TRIP DESCRIPTION


Greece, the name conjures images of magnificent ancient ruins, crystal blue seawater with sandy beaches, white stucco building with colorful rooftops perched on steep cliffs, and of course delightful foods. Now you can turn those images into reality by joining us on this once in a lifetime trip to the Greek islands whether you’re looking to relax on picturesque islands with unspoiled sandy beaches or stimulate your senses in places that have marked ancient history. Come and be serenaded by the romance of the Aegean Sea and visit the most enchanting Greek island destinations dotted around the Aegean Sea, where culture, history, pristine beaches, and fishing villages suspended in time all await.

Set foot on some of the most magnificent ancient ruins in the world when we visit Athens, Greece as part of your adventure. Our journey spans 2 countries and starts in the magnificent ancient city of Athens, then we embark on a 7 night cruise starting in Turkey (Kusadasi) then visit some of Greece’s most popular islands (Mykonos, Santorini, Ephesus, Rhodes, Santorini, Milos, and Olympia), and finally disembark back in Athens for another half day of sightseeing. There’s also the option of extending your journey for another 2 nights in Athens to explore a city that you’ve read about in history books.

So, what are you waiting for??? Join me on my “Big Fat Greek adventure” and sign up today. Get your spouse, partner, significant other, friend, sibling or even a parent and sign up together to get the cabin class you want for this Bucket List trip. Cabin types are limited and leaving it to chance to get a cabin-mate who wants your exact choice of cabin price category is risky so find a partner ahead of time then sign up as cabin mates. Opa!!

Day 6 - September 1, 2020 - Heraklion, Greece


Morning arrival to the island of Crete, rich with history and culture. Awake to the island’s bustling capital, Heraklion. The busy capital of Crete is a former Venetian harbor with a history dating back even further, to the time of the Minoans. Visit Knossos, once home to Europe’s oldest civilization and the setting of the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur and delve further into the art and creativity of the Minoans at the city’s extraordinary Archaeological Museum. You can visit one of the island’s most picturesque places: the Lion’s Square. Stop in a local cafe where you can savor a “bougatsa”, a local Cretan pastry.
The ancient city of Knossos, with constant habitation from the Neolithic era until the 5th century A.D. and is beyond doubt the land that “gave birth” to the first civilization of Europe. The first excavations were begun in 1878 by the Heraklian Minos Kalokairinos. A bit later (1900-1913 & 1922-1930) the excavations by the British Sir Arthur Evans were to complete the scientific research, bringing to light the Minoan palace in its entirety, which was, according to tradition, the residence of the wise King Minos. The palace of Knossos spreads around the large Central Court. You will reach the awe inspiring Throne Room, the fresco of the “Prince of the Lilies”, the imposing Grand Staircase, and the Queen’s Megaron in the east. 
We will stop in Heraklion on the way back to the ship. Heraklion was founded in 824 and is an important homeland of many contributors to Literature and Art, some examples of which are the Nobel winning poet Odysseas Elytis, the Renaissance painter Domenikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco) and the writer Nikos Kazantzakis.  Heraklion is also endowed with some wonderful edifices: the “Koules” fortress, the award winning Venetian structure of the Loggia, the Morosini Fountain, the Basilica of Saint Mark, and the Church of Agios Titos. Starting the walk from Liberty square of Heraklion, guests will pass by the shopping streets of Dedalou and 25th August and see the aforementioned sights along the way.
Return to the ship in the evening. Ship will sail at night for the next destination. (B,L,D)


Day 7 - September 2, 2020 - Santorini, Greece


Early arrival in Santorini. Sprinkled like sugar over sheer black volcanic cliffs, Santorini’s whitewashed capital, Fira, is a sight to behold. Wander the narrow streets or venture along the clifftop to pretty Oia for that iconic shot of the blue domed church. The ship will spend the evening in port, so take a ringside seat in a cliff top bar to watch the fiery sunset. 
After breakfast the next day is your included excursion to Santorini’s Oia Village. First we head up to Megalochori village, one of the most authentic and unspoiled villages of the island with its distinctive architecture and character.  We will continue to the east passing by small traditional villages of Kamari, Monolithos, Fira, Firostefani and Imerovigli, with delicate architecture and beauties, to eventually arrive at the settlement of Oia. During the entire route, to the west is lace-like caldera, the little islands of Thirasia, Palea and Nea Kameni and a magnificent panoramic view. In Oia, we will have plenty of time to stroll through the marble-paved alleys, to gaze at cute shops, to take pictures, to become acquainted with the characteristic buildings carved into the rocks, and the unusual captains’ manors.  The settlement Ammoudi is at the foot of the caldera.  After your curiosity has been sated of the area which is characterized as being of “exceptional natural beauty”, you will return to the ship.  Afternoon at leisure in Santorini. 
Return to the ship. Dinner and overnight sailing to the next destination. (B,L,D)


