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. Continue with a unique cruise to sun-bathed Greek islands enriched with oriental destinations. First stop is the resort of Kusadasi, on the Turkish coastline. You will then visit the island of Rhodes, a gem filled with medieval architecture before moving on to Heraklion in Crete, where you can get a taste of the exquisite local cuisine.
