Guest's review of Fred Olsen Cruises, Braemar

“Much as expected - holiday camp on sea. Transfer from...”

Written on: 16/12/2010

Much as expected - holiday camp on sea. Transfer from airport to ship took far too long as did getting our luggage. Booked balcony suite but thought that bathroom was very small and not worth what we had paid for the cabin. When sailing at night, cabin creaked and some nights we felt we would be tossed out of bed due to rough seas. On sea days (fortunately there were only 2) didn't like sitting on deck in rows like sardines and the pools were small. Enjoyed the food, the excursions we did were well organised and the evening entertainment enjoyable particularly 4th Dimension and the Braemar Show Company. The crew worked very hard and no doubt long hours so that things went smoothly. On the last day the waiting around on the Braemar and at the airport was too long although I accept this was due to the turn round.

This seems very similar to my thoughts. My husband and I went on this same cruise as we wanted to see many other Caribbean islands but whilst we enjoyed most aspects of the cruise such as 4th Dimension, the Braemar Show Company plus the food and the crew worked very hard we felt that the cruise was not value for money. We have holidayed in Barbados many times travelling by Virgin Atlantic but feel that cruises are vastly overatted. So it is back to a land based holiday next time on Tobago
