Day 1 Limassol, Cyprus | Embark

Embark on the Crystal Esprit at the port of Limassol.

The wine flows freely in Limassol, and so does the festive atmosphere. The center of Cyprus' wine industry, Limassol is home to a bustling bar and restaurant scene, as well as numerous wineries that are open for tours and tastings. The city seems to be engaged in constant celebration, staging elaborate festivals throughout the year. The waterfront promenade offers a dizzying array of traditional, handmade goods to expensive designer labels.

Day 2 Paphos, Cyprus

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Paphos offers an abundance of architectural wonders – in fact, the entire city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don’t miss the spectacular House of Dionysus mosaics, charming Omodos Village and the solid rock catacombs of the Tombs of the Kings. Paphos is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Her spirit lives on in the ancient ruins and temples, as well as the modern harbor, palm-lined waterfront and sun-splashed beaches where love is always in the air.

Day 3-4 Rhodes, Greece

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Rich with natural beauty and colorful history, Rhodes represents one of the most architecturally varied locations in Europe. Hellenistic, Byzantine, Medieval and Turkish influences intermingle with abundant sunshine and dry air to cast a magnificent light over the island that the ancients dedicated to Apollo, the God of Light. High on a cliff, the ruins of the Temple of Athena sit amidst the beautifully preserved Acropolis at Lindos.

Day 5 Santorini, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Of all the Cyclades Islands, Santorini is often considered the most dramatic with its dark landscape and iconic whitewashed buildings. The rich soil is ideal for grapes and local vines produce a cherished crop known for its special volcanic taste. Picturesque "Thíra," or Fira Town, laid out along the edge of a cliff at the rim of the now-extinct caldera, exudes easy charm.

Day 6 Naxos | Mykonos, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
White-washed villages and Venetian-inspired mansions shimmer against a dramatic display of turquoise water giving way to an ink-blue sea. Here, alleys bustle with shopping and cafés are close to secluded beaches. Tranquil mountain hikes lead to vestiges of ancient Greek and Byzantine cultures, including mighty Mount Zeus, the highest peak in the Cyclades and home of the king of Greek gods.

Arrive at Mykonos, Greece this day.

Day 7 Mykonos, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Mykonos, a former 18th-century pirates' bastion, is now a sophisticated and cosmopolitan island resort.

Day 8 Athens (Piraeus), Greece | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Venture through Greece’s largest port city, Piraeus, as you make your way to the cradle of Western culture. Athens has long since been the location of myth and muse, and its ancient heritage is still an incredible source of inspiration.

After breakfast aboard the ship, disembark at the beautiful Athens, Greece.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues.
