Sailing: 10 August 2022

Glorious Greece

Get ready for an unforgettable excursion calling on seven Grecian ports, plus a few Turkish interludes along the way. Begin In Istanbul and take time before we depart to explore famed sites like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Basilica Cistern. Arrive in Kepez, the gateway to Canakkale, Troy, and Gallipoli. Here, a stroll along the Kordon (the waterfront promenade), followed by time spent exploring the vibrant cobbled lanes are both can’t-miss experiences.

Mykonos is your next stop, with its charming shops, bars, and restaurants tucked next to traditional whitewashed homes and churches. After dark, bars and clubs light up, and you’ll be glad we stayed late. With a late stay on the tiny island of Patmos, walk in the footsteps of John the Apostle and visit sites revered in the Christian faith. From here, discover the many epic landmarks of Ephesus. Walk in the footsteps of St. Paul at the Amphitheater and explore the house where Mary, Mother of Jesus, once lived.

Continue your immersion in the Greek Isles with another late stay on historic Rhodes (where you’ll be transported back to the days of the Byzantine Empire) before arriving on Crete, where another late stay awaits. Modern Agios Nikolaos seamlessly blends the charm of a small fishing village with the glamor of a chic resort town.

Chania is next on the itinerary, and offers a third late stay in a row. The second-largest city in Crete with a distinctly Italian air, spend your day exploring its Greek, Ottoman, and Roman influences and unique history. Next, Nafplio is one of the country’s most romantic towns on the doorstep of Mycenae and Corinth. Conclude your immersive Grecian journey with Azamara where modern civilization began in Athens.
