Expand All

Day 1: Athens | Embark

Embark at the beautiful port of Athens for an unforgettable adventure.

Day 2: Athens, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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.

Day 3: 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 4: Paros Island, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Located in the heart of the Aegean Sea, picture-perfect Paros is exactly what you would imagine a Greek island to be – a maze of narrow alleyways and classic Cycladic architecture with its white, cube-shaped homes accented by blue doors and windows. Make your way up to the 13th-century Venetian castle that sits at the top of the hill and be rewarded with a view that rivals that of Mount Olympus. A lack of modern buildings enhances the island’s unique, genuine character.

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 6-7: 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 8: Antalya, Turkey

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
.Adjectives defy description of this ancient harbor town, surrounded by cliffs, beautiful beaches and waters in every hue of turquoise and blue. See Hadrian’s Gate, the triumphal arch honoring the Roman emperor, and the historic Kizil Kule “red” tower, symbol of a city rich in beautiful landscapes of both mountain and sea.

Day 9: Larnaca | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
After breakfast aboard the ship, disembark at the port of Larnaca.
