Enjoy a night in this vibrant city with time to explore the cultural, culinary and historical delights on offer – Athens provides a taste of what is to come on your Iconic Aegean cruise
The Celestyal Olympia, your cozy floating hotel, calls first at Mykonos,an island so beautiful it will make you feel as if you’ve fallen into a dream.
From Mykonos we sail overnight to arrive for breakfast in quiet Kusadasi, whose white sand beaches are a stone’s throw from the incredible excavation of the ancient city of Ephesus
The holy island of Patmos: many believe John the Apostle wrote the Book of Revelations in a mountainside grotto on Patmos where he heard the voice of God.
We leave Patmos and sail through another lovely Aegean evening to Heraklion, an ancient Venetian port and the fascinating capital of Crete. Greece’s largest island is a paradise of secluded beaches, hiking trails, rivers and archeological marvels, including the Minoan Palace of Knossos and the Archeological Museum in Heraklion.
Santorini. The island’s cliffs rise from the Aegean like a dream. Take a jeep safari into the interior or a cruise to Santorini’s smaller islands and volcanoes, visit the Akrotiri Village excavations, or just sit in a café in spectacular Oia Village andwatch the sunset from 300 meters above the azure sea.
