Athens & 7 Night Idyllic Aegean Islands Cruise in Outside Stateroom

Vacation Overview
Your 7-night cruise on the Aegean Sea begins and ends in Athens. Start with an overnight and guided sightseeing to explore the Acropolis, ruins of the ancient Greek capital. Take some free time to enjoy the city before meeting your ship in nearby Piraeus. Sail to Kusadasi, Turkey—a favorite destination in the Mediterranean with its seaside promenade and the fascinating Greek, Roman, and Byzantine excavations of Ephesus. Sail to Rhodes, the site of the mythical Colossus of Rhodes—the 105-foot statue destroyed by earthquake in 224 BC. Visit Lindos to visit the Acropolis and the Citadel of the Knights. You 'll then cruise to the island of Crete and dock in Heraklion, and visit the ancient sites in Knossos—the center of 3000-BC Minoan civilization and fascinating Greek myths. Your ship sails on to the “Black Pearl of the Aegean”—Santorini, and then stops in Milos to explore its volcanic features.

Next, you 'll cruise to Mykonos, with its blue-domed roofs, windmills, and narrow streets to shop and soak up the sun (or shade) in classic Greek style. You 'll return to Piraeus to disembark your ship, then conclude your Greek cruise vacation with two more nights in Athens including a visit to the Archaeological Museum. This affordable vacation in Greece with Mediterranean cruise is the perfect way to explore Athens and the Aegean!
