Fred Olsen Braemar Postcard

This card was given to me by an acquaintance who works in the ship. The ship is still in business so it was not that hard to gather information.

Fred Olsen Braemar Postcard

The Braemar, a cruise ship currently operating with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, was constructed in 1993 for Crown Cruise Line, operating under the name Crown Dynasty. Between 1993 and 1997, the vessel was also charted by Cunard Line, who would name the ship Cunard Crown Dynasty while under their flag.

In 1997, the vessel was transferred to Majesty Cruise Line, who renamed her Crown Majesty. This only lasted until the end of 1997, when the vessel was transferred again; this time to Norwegian Cruise Line, who renamed the vessel Norwegian Dynasty. The vessel returned to her original fleet and name in 1999, but was sold to Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines in 2001, where the vessel currently operates under the name Braemar.
