It’s Time To Re-Evaluate Greek Wine

The truth is that it’s actually long past time to re-evaluate Greek wines. Forget Greek taverna wine, we’re talking about the Premier Cru of Hellenic wines. Cuvees that you never see, simply because they never leave Greece. (Greek connoisseurs drink them all). Bottles that, if you can find them in a wine shop., cost upwards of 30 or 40 euro.

A Tutored Tasting By A True Industry Great


Don’t take our word for it because the man who has put this cruise together, the palate that has selected the wineries, the wines, the wine-pairings at supper and the vintages, is none other than Tim Clarke. Tim is rightly a legend when it comes to Greek wines. A true guru of Hellenic viticulture, Tim and his wife Lynette Arblaster have been champions of ‘oenology’ of Greek winemaking on both the mainland and the islands for more than 30 years.

A Gastronomic Extravaganza

On this tutored cruise Tim will cover Greek winemaking from the classical age through to the present day. He will take you to wine estates for tastings and lunch. He will discuss differences between soils on the islands and the mainland, and the grape varieties which thrive there. He will identify the differentiating factors of wine production and how that has changed.

A Feast Of Wines

To embark on this journey of exploration, you need to be prepared for the fact that every day you will taste multiple wines. There will be tastings in the morning, tastings over lunch, tastings most afternoons and paired tastings with food at dinner. Tim has also worked with our master chef to ensure the food matches the wines he has chosen to offer.

Ports of call: Hydra - Naflio- Nemea - Monemvasia - Milos - Santorini - Samos

The Weather

Reliable sunshine is virtually guaranteed during the season between early May and late October, with temperatures ranging from the low 20’s in early and late season up to the mid to high 30’s from late June until August. Winds are predictable with moderate winds (Force 3-4) from the NW.

The Weather

Reliable sunshine is virtually guaranteed during the season between early May and late October, with temperatures ranging from the low 20’s in early and late season up to the mid and high 30’s from late June until August. Winds are predictable with moderate winds (Force 3-4) from the NW.

IKARIA

This morning, we stop for a refreshing swim at the Seychelles beach on Ikaria island, best accessible by yacht, with translucent blue waters and bright white pebbles covering the sea bottom. After a BBQ lunch on board we dock in Ikaria’s quaint port. Ikaria is an island phenomenon unlike anywhere in the world. Islanders are much longer lived than on other islands averaging 10 years longer than people in the rest of Europe or the Americas. Join our tour discovering authentic villages that march to a different drum by taking a hike in wild landscapes followed by a dip in one of the eight natural thermal springs. Alternatively join a cooking class in a family’s country home, kitchen and garden for a personalized cooking experience learning about life and the secret to the inhabitants’ famed longevity.

ikaria

PATMOS/LIPSI

Early morning arrival in Patmos where you can discover the mysticism and tranquillity of the Island of the Apocalypse. Morning visit to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Grotto and Monastery of St. John plus the historic centre of the medieval town of Chora, filled with grandeur and serenity. Patmos has been frequented by intellectuals, artists, Royalty and discerning visitors from all over the world. Small and secluded, yet spectacular in its own right, known as the “Jerusalem of the Aegean” with a touch of the divine. Afternoon sailing to the authentic Dodecanese island of Lipsi.

We take lunch al fresco and make a swim stop at one of the glittering necklace of 24 islets await – protected by the ‘Natura 2000 Network’ they make an ideal refugee for the shy Mediterranean Monk seal. While in Lipsi make sure to taste the famous Aposperitis red Lipsi wine (it’s our on board treat). Evening at leisure to enjoy the setting of the local harbour at sunset, and a seaside dinner with home-cooked traditional recipes made of local produce. Overnight in Lipsi.

KALYMNOS

KALYMNOS

Early morning sailing to Kalymnos with a swim stop on the way. Kalymnos is a hidden gem of an island for those who crave simplicity. Home of the famous sponge divers at sea, it’s also ideal for modern-day adventurers, with 1,300 market hiking routes to be explored. Today’s visit meets the locals who harvest and produce about 30,000 sponges every year, and you can see the numerous species of sponge and the various stages they go through before reaching the market. Afternoon at leisure to enjoy a hike or marvel at the Esperidon fjord, perhaps the most beautiful fjord in Greece. Overnight in Kalymnos port with quaint waterfront tavernas and bars.

