great cruise, lovely staff who are all very helpful and friendly. good food and entertainment. Itinerary good with good tours. The best location was Bordeaux as the ship was right in the centre of the city. My cabin was noisy, but I had no alternative because it was the last available single. Very high cost for a single traveller. I would recommend this cruise.

Lovely Cruise by dekkbarb

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A very lovely 10 night break with my wife and three other members of the family. The staff onboard were 1st class and very professional at all times. Our first time to Denmark which we thought was a great place to visit. Roll on the next one on the Braemar next year.

Fantastic experience by dichris

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Fantastic - the reason we went was it seemed the best way to see some of the amazon and we were right. Fred Olsen staff are brilliant and i would consider going back, but be aware, it’s targeted at an older, very British market. Lectures were great - if you have a chance to see Jeff Clarke speak, take it. He’s just so enthusiastic about wildlife, it’s catching, and you learn so much.

Don’t do the amazon cruise if you are not a good sailor. The ship is flat bottomed - the larger ships would not be able to cruise the river - but when it comes to the ocean, it moved around a lot, and all the well travelled cruisers on the ship said this was the worst they’d been on in terms of movement apart from an Antarctic cruise in a force 10 gale. They have changed the itinerary now so instead of Barbados to Manaus and back, it’s now 2 cruises - one from Manaus to Barbados, and another from Barbados to Manaus, both 14 days, so there are just 3 sea days on each cruise rather than 6.

Get to the entertainment early to get a decent view.
