Day 1 - Istanbul

Arrive: Fri 07 June 2024 / Depart: Fri 07 June 2024 at 16:00

Once the seat of two massive empires, Istanbul has been shaped by its colourful history. From massive Byzantine churches that still captivate visitors' attention to towering Ottoman mosques, history can be found in each building no matter what part of the city you wander through. Architecture buffs will get a thrill from the ancient buildings while foodies will spend their day indulging in traditional Turkish cuisine, like doner kebabs and lamb kefta. If you're looking to take a memory home from the city, head to the Grand Bazaar and try your hand at haggling with the locals.

Day 2 - Cruising

Day 3 - Thessaloniki

Arrive: Sun 09 June 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Sun 09 June 2024 at 17:00

Thessaloniki is a Greek port city on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. Evidence of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman history remains, especially around Ano Poli, the upper town. The ruins of Roman Emperor Galerius’ 4th-century palace include the Rotunda that has been both a church and a mosque. Much of the city center was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1917. The rebuilt 20th-century city has a modern European layout.

Day 4 - Chios

Arrive: Mon 10 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Mon 10 June 2024 at 18:00

Day 5 - Bodrum

Arrive: Tue 11 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Tue 11 June 2024 at 20:00

Home to the famous Greek historian Herodotus, the popular Aegean resort and yachting port of Bodrum is situated on a beautiful peninsula. During your visit, you'll find enchanting villages of houses painted in white and trimmed with purple bougainvillea, miles of sandy beaches and a myriad of historical attractions. The nights seem longer and the city retains a certain charm that can only be experienced first-hand.

Day 6 - Rhodes

Arrive: Wed 12 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Wed 12 June 2024 at 18:00

The Colossus might not be standing any more, but the Greek island of Rhodes still delivers beauty and allure on a giant scale. The island instantly greets you with serene white-sand beaches and wide-open blue skies. See the site in the harbour where the now-destroyed wonder of the ancient world once stood. Then, head to the Old Town, surrounded by medieval walls and seven ancient gates. Don't miss the Palace of the Grandmaster, with its mosaic floors dating from Hellenic, Roman and early Christian times. Shop for a colourful menagerie of seashells by the shoreline – and don't forget to spend some time relaxing beside the translucent blue waves with your Greece cruise.

Day 7 - Mykonos

Arrive: Thu 13 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Thu 13 June 2024 at 20:00

Nestled in the heart of Greece’s Cyclades archipelago, Mykonos pulses with irrepressible energy. With its powder white houses, sparkling blue waters and red-hot nightlife, The Island of the Winds is as colourful as the people who call the island home. You can walk narrow marble pathways laced with purple bougainvillea blooms, or go cycling on two wheels past off-the-beaten-track Ano Mera village. Explore Greece’s maritime history at Armenistis Lighthouse, and check out the Folklore Museum’s Mykonian ship models. Join in the raucous beach party on Super Paradise’s shimmering sands, or watch the sun burn out beyond an Aegean horizon from an open-air seaside taverna.

Day 8 - Santorini

Arrive: Fri 14 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Fri 14 June 2024 at 20:00

Santorini is one of the world’s most popular islands, known best for its dramatic scenery, whitewashed villages and fiery volcanic activity. Here adventure bubbles above the Aegean Sea in the most bold and breathtaking ways. A cable car takes you to the capital of Fira, a bustling cliff-top town awash with old cathedrals, enthralling museum collections and cosy tavernas. Venture to the coast for a swim in the deep blue waters that lap red and black pebbled beaches. And peel back layers of lava and history amongst excavated Akrotiri. Whether it’s by bicycle, ATV or on your own two feet, exploring this Cyclades isle never fails to impress.

Day 9 - Chania, Crete

Arrive: Sat 15 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Sat 15 June 2024 at 17:00

Day 10 - Katakolon

Arrive: Sun 16 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Sun 16 June 2024 at 18:00

Experience ancient history and modern charm in Katakolon, a vibrant cruise port on the Greek coast. From here, you can catch a glimpse of Olympia, the birthplace of the original Olympic games and a shrine to the ancient Greek gods. Cruise to Greece and walk through the Olympia complex to get a historical tour of architectural styles, from the classical ruins to the red-tiled roofs of the traditional homes. Then, stroll through the Katakolon's lively centre to discover unique local galleries and shops, and grab a seat at an oceanfront taverna with a glass of white wine and a dish of locally caught calamari.

Day 11 - Corfu

Arrive: Mon 17 June 2024 at 08:00 / Depart: Mon 17 June 2024 at 17:00

Perched above the Adriatic Sea, Corfu, Greece is the second largest Ionian island, and its size is rivaled by its tremendous history and dynamic cultural identity. Cruise to Corfu and walk through the narrow streets of Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and marvel at the Italianate architecture left from centuries of Venetian rule. A number of scenes from the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only" were filmed in the capital city of Corfu, and you'll understand why when you see the epic coastal roads and immense fortresses buttressing the town. With its rich combination of old fishing villages and immaculate beaches, Corfu is the perfect place to get lost in time during your vacation.

Day 12 - Bari

Arrive: Tue 18 June 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Tue 18 June 2024 at 15:00

A principal harbor for over two thousand years, Bari is a charming city on the Adriatic coast. The old town, Barivecchia, is cherished for its medieval characteristics and buildings. As one of Southern Italy's more prosperous cities, Bari offers a wealth of shopping and dining options. It would be appropriate to do some gift shopping while in town-Bari is home to the ashes of Saint Nicholas.

Day 13 - Venice (Ravenna)

Arrive: Wed 19 June 2024 at 10:00

The off-the-path Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy offers adventure for every taste. Explore the ancient town of Ravenna, best known for the seemingly endless Byzantine mosaics adorning its churches and monuments. Plus a powerhouse collection of eight UNESCO sites. Or venture to nearby Bologna to wander its portico-lined streets teeming with medieval relics— not to mention some of Italy’s most delectable cuisine. In this part of Italy, you can do a bit of it all. From sunning along the beaches of Punta Marina to engine revving at the Lamborghini Museum, and catching cutting-edge modern art at the MAMbo to taking a hands-on lesson in Bolognese cooking.
