Making a historic record, cruise ship ‘Braemar’ became the longest ever vessel to transit through the narrow Corinth Canal, Greece.

The 74 foot-wide (22.5 meters) ship managed to squeeze through the rocky walls of the canal which measures 79 feet (24 meters) at its narrowest point making it the longest boat to make the journey, cruise company Fred. Olsen said.

USA Today quoted Clare Ward, the cruise line’s product and customer service director saying, “This is such an exciting sailing and tremendous milestone in Olsen’s 171-year history, and we are thrilled to have been able to share it with our guests.”

He added, “At Fred. Olsen, we strive to create memories that last a lifetime, and with guests onboard Braemar able to get so close to the edges of the Corinth canal that they could almost touch the sides, we know that this will be a holiday that they will never forget.”

Sharing the pictures of the historic moment on Twitter, the company wrote, “And breathe in everyone! Braemar cruising through the Corinth Canal this morning was a bit of a tight squeeze”

The cruise company also shared the breath-taking video on YouTube, which has been viewed over eight million times.

According to Metro News, the 24k tone Braemar cruise liner was carrying over 1200 passengers and crew members. People were also able to touch the sides of the canal in the ship’s ‘rather tight squeeze’ through Corinth.

The Bahamian-flagged Braemar departed from Southampton, England on Sept. 27, and is 18 days into a 25-night cruise through the Greek islands, Spain and Portugal.
