The Greek Islands

Journey into the history, heritage and mythology of this ancient and beautiful region. Azure blue seas that have been traversed by mariners for millennia are now your home as your Greek Islands cruise takes you past olive tree covered hillsides, through dramatic channels and into the ports of picture-perfect fishing towns. In true style you will approach the glistening white spectacle that is Santorini, and the bustling markets of Corfu Town. Delve into ancient Greek mythology on intriguing shore excursions, and discover ancient Greece’s contributions to science, medicine, politics and the arts. During your time at sea you can dine at a choice of delightful restaurants on board your cruise ship, or just relax on deck in the Mediterranean sunshine, making the the most of your Greek Islands cruise.
