Discover another side of Greece on this magical 8-day adventure cruise.
Discover a side of Greece riddled with myth and magic as you cruise through the Aegean – soaking in sights, sounds and tastes of the islands off the Greek Peninsula. With sunny beaches, hidden villages and ancient archaeological sites, this adventure offers a view into the stylish island lifestyles of places such as Sifnos, Santorini, Mykonos and more. Visit some small hill villages, take a walk along hidden walking trails and grab a bite of the delicious local salted sun-cured pork, sharp cheeses and mouth-watering pastas as you take in a new view of this legendary location. Your ship, the old-world M/S Galileo, is a great base for soaking up postcard-perfect views of the Aegean – definitely keep a camera handy to capitalise on some unforgettable photo opportunities.
A sunset repast underneath the magnificent temple of Poseidon, surrounded on three sides by the sparkling blue Aegean Sea, is an evening meal you won't forget!
A trip to Greece isn't complete without copious leisure time, and there are few better places to taste the Greek island life than Mykonos. Enjoy two days and nights soaking it up in this little paradise
Get away from the tourist trail by visiting islands such as Amorgos, with its unusual rock hewn monestary, and Sifnos, known for its incredible cuisine
Explore with local guides the ancient sites of Akrotiri and Delos, two of the important archaeological sites in Greece
Escape to the hills of Paros, where the impossibly charming towns of Lefke, Marpissa and Naoussa await
This is a small ship adventure cruise, which means you’ll be sailing on a yacht with 30–50 other people. The boat is spacious and comfortable, but it focuses more on the destination than on-board activities. Instead of a pool, we have the sea itself. Instead of a casino, we’ve got board games and a good book. There’s also no formal dress code to worry about. Wi-Fi is available for a small charge.
Our ship moves under engine power, rather than sailing, so all cabins will experience light engine noise when the ship is moving (and occasionally when we drop anchor). It’s probably worth packing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper.
Onshore activities and excursions will involve a bit of walking. You’ll be visiting ancient sites and historical places, and at times you may have to cross cobbled streets and uneven ground, sometimes in hot conditions. If you have any concerns, please speak to your group leader before taking part.
If you’re concerned about seasickness, there are seasickness tablets on-board. The ship will experience some roll and pitch in choppy conditions, however all of our ships come equipped with stabilisers to minimise movement. Most of our departures run in peak season, when the seas are calmer. Your crew will do all they can to minimise any discomfort.
There are no lifts (elevators) on-board our ships, so you’ll have to navigate a few steep flights of stairs. Handrails are always available.
