About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Nearly 400 crew members provide attentive, friendly service on this sleek 929-passenger leisure ship with an impressive five-deck atrium. Polished wood, subtle lighting, and gleaming brass create a stylish feel. Spacious bright lounges have casual, contemporary décor. Itineraries include routes to the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Baltic, or Norwegian fjords. Two pools and children’s pool are separated by twin whirlpools. Executive chefs oversee good food quality in formal and casual restaurants. Excursions are available at every port of call to enhance the British-flavored experience. Interesting lectures, shows, presentations, and an open library keep multigenerational passengers and families satisfied.
Once the Crown Dynasty, Braemar is more modern in design and layout than her older fleetmates with pretty, cascading decks surrounding sunbathing space on the top deck. Braemar primarily sails one- to two-week itineraries and shorter minicruises for which she is well-suited. Public rooms on the Lounge Deck are surrounded by a wraparound promenade lined with cushioned deck chairs. Braemar's off-center towering atrium opens up to public rooms on two successive decks above the Lounge Deck. An interior designed with warm colors and light woods are made even brighter with large floor-to-ceiling windows.
Extensively refurbished in 2008, Braemar was cut in half and a 102-foot midsection was inserted, which added an observatory lounge, a pub, a restaurant, a second swimming pool with expanded deck space, and increased the number of cabins. At the heart of the ship, the open-concept Braemar Room is adjacent to the library, card room, Morning Light Pub, and the boutique.
