Enjoying culture, history, and delicious food with the top Greek cruise holidays. Cruise holidays provide people with an opportunity to relax and immerse themselves in the rich culture, history, and cuisine of a foreign land.

Greece is a land of sea. With its eleventh longest coastline in the world and something like 6,000 islands and isles, it is the ideal location for a cruise holiday. Here is a Greek cruise that anyone can take advantage of and enjoy.

A seven day cruise to the Greek islands of the Cyclades by yacht or a cruise ship.
If you choose to sail on a a yacht  you’ll have more time on the islands and of course a different kind of experience since you’ll find yourself with not more than 20-30 fellow passengers instead of thousands, swimming off the boat in isolated beaches with crystal clear waters and of course very close to the water and nature!

Greek cruise holidays will bring to many fabulous Greek islands like Santorini, Mykonos, Delos, Naxos, Paros, Syros , Ios or other.

At the end of the cruise, a couple of days in Athens, the capital of Greece, are a must, so you’ll have time to visit the Acropolis. The Acropolis Museum of Athens opened in 2009, is a must-see location too. If you have more time you absolutely visit Cape Sounion, Ancient Epidaurus, the Oracle of Delphi and Olympia, where the Olympic games where born.

Greece is a land of incredible historical value. Today, people can get a glimpse of the past and let their imagination wonder through the centuries. One of the best ways to tour Greece is by taking a cruise and combine it with a few days in the mainland. Many of the interesting sites are located on islands, which makes Greek cruise holidays the ideal option.