AMORGOS

LEVITHA-AMORGOS

Today we set sail for the white and blue Cyclades. We stop at Levitha island, home to just a family of four who raise animals. Luckily for us, in the summer the family also runs a small but spotless restaurant for visiting yachts, grilling fresh fish and meat to perfection. Work up an appetite hiking one of the island’s goat paths or visiting the abandoned World War II Italian outpost on top of the isalnd. Midday sailing to Amorgos, the island of Luc Besson’s “Big Blue”. Mellowed with traditions, firewater and laid-back villages, Amorgos will make you forget the 20th century, never mind the 21st! Enjoy an afternoon with locals learning how to make the island’s famous “Psimeni Raki”, a local homemade liquor with the flavour of honey and cloves made here since ancient times. Evening at leisure to enjoy the breath-taking medieval capital, 400m above sea level. Overnight in Amorgos’ quaint port of Katapola.

Then we make a short sail for a swim in Koufonisia, or take out the ship’s Kayaks and Paddleboards to explore sea caves only accessible by sea. Afternoon scenic cruise around the nearby island of Schinoussa before we reach Iraklia, a tiny hidden island gem in the midst of the Aegean. Part of the ‘Natura 2000 Network’ of natural habitats, it enchants with the superb views offered by its mountainous footpaths, the variety of its coastline and its own unique sights. There is no supermarket on the island so deliveries come by ferry from the nearby island of Naxos – it’s true laid-back Greek island life. Overnight in port.

serifos

In the morning we reach Serifos, a quintessentially Cycladic island of brilliant light, clear water, and steadfast traditions. Enjoy a swim at one of the island’s remote beaches accessible best by sea. BBQ lunch on board, followed by an afternoon stroll to explore the island’s picture-perfect “Hora” castle-village.

Cruise and Stay - Emporikon Athens Hotel

Location is everything when it comes to exploring a foreign city and we have chosen the Emporikon Hotel as much for its central position as its creature comforts. In brief we’re talking four star comfort in a brilliant location. In detail it’s situated half way between the Acropolis and Omonia Square. As such you’ll find yourself within 500m stroll of all the famous places to go and see in Athens such as the Roman Agora, Syntagma and Hadrian’s Arch – and, of course, the Acropolis itself. It’s the perfect place to grab an early breakfast and you can get the hot-spots before the tourists and be first in the queue. As it is also well located for the little back streets where you can find the hidden bars and eateries the locals use, you can also be first for lunch. In the afternoon shop in the flea market as Monastraki and end the evening with dinner in one of many traditional taverna restaurants in the Plaka district. You’re guaranteed a big day and a short walk home.

It’s your choice – a full package holiday with a 2-night stay in either Athens or Dubrovnik in a 4 star hotel plus a 7 night island hoping and coastal cruise and all transfers. Alternatively you can simply take the 7-night cruise. This cruise runs Athens to Dubrovnik and then reverses on alternate weeks.

This is a remarkable point-to-point cruise from Athens to Dubrovnik, including a transit of the four mile long Corinth Canal, cut in the 1880’s all the way down to sea level so it has no locks. Like every journey in these waters this is a cruise back through history. It’s full of wonderful medieval culture to enjoy, but don’t miss the ruins of the ancient city of Butrint, dating back to 1,000 BCE, in Albania.

For even more culture we recommend you extend your stay for a couple of nights in a city hotel in Athens or Dubrovnik.

Ports of call: Athens - Corinth Canal - Kefalonia - Ithaca - Paxos - Corfu - Saranda for Butrint - Budva - Kotor - Dubrovnik

Optional : Cruise & Stay

We sail in and out of the drop-dead-gorgeous medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, but if you want to explore its multi-layered history, and walk around the walls, (or if you’re a Game of Thrones fan) you’ll really need a night or two either pre- or post your cruise. Our partner 4 star Grand Hotel Park is perfectly placed for access to the old town or the Dubrovnik Riviera.

