Highlights

Kythira: A hidden gem


Kythira is an island of Greece, historically part of the Ionian Islands. It lies opposite the eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula. In Ancient Greek Mythology, Kythira was considered to be the island of celestial Aphrodite, the Goddess of love.

Greek Night under Santorini island


Our Greek-night dinner is followed by the famous and much-loved Greek night on board. Greek dance is a very old tradition, being referred to by authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Lucian.There are different styles and interpretations from all of the islands and surrounding mainland areas. Each region formed its own choreography and style to fit in with their own ways. For example, island dances have more of a different smooth flow to them. Be tempted and follow the rhythm!

Hydra's quaint port


Hydra Island, one of the most unspoiled and interesting of
the Greek islands, is a small rocky island in the Argosaronic Gulf, south east out of the Athens port of Piraeus and within sight of the southern Peloponnese mainland. It’s very cosmopolitan, safe and one of the easiest of the Greek islands to access. Best of all, the entire island is a preserved national monument and has retained all its 17th & 18th century charm and quaintness.
