At the heart of Braemar is her stunning atrium, which spans five decks and has a glass wall along one side with fantastic views out to sea. Explore the onboard shops where you can buy jewellery, perfume, clothing and cosmetics at duty-free prices; enjoy some peace and quiet with a good novel in the library, or join in with quizzes and tournaments such as bridge, backgammon and chess in the card room. Enjoy live entertainment day and night in the Morning Light Pub, with its sociable atmosphere and traditional decor; take in the panoramic views from the Observatory Lounge with a pre-dinner drink, or dance the night away in the Neptune Lounge and the Coral Club, which host live music as well as shows, cabaret acts and comedians.
You'll have plenty of time to relax and unwind on your cruise and there's no better place to do this than in the Atlantis Spa. There are a whole host of indulgent treatments available including Indian head massage, body wraps, hot stone aromatherapy and reflexology. You can also make use of the adjacent beauty salon which offers a full range of hair treatments and styling plus manicures and pedicures. The onboard gym is fully-equipped with fitness machines including cross-trainers, treadmills and weights machines, and an exercise area for daily fitness classes such as yoga and pilates. Golf fans can practise their swing up on deck in the golf nets and there are also plenty of deck games to join in with including shuffleboard and quoits.
Did you know that Braemar was originally smaller in size than she is now? During her 2008 refit, an extra section of just over 100 feet was inserted in the middle of the ship which allowed for extra cabins and suites to be added, as well as other dining and leisure facilities.
Braemar is a family-friendly ship and welcomes all children aged 6 months to 17 years of age. However, due to the size of the ship, organised children's activities are only held during Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays when the minimum number of children on the cruise is reached. The children's club is generally available for children aged 5 to 11 years, but this may increase if a greater number of children of a particular age group are sailing onboard. The club is fully supervised by trained staff and activities include treasure hunts, competitions, games, arts and crafts, parties, sports competitions and cooking classes.

The Thistle Restaurant is the main restaurant on board Braemar and it opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner with waiter service. The restaurant operates open seating for breakfast between 7.15am and 10am and for lunch between 12pm and 2pm.
In the evening, there are two fixed times for dinner; 6pm for first sitting and 8.15pm for second sitting, and you have the same table each night of your cruise.
The Grampian Restaurant offers a more intimate dining experience due to its smaller size, and as it's located high up at the rear of Marquee Deck, it also has fantastic sea views. The Grampian Restaurant has the same open seating for breakfast and lunch as the Thistle Restaurant, with fixed times for dinner in the evening at 6.15pm and 8.30pm. You will also have the same table in the restaurant for the duration of your cruise.
If you want to experience the ultimate British tradition then there is no better way to do this than with afternoon tea in the Observatory Lounge. Enjoy a selection of delicious freshly-prepared finger sandwiches, cakes, pastries and the all-important scones, jam and cream, plus premium tea from Taylors of Harrogate. A cover charge of approx. £6.95 per person applies and you will need to book a place in advance as seating is limited.
The Palms Cafe is Braemar's informal buffet restaurant so it's a really great place to eat when you want to enjoy a more casual meal. There aren't any fixed dining times or set table places so you can come and go as you please during the day and evening. The restaurant usually opens for breakfast from 7am until 9.30am, featuring a wide choice of hot and cold food including cereal, cooked breakfast such as omelette and English breakfast, fruit and pastries.
Lunch is served between midday and 2.30pm, once again offering hot and cold dishes including sandwiches, pasta and soup. The restaurant opens for dinner from 6pm until 9.30pm and there will often be a specific theme to the dishes such as American or Indian, plus various desserts and sweet treats. If you're still peckish after the evening entertainment then you can enjoy a selection of late night snacks and desserts in the Supper Club from around 11.30pm to 12.30am.
