7 Night Cruise "Idyllic Aegean"

April to October
The Celestyal Crystal cruise ship
per person in standard inside double cabin during medium season From 1311$

Welcome to a 7 Night cruise designed to offer you the elegant vacation you deserve! Start from Athens, a place combining the allure of antiquity in the form of historical monuments like the Acropolis with the comfort and luxury of a modern metropolis. It is time to embark on a unique cruise to sun-bathed Greek islands enriched with oriental destinations.

First stop is the city of Thessaloniki, which features an iconic waterfront, decorated by the imposing White Tower, the symbol of the city. From there, you will move on to the Turkish coastline where an optional excursion to the ancient city of Ephesus is in order. Home to Artemision, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, this tour will help you understand cultural and economic significance Ephesus bore in its heyday.

Time to visit Crete, one of the largest islands of the Mediterranean and one with beautiful juxtapositions in landscape. Optionally, you can decide to join an excursion to the Minoan Palace of Knossos, which has served as a beacon of culture for the region since the Neolithic era. Two volcanic islands will serve as your final stops in this unforgettable tour; Milos and Santorini. Unique beaches like Vlychada and Sarakiniko, glorious golden sunsets and wine from local vineyards that would make the most demanding of sommeliers rave with excitement! Sandwiched between the two, is Mykonos, where the contemporary and the traditional combine effortlessly to create a match made in heaven. Modern bars, luxurious restaurants and elegant galleries sprouting around secluded bays, tranquil windmills and gentle slopes.
