SeafarerCrusing & Sailing Holidays Small Ship & Mega Yacht Cruises

When it comes to cruising, Greece is the place it all began, the legendary hero Odysseus cruising the Mediterranean – literally the sea in the middle of the Earth – for 10 years on his way home from the Trojan Wars.

Meet our own environmentally friendly Greek cruise crew

Seafarer and Variety Cruises have shipped-in our own very special Greek cruise crew for WTM. They would love to meet you and discuss our ‘Small is Beautiful’ cruise programme, featuring vessels of no more than 36 cabins.

Greeks are also famous for their philosophising and out latter-day disciples of classical thinking would love to share their future-facing thoughts about why discerning cruise lovers are increasingly looking for environmentally friendly itineraries and vessels, not only in Greece but across the Seven Seas.

They are Simos Bakas, Chris Lorenzo, Yiannis Terdimos, Dio Venetopoulos and you can find them at the Greek Tourist Board stand, number EU110.

Bali beach Clean up story

Cruise Ship Captain takes plastic problem personally – and is joined by his passengers on beach clean-up in Indonesia.

Captain Leontios examining detritus on the beach at Flores Island, Indonesia

Seeing the problems caused to oceans and beaches by plastic bottles and other flotsam and jetsam prompted Captain Antoniou Leontios, Master of the Variety Cruises vessel Panorama II, to take the issue of cleaning-up beaches into his own hands. Currently cruising the waters of the Flores and Bali Seas in Indonesia, he decided to dedicate a few hours every week to dropping anchor in a bay, venturing ashore with some crew members and filling as many bin bags as possible with rubbish which he then stowed on board and disposed of properly at his next port of call.

Cruise Ship Captain takes plastic problem personally

Captain Leontios and passengers with their haul of rubbish from one beach on Flores Island

According to Variety Cruises UK’s MD, Chris Lorenzo, environmental responsibility is part of the cruise line’s ethos:

‘We have already started eliminating single-use plastic from our fleet,’ he explained. ‘As for the beach clean-up program, our vessels are uniquely placed to do something practical – we only have small ships of 50-70 passengers so we can get close up to beaches and moor anywhere. Overall our philosophy is ‘small is beautiful’ and that’s not just about the size of our ships but about doing the small things that can add up to a big difference.’

 WHERE SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL FOR 2020

Captain Leonntios’ actions have  inspired similar initiatives from other captain’s within the Variety Cruises fleet, so our thanks and applause        to the Captain and all the crew and guests who volunteered their assistance.

WHERE SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL FOR 2020

If you want to get closer to the sun for summer 2020 then a cruise on a vessel called Pegasos (the Greek spelling) must be a good starting point. The fact she cruises the Seychelles year-round is another hint that you’re in for the most clement of weather – the temperature in this island paradise, often known as The Garden of Eden, ranges between 24°c and 32°c. It’s altogether lovely.

Pegasos is typical of the Variety cruises fleet – only 21 cabins and a maximum guest complement of 44 passengers. She is specially designed to handle these shallow island waters in the Indian Ocean (hence her shape) and we have just finished extensive renovations.

The 21 Pegasos cabins, and guest hallways, have been completely transformed to feature new bedding, soft fabrics, wallpaper, wood floors and carpet design. Ensuite facilities have undergone complete modernisation featuring marble and stone flooring. Overall there is a brand-new look with turquoise, blue and soft grey tones reflecting the Indian Ocean.

When it comes to public areas the Indoor Bar & Lounge and Dining area on the Upper Deck were completely renovated with new furnishings, re-upholstered furniture, soft fabrics, a new carpet design, flooring, and wooden blinds. On the sundeck we have totally transformed the bar area with new lounge furniture and a wooden bar reading “Seychelles”.

Our great Value 8 night package includes flights, transfers and a night in Reykjavik at the Skuggi hotel, giving you time to discover this most unusual of capitals

Day-by-Day Itinerary

Iceland Cruise The Land of Fire & Ice

Akureyri

Embark mid-afternoon but as we spend the night here there’s plenty of time (and daylight!) for a late afternoon walking excursion in Akureyri.

Aukreyri – Husavik

Our full day optional excursion takes you back to Viking days as we travel to Husavik via the Godafoss Waterfall (literally the waterfall of the Gods). Todays’ legend tells all about the Krisni Saga which recounts the arrival of Christianity and the end of Paganism on Iceland. Then it’s back to Akureyi and an evening sailing. 

