Editor’s note: “Image of the Day” is a new feature that we have recently launched. We work in an amazing industry. Let’s celebrate its beauty together by sharing the incredible imagery taken by our colleagues of what we do. Have a photo/video to share? Please send it to email@example.com along with the name of the photographer who took it (if available) so that we can give them the credit that they are due.
We call this one “Tight Squeeze”. It was shared by Fred Olsen Cruise Line. If they want to reach out to us with the name of the person who captured it we would be grateful so we that can recognize and credit their work.
Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ guests experienced a breath-taking transit of the 6.4-kilometre-long Corinth Canal in Greece on 9th October 2019, as 24,344-gross-tonnes, 195.82-metre-long, 22.52-meter-wide Braemar broke the existing record to become the largest ship ever to traverse this famous feat of engineering. The Canal is only 24 metres at its narrowest point.
The Corinth Canal is a waterway that separates the Greek mainland from the Peloponnese, turning it into an island. It is an important navigational route, which once allowed ships to enter the Aegean Sea. While the Canal is steeped in over two millennia of history, the structure that we now know was completed and used for the first time on 28th October 1893.