Take time to see stunning Dubrovnik and its lively seaside by extending your stay, for two nights before or after your cruise, at the 4 star Grand Hotel Park on bed & breakfast basis, with transfers.

9 Night package holidays, or 7 night cruises, visiting Malta, Sicily & the Aeolian Islands

What you'll see on the cruise...

  • The Citadel & Baroque Cathedral on Gozo
  • Jaw-droppingly fabulous Greek and Romas ruins at Syracuse
  • Neolithic (stone age) relics on Lipari
  • Vulcano Island with its volcanic crater and mud baths
  • Lava eruptions on Stromboli
  • Mount Etna – still smoking after millennia of activity
  • The hidden treasures of old Catania
  • The medieval streets of Taormina

What you get on land...

  • 2 nights B&B 4 star hotel stay – Malta
  • Mdina – the Silent City
  • Valletta with a wonderful choice of restaurants and nightlife

 

This corner of the Mediterranean is volcano-central – most of the islands owe their existence to tectonic activity which continue to this day. It’s a place where raw nature takes centre-stage, but it’s also an area of wonderful history and culture. Many experts argue that the Greek and Roman ruins at Syracuse are the equal of any in the Eastern Med and we’re not about to disagree. This is a new itinerary for us – we’re very excited.

For even more culture, we recommend you extend your stay for a couple of nights in Malta – home to some of the most ancient relics in the world.

Ports of call: Valletta - Gozo - Syracuse - Lipari - Panarea - Stromboli - Catania - Taormina - Vulcano Island

The Weather

Reliable sunshine between early May and late October. Temperatures from the low 20s early and late season, to mid 30s mid-summer. Winds moderate (Force 3-4) from the NW.

Our special one-way itinerary departs from Naples and visits the Isle of Capri, Amalfi, Lipari (Stromboli), Taormina, Catania (Mount Etna), Syracuse, Licata (Agrigento) and on to Valetta, Malta. The outbound flight is to Naples and the inbound flight to the UK is from Malta with land extensions available in both locations.

Day-by-Day Itinerary

Valletta

Fly to Malta and transfer to hotel. Afternoon at leisure. The waters plunge deep and blue around the island – brilliant for swimming. Don’t miss Mdina, right in the middle of the island. Once the capital, it has since been more or less abandoned – hence it’s other name, ‘The Silent City’.

Valletta

Day at leisure to explore this fascinating island. Malta is also a UNESCO World Heritage site due to the presence of Neolithic temples dating back to 3,600 BCE, predating the pyramids and generally considered the oldest structures in the world. Valletta, built by the Knights of St. John, is Europe’s smallest capital city with some lovely culture and jaw-droppingly good Caravaggio in the Cathedral.

Colorful typical boats - Mediterranean traditional fisherman vil

Embarkation in Valletta

Boarding at 15:00 for welcome cocktails and cruise briefing. Dinner on board but chance to explore this wonderful old port.

Valletta – Gozo Island

After a swim stop at one of Gozo’s beautiful beaches we dock after lunch. There is an optional excursion to the Citadel, the Baroque Cathedral and other sites, followed by a wine tasting. Overnight at sea.

Harmony G

Syracuse, Sicily

Many people are unaware that Syracuse rivalled Athens in importance in the Hellenic world – the Greek theatre seats 15,000. The Roman ruins are equally impressive and, altogether, it’s a Culture Vulture’s delight. We promise you’ll be amazed. Overnight at sea.

Lipari

Due to the volcanic rock, Homer claimed that this, the largest of the Aeolian Islands, looked like a ‘wall of bronze’. Civilisation here dates back to 1700 BCE although the most impressive buildings are of 16th century Spanish creation. Loads of time to explore as we overnight in harbour.

