Yes, it does. All Fred. Olsen ships except the "Black Prince" have this facility. Tea, coffee and biscuits are replaced on a daily basis.

Thank you for your answer - i'm a great fred olsen fan, but up until this year the braemar never went where and when i wanted to go.

No biscuits in our cabin 4155. Should I be dashing off a letter of complaint to Fred ? :-).

I must confess that I had the same problem on the "Balmoral" in November but was told that biscuits would be reinstated. Judging by the rough ride that ship had in the Bay of Biscay just recently I suppose they will be supplying broken biscuits! I'm sure there will be plenty of people raising this with Fred. I remember some years ago that they forgot to load the "on the pillow" chocolates and there was nearly a mutiny!

As a point of interest, should we have had towel animals? Seriously, our cabin was probably the last on our deck to be serviced, at times we had to interrupt the stewardess at about 12.45 so we could freshen up before lunch. Is this a case of Fred cutting down on staff?

Returned from a cruise on the Braemar yesterday. Only used facility in cabin once (suggest bottled water) because there is a 24hr tea/coffee service in the Palms Cafe. Hope you enjoy your cruise as much as our party did. We love the Braemar. Jackie.

Do they charge for coffee/tea and biscuits supplied in the cabin? Also is the Palms Cafe 24 hour dining ? We are sailing transatlantic on the 27 October, our first time with Fred Olsen although we have cruised many times before over the years. Thank you.

There is a kettle/supplies. I suggested bottled water because I used water from the tap and it tasted strange. To be honest I only made tea once because by the time I got up (I am single and my friends had a twin cabin), it was breakfast time and during the day there is tea and coffe available (24 hrs I think). We were out on short trips all but 3 days. Palms Cafe only operate at meal times - we always ate in The Thistle for dinner and occasionally used the Palms at lunch time (you can use any restaurant at lunch time). I have read some adverse comments which surprise me - I guess all our expectations are different but my preference is for cruising on a smaller ship and this obviously limits to some extent what can be offered. The staff/crew just excellent. Hope you enjoy your trip.

So this week marks the Japan week promoting various different cruise lines that are incorporating a stay and cruise, with new 2018 itineraries now in place.So why is Japan a top destination in 2017 – Here’s what my colleague Holly had to say.“Japan had proved to be a top destination for 2017 and is already in demand for 2018 so why is this the case? After visiting Japan myself in 2016 and also with Joanna Lumley’s Japan airing on ITV in September 2016 it really is of n...

Tell me what is on your Bucket List

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Have you had a chance to watch it yet?If you haven’t, I would recommend that you try to and catch up on the first two programmes – there will be 4 in total.To be honest I though it may be a bit cheesey!But I have to say that I ...
