    Braemar cruising the Corinth canal, Greece

    CORINTH CANAL

    Braemar made history when she became the largest ship to sail through the canal in 2019, and we cannot wait for our new Corinth Canal & Ancient Greece cruise in April 2022 when we get to do it all again – all thanks to her smaller size and unusual hull shape.

    What’s more, you’ll also have the chance to explore ancient wonders in Greece, as well as attraction-packed calls to Spain, Italy, Malta and Portugal too.

    Cruising the Corinth Canal on Braemar is one of our most unforgettable experiences, and one which is made possible by her smaller size.
