Thanks to Braemar’s  shorter, shallower dimensions you’ll experience unforgettable scenic cruising of narrow fjords and waterways on this incredible eight night sailing; and take in spectacular landscapes and highly-rated natural wonders which are out of reach to larger cruise ships.

 

You’ll take advantage of your ship’s smaller size from the very beginning of your foray into the fjords, sailing first along the glassy waters of the Lysefjord – lined by soaring mountains and rugged cliff faces – and the pretty Karmsund Strait, both of which are size-restricted. Then, tucked away within Hardangerfjord – Norway’s second longest fjord – you’ll discover enchanting Eidfjord. Here you can experience an exhilarating fjord kayaking adventure; or take a tour to marvel at the beautiful Vøringfoss Waterfall. The fascinating Hardangervidda Nature Centre is well worth a visit too. Sailing back along Hardangerfjord in the afternoon will present views of gorgeous orchards and towering mountains, before Braemar  diverts into Maurangerfjord to offer you a chance to capture the cascading Furebergfossen Waterfall.

 

The magnificent Jotunheimen Mountains and Jostedalbreen – mainland Europe’s largest glacier – are just two of the awe-inspiring sights awaiting you next, during a day in idyllic Skjolden. From here the Nigardsbreen Glacier, an arm of the astonishing Jostedalbreen, and the spellbinding Jostedalen Valley are within easy reach too. After taking in the scenic delights ashore, Braemar  will guide you on another magical evening of scenic cruising along Lustrafjord, Sognefjord – Norway’s longest fjord – and into Nærøyfjord, one of National Geographic’s  top two Natural World Heritage Sites. Finally, after immersing yourself in the outstanding beauty and tranquillity of stunning waterways and pretty fjord villages, you’ll visit two of Norway’s most vibrant cities before heading home. Take the chance to explore the historic Bryggen Wharf and ride the funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen in Bergen; then discover the many attractions of Stavanger – a former European capital of Culture.

 

Braemar’s timeless style and elegance will capture your senses. Large windows bathe the ship’s interiors in natural light and provide spectacular views; while polished wooden fixtures, shining brass fittings, decadent fabrics and carefully designed decor assume the feel of a traditional country house hotel. Capable of comfortably accommodating up to 929 guests, Braemar  has a unique, intimate feel with friendly staff offering a fantastic level of personal service. Catering to your every want and need, they will learn your name and your favourite tipple, how you prefer your steak and perfectly prepare your breakfast every morning.

 

On board Braemar you’ll find a superb selection of restaurants, bars and lounges offering sumptuous cuisine, a wide range of beers, wines and spirits and fantastic entertainment. Enjoy a delicious buffet-style lunch at the Palms Café and a expertly prepared, five-course a la carte dinner at the Thistle and Grampian Restaurants; refresh at the Marquee poolside bar in the sunshine; or perhaps enjoy cosy drink in the familiar surroundings of Morning Light Pub. Traditional afternoon tea in the Observatory Lounge is not-to-be-missed, and be sure to take in a show in the Neptune Lounge.

 

One of the focal points on Braemar is a beautifully painted, five-deck high Atrium which leads to the fully-equipped Fitness Centre, Palms Café, Coral Club and the Thistle Restaurant; while the cascading decks at the stern enhance the ship’s elegant profile and offer stunning vistas no matter which outside deck you’re on.
