Athens – Piraeus

Athens – Piraeus

Embark: 29 October 2022
Sun-drenched and mythic, Athens is a big and modern metropolis with inspiring world heritage marvels at its very heart. The birthplace of democracy is also the sprawling capital of Greece today, but most of the major archaeological and historical sites are to be found within a compact area around the Acropolis itself. The Plaka is an enchanting, historic neighbourhood curls around the bottom of the south and east slopes of the Acropolis. Cobblestone streets, pastel-coloured neoclassical townhouses and myriad shops and cafes make this a must for a stroll. PIRAEUS is home to Europe's biggest passenger port and has many attractions including religious and historic landmarks as well as fantastic restaurants. Located only 12 km from the city of Athens. Piraeus Port has four cruise terminals - please check which terminal your cruise will be embarking at!

Kavala

Kavala

In Port: 1 November 2022
Kavala city is a beautiful balance of urban spaces, beaches and lush green foothills. Layer upon layer of history, modern restored warehouses and some of the best seafood tavernas around - step into characterful Kavala. Modern neoclassical mansions, Byzantine monuments and Islamic architecture evoke its long and varied history. Home to a whole host of religious sites that you’ll find dotted around the city, the old town is filled with multihued buildings, a castle with commanding views over the horizon and an Acropolis built on the ruins of the old Byzantine castle. Alternatively, find time for yourself in one of the perfect, tranquil beaches surrounding the city.
Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki

In Port: 2 November 2022
The thick Byzantine walls guarding Thessaloniki give way to an inviting mix of architectural landscapes with winding cobbled streets. Approaching the port, you will be captivated by a city that radiates culture and sophistication bathed in golden Greek sunshine. Palm-lined avenues house glamorous shops and gourmet restaurants. Beautiful churches appear from every corner, seasonal markets sell colourful local produce and shaded spots on Aristotelous Square are where you can sit back with a homemade ice cream and watch the world go by.
Volos

Volos

In Port: 3 November 2022
Summer retreat of ancient gods, Mt Pelion now provides a beautiful backdrop for Volos, with its waterfront promenade, lively bars and Archaeological Museum. Volos is also a handy excursion point for Meteora - which translates as suspended in the air - the dramatic, inaccessible cliffs topped with photogenic medieval monasteries.
Santorini

Santorini

In Port: 4 November 2022
When you arrive by sea, there is no confusing the island of Santorini. Few islands have the power to captivate the way Santorini does. Gorgeous and cosmopolitan, it’s famous for that classic Greek island look with white painted houses clustered along narrow winding lanes, perched atop reddish-black volcanic cliffs that tumble down more than a thousand feet to the wide caldera. It’s easy to see how this island, the pearl of the Cycladic archipelago, can lay claim to being the source of the legend of Atlantis, either. Santorini, or “Thera” in Greek, is most celebrated for the dramatic views of its volcanic caldera, formed during a massive eruption around 1646 B.C. That eruption shook up the island - making its centre actually collapse - but also created some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.
