Your idyllic Aegean escape begins in the majestic city of Athens.

Explore the city and soak up the atmosphere by the harbour’s edge as you wait to embark for your exciting adventure.
As you’re making memories on your Greek cruise, we’re pulling into Heraklion. Don’t be fooled by the imposing 16th-century walls of Koules Fortress – Heraklion is a charming Aegean paradise. The next leg of your cruise awaits – but not before you’ve taken in the seafront and explored the rolling Cretan countryside. Get to know about Europe’s first civilisation in the Knossos museum before heading on for the next leg of your journey.
The spectacular sweeping scenery of Santorini will simply take your breath away. The romantic island is dotted with traditional whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches that are clustered over the striking cliffs. It is instantly recognizable as one of the world’s most photographed picture-postcard landscapes. The charming villages provide a beguiling oasis of tranquility and beauty that will exceed all your expectations.
The dynamic beach resort of Kusadasi welcomes you with its warm and friendly ambience. From here you will be whisked away for a guided tour round ancient Ephesus, one of the highlights of this iconic Aegean cruise. Before rebounding the ship, take time to enjoy the scenic seafront promenade and the town’s impressive Grand Bazaar.
The enchanting capital city of Istanbul is split between the continents of Europe and Asia, and offers a truly unique experience. The city’s skyline is embellished with the silhouetted minarets of the lavish Byzantine and imperial mosques that line the Bosphorus Strait. Our complimentary cruise along the Bosphorus or visit to the spice market to experience the sights, smells and sounds of this enigmatic city.
A day at sea gives you the opportunity to explore the ship’s array of amenities, take full advantage of the onboard activities and indulge in our chef’s exquisite cuisine. Kick back and soak up the sun as we treat you to complimentary drinks from the bar. Alternatively, why not participate in handicrafts, language lessons, traditional dancing, games or exercise. There’s plenty to do.
The attractive and picturesque coastal port city of Volos is associated with many captivating tales of Greek mythology. It’s the mythical home of Jason and the Argonauts, and the birthplace of the Centaur. The island’s most popular attraction, however, are the six spectacular monasteries that are perched high on the magnificent vertical rock formations collectively known as Meteora. You have to see it to believe it.
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.
