We’ll depart to our first destination, Cape Sounion, at 4 pm. You won’t have to wait for the fun, to begin with, the first stop enjoyed this afternoon off Cape Sounion, home to the iconic Temple of Poseidon that overlooks the endless expanse of the sapphire sea. Leap in for the perfect start to your journey before sitting down with your fellow passengers at the welcome dinner on board as we cruise toward Mykonos.

    After cruising overnight, we’ll arrive at Delos Island, just a couple of miles southwest of Mykonos. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a sacred island and archaeological site with impressive ruins that date back to the 5th and 4th centuries BC. An optional guided tour will reveal the stories behind them, including mosaics, statues, temples, a theater, and beautifully preserved Venetian and Byzantine architecture.

    This morning we’ll sail toward Naxos, but first, we’ll make a swim stop and enjoy lunch on board. Arriving at our destination in the mid-afternoon, an optional excursion will bring you to the island’s charming traditional villages in the mountains. Apiranthos is a highlight, built into the slopes of Mount Fanari with magnificent mountain views and a medieval feel. Delve into the past in a place that’s retained ancient traditions as you stroll the narrow, marble-paved streets. After the tour, you’ll return to Naxos Town with time on your own to enjoy dinner, perhaps in one of the many waterfront eateries serving fresh seafood.

    Our journey brings us to the island of Schinoussa for a swim stop. Mostly undeveloped, it’s located just south of Naxos and offers wonderfully calm, vibrant blue-green waters and unspoiled landscapes. Continuing to Koufonisia, you’ll have the remainder of the day to enjoy this island that offers lots to love. Perfect for peace and serenity, there are long sandy beaches with fine white sands, welcoming locals, and seaside eateries for dining on authentic dishes made with local ingredients while enjoying a beautiful view. Chora offers many treasures along its cobbled streets, including boutiques selling handmade jewelry, folk art, and traditional fisherman’s hats.

You won’t need to return to the ship until 11 pm, and to fill the time you can explore on your own or join our optional excursion. It includes a visit to the Akrotiri archaeological site. Similar to Pompeii, this very well-preserved settlement was buried under volcanic ash during the 1600 BC eruption. Conclude with a famously stunning sunset in Oia and dinner on your own.

Contrasted against vibrant blue waters, it’s incredibly photogenic. You’ll also explore the Geological Mining Museum which hosts exhibits and artifacts chronicling the island’s mining history. As dinner will be on board this evening, sample the local cuisine for lunch on your own before returning to the ship with departure for Kimolos. You’ll have time to explore this picturesque island independently.

From its elevated position, you’ll enjoy a spectacular view over the island while plenty of delights await among the enchanting narrow streets and alleyways. After your tour, enjoy lunch at one of the traditional tavernas on your own and take a walk to Livadakia Beach for a seaside meal. Once back on board, we’ll depart for Kythnos, arriving at mid-afternoon with one last swim stop of the trip en route.

Disembarkation is by 10 am, with a transfer from the ship that can bring you to an onward hotel if you’d like to extend your trip.
