    Start of the surprise cruise

    Surprise cruise
    Between the Aegean and the Adriatic lie historic sites and paradisiacal Greek islands. The best part: you choose where you want to go. The guide accompanying you will be happy to describe the highlights of your next potential destinations. The captain will also advise you on where best to catch the sun in the coming days. Then you and the other passengers can discuss your ports of choice together. For example, discover the beaches of Skiathos lined with pine trees or experience spring on the island of Samos with all its flowers. Has the Mediterranean air made you hungry? A detour to the mountain villages of Lesbos, where culinary highlights such as fresh goat’s cheese and traditionally pressed olive oil will hit the spot. Mykonos will welcome you with wonderful views of its famous windmills and picturesque Little Venice. Have we awakened your inner explorer? While on Crete, you can stroll along the historic paths of Knossos and marvel at the romantic summer residence of Empress Sisi in the mountains of Corfu. With winding alleyways, snow-white houses and colourfully decorated balconies, Santorini is beautiful, and rewards those who climb to Thira with a panoramic view of the flooded caldera. You can get there more easily on the back of a mule, which you could also encounter everywhere on island of Hydra. If the weather is nice, we recommend dropping anchor off Sicily: explore the majestic city of Syracuse, the ancient town of Taormina or the “Milan of the South”, Catania, nuzzled in the foothills of powerful Etna. Or will you sail on to the coasts of Croatia to discover wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Sites from all ages? Roam through the old town of Dubrovnik to the Rector’s Palace, marvel at the medieval cathedral in Trogir or trace the origins of Split back to the Romans. Could it be more a little more active? The Croatian islands of Korcula and Hvar are made for hikes or cycling trips with their gentle vineyard landscapes, wild citrus trees and cypresses. Whenever we accompany you, you can look forward to exciting days with lots of room for personalised cruise planning.
