The cruise at a glance

The Olsen Way Highlights

Another chance to experience an unmissable sailing of the ultra-narrow Corinth Canal, only possible due to Braemar's smaller size. Our journey planners have carefully selected destinations that showcase Ancient Greek history, with opportunities to see everything from Olympia, the site of the original Olympic Games, to the Minoan Palace of Knossos. You'll also visit the Balkans where historically significant destinations await your discovery, including off-the-beaten-track places such as the fortified town of Kotor – reached by cruising the scenic, fjord-like Bay of Kotor – and Durrës, home to historic architecture including a Roman amphitheatre and Zog’s Villa of Durrës. In Croatia, you can uncover the influences of Emperor Diocletian in the ruins of his 4th-century palace in Split, before learning how the Walls of Dubrovnik have protected the city for hundreds of years.
