to this cruise since we had booked it for a small fortune on a special loyalty members’ booking day almost two years earlier!
Fred’s promo promised “some of the most unique and authentic sights and experiences Greece has to offer, this outstanding itinerary features an extensive array of highlights. Cultural gems, ancient archaeological treasures, ...
We chose this cruise because the sailing date and the itinerary suited us.
The cabin on deck 4 was very small but well designed and the large window was beneficial.
The food was excellent and the service also very good.
The drinks package was ok but we were often charged on our account for drinks that we had not had. This did not matter materially as we were not paying but we did wonder ...
We usually cruise on larger ships than Braemar, mainly P and O and Princess, but were attracted by the itinerary and timing of this cruise. We need not have been concerned about the ship being smaller as it turned out to have many advantages over the larger ships.
Embarkation and disembarkation were swift and efficient, more so than on many larger ships.
Our cabin was on a lower deck than ...
My wife and I have sailed many times with Fred Olsen but rarely since they ended their Flagship golf package. However, we chose to sail again with them due to the interesting ports of call on the way to Venice and back from Southampton.
The Good Points:
- Overall good food, excellent waiter service
- Superb singing and dancing from the entertainment team
- Excellent itinerary
The entertainment was excellent on board, especially the Braemar entertainment team with their amazing new " queen" tribute, stunning harmonies from the singers and fast strong dancers, really a highlife of our trip.
The team could also be seen throughout the day chatting and helping passengers, VERY PROFESSIONAL.
All staff on board friendly and helpful, what a brilliant short break we had. ...
Only the second time on this ship. Checking in and embarkation very good. Muster was quick and efficient, sailed on time.
Our cabin 7054 on bridge deck was adequate, although storage room was not the best we have had on other Fred Olsen ships.
Our cabin stewardess was superb, efficient without going over the top. Adaptors were already in our cabin for use of the tea/coffee facility.
for those of you considering a cruise with Fred Olsen, i can definately recommend it. I wasnt sure whether I would enjoy it or not - hence a mini cruise. The boat is not too big, but has plenty to do. The cabins are lovely and the one we stayed in had Lots of storage space and kept beautifully clean. We dined in the Grampian and waitors there were so welcoming. The food was lovely with plenty ...
We enjoyed the cruise - especially the sail-in to Venice - which was the highlight with the stunning views from our balcony. We've cruised many times with Fred, Olsen but were disappointed that this time
- The savings that all lines are having to make are beginning to show on this Cruise, initially the lack of toiletry bag in the cabin was an indicator of savings yet it was just the start of more ...
After having booked our cruise via a travel agent and requested first sitting, we were told that a £2.00 per person per night would apply to the booking to get 1st sitting on Braemar .We were also told that we would have to pay extra monies if our luggage was over a certain weight,which I thought was rather odd for a Dover to Dover Embarkation and Disembarkation.
We are seasonal cruisers and have ...
