Cruise Description

16 Night Cruise sailing from Bridgetown to Dover aboard Braemar.

Elegant and captivating describes the atmosphere that abounds on Braemar. She is perfectly suited for warm weather cruising and continues to attract plaudits.

After her major refit and lengthening procedure, Braemar will feature over eighty passenger cabins and suites with balconies. She will also become the second of Fred Olsen ships to feature a pub, which will, on occasion, also offer entertainment in the form of a late night comedian or jazz.

Highlights of this cruise:

Barbados is an ideal Caribbean destination, whether you want to bake in the sun or spend your time discovering island life and culture.

The beaches along the West and South coasts are lovely. Because they're open to the public, though, they lack the privacy some visitors may seek. Elsewhere on the island, linked by almost 900 miles of good roads, are small villages, historic plantation houses, stalactite-studded caves, a wildlife preserve, and the Andromeda Gardens, one of the most attractive small tropical gardens in the world. Culturally, Barbados has retained a very British atmosphere: Afternoon tea is a ritual, cricket is the national passion, and a few luxury hotels request a jacket and tie at dinner.

But Barbados is true blue Caribbean as well, with classic sand beaches, and wild monkeys in the jungle.

St. Lucia is the second largest of the Windward Islands. Located between St. Vincent and Martinique, there is a hint of the South Pacific about this lush, beautiful island. Castries, the capital city of St. Lucia is one of the most beautifully situated Caribbean cities. Surrounded by hills, its large, safe harbor at the head of a wide bay is a constant hive of activity. Castries is a major port of call for cruise ships, which dock at Pointe Seraphine.

The spacious Derek Walcott Square features the 19th-century Catholic Cathedral standing in the shade of a 400-year-old samaan tree. There is also a colorful, bustling market. Morne Fortune, ‘hill of good luck’, affords the visitor the chance to inspect the fortification which defends Castries. It also provides a magnificent panorama of the city and the surrounding area.

There are a wide variety of shopping experiences from Castries market, where local crafts are available, to Po inte Seraphine and La Place Carenage, two duty free shopping centers in Castries where resort wear, Colombian Emeralds jewelry, cosmetics and perfumes are available. A variety of shopping malls with extended opening hours offer a wide selection of boutiques and restaurants.

St Johns
Shop on Redcliffe and Heritage Quays in Antigua's capital, sunbathe on one of 365 beaches, or visit historic Nelson's Dockyard, a splendid renovation which houses quaint shops, restaurants and a museum.

Ponta Delgada
Ponta Delgada is a charming Portuguese town at the tourist heart of the Azores, in the North Atlantic. Museums and monuments are everywhere, and the historic streets connect everything from hotels and churches to shops and restaurants. Its huge first class marina harbours boats from all around globe and its nightlife attracts people from all over. In the evenings, especially during the summer, throngs of people promenade along the Infante Dom Henrique Avenue (by the seaside).

Dover is a small seaside village with a huge history. It is also the main port for the ferries to France, Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as a cruise ship port. Dover dates back centuries and played a critical roll during WWII. Dover's small, but quaint village is a wonderful place to take in everything English.

Dover stands beneath the famous White Cliffs which are topped by its massive castle, and overlooks the Straits of Dover. It is an excellent place to watch the worlds busiest shipping lanes.

Dover has a wonderful historical district with a great pedestrian shopping street (Cannon Street). Shops are found along the main street and on the side streets that adjoin it. The best place to start is from Market Square close to the underpass that leads to the oceanfront. Other attractions include the Dover museum, St Mary’s Cathedral and the Secret War Time Tunnels.
