We arrived at 15:30 for check in, no queue, straight to check in point, straight through security and boarded at 15:45 - brilliant efficiency.

Braemar show company were, as always, excellent. The Neptune lounge is a little tight but up front and personal fit shows. Visiting entertainers were also very high standard.

Service and Staff

All of Fred Olsennships have the most amazingly friendly and efficient service. They always remember us, our drinks and cabin number very quickly.

All areas very clean and good condition. Public rooms, restaurants and bars are all comfortable furnished.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
All Braemar cabins are small (about 140sq ft), very little wardrobe and drawer space. However with a bit of ingenuity everything gets packed away. Cases stored under bed nicely, for filling with dirty washing.

Ship tip

Don’t pack too much!! & be ready for a small / cosy cabin!

Fantastic cruise along the River Seine to arrive in Rouen. 1.8 mile walk along promenade to the town or shuttle bus. Very interesting town with lots to see. Don’t bother with an excursion there plenty here.
