About This Tour
This is a Premier Guided Vacation with hosts and escorts John and Beth Mills
We will spend the first two nights in Athens at a 4 star city center hotel with an included city tour and welcome dinner. We then will board the Celestyal Crystal (480 cabins total) to island hop through the Aegean for the next 7 nights.
It’s easy to fall under an eternal spell of romanticism during a cruise vacation in Greece and the Greek islands. The eastern reaches of the eastern Mediterranean were the crossroads of many influential civilizations of antiquity from Phoenicians to Mycenaeans to Athenians and still more, as historic sites bear witness throughout the islands of the Dodecanese chain. From the majesty of the Acropolis in Athens to the beauty of picture-perfect islands such as Mykonos and Patmos, Greece and the Greek islands cruise Vacation is an all-time classic destination that appeals to every sense. No other country has given the world so much cultural heritage. The country’s lauded history and multifaceted architecture blend with incredible natural settings in port cities like Kavala and Volos— a spellbinding gateway to the otherworldly landscapes of Meteora in Thessaly, the lunar-like rocks of Sarakiniko Beach and blue-domed churches of Santorini.
