With 929 guests on board, the Braemar cruise ship attempted what very few of its size has ever tried. And it accomplished it!

It navigated its entire body through the narrow Corinth Canal. That is, cruising through a waterway that separates the mainland of Greece from the Peloponnese. The canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Aegean Sea.

The width of the canal is around 25m, according to Travel and Leisure, while the ship's width sits at 22.5m. Now that's close!