Day 8 - September 3, 2020 - Santorini - Milos - Mykonos, Greece


This morning, arrival in the island of Milos. Volcanic Milos shows off classic Cycladic beauty: the pretty whitewashed capital Plaka spilling over a hilltop, the coastline fringed with wind-and sea-sculpted rock formations, soft sandy beaches and aquamarine coves. Bask on the flat rocks of stunning Sarakiniko Beach or explore 2,000-year-old catacombs. You can visit at leisure or select one of the optional shore excursions.  We will sail early afternoon to Mykonos and arrive in the evening. A cosmopolitan paradise that attracts more than its fair share of beautiful people, Mykonos Town is the archetypal image of the Cyclades, with immaculate whitewashed houses, windmills and winding alleys. Explore the sandy beaches, wander through the ancient temples on neighboring Delos and venture out on your overnight stay to enjoy the legendary nightlife. 
Dinner and overnight aboard the ship in Mykonos (B,L,D)

OPTIONAL TOURS (purchase onboard during cruise)

 

 Delos-Sacred island & Apollo Sanctuary (To be booked onboard the Cruise)

 

You will be transported by boat to the ancient harbor of Delos where you will travel back in time. In front of the pier is the “Agora of Hermaists” or “Competialists” with altars and shrines where the ancient road crossed the two porticoes. Behind the south portico used to be the “Agora of Delians”. Next follows the “Oikos (House) of Naxians”, dated to the 7th century B.C. Further north you will admire the three “Temples of Apollo”, the oldest of which was already in use by the 6th century. The southernmost temple is known as the “Temple of the Delians”. At the northern side of the temples you will stand in front of the so-called “treasures”. Here, every city of antiquity exhibited its offerings. A monument that will draw your attention is the “Sanctuary of the Bulls”. You will find yourself at the “Agora of Theophrastos”, and will pass by the “Temple of the Twelve Gods” to eventually reach the “Granite Monument”. Next follows the “Avenue of the Lions”, which was encircled by full-sized marble lions. The large building complex that rises in front of you is the “Establishment of the Poseidoniasts of Beirut” and it was built by ship owners and merchants from Beirut. The excursion comes to an end at Chora with free time for strolling through the alleys and the shops. Included: Guide, Boat transfer, Entrance Fees


 Mykonian Dinner (To be booked onboard the Cruise)

 

This delightful excursion takes you on foot and up close to the wonders of Mykonos Town, one of the world’s best-loved destinations. We’ll start with a stroll along its narrow-cobbled streets, past chic boutiques and white-washed churches and elegant cafes, until we arrive at Kastro, home of the famous Paraportiani Church. Next to Paraportiani is the Folklore Museum*, which is found in an old two-story captain’s house. We will visit the museum, which houses interesting costumes, furniture and household items typically found in the island’s homes in the late 19th and early 20th centuries alongside jewelry and textiles. The Folklore Museum is an in-depth tour of Mykonian life as it was more than 100 years ago. While in Kastro, we will also visit the smaller chapels of Paraportiani. 
We walk from Kastro to Alefkhandra and Windmills. Alefkhandra, also known as “Little Venice,” is a charming corner of Mykonos Town. The houses here, the homes of wealthy merchants and sea captains, were built on the sea in the 18th century, and their wooden balconies evoke the homes along the canals of Venice. From here we will walk to the windmills for a magnificent sunset and one of the best spots to take photos on this splendid island. 
Your stroll through the picturesque little streets of Chora will bring you to a local tavern, where you are welcome to savor the taste, aromas and essence of genuine Greek spirit through Greek favorite flavors, drinks, music and dances.

 Cycladic tastes, food on foot (To be booked onboard the Cruise)

 

Savor the delights of Mykonos with a foodie tour around the island capital. You’ll see the city’s highlights and neighborhoods all while sampling the best food and drink that Mykonos Town has to offer. We’ll start it all with a caffeine kick at Café Barco where you’ll be served a traditional coffee and sweet treat, after which we’ll stroll past the famous windmills, through the narrow, cobbled lanes of Little Venice and the Three Mills to the one and only Paraportiani Church. Next, try some Greek peppers and olives washed down with some local raki before heading to Gioras bakery to eat their famous cheese and onion pie. We continue our food odyssey at Popolo where you’ll sample local bruschetta, and then it’s onto the pretty garden of Cine Manto to taste fresh Greek salad, beer and Mykonian sausage. And last but not least, you’ll have some fig cheesecake served with olive marmalade waiting for you at Il Forno di Gerasimo.


