Cruise Description

14 Night Cruise sailing from Southampton roundtrip aboard Braemar.

Featuring overnight stays in fascinating, attraction-packed cities; over 300 nautical miles of unforgettable scenic cruising along beautiful, size-restricted rivers in France and Spain; and an opportunity to be part of a spectacular Spanish celebration, this fantastic fortnight aboard Braemar showcases what makes cruising with Fred. Olsen so special.

First-up on this captivating itinerary is La Pallice, your gateway to La Rochelle. Affectionately known as the ‘White City’ thanks to its fine limestone facades, La Rochelle is well worth a visit; although you might prefer to tour to the famous Cognac region or enchanting marshlands of Marais Poitevin from La Pallice instead. Then it’s on to Bordeaux where a collection of unmissable highlights will be just the length of the gangway away. Over 360 historic sites await in the UNESCO-listed heart of Lonely Planet’s 'top city to visit in 2017', including Calihau Gate, the 13th century Cathédrale Saint-André, the Grand Théâtre and Cours du Chapeau-Rouge. An overnight stay affords you time to take in all the sights at your leisure, or perhaps venture to renowned Medoc region vineyards where some of the world’s very best wines are produced. Whatever you choose to do, you’re sure to look forward to the memorable journey along the gorgeous Gironde and Garonne Rivers after departing Bordeaux.

Two days at sea follows as Braemar heads for the stunning Spanish city of Seville. Unlike larger ships, Braemar can sail straight into the city via the narrow and picturesque Guadalquivir River. This means you can experience all the excitement and festivity of the fabulous Feria de Abril from the moment you step ashore. Your overnight stay here coincides with the final day of this spectacular annual festival, so you can watch the horse-drawn carriages and flamenco dancers as they parade through the pretty streets, or even simply take in historic highlights such as the gothic cathedral and Plaza de España. Be sure to back on board your ship to enjoy unspoilt views of the fantastic fireworks at midnight. Finally, before returning to the UK, it’s back to France and the historic city of Rouen. Yet another overnight stay will afford your time to discover architectural wonders such as the incredible Cathédrale Notre-Dame, see the iconic Gros Horloge and visit the exact spot where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake; or embark on an unforgettable journey to romantic Paris. All this before enjoying a wonderful glide along the River Seine, the perfect finalé to this memorable cruise adventure.

Highlights of this cruise:

La Pallice (for La Rochelle), France
Founded by Eleanor of Aquitaine in the 14th century, and once a bastion of French Protestantism, this handsome old Atlantic seaport has had a turbulent history.

Bordeaux, France
Beautiful Bordeaux is world renowned for it's famous wines, but there's a lot more to this fine French city than vineyards and claret.

Seville, Spain
Seville is a delightful port to visit on your cruise holiday.

Normandy's delightful 2,000 years old 'museum city' and busy river-port on the meandering Seine.
