Sample the unique excitement of sailing Greece’s remarkable Corinth Canal, as record-breaking Braemar navigates this narrow waterway as part of an unforgettable Mediterranean discovery. 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 an experience rarely enjoyed on an ocean cruise ship, and make memories that last a lifetime.

Take in the fascinating history, culture and beauty of gorgeous Greek islands too. You can step back to the Byzantine era, taking in the Cretan charms, interesting museums and striking architecture of Agios Nikolaos; and trail the ancient sites of Rhodes. UNESCO-listed Rhodes Town is a living museum of monuments, such as the Avenue of the Knights and imposing Palace of the Grand Masters, while famous ruins, temples and the Crusader [ReadMoreDesk]Castle await in Lindos. At Syros and Kefallonia, Braemar’s size-advantage comes to the fore again, allowing you to dock close to heart of Ermoupoli and Argostoli, where pastel-hued villas and palm-lined promenades, Ouzeries and inviting beaches provide a taste of the Med at its most authentic.

Also presenting chances to take in sights and highlights on the mainland, including the ancient wonders of Athen such as the Acrolpolis and Parthenon; and the world renowned sites of Olympia and the Mercouri vineyards on tour from Katakolon, your time in Greece will captivate you from start to finish. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, you’ll sample a mix of Mediterranean cultures during visits to islands and cities in Spain, Italy, Malta and Portugal too, and marvel at the mighty Stromboli Volcano.

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.
