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.

  • From 1 January 2021, new rules apply on travel within Europe.

    Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air.

    New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure:

    Passport
    British passport holders need to have at least six months left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old.
    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
    Visa
    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.
    Border Control
    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You may also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing.
    Healthcare Cover
    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad. Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will no longer be valid. It’s particularly important you have travel insurance with the right cover if you have a pre-existing medical condition. This is because the EHIC scheme covers pre-existing conditions, while many travel insurance policies do not. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.
    Mobile Roaming
    From 1 January 2021, the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway will end.
    Check with your phone operator to find out about any roaming charges you might get from 1 January 2021.
