Greece Intensive Voyage Special Offer

The cultural landmarks waiting to discover in Greece are limitless; ancient ruins bleached by over a millennium in the sun are commonplace throughout the country, often juxtaposed by modern architecture and bewitching views.

Cruise from Athens, the world’s ancient capital, to the glamorous island paradise of Mykonos, where an overnight stop gives ample opportunities for late-night dancing and dining adventures ashore. From here, island hop to Paros and historic Rhodes before arriving on Crete for stops in modern Agios Nikolaos and magnificent Chania.

The next morning, arrive in Zakynthos to explore towering limestone cliffs and swim in breathtaking azure waters. Then in Corfu immerse yourself in its unique beauty that blends olive trees, turquoise waters and the maze-like cobblestone streets of Old Town, followed by a day cruising in your boutique hotel at sea. The journey concludes in romantic Venice.
