Private Independent Travel

While there are many ways to tour the Greek Isles, you’ll find that exploring aboard an authentic tall ship on a Greece small ship cruise offers an unrivaled experience and guarantees an in-depth encounter with all its wonders. The combination of this peerless ship and the expedition-style voyage sends you off exploring in the company of knowledgeable and engaging companions who can illuminate all you’ll see and offers you an extraordinary experience.

Day 1

    Athens / Embark in Piraeus

    Arrive in Athens, and make your way to your hospitality suite at the Electra Palace Hotel, located in the shadow of the Acropolis. After lunch in Athens, travel to Piraeus, embark Sea Cloud for your luxury sailing cruise and cast lines immediately, enjoying your first Grecian sunset at sea. (L,D)

    Day 2

      Sifnos

      Your first morning on board is spent at sea. You may stop for a late morning swim before visiting the island of Sifnos. Distinguished for its pottery and its Venetian dovecotes, Sifnos is a rugged island with a harbor village and a beautiful upper chora (village), waterfront tavernas and convenient beaches. It’s a great island for walkers or loungers alike. This afternoon, find a spot on deck to watch as the Sea Cloud’s sails are hoisted up their impressive masts by hand as you set sail for the Cyclades. (B,L,D)

      Day 3

        Tenos

        Drop anchor at beautiful Tenos, dotted with villages steeped in Venetian history. The island’s Venetian-era dovecotes, terraced hillsides, and green marble quarries have long made this a haven for artists. Explore the picturesque village of Pyrgos, adorned with carved marble facades, and visit the church of Panagia Evangelistria, where thousands of pilgrims come every year to pray at Greece’s holiest shrine. (B,L,D)

        Day 4

          Delos

          The tiny archaeological gem of Delos is the birthplace of the twin gods Artemis, goddess of animals and the hunt; and Apollo, god of healing, music, and light. Spend the morning discovering the island’s incredible ruins, including the Terrace of the Lions and the exquisite Temple of Apollo. This afternoon, look to make an impromptu stop at one of the many interesting islands in the area. (B,L,D)

          Day 5

            Amorgos

            Drop anchor at Amórgos, the easternmost isle of the Cyclades. Visit the main city, perched in the mountains, and see its beautiful domed churches and windmills. Explore the dazzling white monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa, clinging to a cliff face above the sea. Later, return to the Sea Cloud and enjoy a relaxing afternoon beneath its splendid sails. (B,L,D)

            Day 6

              Santorini

              Incomparable Santoríni is an island archipelago formed from a single volcanic cone that erupted in the second millennium B.C., burying the island's Minoan culture in ash. Sail into the caldera, and drive through windswept vineyards to the beautiful town of Oía which affords unrivaled views of the caldera below. After lunch, ride a donkey or a cable car down the cliff side back to the ship. (B,L,D)

              Day 7

                Exploring the Aegean

                Enjoy a glorious day of sailing among the evocative isles of the Cyclades. Relax on deck with a book, observe the crew as they climb the rigging and trim the sails, and attend presentations by your ship's team of experts on the area’s history and ecology. In the late afternoon, you may have a chance for an impromptu stop and a swim. (B,L,D)

                Day 8

                  Disembark in Piraeus

                  Disembark the Sea Cloud this morning and transfer to Athens airport for your return flights home. (B)
