Day 1
Embarkation! Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Welcome on board!
After embarkation this afternoon, on board, a range of activities are available to you; sip a cocktail by the pool, try your luck in the casino, work-out in the fitness center or just relax and soak up the glorious Mediterranean sun. You will be wined and dined with an array of enticing international and Greek cuisine.

Day 2
Mykonos Full day!
At 08:00 the ship will arrive in Mykonos.
An island that needs little introduction! A summer holiday meeting point for jet setters worldwide, this glittering, glamorous island has everything you expect: fantastic beaches with crystal clear water, whitewashed sugar-cube houses with blue wooden shutters, narrow streets to stroll around, and last, but not least an incredible nightlife! There are so many options available to you to select from.
As the ship will be overnighting in Mykonos you can enjoy the nightlife on this spectacular island.
Day 3
Milos
Enjoy a nice breakfast as the ship sails from Mykonos to Milos. Take advantage of the time until arrival in Milos to enjoy the cruise and the beautiful Aegean sea.
At 13:00 the ship will arrive in Milos.
One of the less known islands of the Aegean, and one of the best hidden secrets. It is one of the cruise highlights, one of the prettiest islands and definitely worth exploring.
You may opt to take the optional excursion to be guided through all the interesting spots – or venture alone and explore the pristine beaches.
Day 4
Santorini
One of the highlights of this cruise is the two day stay at Santorini.
In the morning the ship will be anchored off Santrorini. Marvel at the captivating views of this magnficient island as you arrive at this awesome destination.
Day 5
Santorini

Late in the evening the ship will depart from Santorini towards the island of Crete.
Day 6
Crete (Heraklion)
Your cruise ship will be docked in Crete, and arriving at Heraklion port at 07:00.
In Heraklion you have the opportunity to participate in a very interesting excursion to Knossos and see the ruins of the Palace of King Minos. Or alternatively explore the town of Heraklion and enjoy a coffee in one of the outdoor cafes, or maybe a taste the wonderful Cretan cuisine.
Day 7
Kusadasi (Turkey)

One of the most important ancient sights is that of Ephessos (about half an hour from the port of Kusadasi). For those who have not visited Kusadasi before, we highly recommend the optional tour to Ancient Ephessos; the city which served as one of the key centers for Christianity and, due to its strategic location, was a significant trade center of the ancient world. It remains one of the most well-preserved sights in history and is a truly memorable highlight for visitors to Turkey. Stroll between marble colonnades up to Hadrian’s Temple, Trajan’s Fountain and the Great Theater carved into the side of Mt Pion for an experience that’s out of this world. You’ll be whisked back in time through centuries and glory days of the Roman Empire in a journey to one of the most complete Classical cities in Europe.
If you opt not to take the excursion to Ephessos, you could venture out and walk the colorful port of Kusadasi town on your own.

Note: There is also the option available, for those who do not wish to travel to Kusadasi, to disembark the vessel on island of Samos (Greece) in the morning and rejoin the vessel late in the afternoon when the ship is on its way back from Turkey.
Day 8
Disembarkation. Athens (Piraeus), Greece
An early breakfast is served onboard before we disembark our cruise ship.

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.
