Corinth Canal – watch a massive cruise ship squeeze through Greece’s infamous 21.4 meters wide canal

The Corinth Canal is 6.4 kilometers (4 mi) long with a width of just 21.4 meters (70 ft) at sea level and 21.3 meters (70 ft) at the bottom, making it impassable for most modern ships.

Currently, it is mainly a tourist attraction with little economic significance. This video shows a cruise ship navigating a narrow channel, its passengers almost able to touch the edge of the narrow channel, which is 24 meters wide at its narrowest point.

MS Braemar, 22.52 meters long and 195.82 meters of Olsen Cruise Lines, became the longest ship to cross the Corinth Canal.

The cruise ship carries almost 929 passengers on a 25-day cruise to places such as Rhodes, Kefalonia and ports in Spain and Italy. One of the landmarks it crosses is the Corinth Canal, a waterway that separates mainland Greece from the Peloponnese and connects the Gulf of Corinth to the Aegean Sea.
