Excitement and awe will grasp you as record-breaking Braemar navigates Greece’s remarkable Corinth Canal on this unforgettable Mediterranean voyage.[ReadMoreMob] Sailing serenely between the canal’s carefully carved cliffs, which pinch to a gap of just 24 metres between them at their narrowest point, you’ll enjoy a unique experience rarely undertaken on an ocean cruise ship, making memories that will last a lifetime.

Capture the rich history, culture and beauty of Greek islands too; your smaller ship docks centrally in almost every destination, closer to their highlights. Step back to the Byzantine era, taking in the Cretan delights and striking architecture of Agios Nikolaos; and trail the ancient sites of Rhodes, from Rhodes Town’s imposing Palace of the Grand Masters and Avenue of the Knights to Lindos’ ruins. In sleepy Syros and gorgeous Kefallonia, Ermoupoli and Argostoli exude Mediterranean charm, with pastel-hued villas and palm-lined promenades, Ouzeries and glorious beaches. Meanwhile, there are incredible attractions to uncover on the mainland; Katakolon and Pireaus are gateways to the iconic landmarks of Olympia and Athens.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
