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.

Sky Dive in the Sunshine state

By Steve Fuller

It’s almost time for my annual Florida fix. I do like to try and squeeze in a trip to Florida every year. If I can of course. This time I’m doing something a little more than just the parks.I’ve signed up to do a sky dive. Moment of madness, impulsive booking, whatever but I’m going through with it. Tandem dive of course with a fully qualified instructor. I’m doing this jump at the highest altitude for a Tandem jump possible which is at 18000ft.We all have things...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...

Only in the lakes. We only bought a cheap older caravan to see how we got on. We have now been away about 5 times and we absolutely love it !! We have been to some lovely places in the lakes , Devo...
