Sail Date: Feb 2015
Cabin: Twin Outside

As a birthday present to ourselves, my husband and I booked our very first cruise experience with Fred.OLSEN departing on 23 February for 16 nights.

The voyage was a plane journey from London Gatwick to Bridgetown Barbados where we joined the MS Braemar. After visiting St Lucia, Antigua, St Kitts and St Maarten, followed by six days cruising, we'd arrive in Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel, Azores, Portugal before heading home for the port of Dover.

With a full daily programme whilst at sea, from the minute we rose till going to bed time, there was little opportunity of being bored. I indulged in beginners' dance classes with Mike & Jan, read numerous books, either brought on board, or borrowed from the Braemar library. This holiday, was after all, an occasion of not only celebration of a significant life landmark, but also a chance to wind down and recharge our batteries.

Cabin Review

Twin Outside

Cabin D

Comfortable, twin beds, shower en suite. On deck 3 - hardly felt the sea swell. We spent little time in the cabin as space was limited, but we had plenty of wardrobe, drawer space, hairdryer, phone/intercom and TV.
