From here, island hop to picturesque Patmos and historic Rhodes before arriving on Crete, for a visit to Agios Nikolaos which seamlessly blends the charm of a small fishing village with the glamour of a chic resort town.

The next morning, arrive in picture-postcard Santorini, a delight to explore. Continue to the beautiful seaside town of Pylos and lemon-scented island of Corfu. Discover UNESCO-listed Kotor with its towering ancient walls, before setting sail to enchanting Venice where this cruise comes to an end.

Greece Intensive Voyage Itinerary

Day 1 - Piraeus (Greece)

Embark the ship in Piraeus.

Day 2 - Mykonos

Explore picture-perfect Mykonos with its famous 16th-century Venetian windmills. Perhaps spend the day on the beautiful white sandy Elia Beach or discover the sacred ruins of ancient Delos.

Day 3 - Patmos

The tiny island of Patmos is where the last book of the New Testament was allegedly written. Perhaps visit the Cave of the Apocalypse where John the Apostle stayed in AD 95. Fast-forward 993 in the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian which still stands guard over Patmos town. Then, make the pilgrimage back to Skala for a picnic of local delicacies like fresh octopus and savoury cheese pie.

Day 4 - Rhodes

First on your agenda should be the Rhodes waterfront where once stood the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Just a short ride away, the medieval town of Lindos features houses stacked like giant sugar cubes on a steep hill. Perhaps hitch a donkey ride to the acropolis at the top for spectacular views of the town and Saint Paul’s Bay.

Day 5 - Agios Nikolaos

Agios Nikolaos combines the charm of a small fishing village with the glamour of a chic resort town. The perfect base for exploring smaller islands around Crete, it's easy to create your own personal paradise in Agios Nikolaos.

Day 6 - Santorini

The capital, Fira, clings to the rim of the caldera 900 feet above the sea. Take the cable car, or giddy up on a donkey to climb the 588 steps to the top. Hike to nearby Oia, a quintessential Greek village or perhaps head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompeii, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied (and explosive) past.

Day 7 - Pylos

The beautiful seaside town of Pylos has a long and impressive history. Dating back to Neolithic times, it was a kingdom during the Bronze Age, a setting for Homer’s Iliad, the site of the Battle of Pylos during the Peloponnesian War in 425 BC, and conquered by everyone from the Latin Empire to the Venetians. Today, Pylos remains a destination that attracts travelers from all over the world.

Day 8 - Corfu

It's one of the most popular Greek Isles for good reason. Explore the cobblestoned streets of Old Town in search of handcrafted treasures or while away the day on a sandy beach in town, or head out to the charming countryside. Here you'll find olive groves, lemon trees, and rugged cliffs that are more than postcard-worthy.

Day 9 - Kotor (Montenegro)

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kotor is filled with churches, shops, bars, restaurants, and hidden piazzas. (The latter are perfect for enjoying Montenegrin wines like the red Vranac or dry white Krstač.) The entire city is surrounded by stone, both in the form of imposing Mount Saint John and by towering ancient walls, creating a cozy feeling of protection when you walk the cobblestone streets.

Day 10 - At sea

Enjoy the facilities on board during a day at sea.

Day 11 - Venice (Italy)

Disembark the ship in Venice.

For navigational reasons the Captain of the ship reserves the right to modify the cruise itinerary.
