Aegean Sea Shore Excursions


Cruising this amazing area of the world has an added bonus: the very interesting ports of call. Aegean cruises can be categorized as destination cruises as the main highlight are actually the ports of call. On all the islands there are excursions organized by the ship, in which you can participate at an extra cost.
The shore excursions are a highlight of the cruise and you should examine what options are available to you and choose the ones that you find interesting.


On each of the cruises, and within the quoted rate, a set of shore excursions is included. These excursions offered as "included" and vary per itinerary. Details are listed within each cruise description/quotation.

Mobile Phones usage on the Greek Island Cruise


Aegean Sea cruises have an extra good thing going for them…. Mobile phone reception is available during most of the cruise. All the Greek islands have excellent mobile phone coverage this means that on the greater part of the cruise you will have good signal. The only times when you will not be able to use the phone is on long crossings, even though these are few and mostly done at night.

Internet on the Cruise ship


You can browse the internet on the ship but this is quite expensive and done at a designated area of the ship that has computers with access, or where the WIFI of the vessel has coverage.
A good “tip” to have in mind is that in Greece most cafes offer free Wi-Fi to all their customers. So if you want to use Wi-Fi, and as the ship is in port for many hours, it is a good option to enjoy some time at a local café and use the free Wi-Fi.

Smoking on the Cruise ship


Smoking is not allowed in any of the indoor areas of the cruise ship.
