Excitement and awe will grasp you as record-breaking Braemar navigates Greece’s remarkable Corinth Canal on this unforgettable Mediterranean voyage. 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.[ReadMore]

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; tour from Katakolon to Olympia to explore the birthplace of the Olympic Games, or to the Mercouri Vineyards; and take time to bathe in the Mediterranean sunshine, relaxing on your pick of Kefalonia’s beautiful beaches. The piece de resistance is a call at Pireaus, gateway to Athens and its iconic ancient sites such as the Acropolis and the mighty Parthenon.

Braemar is the shortest of Fred. Olsen's four smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ships, with dimensions perfect for cruising picturesque, size-restricted rivers and docking in the heart of fascinating towns and cities.

Like the rest of the fleet, Braemar assumes the welcoming feel and intimacy of a country house hotel, and a sense of timeless style and elegance flows through the ship's comfortable bars and lounges, restaurants and spacious accommodation for up to 929 guests.
