Nights 7 Nights
1
Athens, Greece
Fly from the UK and arrive in Athens where you will be transferred to the port to board Seabourn Encore for your seven night cruise.
2
Agios Nikolaos, Crete
The coastal town of Agios Nikolaos sits on the Greek island of Crete, east of the island's capital Heraklion. Lake Voulismeni is home to many tasty seafood restaurants and independent cafes; stroll around here and keep an eye out for ducks. Shop along the port area of Agios Nikolaos or perhaps take a boat tour to Spinalonga Island and appreciate the ruins caused by Turkish invasion. Voulisma Beach is the perfect combination of spectacular clear waters and soft sand; rest here on sunny days. Wander the waterfront and come across the Europa Statue & Horn of Amalthea; two impressive works of art. For a true taste of Cretan village life, you'll discover that Kritsa is a short drive away and is home to white-washed houses and timeless olive groves.
3
Patmos, Greece
The Greek island of Patmos sits in the eastern Aegean Sea, separated from Turkey by the Mycale Strait. This sacred island is rumoured to be the place where Saint John wrote the Book of Revelation and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit the cave-based Holy Monastery of the Apocalypse, between the port of Skala and Patmos Town, where Saint John is believed to have heard the voice of God. Patmos Town is home to the Monastery of Saint John the Divine, which boasts 14th-century frescoes and also a treasury/library packed with over 2,000 ancient books including parts of the manuscript of St Mark's Gospel. Lively Skala is the perfect spot to unwind and sample local produce, fish, and drinks in the traditional bakeries and seaside tavernas and cafes.
4
Kusadasi, Turkey
The Turkish port of Kusadasi is today's port of call. Enjoy a morning's shopping around Kusadasi's lively bazaars or spend a few hours sunbathing on the nearby Long and Ladies Beaches. A trip to Ephesus is a must for culture fans - home to the Temple of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the World) and Library of Celsus. Make for the hills of Selcuk to admire the House of the Virgin Mary and taste local fruit-based wines in Sirince.
5
Cesme, Turkey
The Turkish resort of Çeşme sits 90km west of Izmir on the shores of the Aegean Sea. Overlooking the harbour you'll see the restored military fortress of Çeşme Castle; now home to Çeşme Archaeology Museum filled with displays of marble busts, metal coins, and artefacts from nearby excavations. Pay a visit to the Statue of Cezayirli Gazi Hasan Paşa, Ataturk Statue, Ayios Haralambos Church, and Çeşme Belediye. On the eastern side of the Çeşme peninsula you can spend time at the sandy Ilica Beach complete with warm thermal sulphur springs; while the nearby Aqua Toy City waterpark is all about fun times for all the family. The clear turquoise waters around Çeşme are perfect for snorkelling and there are many accessible dive sites too. Explore the designer shops and chic restaurants in and around Çeşme Marina and look forward to bargain-hunting at the weekly Çeşme town market each Sunday.
6
Mykonos, Greece
Mykonos sits in the Aegean Sea with traditional white-washed houses and bright-blue waters. Wander the twisting narrow lanes, which were originally designed to confuse pirate invaders, and discover quaint shops and boutiques. Visit stylish beach bars, modern restaurants and see the iconic 16th-century Venetian windmills which overlook Mykonos town — the island's capital.
7
Skiathos, Greece
Skiathos is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea and part of the Sporades archipelago. Its pretty beaches and vibrant nightlife scene attract visitors in the summer months. Skiathos Town is where you'll find most of the fun; there are plenty of friendly bars and restaurants and the old harbour boasts plenty of charm. Enjoy a spot of retail therapy along Papadiamanti Street or take in the Greek culture of Evangelistria Monastery. Kastro is an abandoned part of the island and only accessible by a 4x4 dirt track; however when you reach it the views are extraordinary. Swim in the beautiful waters of Lalaria Beach by day and in the evening there are many waterfront clubs around to drink traditional ouzo.
8
Athens, Greece
Today your cruise comes to an end. Disembark and be transferred to the airport for your flight home.