 Nostalgic Milos Cruise- Land and Sea (To be booked onboard the Cruise)

 

A short drive from the harbor takes us to famous Sarakiniko beach and its landmark white rocks. Naturally sculpted by volcanic eruptions, the sea and strong Aegean winds, it’s the ideal backdrop for your snapshots. No wonder why it is one of the favorite photography subjects in the Cyclades. We’ll walk down to the inlet in quest of intriguing photo opportunities and for swimming of course. You’ll feel as if you’ve landed on the moon!

The picturesque village of Plaka, at the foot of the venetian castle, comes next. We’ll stroll through its cobblestone alleys, pass by traditional houses and blooming bougainvilleas. We have time to savor karpouzopita and koufeto, the local sweet delicacies at pastry shops, or head to the marble courtyard of Korfiatissa church for the best panoramic views – it’s right next to the Folklore Museum, which we can also visit. 

Last but not least, is our tour to Kleftiko. We drive by coach to Kipos, passing by Papikinos beach and the Salt fields. Aboard the “Delfinia” boat, we start our journey towards Kleftiko, once a pirate lair that has become an absolute must for any traveler. Its greyish rocks come out of the turquoise sea and you have the chance to swim through the sea caves. On the way to Kleftiko, the boat will make a shorter swimming stop at Gerondas beach.


 Cruise to Santorin’s Island and Volcanoes (To be booked onboard the Cruise)

 

The little islands of Palea and Nea Kameni are of particular geological interest, since underneath them slumbers an active volcano. From the cruise ship, you will be transported easily within a few minutes by small boat to Nea Kameni which resembles a moon landscape! You will walk up to the verge of the crater, the heart of the volcano, a unique geological phenomenon that will overwhelm you with awe. In Nea Kameni, nowadays there is gas-steam activity at the top of the crater, while its beaches are embraced by thermal springs.
The next stop of this special excursion, is Palea (or Palia) Kameni with its therapeutic warm waters. Here you will have a chance to swim in the hot springs. The sea temperature here is 5°C higher than in the rest of the locations and the green-yellow water contains sulphur. After the trip to the volcano, you will have the chance to walk, take keepsake photos, to touch the magic and energy of Fira. Finishing your trip in the main town of Santorini, you will descend by funicular (the ticket is included in the fee of this excursion) to the Old Port to reach the cruise ship by small boat.


  Akrotiri village excavations (To be booked onboard the Cruise)  

 

The people who lived on prehistoric Santorini called the island “Strongyle” (round). In 1650 BC the massive Thira volcano erupted, sinking the center of Strongyle and leaving behind an incredible caldera. You will marvel at its towering cliffs as slender boats carry you to the port of Athinios, where our air conditioned bus awaits to take you to Santorini’s most significant archeological site, the village of Akrotiri. 

From Athinios we will drive south. We will stop at the ruins of the island’s famous windmill for photos and to enjoy the incredible panoramic view. We leave the windmill for Akrotiri, where you’ll have a chance to explore this ancient village.  Its amazing ruins will take you back in time. These advanced people built two- and three-storey homes and grew crops, and you will marvel at the remnants of the houses, shops and workshops that surrounded the village square thousands of years ago. Akrotiri had been a bustling town, but its inhabitants abandoned it before the Thira volcano eruption, a mystery archeologists and historians are still trying to solve. The ash from the volcano buried the city, preserving many of its structures and some of its incredible frescoes. Could Akrotiri be the lost city of Atlantis? We’ll let you decide. 

After Akrotiri we’ll drive to Fira, the capital of Santorini and its largest town, where we’ll visit the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, also known as the Church of Ypapantis, famed for its elegant construction and its beautiful frescoes, which were painted by Santorini artist Christoforos Assimis. After our visit to the cathedral, you can linger in Fira to shop and enjoy a coffee or a snack, or you can take the Santorini Cable Car, the teleferik, to the port below with an incredible descent of more than 200 meters toward the deep blue waters of the caldera. Our boats will be ready, once you disembark from the teleferik, to bring you back to the ship.