Vulcano Island – Panarea – Stromboli

A day of nature at it’s most powerful, starting the day on Vulcano Island with its mud baths, and ending cruising past the active volcano of Stromboli. In between there’s a chance to stroll and relax over a drink on quaint Panarea.

Catania

The chance to get really up close and personal volcano style with an optional visit to Mount Etna, highest point on Sicily and still active. Later we explore the old Italian city of Catania. Don’t miss the chance to sample a glass of Grappa as a nightcap.

Catania – Taormina

Taormina is a delight of medieval sttreets and piazzas around the famous Corso Umberto where the locals strol and pose. Today’s optional tour also includes the wonderful Greek Amphitheatre. Afternoon at leisure before farewell dinner on board en route back to Malta.

Valletta

Breakfast then disembarkation between 9:00 – 10:00

Cruise and Stay - La Falconeria Hotel

Valletta is known as ‘a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen’ and you couldn’t hope for a more traditional hotel than La Falconeria. There is wonderful history here as, back in the days of The Knights of St. John, the nobles bred and trained their Maltese Falcons in this street, one of which was sent to the King of Spain every year as rent! The very front of the hotel building is hundreds of years old – the rear was destroyed during WWII and rebuild in more modern style around a central courtyard. Its rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, and you’ll find all the creature comforts you would expect. The real beauty of the hotel is its location – you can easily stroll to all the ‘must see’ places, you can catch a ferry across to Sliema, the bus station
is within walking distance and the streets around the old town are full of colourful eateries and bars in which to sit, quench thirst and appetite, and watch the world go by. Finally, whilst you’re here, make sure you make the trip to M’Dina – the silent city. It’s totally mesmerising. We’re huge fans.

Newly refurbished as a 5 Star ‘Art Hotel’, and reopened in August 2020, the Royal Olympic is one of the most exciting places to stay in Athens. It’s the ideal place for people who like their holiday accommodation to be a little extravagant. The public areas are sumptuously appointed, and the rooms are elegant. Come here and you cannot help but feel pampered and cosseted. If you need more reason to reserve your room the roof terrace, overlooking the Parthenon 300m away, is a total delight. Even Pericles who rebuilt the Acropolis in the Golden Age of Greece wouldn’t have had views like this as he ate his breakfast or dinner. Include a lovely swimming pool in which to cool off after a day sightseeing and it’s altogether wonderful. The central location makes it the perfect base to explore the antiquities by day and the cafes and restaurant areas by night. Although if you don’t take at least one dinner on the roof-terrace to see the illuminated city you really will be missing out.

Tahiti & The Islands Of French Polynesia

Few words are more evocative of Pacific Island cruising than ‘Tahiti’ – thanks to great French painter Paul Gaugin we can immediately conjure up images of coconut palms and grass skirts. Yet Thaiti is just one of the treasures on offer.

This wonderful South Pacific archipelago is dotted with islands sculpted by sky-piercing, moss-green peaks and lined with vivid turquoise lagoons. Island-hopping in a small ship is the only way to see every landscape, from geometric ridges strung with waterfalls on the high islands to flat, desert-like atolls where lagoons far outsize the landmass. As you will discover there are many sides to

The Islands of Tahiti but, as any local will tell you, they are all connected by ‘Mana’ – the life force and spirit at the very soul of French Polynesia.. From the moment you arrive here, you will be embraced by it

A Choice Of Two Itineraries – 12 Day Or 8 Day

Tahiti is half-a-world away in every respect so, having come this far, we think it’s only sensible to give you a choice of itineraries, along with the option to extend your visit with a land stay (see below). The only way to see these islands is by boat and, to make the most of your adventure, we recommend the 12 days cruise – that way you get to enjoy the full flavour of the archipelago.

The 8 days cruise is ideal if you’re tighter for time, or for those who want to make sure they see the beauty of the islands but also get chance to spend some time on shore ‘living the Polynesian dream’.

12 Days In The South Pacific

Our 12 days cruise follows a similar journey around the Society Islands as the 8 days cruise, but also ventures north to explore the many small ‘atolls’ of the Tuamotu Islands. This is one of the most enchanting areas of the South Pacific, if not the world, much beloved by famous French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau for its lagoons and marine life.

