Fred olsen bar and drink's prices in general are very reasonable, on a par with pub prices outside London and possibly cheaper. And there's not the ridiculous 15% service charge imposed byh some cruise lines.

We were pleasantly surprised by the prices onboard all the Fred Olsen ships as many people had told us how expensive drinks are on cruise ships. We found wine with meals was cheaper than local restaurants and also cocktails were very reasonably priced compared with nightclubs here in the South East.

Are there formal nights, semi-formal nights and informal nights on board Braemar?

Yes - you normally get two formal nights per week and then a mixture of informal and casual nights - some of the casual nights are themed too eg western, British. On a 16 night cruise we had 4 formal nights, on the 13 night one we had 3 and last year which was 9 days we had 2 formal nights. When we got our tickets we were told how many formal nights there would be and what the themed casual nights were going to be. Have a lovely time - we did our first cruise on Braemar in 2004 and have had two subsequent cruises with Fred Olsen, we are booked again with them for next year.

NO.Roundabout £2 to £2.50 for Beers and Spirits when I was last on this Ship last October. Enjoy the friendliest Cruise you will ever take.

Travelling the Globe!

By Stacey Williams

I am so excited for tomorrow as I have been invited to London for the annual Globe Travel Awards. I have never been to an awards ceremony before so I was over the moon to receive an invite from the amazing MSC Cruises. My plan is to pack in the morning just before travelling as we have been so busy at Cruise HQ I have had no time to organize anything. My train is booked for 9am from Dumfries to Carlisle and then onto Euston. I will (hopefully) arrive at around 1pm. I then need to navigat...

At the end of December Royal Caribbean started advertising for Lifeguards on their ships.The Post Stated that candidates will need to perform rescue of Guests in danger of drowning and be vigilant to potential accidents.
