Record-Breaking Corinth Canal & Greek Islands Cruise on Braemar

Fred. Olsen Cruises Lines have a record-breaking cruise on Braemar, departing from Southampton on Friday 27th September 2019. Voyage M1925 will last for 25 nights, and will cruise through the Mediterranean and Greek Islands, during which she will become the largest ship ever to sail through the impressive Corinth Canal, which links the Gulf of Corinth and the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. This 4 mile-long man-made canal has sheer walls of rock on both sides, and is just 81 feet wide at its narrowest point, which makes it impossible for most cruise ships to navigate it.

Look at the full itinerary and map below, then call GoCruise with Ian on 01455821770 or 08002922850 to book your cabin on this amazing record-breaking cruise. Past passengers can get a 5% discount with their Oceans Club membership, by booking at least 12 months in advance (bronze level), 9 months (silver), 6 months (gold), 3 months (platinum) and at any time (diamond elite). Demand is going to be very strong, and I feel that the ship may well be sold out more than 12 months in advance of departure.
