Sail Date: Oct 2010
Cabin: Balcony Suite

We chose to cruise on the Braemar for our first ever cruise as the dates suited, we loiked the idea of no flying and I thought the weather would be kind!!!

Embarkation at Dover was a breeze, as suite customers we walked straight into lunch in the Thistle restaurant then up to our suite. Loved 7043, the suite is L shaped and you can partition off the sleeping area with a curtain. Large balcony and being mid to rear seemed well placed. Lots of wardrobe space. Bathroom small but excellent shower and efficient loo! Friends had 7010 which was lovely and bright but just one room and their balcony was smaller. They were very near the front of the ship and you could feel the difference.

As other posts say the first three days were rough! We did not realise how bad it was until more seasoned travellers and the crew put us right. Our friend was very poorly. At this time I thought the ship was really spacious but soon realised everyone was in bed!

Cabin Review

Balcony Suite

Cabin BS

Great suite, L shaped so can separate the bedroom from the sitting area. Balcony spacious with loungers and table/chairs. Quiet, only noise was about 6pm when the sunbeds on Deck 8 were being put away
