Europe Mediterranean Cruise

Aegean Odyssey: Cruise the Best of Greece & Turkey

The Aegean Sea is a large embayment in the Mediterranean Sea situated between Greece and Turkey. The Aegean Islands are a collection of stunning landscapes, historical monuments and mythical legends, mostly under Greek sovereignty, though some eastern islands and smaller islets are under Turkish rule. On this 8-day small ship cruise aboard the 49-passenger Panorama or 71-guest Variety Voyager, travel between the Aegean Islands and unravel some of the best wonders of ancient Greece and Turkey. 

Each day discover a new port of call, a hidden cove with crystal-blue waters, glimpse at ancient history and rich cultures. Witness the world-famous sunsets from Santorini; discover why Mykonos is called the queen of the Aegean; wander the breathtaking archaeological ruins of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Delos; be charmed by the medieval town of Chora or St. John monastery in mystical Patmos, one of the Dodecanese; shop the vibrant markets of Kusadasi or Bodrum in Turkey; and explore Ephesus, the greatest archaeological site in the Aegean region.

Optional daily activities may be added on to the voyage at an additional price, or simply enjoy time in port on your own. Whichever optional activities you choose, you’ll experience the true feeling of Greek and Turkish life along the Aegean Sea.
