Launch of the Corinth Canal & Greek Islands Cruise

 

This specially crafted cruise will show you a tapestry of authentic Greek highlights. You'll get closer to cultural and historical treasures and postcard-perfect scenes of gorgeous destinations, and experience an unforgettable navigation of the remarkable Corinth Canal. All this on one outstanding 25-night voyage. 

The Cretan charm of picturesque Agios Nikolaos, which boasts interesting museums, striking Byzantine-era churches and stunning views of the beautiful Merabello Bay, is sure to delight, while the remarkable ancient sites of Rhodes never fail to impress. Rhodes Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a treasure trove of historical highlights such as the Avenue of the Knights and imposing Palace of the Grand Masters; however a tour to Lindos is highly recommended to marvel at the famous ruins of Greek temples and the Crusader castle. At Syros, one of the lesser-known islands in the Cyclades, Braemar will dock just 200 metres from the centre of Ermoupoli, walking distance to the town’s cathedral, museums and galleries, restaurants and Ouzeries. The last of your four island calls is at Argostoli, Kefallonia, which, with its palm-lined promenade, stunning beaches and vibrant town, is the perfect place to make the most of the glorious Mediterranean sunshine. 

On the Greek mainland, an overnight stay in Patras affords time to explore one of Greece’s largest cities at your leisure, where highlights include the 6th century medieval castle and the striking Roman Odeum, which in fact pre-dates the Odeum in Athens. Katakolon, gateway to the world-renowned site of Olympia, offers tours to the home of the Olympic Games, though you could opt to visit the Mercouri vineyards and winery. The pièce de résistance is your memorable journey through the narrow Corinth Canal. Braemar is the longest ship to pass between the canal’s carefully carved cliffs; and you’ll be on board to enjoy every moment of this very special experience.

As if all that’s not enough, visits to attraction-packed destinations in Spain, Italy, Malta and Portugal are thrown in for good measure too. You’ll stop at Malaga to enjoy the sunshine of the Costa de Sol, and visit Valletta, one of the world’s most scenic cities. A call at Sicily and a scenic cruise by the Stromboli volcano makes for a rewarding taste of Italy; while vibrant Ibiza, the Roman city of Cartagena, Spain and Lisbon – Portugal’s capital will provide the perfect end to your holiday.
