wonderful Braemar Western Caribbean Cruise!!!!!!!!!

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
This was our second cruise with Fred Olsen! As for the first time we went with my wife sister and Husband. They are great company,to travel with!

The cabin was short of storage space, but we managed! the staff in all areas were superb, friendly, attentive and very helpful. Particularly the Grampian rest. waiters! Food was good ( Starters were a bit small).Breakfast, Luncheons and teas were excellent! Yes you do have to queue at Buffets, but all passengers were really friendly and Chatty!Wine list was adequate and prices reasonable!

The Neptune club offered first class shows. Cocktails and drinks again are reasonable!

The shipping company took care of transferring the luggage, from the plane to the ship directly, and on the return journey our luggage again was taken to the plane

and we were even given boarding cards in advance! Great stuff!

The only gripe was the security check at Montego Bay. We had to queue for 2 More hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trips are well organised, but not cheap! We did several ourselves, just as good and much much cheaper.

Finally the communication on Board was excellent!

All in all a great cruise thank you to all the efforts of the Staff!!!!!!!! Less

Cabin review: C4134 Superior Twin Outside

Our cabin 0n deck 4 with outside window, was rather small, the main problem was the lack of storage! we really had to leave some clothes in the cases, in order to have sufficient storage space! The Maid service however was really great! Toilet and shower also a bit small! Ok for us as we are on the small side, but it would be problematic for large passengers!!! We felt that on the Balmoral the same quality of cabin was bigger!!!!!!

did not spend much time at the port as we took a trip on the following day around the Island. But from what we saw Port facilities are quite good!

good facilities and shops are very close to the ship terminal.

Tour was good well organised and good value for money!!!!! The old Town is fantastic!

Lots of facilities and shops outside the ship Terminal! Electrical goods very good value for money. The tour we did was 7 hours long and included lunch!

THIS WAS THE BEST PORT!!!! Lots of shops and restaurants, very interesting places. The Terminal is new and very clean and safe!!!!!

Did not spend much time at the terminal, took a walk and look around shops, but they all seem to sell the same staff!!!!!!!!!!!!

again good facilities around the terminal. we did the tour of the Island ourself,and it was great! good driver, visited nice places, stopped to mtaste mangos and papayas!

a Band was there to greet passengers! Obviously they expected a tip! but they were good! Shops and facilities near the terminal quite good!!! Again we did the tour of the Island ourselves, cheap and interesting, we visited all the places described on the ship tour for a quater of the price.
