The Fred Olsen cruise line bought Crown Dynasty in 2001 to be operated under the name Braemar. This ship then joined Fred Olsen’s other two cruise ships, the 11,209 ton Black Prince and the 28,492 ton Black Watch.

Braemar was the second of two sister ships originally built for the Crown Cruise Line as their Crown Majesty. The Norwegian Cruise Line acquired Crown Majesty in 1997 to be operated under the name Norwegian Dynasty. She was later sold to the Comodore cruise line to be operated under the name Crown Dynasty. The Comodore cruise line folded in late 2000, this leading to Crown Dynasty becoming Fred Olsen’s Braemar in April 2001.

Braemar had 7 passenger decks, 1 pool, 5 bars, casino, fitness center, 410-seat showroom, 269 outside cabins of which 10 have balconies, 131 inside cabins, can carry 730 passengers and a crew of 320.

Braemar was lengthened in 2008 at the Blohm + Voss shipyard in Germany by 102 feet. This re-work added another 84 cabins giving her a standard occupancy of 929 passengers.

Braemar's Itinerary is mainly from Dover/England - Scandinavia & Baltic Sea, Mediterranean, Iberia & Canary Islands. Braemar is also operated on fly/cruises throughout the Caribbean. Reviews.

Star Cruises bought her sister ship Crown Jewel in 1999 to be operated in the Far East under the name Superstar Gemini. This ship was sold to the Spanish operator, Quail Cruises, in 2009 to be operated under the name Gemini for Mediterranean cruises out of Valencia, Venice & Athens.
