Choose between the type of experience you want to get out of the Greek islands or choose to discover some of the jewels of the Adriatic sea.
Cruise Around The Greek islands
Greece, the country of over 200 inhabited islands, harbours so much beauty and history on its shores. There is simply so much to discover, so many places to explore that perhaps a lifetime is not enough, to quote Henry Miller, “It takes a lifetime for someone to discover Greece, but it only takes an instant to fall in love with her.” Cruises in Greece and Greek islands are the best way to start your discovery. Cruise around Classical Greece will reveal a selection of islands within the Cyclades, the coastal mainland and destinations such as Nafplio and Monemvasia, as well as some locations in Crete and Hydra island in the Saronic Gulf. This is perhaps one of the most well-rounded Greek cruises you can take as the itinerary includes some of Greece’s best features. Of course, you can opt to go on a Cyclades island cruise that will immerse you into Greece’s most popular island cluster or if you wish to delve into the cultural heritage of Greece, then you can choose the Antiquity cruise.
Cruise Around The Adriatic Sea
North of the Mediterranean basin, separating Italy from the Balkans, is the Adriatic Sea. It shares the Mediterranean charm and meets with the Ionian Sea the more south you go, so cruising around the Adriatic Sea actually gives the visitor a chance to visit parts of Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, and Albania. Although, this part of the world is not usually highly popular, giving it a chance will fill provide you with the unique opportunity for discovering this fresh destination in the Mediterranean. Croatia’s Dubrovnik is an impressive fortified city by the sea, with huge cultural value. City walls, forts, cathedrals, palaces, and picturesque squares and ornate fountains are the highlights of this coastal city. For a more detailed itinerary, see this post about a day in Dubrovnik. Korcula is a Croatian island of similar medieval flair that is worth discovering. The Saranda resort town area on the Albanian coast is a wonderful place to get acquainted with, just opposite of Corfu island. Also on this route you can visit Paxos islands that are best experienced by sea.
