Mykonos, in the heart of the Aegean Sea, is perhaps the most recognizable of the Cyclade Islands, with its quaint blue and white villages and storybook atmosphere. Whether you are arriving from Croatia or Greece, the Cyclades are home to some of Greece's best-preserved ruins. There are several ways you'll be able to explore Mykonos: If you want to get a taste of the local flavor, then you'll enjoy the musical markets, bakeries & savory vineyards surrounding the towns. More active travelers might like to take a horseback ride through the idyllic countryside to the secluded beach of Fokos. Or you could try your hand at sailing a small boat to see the uninhabited island of Tragonisi, known for its beautiful coastline and caves. Your time on Mykonos will be bookended by other fantastic sites throughout the Mediterranean. Let us know when you're ready to start planning your trip to Mykonos!

Greece FAQs

Why should I choose a Mediterranean cruise?
A Greek cruise will take you to some of the top destinations around the Mediterranean at the value of an all-inclusive journey that offers lodging, meals, and daily tours and excursions. Enjoy the comfort of one of the nicest ships that we feature as you voyage around the Mediterranean. Cruises are quickly becoming the most popular way to visit Europe, compared to the land-based tours which require you to either stay in one region the entire time or pack and unpack your suitcase every time you get to a new city. 

What should I look for on a Greek cruise ship?
The elegant yachts that sail the Greek Mediterranean combine style and luxury. You will enjoy the intimate atmosphere of a small yacht, typically with occupancy for between 50-200 passengers. Comfortable and spacious cabins, a sun deck, and a dining area and bar are all standard on these vessels.

Are there five-star boats that explore Greece?
While the boats that explore Greece are technically not five stars due to their smaller size and fewer onboard amenities, you will find that the overall experience is truly a five star journey. With all-inclusive itineraries guided by local experts and a comfortable or even luxurious boat that will serve as your home for the duration of the trip, you won't be disappointed with your cruise of Greece and the Mediterranean.

What is dining like?
No other country more perfectly captures traditional Mediterranean cuisine better than Greece. The local flavors will melt in your mouth in a savory blend that characterizes this region, as prepared by talented local chefs.

Do Greek cruises ever visit destinations that aren't on the coast?
Definitely! Greece is full of amazing attractions, many of which are the highlights of the islands and coastal cities. However, there are a number of attractions that you will arrive to by bus as well after your ship has docked in the closest port.

Will my vessel have WiFi?
It's possible, but not all vessels offer WiFi. Even on the vessels that do have WiFi, it's possible that your cruise route will take you out of range of a signal, meaning that you could be without WiFi for several days at a time.

What kind of power outlets are there? Will I need a converter?
You will need a plug adapter for the outlets – you will either find three flat prongs in the British style or two round prongs in the European style. And although the power is 220v, in contrast to the 110v North American power, typically most appliances and devices are made to handle both.

How can I save money on a river cruise?
Save money on a river cruise by visiting the Greece Deals page or by letting our travel experts know where you want to go. We'll let you know when we have new promotions available. We recommend that you don't save money by choosing a lesser cabin, since you will also probably be choosing one with less comfort or space.

Are cruises in Greece a good family vacation?
Greece is an engaging vacation for the whole family and a great way to get your kids interested in history and European culture. Active options are the best for younger kids. Check out our family travel article for more information.

Do Americans and Canadians need a passport and visa to travel to Greece?
All citizens of North America traveling to Europe need a passport that is valid for at least 6 months. In recent years, it has not been necessary to apply for a visa before traveling to Europe if you plan to stay less than three months, however, this situation may change in the future.