The Weather

In French Polynesia, a vast archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean, the climate is tropical, influenced by the south-east trade winds, with a hot and humid season from November to April and a cooler season from May to October. The hot season is also the rainiest, in addition, from December to April, there’s the risk of cyclones (except on the Marquesas Islands). The temperatures vary little throughout the year, but they are high on the northern islands and gradually cooler as you move to the south.

Day-by-Day Itinerary

Papeete, Tahiti

Papeete, Tahiti

 
Embarkation 14.30 to 16.00 followed by an afternoon departure to Bora Bora – welcome cocktails and dinner will be served at sea!

Bora Bora

Bora Bora

Bora Bora is possibly the most photographed place on earth and any visit is a once in a lifetime dream. Panorama II cruises into Bora Bora lagoon, with Mount Otemanu standing tall in the centre, to begin 2 days spent in paradise. Whilst here we offer a variety of optional activities such as the 4×4 Bora Bora Cultural Tour, the Snorkeling with Stingrays and Sharks excursion, the Open-air Lagoon Aquarium experience, the Bora Bora tour by ‘le Truck’ and more. We spend the night at anchor.

Bora Bora - Taha'a

Bora Bora – Taha’a

This morning we continue our Bora Bora activities. After lunch we cruise the Bora Bora lagoon and sail to Taha’a, making an early afternoon arrival at this true botanical paradise. The fertile valleys and sloping hillsides are covered with banana, watermelon and coconut groves, whilst the island also acts as an immense natural greenhouse for the highly prized Tahitian vanilla orchid. Our optional half-day Taha’a Island Adventure excursion allows you to explore the beautiful interior of Taha`a by 4×4 and discover the luxurious tropical vegetation. We have a tasting of local fruit and get breath-taking views of the magnificent turquoise bay of Haamene. This excursion also includes a visit to the pearl farm and a traditional vanilla plantation. In the afternoon we make time for swimming and snorkelling from a Motu – a reef surrounding an atoll. Overnight at anchor.

Raiatea

Raiatea

Today we sail inside the lagoon to reach nearby Raiatea, which translates to ‘faraway heaven’ and once the cultural and religious centre of the Society Islands. Known in legends as Hawaiki, ‘the homeland’, many believe that this is where the great Polynesian migration began and the island remains a place of pilgrimage today. Our optional excursion will start by exploring the Faaroa River, French Polynesia’s only navigable river, by kayak with an expert guide leading the way through Raiatea’s verdant interior. Then, we visit the ancient marae temple at Taputapuatea, a recent UNESCO World Heritage Site, and learn about its Polynesian origins and historical relevance. Lunch is a locally-inspired picnic before we return to Panorama II for dinner and overnight in the lagoon.

Raiatea - Huahine

Raiatea – Huahine

We weigh anchor and sail to Huahine, once home of Tahitian royalty and considered as the cradle of Polynesian culture. The island maintains the largest concentration of ancient marae (temples) in French Polynesia, some of which are believed to date back to the original ancestors of the Tahitians, the Lapita people, around 700 AD. Huahine is an immense tropical jungle thriving with coconut plantations, vanilla orchids, banana groves, breadfruit trees and watermelon fields. Our optional half-day tour takes us by 4×4 vehicle around the island to visit Fare, then the archaeological site and a vanilla plantation at Maeva, before going to see and feed the sacred blue-eyed eels of Faie. An optional full-day excursion is also available including a land 4×4 tour plus a boat excursion including a visit to a pearl farm and a picnic. Overnight at sea to Tetiaroa.

