Braemar Cruise Review by Maura Hudson
- Sail Date: August 2017
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Superior Twin Outside
We had a wet day at sea and it was difficult to find somewhere to sit in the public lounges. We sometimes found it difficult to find a chair on the promenade deck in the shade, but there were plenty of loungers on the sun deck.
Unlike many ships there is not a theatre on board. Shows took place in the Neptune Lounge where the seating is not ideal for a good view.
We did 3 shore excursions, and although expensive, they were well organised and interesting. Our only complaint on the Bordeaux wine tour to Graves and Sauternes was that we were not given a 'nibble' to go with the wine - not even a slice of French baguette!
Disembarkation was very organised and our car was waiting for us as we got off the ship. We really enjoyed the Fred Olsen experience and will certainly use them again.
We had lots of hangers and enough space for our clothes.
Our only complaint was that it only had one chair ( apart from the dressing table chair) to sit on. There was room for another chair,which would have made watching TV easier for both of us, and on our wet sea day we could have stayed in our cabin instead of trying to find somewhere to sit in the public rooms.

Wine TastingInteresting tour, but we would have liked to have been given a little something to eat in between the wine tasting. Even a slice of French baguette!View All 35 Wine Tasting Reviews
Giverny VillageLovely to see Monet's garden and house but SO crowded. All tour groups were told to meet at the same place to go back to the coaches. It was chaotic when everyone moved off at once. An excellent guide.View All 8 Giverny Village Reviews