Lake Mývatn - Iceland Cruise - Land of Fire and Ice

Husavik – Siglufjord – Isafjordur

Siglufjord is the northernmost city in Iceland, almost in the Arctic circle and widely regarded as the most picturesque harbour in Iceland. Originally a herring port with a population of 3,000 today it’s a small place of only just over 1,000 inhabitants and experiences ‘midnight sun’ during the weeks of high-summer. In the afternoon we sail for Isafjordur. Overnight at sea.

Lake Myvatn iIceland Cruise - Land of Fire and Ice

Isafjordur

Morning arrival into Isafjordur, an old trading port with one of the largest fishing fleets in Iceland with a folk museum boasting the oldest surviving house in Iceland and dating back to 1734.Our optional morning excursion will take us to the Maritime Museum and walk the town. Overnight in port.

Godafoss - Iceland Cruise - Land of Fire and Ice

Isafjordur – Bildudadur – Akranes

Wikipedia claims that this small fishing village on the Westfjord coast of Iceland is home to less than 150 people. Lonely Planet says it’s surrounded by towering peaks and has one of the best fjord-side positions in the country.  Famous for salmon and prawns and being something of a curiosity one thing is for sure – you wouldn’t get into here in a big ship! Morning optional excursion to Bildudadur, we stop by the Dynjandi Waterfalls, visit the town and the Sea Monsters Museum. Overnight at sea to Akranes.

Iceland Cruises

Akranes

This morning we reach Akranes for our full day Optional excursion to Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful thermal spring, to the Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls area. We will stop in Reykholt which was at one time one of the intellectual centers of the island and had for many years one of the most important schools of the country. Here lived in the Middle Ages one of the most important persons in Icelandic history: Snorri Sturluson. He was a famous poet and politician whose records of the Old Norse language and mythology of medieval Iceland are invaluable to modern scholars. He lived and died here. Remains of his farm and a bathroom with hot pot and a tunnel between the bath and the house can still be visited. In the afternoon we rejoin the ship. Overnight in port.

Reykjavik

Morning sailing and arrival in Reykjavik. All day optional excursion in Reykjavik city before leaving to enjoy a panoramic tour to the volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula. Vikingaheimar, and the geothermal fields of Krysuvik. Overnight in port.

Puffin in Iceland

Reykjavik

We’ve written the cruising itinerary this way around just so you can see how different and off the beaten track coastal Iceland can be. In so doing we’ve saved the biggest place until last – but even then this northernmost capital city in the world has a population only half the size of Reading. Despite that it’s enormously rich in life and culture, design and style, food and drink. Disembarkation 6 am – 10 am.

Recognising the importance of eliminating single-use plastic – the Attenborough effect

The world’s oceans may be our playground but, as seafaring folk, we always treat them with respect. There has been much in the news over the last 12 months about the dangers of plastics finding their way into the seas and Sir David Attenborough has made enormous impact in getting people to reduce single-use plastic from the environment. We not only welcome this, we have been looking at our own use of plastics to investigate ways we can respond and help ameliorate the problem.

Variety named best cruise line for sustainable tourism

As such we are extremely proud to announce that we have been recognised as the best cruise line for Responsible & Sustainable Tourism at the Tourism Awards 2019 ceremony, held in Athens. The awards are held under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance, Infrastructure, Shipping and Tourism and the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO), aiming to promote excellence and innovation in the Travel, Hospitality and Leisure industries.

The awards are held under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance, Infrastructure, Shipping and Tourism and the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO), aiming to promote excellence and innovation in the Travel, Hospitality and Leisure industries.

We will completely eliminate single-use plastic on our vessels by the end of 2019

Panorama: already single-use plastic free

Next year you could be cruising in much greener waters!

In general Variety Cruises put great effort into enhancing our environmental initiatives and running a responsible and sustainable cruising fleet by adhering as much as possible to environmentally-friendly business practices. We are currently focused on eliminating single-use plastic – with items including straws, stirrers, cups, lids, bottled water and items wrapped in plastic – across the fleet. Variety’s first ship to have become completely single-use plastic was the M/S Panorama II since it began operating in Indonesia early this year.

The goal is to completely eliminate single-use plastics on board all vessels in phases within 2019. For more information on Variety Cruises’ Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives,

If sustainability matters to you why not choose to cruise with a small-ship specialist that puts the environment at the heart of its culture, call  or e-mail  to book or for more information.

Anchors aweigh,

Suzie Seaworthy
