Cruise to Greece.
“The 7-Day Jewels of the Cyclades”.
A Cyclades cruise on board a yacht
visiting these fabulous Islands.
The best of the Greek Isles
Aboard the gorgeous m/s Galileo, you will glide along the rich blue waters of the Aegean Sea in a vessel that combines the luxury of private yachting and the added space and amenities of a conventional cruise ship.
This combination offers the privacy, luxury, and added fun one looks for in a special cruise through the Mediterranean. Along your travels through the sea, you will find yourself amidst gorgeously picturesque towns and homes that stand stark white along the shore of a rich sea and beach.
Within these towns and islands your cruise to Greece will transport you into a world of calm simplicity as you enjoy the shops and cafes in each village as well as a remote winery. Go further in your exploration by experiencing the ancient and mythological history that Greece is known for.
On your Cyclades cruise to Greece discover the revered archaeological island of Delos, an area rich with history and mythological import – believed to be the birthplace of the mythical Apollo. Along your travels you will also be awed by the gorgeously preserved palaces and temples that pepper these islands and lend to an atmosphere that stands still in time – a truly breathtaking sight to behold.
