Explore the Greek Isles
Greece has always been an ideal Mediterranean vacation destination. With over 1,400 islands (230 inhabited), it can be hard to choose which one to visit first. Fortunately, we've made this easy for you.
A unique way to explore the Greek Islands is by cruise. Cruising the islands is an experience you'll never want to end. The journey may lead you to the most popular islands or to faraway islands where you'll travel back in time. If you visit Aegean or the Ionian, you'll find that each one has its charm and character. It's an ideal way to get an in-depth view of Greece's island lifestyle.
A cruise of the Greek Islands promises to offer freedom, carefree luxury and the opportunity to see more than one destination. You're not just limited to the Greek archipelago, either. You may head to the mainland to see the most famous monuments and landmarks.
Depending on your cruise itinerary, there is a variety of experiences for every traveler.
Looking for a romantic getaway? Without a doubt, the Greek Islands are one of the most romantic places on Earth. The pristine beaches, aquamarine water, rich history and culture, spectacular landscapes and vibrant sunsets make it perfect for couples who would like create life long memories together.
