I have cruised on the Braemar several times. There are normally 2 formal nights out of 14. A lounge suit or dinner jacket acceptable for men and cocktail dress for ladies. You can always dine in the Palms cafe which serves an excellwent buffet every night and is informal or casual dress.

Try Ocean Village 1 or 2 or Island escape, or NCL Freestyle Cruises you wont need to dress up on any unless you want too.

The Braemar is a lovely ship and the staff and crew were fabulous when we cruised with them in 2002. We have been on larger ships since and always prefered the more personal touch of the Braemar. The formal nights are not every night, so you will only have to dress up a few times or if you go into certain restaurants, it will tell you in the brochure. If you do not want to dress up at all, then either NCL or Ocean Village would be your best bet, NCL are good and larger ships, mostly Americans though, which isn't a bad thing, if you like Americans, that is. Good luck and bon voyage whatever you choose.

Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...

They are all Cruise Ship Godmothers!Every time a new ship is set to launch we still love to guess who will be chosen, Godmothers lists are like reading through ‘Who’s Who’ list for the Rich and Famous (and also not so famous)It is a tradition to have a famous name to christen and bless a new ship and become the Godmother (not so many have Godfathers…)A ship Godmother by tradition is a well known face chosen to name the ship to bestow good luck and divine protection ove...

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...
