Europe Mediterranean Cruise

Jewels of the Cyclades

The 8-day Jewels of the Cyclades cruise begins and ends in Athens, Greece, showcasing Aegean Islands known for their whitewashed villages and ports, bright skies and crystal-clear waters. Optional activities allow guests to explore with a guided group or on their own, while touring the unbeatable Greek Isles.

Santorini is famous for sunsets, sugar cube villages and the historical site of Akrotiti. Mykonos is known as the queen of the Aegean, and nearby Delos, Apollo’s sacred island, is a fascinating open-air museum and UNESCO World Heritage site. At Folegandros, a truly authentic, off-the-beaten-path island, visit a famous Venetian castle and traditional, welcoming Greek taverns. Immerse in the fairytale town of Paros with charming fishing ports and local people. And tour Syros, the capitol of the Cyclades, overflowing with perfect sand beaches and unique architecture.

Sail between the most breathtaking Jewels of the Cyclades aboard one of two 49-guest, 3-masted motorsailers: Galileo or Panorama. These sailing ships live up to their name with sweeping sight lines. Soak up some rays from a lounge chair on teak decks. When the weather permits, appreciate the elegance of full sails, or enjoy a dip in the sea at secluded bays and beautiful uninhabited islands, from the swimming platform on the stern. Optional activities may be added on to the voyage at an additional price, or simply enjoy time in port on your own.
