    The highlights of this cruise

    Greece’s second-largest city, THESSALONIKI, invites you to stroll along the beach boulevards or go on excursions into the mountains. KAVALA is also ideal for hiking* – be it along the Nestos Gorge* or deep into the Alistrati cave*. ISTANBUL has always been a melting pot of cultures. Buildings of all religions, such as the Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace* or the Beylerbeyi Palace*, still characterise the former city of Constantinople. A visit to Ephesus* will bring you closer to the traces of antiquity not far from IZMIR. Then spend some carefree days on the Greek islands: discover an insider tip with SIMI, enjoy the view over the white-and-blue houses of SANTORINI, recharge your batteries on NAXOS and look forward to an evening trip to MYKONOS with many romantic lights. Explore more of the jet set’s dream island the next day before saying goodbye after a final overnight stay on board in PIRAEUS.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
