undefined Take in the intoxicating Greek Islands coupled with Athens and Istanbul on this 12-Day cruise through history. Begin in Athens, cradle of modern civilization. An included tour takes you to the Parthenon, the Acropolis and Hadrian’s Arch.

Board your cruise ship for an exciting 7-Day cruise through the Greek islands, but beginning in exotic Istanbul, crossroads of Europe and Asia. Marvel at the skyline of minarets and mosques before exploring the ancient sights of the city.

Mykonos, Chios, Santorini, Crete, Rhodes – your ports of call read like a who’s who of islands. You’ll feel like you stepped back in time during your Signature Experience touring The Palace of the Grand Masters, in the old walled city of Rhodes, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Take advantage of optional experiences that will be offered to you or spend your time wandering freely on your own. Explore the rich history of the area and be amazed at how different each island is compared to the others. One highlight port of call is at the Turkish port of Kusadasi, where you can visit Ephesus. Stand in awe at the mosaic lined streets, public restrooms, glorious carvings and the amazing library, and try to picture the city as it was nearly 2000 years ago.

Finish your journey back in Athens for one final evening of leisure before raising your glass of ouzo in a toast to the lovely Aegean!
