Jewels of the Cyclades
Jewels of the Cyclades Cruise Introduction
This is an historical and cultural adventure around the awe-inspiring islands of the Cyclades exploring both geographical and historical wonders. From the ancient city of Delos to the volcanic island of Santorini, the largest active volcanic caldera in the world (5 times larger than Krakatoa) this is a delightful cruise in a totally traditional manner on the sail-assisted yacht Galileo.
The 51-meter M/S Galileo is a classic steel hull, motor sailer with spacious and well-appointed interiors that was renovated in 2007 whilst maintaining and older-world charm. On the main deck, a lounge area with an American bar leads into a warm and elegant dining room finished with wood and leather. Outside the spacious sun deck is equipped with sun beds, deckchairs and a large Jacuzzi – the ideal place to bask under the sun, read a good book or just gaze at the scenery.
Life on Board
If it’s too hot then take to the shaded outdoor deck area with an outdoor bar where you can relax, enjoying spectacular sea views. The lounge area is located on the main deck and has large windows which provide magnificent ocean views. The lounge is a spacious, warm and cosy area.
we were amazed and delighted
Many thanks for sorting out the transport and hotel in Athens. We spent most of the day at the new Acropolis Museum as it was just a 2 minute walk from the hotel. The roof garden was a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the Acropolis itself.
We’re not sure how it happened but we were amazed and delighted to be offered an up-grade to a Cat. A cabin. The Ship Manager’s explanation was that Seafarer had been their longest/best customer and they had spare capacity on the A deck. If you played any part in this then please accept our gratitude as it added greatly to our enjoyment of the cruise. We thought Galileo, all her crew and the overall itinerary were excellent in every respect. The other passengers were great fun and we’ve made some good friends.
Please keep us on your mailing list as we hope to travel with you again.
Again – many thanks for sorting out our transfer problem so efficiently.
