Legendary Aegean - 4 Night

Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean may be the land of legends, but our legendary cruise is no myth. Packing in the serene beauty of the Greek islands and book-ended by two enthralling cities, your journey will take you to Kos, deep into the slopes of Mt Dikeos for a serene countryside island walk, and through the medieval villages of the ‘majestic island’ Chios, before roaming
the iconic windmills of Mykonos.

Cruise itinerary

At-a-Glance Itinerary
Day 1
Depart 18:00

Istanbul

Soak up the city in the Eastern Mediterranean
that never sleeps, and never has.
Before you join us onboard, explore
Istanbul’s rich mix of bustling markets, vibrant back streets and countless landmarks. Everywhere you turn, spice aromas and eclectic architecture will
pique your interest. When you join us, we embark on a voyage of discovery, and you get your first taste of a Celestyal dining experience.

Day 2
Depart 20:00

Chios

With a rich history
stretching back to ancient times, Chios’ mysteries and beauty capture hearts and minds as a matter of course. This ancient island is
rumoured to be the birthplace of the legendary ancient poet Homer, with the Daskalopetra, or Teacher’s Stone,
marking the spot where he taught his students and narrated his poems.
Explore Chios on foot and you’ll weave your way from the black stone beach of Mavros Gialos and its volcanic rocks to the abandoned village of Anavatos. Seeking shelter from the
marauding Ottoman troops, the local villagers fled to the nearby Nea Mono Monastery but were discovered. Today, the abandoned hillside village stands
empty as testament to their memory.

Day 3
Depart 18:00

Kos

Rugged white cliffs soar towards the sky, crystal beaches magically appear and lush green landscapes stretch as far as the eye can see – Kos island is a beauty to behold. Once you step foot on its shores, you’ll discover a bounty of ancient monuments, pristine beaches and rustic mountain villages.

Kos town’s picturesque harbour and magical atmosphere will have you hooked from the very beginning. You’ll stumble upon countless ancient relics that now blend into modern life and a rich picking of tavernas, monuments and museums. Seek out the medieval Knight’s Castle for a tranquil explore of the island’s past.

Day 4
Depart 20:00

Mykonos

The island, according to Greek mythology, was formed by the bodies of giants slain by Hercules. The most recognisable site on Mykonos is the row of immaculate picture postcard white windmills overlooking the water. Every visitor takes that picture. The Old Town has many delightful cafes and tavernas along its winding alleys and time will pass very quickly in these lovely, relaxing surroundings.

Day 5
Arrive 07:00

Athens

We return to the
capital in the
morning after an exciting journey of discovery.

While your cruise may be drawing to an end, the tantalising city of Athens still lies ahead. Delve deep into the city’s sidestreets, bursting with life and culture. Or, clamber up high to the Acropolis for a stunning view of this thriving, cosmopolitan city. As the sun sets, take in the Athens skyline by night and wonder at the dancing Aegean. There’s no better place to end your cruise than here.
