What to Expect
Moderate to Active activity level
7 destinations in 9 nights: 2 nights in Athens (one night before your South Aegean cruise and one night after your cruise) and 7 nights on board M/Y Harmony V
. Some transfers are long, but include sightseeing and rest stops. The cruise includes 6 ports of call in addition to the points of embarkation and disembarkation. Ports of call are for full day and evening, with no tendering (with the exception of Santorini) so that you can walk from ship ramp to shore.
Cabins aboard the M/Y Harmony V
are not the same size as those on Vantage river boats, but are typical of the small ships that cruise in these destinations. Swimming/swim stops during your cruise are subject to special permission of port agents, weather conditions, and captain’s discretion.
Sightseeing is on air-conditioned coaches with guides and there are many walking tours through historic city centers. Steps are to be expected, as well as occasional steep and/or uneven terrain. Ship and tours are not suitable for wheelchairs or other mobility aids. This South Aegean cruise tour is not suitable for passengers with walking difficulties. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair and handicapped traveler policy. Be advised that the M/Y Harmony V
does not have an elevator. Please let our Reservations Specialist know when booking if you require the use of an elevator so that they can work with you to select an alternative tour.
This is an opportunity to experience classic South Aegean cruise ports like Monemvasia, Heraklion, and Santorini, plus Athens. Focus is on the history and culture of an ancient, very diverse area of Greece. You'll enjoy a variety of cuisines, music, and customs while meeting some of the people of the areas you'll visit. Regional lectures and cuisine selections are available on most days.
