CUBA TO THE CORINTH CANAL

Making for an incredible adventure, this cruise combines the sights and highlights of the Caribbean, the Balkans and gorgeous Greek islands, as well as unforgettable ocean and scenic cruising experiences. You’ll meet Braemar in Cuba and have two days in Havana to see its famous sites, sip ‘proper’ daiquiri and mojito, or even enjoy an evening at the Tropicana, and visit colourful Bermuda, before enjoying a magical Transatlantic crossing with a stop at the verdant Azores en route. Then, after stopping in Spain to take in the delights of Andalusia, you’re in for a memorable Balkan discovery. Capture the beauty and history UNESCO-listed Dubrovnik and Split, amongst their ancient ruins and fortifications, and see the sights of Kotor, including Venetian Works of Defence, built between the 15th and 17th centuries. Enjoy rare visits to the Albanian city of Durres, a city awash with the contrasting architectural wonders of various eras, and ancient Crotone, which has stood on Italy’s Calabrese coast since 4th century BC, too. Plus, delight in the scenic splendour of the Strait of Messina and fjord-like Bay of Kotor.

In Greece, you’ll get to feel a unique sense of excitement while smaller-sized Braemar navigates the Corinth Canal, sailing serenely between carefully carved, pinching cliffs to provide dramatic views rarely seen from an ocean cruise ship. There are visits to Greek islands too; your smaller ship docks centrally in almost every destination, closer to their highlights. Step back to the Byzantine era, taking in the Cretan delights and striking architecture of Agios Nikolaos; and trail the ancient sites of Rhodes, from Rhodes Town’s Palace of the Grand Masters and Avenue of the Knights to Lindos’ ruins. In Syros and Kefallonia, Ermoupoli and Argostoli exude Mediterranean charm, with pastel-hued villas and palm-lined promenades, Ouzeries and glorious beaches. Meanwhile, there are incredible attractions to uncover on the mainland; Katakolon and Pireaus are gateways to the iconic landmarks of Olympia and Athens.
