Fly from Gatwick – Barbados – Santarem – Parintins – Manaus (overnight) – Tobago – Barbados – Fly to Gatwick
Fly in to Barbados where you’ll be transferred to join Braemar and sail south towards the Meeting of the Waters, a remarkable area where different coloured waters from the Amazon and Tapajos Rivers meet without mixing. You’ll continue south towards Brazil where your first port is Santarem, home of the Mercado Modelo or City Market, it’s filled with stores for you to peruse at your leisure. There is also an optional Maica Lake cruise where you can try to spot the elusive pink dolphin. The next day you’ll arrive in Patintins, Brazil, a small Indian village on an island in the Amazon and the site of the annual Boi Bumba festival.
Then spend two days in Manaus, the Amazon’s largest city. It’s the perfect place from which to explore the mid-Amazon region with riverboat tours and extra excursions aplenty! Journey through the myriad of tributaries, estuaries and small creeks where rich wildlife can be seen. You’ll spend some time cruising the Amazon River taking in the views and wildlife of this once in a lifetime destination, before arriving in Scarborough, Tobago for a day. Here, you can visit the fort built in the 18th century by King George and take in some of its fascinating and ever changing history at the Historical Museum, before you board the ship and head back to Bridgetown to catch your flight home.
The polished wood and shining brass fittings of Braemar offer elegant surroundings in which to explore. It is the second largest of Fred Olsen’s fleet carrying 929 passengers yet is small enough to sail into the smaller ports of call and get closer to the action. Renowned for its friendly atmosphere, a Fred. Olsen Cruise on board MS Braemar offers a true home from home.
As with all Fred Olsen’s ships, you will find a choice of restaurants and bars and you’ll be spoilt for choice with the delicious dishes on offer. Whether it’s a formal night or one of their special themed nights, you will be assured of a wonderful and intimate atmosphere as you enjoy your meal.
