Our voyage begins in Athens, Europe’s oldest city and home to endless ancient wonders. Enjoy a day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea before arriving in Limassol. Visit sites like Kolossi Castle, a former Crusader stronghold; and Limassol Castle, allegedly where Richard the Lionheart married his queen during the Third Crusade.
A late stay and a Destination Celebration event in Rhodes is up next, where first on your agenda should be the waterfront where once stood the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Continue your immersive experience with another late stay, this time in the largest city on the isle of Crete, Heraklion. Covering 5,500 years of Cretan history, the Heraklion Archaeological Museum is filled with ancient artifacts, pottery, sculptures, wall paintings, and a Minoan collection showcasing true masterpieces.
A late stay in Santorini means plenty of time to head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompeii, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied (and explosive) past.
Mykonos is idyllic in every way, from the brilliant blue water in its harbor to the rows of 16th-century Venetian windmills. Be sure to soak it all in before debarking in Athens.
Dine in luxury and elegance at the specialty restaurants of Azamara, where you’ll savor a heavenly experience at a down-to-earth price.
At Aqualina, tantalize your palate with some of Italy’s most celebrated dishes, as well as contemporary inventive cuisine. Expect a marvelous evening in a warm ambiance with stunning views and lush décor at Prime C steakhouse. And don’t miss the Chef’s Table, an exclusive dining experience pairing multiple delectable courses with perfectly matched wines.
