Classical Greece shows Greece at its best: the beautiful white-washed Cycladic Islands of Santorini and Mykonos, Crete - the largest and southern-most Greek Island, and the Peloponnese with Monemvassia and Nafplion and their historical treasures. Add to these destinations the less known and quaint islands of Kythira, where you are likely to see turtles swim inside the port, and Hydra, a summer destination for the Athenians. Board the Harmony V for a week-long round-trip cruise!

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
