Because my friend and I wanted to go to the places this cruise visited. I have cruised a few times and this is the first Fred Olsen and best one I've been on. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, I particularly liked the way you were given a table at lunch time, the food was presented and cooked well and a good variety. The ship was smaller than I been on before and I felt it was much better and more friendly. The entertainment was superb, also the activities. The night where the staff entertained us was brilliant it was good to see the different customs and dances. I went on a number of excursions which were brilliant with the exception of St Petersburg city visit which I think you need to go on foot (I couldn't walk well that's why I chose this excursion) The whole of the holiday from embarkation to disembarkation went like a dream and most enjoyable. (Thank you Braemar for a lovely cruise)

Small but we'll set out with everything you need and spotlessly clean. Leorosa was lovely and very helpful.
