Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has confirmed that its 929-guest ship, Braemar, will be returning to the Corinth Canal in September 2022 for a third time, offering even more guests the opportunity to experience this record-breaking sailing.
Fred Olsen’s 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 cruise line has unveiled its new Corinth Canal sailing in Autumn 2022 as the first preview itinerary from its forthcoming 2021/22 programme.
Commenting, Jackie Martin, Marketing and Sales Director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “In October, Braemar made history by becoming the largest ship ever to sail the Corinth Canal, which is just 24-metres wide at its narrowest point. The rock faces were so close that guests could – quite literally – almost touch them.
“We wanted as many of our guests as possible to enjoy this phenomenal experience, so we are thrilled to be doing it all again in 2022.”
