Technical incidents

  • During its service history, the Braemar cruise ship was operating under the names Cunard Crown Dynasty (1993-1997, constructed for the Crown Cruise Line, but operated under charter by Cunard Line), Crown Majesty (1997, bought by the Majesty Cruise Line), Norwegian Dynasty (1997-1999, owned and operated by the NCL Norwegian Cruise Line), Crown Dynasty (1999-2001).
  • The vessel’s sister by design was named Crown Jewel (1992). It was later renamed to MS Gemini, and currently chartered by the Celestyal Cruises line as Celestyal Nefeli.
  • 2009, MV Braemar (under the Fred Olsen’s ownership) was stretched by adding a prefabricated middle-section. The refit resulted in an increased gross tonnage and passenger capacity. During the ship’s stretching (done in Germany, at the Lloyd Werft’s shipyard) were built new cabins, lounges and a restaurant, along with the 2 swimming pools (plus a paddle pool) on Marquee Deck 8 (Sun Deck). The list of other stretched (elongated) cruise ships includes the fleetmates Balmoral, Black Watch and Boudicca, also the MSC Cruises ships ArmoniaLirica, Opera, the Phoenix Reisen’s Albatros and the Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of The Seas.
