Day 1: Athens (Piraeus), Greece | Embark

Begin your journey in PIraeus, the port of Athens. This ancient city is considered the birthplace of Europe, of philosophy and of democracy, and is the embodiment of the Olympic ideal. World-famous and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, its landmark is the magnificent Parthenon temple, high on the Acropolis in all its glory. At the foot of the Acropolis hill is the Plaka, the oldest quarter of Athens, and the world's most modern archaeological museum, the new Acropolis Museum, has been here since 2009. Explore the city before boarding your ship. 

Day 2: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy the onboard activities and facilities at the Sea Cloud. 
 

Day 3: Nauplio | Peloponnese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Explore the Peloponnese peninsula with its mountainous interior and deeply indented coasts. 

Day 4: Monemvasia | Peloponnese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The little town of Monemvasia is nestled closely against a rock that lies just off the coast. This impregnable fortress was an important trading centre in Byzantine times. Today it is a weekend retreat for wealthy Athenians. Behind its walls, discover the beautifully restored lower town, and meander through the tranquil narrow lanes. This picturesque little town on a rock transports you back in time to the romantic Middle Ages, when it was exceptionally modern and lively.

Day 5: Milos | Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The unique character of Milos' landscape was formed by volcanic activity. Hot springs, spectacular cliffs, and distinctive rock formations give the various beaches their own individual character. The colors of Milos are most obvious where the water meets the stone and forms the coastline. Minerals have colored the sand and stones and each rock along the coastline seems to glow in a different color. Plaka, the picturesque old capital with its typical dazzling-white houses, is overlooked by a mighty castle that offers a superb view over Adamos Bay and the surrounding islands.


 

Day 6: Paros | Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Discover Paros, known for its fine white marble, which gave rise to the term "Parian" to describe marble or china of similar qualities. Today, abandoned marble quarries and mines can be found on the island, but Paros is primarily known as a popular tourist spot.

Day 7: Syros | Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy water sports and activities at Hydra. The island benefits from numerous bays and natural harbours, and has a strong maritime culture. The island is a popular yachting destination and is the home of the Kamini Yacht Club, an international yacht club based in the port of Kamini.

Day 8: Athens (Piraeus), Greece | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Return to Piraeus. Disembark after breakfast to explore Athens, return home, or continue on your independent travels.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
