Title: 6 days to Ireland Summary: The ship is small and very friendly. Food is amazing!! Staff are so courteous and helpful. Would really recommend this ship if you want to relax and unwind. Three eating areas. Library – well stocked for such a small ship. Entertainment very good. There was not a lot of activities but what they provided was excellent. Only “tiny gripe” for us – we went on a shore excursion and came back to the ship after...

Title: Orange blossom Summary: Booked the cruise so we could see the orange blossom. Unfortunately it was late as Spain had a month of solid rain. It was the first time we had been on Braemar for about ten years. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The food, crew and entertainment were very good. Would definitely go again.

Title: In search of the Northern Lights Summary: Very good cruise in a very good ship. Our first cruise with Fred Olsen but would go with them again.We were not impressed with the Captain as he gave no reports of sights we were passing nothing to look out for as we were to understand we could have seen sea life plus we never saw him around the ship talking to his passengers on other ships we have always seen the captain around the...

Title: Fantastic cruise to South America Summary: We have just returned to the UK after a great cruise to South America on the Balmoral. The ship was wonderful, no complaints whatsoever. Entertainment was excellent, food was good, and crew ( cabin staff , entertainment team and dining room staff )were really friendly and efficient. I attended the craft class which was given by two fabulous women ( Christine and Hillary ), and the things we made were absolutely lovely. The Captain kept...

Title: Atlantic Odyssey Summary: The only real downside was the poor availability of the shore excursions, most of which were fully booked weeks before the cruise began and with a long waiting list. Fred Olsen’s response was that all shore excursions are offered on a first come first serve basis but that is not the point. There were significantly insufficient excursion places overall to meet the demand and therefore whatever order and however early guests tried to book, a...

Title: Outdated and Tired Summary: When are Fred Olsen going to replace the ships with newer and more modern ships and come into this century??? When looking around this ship both inside and on deck you can see just how old this ship is. It is having a two week refit in March but how much can be done in two weeks!!! NOTE: be warned, when the ship dispenses black smoke from its funnel the upper rear open decks suffer...

Title: Mum’s first cruise Summary: As the title suggests, this was mum’s first cruise at the age of 78. It was the 3 night River Seine Sojourn and gave her a good idea of what cruising entails. Despite a bumpier than expected crossing mum started to relax after dinner in the restaurant and was enthralled by the evening show – Bon voyage. The singers and dancers were full of energy and very talented, both shows were excellent. The comedian also...

Title: Another Good Trip Summary: Once again another great trip very well organised from booking to embarking and then it was just as much to do as you wanted or just relax and be waited on. Nothing was too much trouble we are off again in June

Title: Indian ocean Summary: Boudicca although small and compact, it was a very good traditional cruise, all staff were very attentive and willing to make sure we had a very good cruise. The cabin was much better than expected, plenty of wardrobe space and the bathroom facilities were much larger than the very modern ships in our opinion have become more like floating Butlins. Overall a very enjoyable cruise with a good itinerary apart from one port of call.

Title: Brilliant Boudicca Summary: I would like to share with you my experience on board Fred Olsen Boudicca, D1722 Scenic Spain 22nd September – 30th September 2017 round trip Liverpool. This was the first time we had used the port of Liverpool and was impressed with how convenient it is for us Northerners. When the car was parked with CPS at the ECHO arena, the stewards took our luggage and we didn’t see again till the cabin. This left...

Title: Cruising on a building site with no tv Summary: Braemar Southampton to the Caribbean 6th to 22nd December 2017. Was looking forward to this cruise on a lovely ship out of refit, what a joke. Late boarding in Southampton with no explanation was not a good start. Once on board we found that neither swimming pool and two of the lifts were unusable and the tv did not work. One pool was filled after about a week but the sundeck resembled a building site...

Title: Indian Ocean cruise December 2017 Summary: Boudicca badly needs refurbishment, some being done while on cruise but lots of rust visible on all windows. Ship going in dock for some work inn March. Pleased to see that FO has at last provided cushions for the plastic strip sun loungers on deck and hope they have provided them for Braemar as well. It has been a long standing complaint from all users.

Title: BEAUTIFUL BOUDICCA Summary: 4 nights on the Beautiful Boudicca around Santander and Balboa, two new beautiful destinations I would highly recommend visiting! In Santander and Balboa I took a coach tour to the major attractions. Santander light house – the views here are fantastic, we stopped off at the golden sandy beach then enjoyed a drink at one of the local bars with a view of the sea and Boudicca. In Balboa we visited the Guggenheim museum –...

Title: Boudicca Short Break Summary: I recently cruised on Fred Olsen’s Boudicca, we flew out to Santander and sailed back into Liverpool. On arrival, we had a bus tour around Santander before embarking on the ship. Although Boudicca is an older ship she had a very warm welcome and the staff were some of the most attentive I have come across while cruising. We had Superior Oceanview cabin which was spacious and has plenty of space to unload our luggage,...

Title: Azores cruise Summary: My first time with Fred Olsen Cruises and I had an excellent time my cabin 8028 though a little small was clean comfortable and well serviced there were a couple of rattles and a small amount of vibration but this is expected in an older ship and did not spoil my enjoyment beds were comfortable and I slept well. On board entertainment was very good and I also enjoyed taking part in activites such as...

Title: Cruising in the Aegean Sept 11th – 9th Oct 2017 Summary: Cruising on the Braemar was like joining a big family gathering. The ambience is fantastic, some passengers like old friends. The crew are treasures. To be greeted with “oh yes, half coffee, half hot water ma-am” by our waiter Jury after a two year break was unbelievable. The itinerary was good too (after all that’s why we chose it!!). With fantastic weather, good food and entertainment – what more could one want!!

Title: Islands of the Aegean Oct 2017 Summary: The itinerary was very good missed Santorini due to windy weather, the sun was out all day and every day for 26 days out of 28 so no complaints there. The food was not up to Balmorals standard last year but still good. The crew were up to usual high standard of friendliness which was a joy. The main gripe about this cruise was the amount of noise created below our cabin 3064 on deck...