Tikehau

Makatea

The island of Makatea is like no other found in French Polynesia. It is not a coral atoll but rather a raised island of coral. The limestone cliffs tower over the coast and the island’s interior shows significant vegetation, complete with a few species of endemic birds and a peculiar expanse of limestone holes. Today, this sleepy but spectacular island is home to three species of threatened endemic birds: the beautiful Makatea fruit dove, the impressive imperial pigeon, and the comely appearing singer extraordinaire, the reed warbler. Our half day optional tour will take us across this unique island to a magnificent beach with rockpools to explore before we visit an incredible grotto. Swimming deeper inside the grotto, this underwater cave system will slowly open out to reveal a spectacular watery cathedral, full of weird and wonderful stalagmites and stalactites. Late afternoon departure to Rangiroa. Overnight at sea.

Rangiroa

Morning arrival in Rangiroa, the largest atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago and one of the largest in the world. One of the best destinations for scuba diving, Rangiroa is composed of 240 islets, more than 110 miles, encompassing a deep lagoon. Our optional excursion will take us to the Blue Lagoon, a natural pool formed by islets and reefs within the central lagoon. At only 16 feet deep, the Blue Lagoon is an ideal location for swimming, snorkeling, and observing the vast assortment of marine life. Enjoy a traditional Polynesian picnic before returning to the ship. Overnight at anchor.

Rangiroa – Tikehau

Early morning sailing and arrival at Tikehau also called the Pink Sand Island. This small atoll consists of countless tiny white and pink sand islets engulfed in coconut groves and hidden alcoves. In Tikehau, which actually means “peaceful landing,” you will find nothing but absolute serenity on her calm and graceful shores. The lagoon, formed by an almost unbroken ring of continuous coral, resembles an immense natural swimming pool. This underwater aquarium is teeming with marine life. According to the legendary marine researcher Jacques Cousteau, it has a higher concentration of fish than any other lagoon in French Polynesia. Our optional walking tour will take us to one of the family-owned fish farm where they trap different species of fish in a maze of underwater fencing. Much of their catch is then shipped to Papeete and sold at the local markets. We will visit Tuherahera at the southern side where most locals live, leaving the remainder of the atoll virtually untouched. In fact, the northeastern quarter is mostly uninhabited. Naturally adorned with colorful flowers such as hibiscus and bougainvillea, Tuherahera is one of the most attractive villages in the Tuamotu Atolls. Afternoon sailing to Tetiaroa.

Tetiaroa – Mo’orea

A haven for birds, sea turtles and all kinds of marine life, Tetiaroa is treasured among Tahitians who know it as a sacred place. So sacred, that at one time the coconut-dotted white sand beaches and crystalline lagoon of this uninhabited atoll was an exclusive getaway for Tahitian royalty. It’s not surprising that actor Marlon Brando fell under its spell during the filming of “Mutiny on the Bounty” in 1960 and later went on to become its owner. Under his direction a luxury eco-resort was designed and it operates in 100 % sustainable manner. We will spend the morning on this charming island, exploring the lagoon and snorkeling in its crystal clear waters. Enjoy an optional guided walking tour to the islet of Tahuna Iti, the Birds’ Island. The islet shelters one of the largest colony of birds in Tahiti and is a national reserve for seabirds, frigates, sterns, phaetons (straw tails), brown gannets and other petrels. Afternoon sailing and evening arrival at Moorea.

Mo’orea

Mo’orea is believed to be the inspiration for the mythical Bali Hai from James Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific. Eight gargantuan mountain peaks rise from its magnificent lagoon, creating a distinctive silhouette visible from the western coast of Tahiti. Morning and afternoon optional half day excursions; a/ a Snorkeling and ray tour b/ a Nature & Culture Tour taking you to admire magnificent views in the interior of the island. Tonight we will enjoy our Farewell Dinner. Overnight at anchor.

Papeete, Tahiti

Papeete, Tahiti

Early morning sailing to Tahiti. Morning arrival in Papeete. Disembarkation at 9:00 am after breakfast.

8 Day Cruise

A round trip cruise that starts and ends in Tahiti, 8 days giving you just enough time to really experience the awesome beauty of French Polynesia’s world-famous Society Islands. Small ship cruising is by far the best way to island-hop through these beautiful turquoise lagoons and allows you to see every landscape, from geometric ridges strung with waterfalls on the high islands to flat, desert-like atolls where lagoons far outsize the landmass.
