Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines returns to Corinth Canal

The 929-guest ship, Braemar, will return to the Corinth Canal (Greece) in September 2022 for a third time, offering even guests the opportunity to experience this record-breaking sailing.

Braemar made history in October 2019 by becoming the largest ship – at just under 186 metres long – to sail the 6.4-kilometre canal, which is only 24 metres wide at its narrowest point.

“The rock faces were so close that guests could – quite literally – almost touch them,” says Jackie Martin, marketing and sales director. “Our World Record is something of which we, as a company, feel immensely proud and is a huge milestone in our history, generating media interest worldwide.”

More information about the cruises, which leave from Southampton, can be found online.
