Once the Crown Dynasty, Braemar is more modern in design and layout than her older fleet mates, with a light-filled atrium and a swimming pool surrounded by sunning space on the top deck. Braemar primarily sails one- to two-week itineraries and shorter minicruises for which she is well-suited. Public rooms on the Lounge Deck are surrounded by a wraparound promenade lined with cushioned deck chairs. Braemar's off-center atrium opens up to public rooms on two successive decks above the Lounge Deck.
Extensively refurbished in 2008, Braemar was cut in half and a 102-foot midsection was inserted, which added an observatory lounge, a pub, a restaurant, a second swimming pool with expanded deck space, and increased the number of cabins, At the heart of the ship, the open-concept Braemar Room is adjacent to the Library, Card Room, Morning Light Pub, and the boutique.
