April to October
per person in standard inside double cabin during low season From1259$

A very aptly named cruise, this 7 day journey includes a carefully selected group of destinations to satisfy the most eclectic of tastes. Heave up anchors in Athens to visit Istanbul, the jewel of the orient, and take an excursion to the grand bazaar. Next stop is Canakkale, another coastal town in Turkey and your last in the country before returning to Greece and the mainland port of Volos. You then travel to south Aegean and you can have a taste of the traditional Cretan lifestyle in Heraklion. Take advantage of the chance to see the palace of Knossos, a landmark of the Minoan civilization. Soak up the view of the caldera in Santorini before moving on to the cosmopolitan Mykonos, where you can experience a whole new level of luxury.
