Ocean Cruise

Rivers of Spain and France

A no-fly cruise from Southampton

The beauty of smaller cruise ships such as Fred. Olsen’s Braemar is that they can negotiate some of Europe’s great rivers as well as its enchanting coastal waters. This superb no-fly cruise presents both perspectives on a journey to southern Spain, exploring en route the rivers Seine, Gironde, Garonne and Guadalquivir. Unlike the ‘usual’ ports of call, it offers the chance to enjoy Rouen, Paris, Bordeaux and Seville, the latter during the fabulous Feria de Abril festival, along with the world-famous wines and delicious cuisine associated with them.

  • £100 per person onboard credit

  • Varied daytime activities, lectures, talks and evening entertainment
