The Star Clipper brings you closer to unique island cultures, ancient treasures, and the breathtaking beaches of Greece on a spectacular 8-day cruise. History lovers can seek out ruins, both ancient and from the Crusades of the Middle Ages. Shoppers can have a field day in the stores and galleries, and beach bums are in heaven, as nearly every island has plenty of sandy spots, some ranking among the best in the world. Starting and ending in the historic city of Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, this cruise delivers something for everyone.

Expand All

Day 1: Piraeus (Port of Athens), Greece | Embark

Walking in the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle arguing about who was the greatest philosopher. Ancient Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, is a city for all eternity.

Day 2: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The ship offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship.

Day 3: Rhodes, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The beautiful island of Rhodes (Island of Roses) has a rich and varied history. The beach at Lindos is among the best on the island, whose capital, Rhodes Town, is a bustling mecca for both sightseers and shoppers alike.

Day 4: Bodrum, Turkey

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Known in ancient times as Halicarnassus, this was the birthplace of Heredotus and the site of King Mausolu's Tomb (4th century BC), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Day 5: Dalyan River, Turkey

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
At first glance, this is a picture one hardly expects to see in Turkey - a lovely, unspoiled lake teeming with fish, a lush marshy delta, verdant farmlands, a lazy, reed-fringed river meandering into the sea. On shore, you can see ruins of the Lycian city of Caunos, with its basilica and fortifications looming over the green marsh where endangered Caretta loggerhead turtles hatch in the spring.

Day 6: Santorini, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The island of Santorini is perhaps the most breathtaking of all the Greek Islands. Around 1500 BC, a volcanic eruption destroyed the center of the island, leaving a crescent-shaped rim of cliffs around a harbor formed in the volcano's caldera.

Day 7: Hydra, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Hydra is a town of stately mansions all built around 1800 by blockade runners who had made fortunes outwitting the British during the Napoleonic Wars. As there are no cars, for the spectacular view from the Monastery of Ilias you have to ride a donkey to the top.

Day 8: Piraeus (Port of Athens), Greece | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Disembark after breakfast and continue your independent trip back home.

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!
