Description

Sail aboard Fred Olsen’s Braemar on this centenary cruise to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War. Ports of call allow visits to a number of historic battlefields, many of which played pivotal roles in the Great War, and visit their thought-provoking memorials and museums. The first is Dunkirk; known for its role in the Second World War it is also located close to the border with Belgium allowing visits to the Great War battlefields and Ypres, where the Menin Gate Memorial and Flanders Fields Museum can be seen. From Ghent, you can visit Brussels for the annual Remembrance Sunday commemoration, before continuing to Antwerp – close to the historic city of Liège, the place of the first battle of the war. Our final stop is Boulogne-sur-Mer, the closest port to the Somme and the moving Thiepval Memorial of the Missing.
