Your Cruise Ship


MS Braemar

A timeless style flows throughout Braemar’s interiors. Large windows bathe the ship’s public areas in natural light and provide spectacular views, and the polished wooden fixtures, decadent fabrics and elegant décor assume the feel of a traditional country house hotel. One of the focal points on Braemar is the beautifully painted, five-deck-high Atrium area, while the cascading outside decks at the stern enhance the ship’s elegant profile and offer stunning vistas no matter which outside deck you’re on.


Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is a family-owned favourite in the British cruise market offering guests a traditional cruising experience from many ports across the UK. For 2021 Fred. Olsen have added two new vessels to their fleet – The Bolette and the Borealis. Each vessel has its own unique style and personality and will bring exciting new features for our guests to enjoy.


  • More space throughout the ships

  • Original artwork and premium décor

  • An all-weather swimming pool with a retractable roof

  • A wide choice of restaurants, lounges and bars

  • More balcony cabins and suites

  • Culinary demonstration and wine tasting venues

  • A classic two-tiered theatre

  • Dedicated meeting spaces, perfect for groups

  • Additional spa facilities including a thermal suite, hydrotherapy pool and more treatment rooms


These two ships along with the classic-styled mid to small size ships; Balmoral and Braemar, allow for docking in smaller, unique ports of call. For 2021 we feature cruises with three of their popular vessels, all offering that quintessential English feel! We can’t wait to welcome you on board.
