Sail Date: Jul 2013
Cabin: Superior Twin Outside

I sailed on the Fred. Olsen "Braemar" from Dover on 31 July. It is some years since I sailed on this ship and the first time since it was "stretched" although I have sailed many times on other shipd of this cruise line. It is a fine looking ship which has been well maintained. I feel there are too many passengers for the accommodation in the public rooms. This is especially so when the weather is inclement.

The ship called in the Faroe Islands (Thorshaven), Iceland (Reykjavik, Isafjordur and Husavik) and South Norway (Maloy, Olden and Bergen). The ship remained overnight in Reykjavik.

Embarkation at Dover was very rapid. I was on board the ship in less than 30 minutes from arriving at the cruise terminal. Disembarkation was slowere but very efficiently organised. I cleared the terminal very rapidly.

Cabin Review

Superior Twin Outside

Cabin C

An outside double cabin on deck 4 on a single occupancy basis. It was relatively small but well designed and comfortable. There was a picture window and there was efficient air conditioning. The shower room was slamm but well equipped. Drawer space was at a premium but there was plenty of hanging space. On a relatively short cruise this would be adequate but on a longer cruise with two passengers it would prove difficult. There was a degree of enging noise which I have not experienced on other Fred. Olsen ships. The cabin was serviced ewfficiently twice daily by a stewardess.
