New Corinth Canal Cruise 2022 (5 Reasons To Book)

New Corinth Canal Cruise 2022 (5 Reasons To Book)

It’s here! The 2022 Corinth Canal sailing onboard the beautiful, sleek and slender MS Braemar.  Let Fred. Olsen’s Captain and crew guide you through this rarely traversed waterway. 

Recently, Braemar became the largest ship to navigate the canal. At a mere 25 metres at its narrowest point, the 22.52 metre wide ship seemed to have no problem gliding through the canal thanks to the very skilled and steady-nerved Captain Jozo Glavic. No wonder fascinated guests reported feeling as though they could touch the sides!

Fancy taking an amazing 25-night Corinth Canal and Greek Islands cruise in September 2022? Don’t delay, I predict this will be another popular cruise. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider…

1. Immersive

This is so much more than a Corinth Canal cruise! Visit destinations rich in culture and immerse yourself in Greek, Roman and Byzantine history. Highlights include an overnight in Patras with its medieval castle and Roman Odeum and colourful ports such as Ermoupoli which is relatively undiscovered. Let's not forget the fantastic offering of scenic cruising incorporated too!

2. Unique

The opportunity to experience something this amazing doesn’t come up very often. Be part of something rare and get closer to stunning destinations on your friendly home-from-home.

3. Priceless

Making unique memories and friends for life is priceless but how much does this 25-night adventure cost? Interestingly, the lowest available price is currently £300pp* cheaper than 2021's departure but for how long?
