Cruise around the Greek Islands.

Join us on this best-selling cruise in Greece as we sail through the Aegean Sea and explore the Islands of the Cyclades. This gorgeous and historic set of islands forms a circle around the mythical island of Delos, which caps off the journey.

Sailing along the crystal clear blue sea, you will be treated to the gorgeous beaches and waters that surround the islands and embark upon an exploration of ancient towns and mythical history.

 

Along the way, there will stops at Greek islands that will offer a truly unique feeling of calm serenity as you absorb your surroundings. The strikingly blue sea is contrasted by the stark white houses of each island and ancient ruins you will find yourself exploring at every turn. Ancient palaces, places of worship, and towns preserved for thousands of years will offer an incredible feeling of perspective on this majestic voyage of discovery.

 

The Cyclades islands offer not only a window into the past and breathtaking views, but an imaginative look back into ancient mythology. The island of Delos that dots the center of the Cyclades is believed to be the birthplace of Apollo. Amidst this island are stunning archaeological ruins and a history that is undeniable and enlightening.

 

Come sail with us onboard the ship m/s Erato and explore a world of calm tranquility, preserved in time on this Greek Islands Cruise. Discover with us the Cyclades, a top Mediterranean destination.
