What to Expect
Moderate to Active activity level
Cultural Immersion
PACING: 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.

ABOARD SHIP: 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.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: 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.

CULTURAL FOCUS: 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.

Important Notice: The above day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Vantage Tour Director or regional expert.

Ship Accommodations The M/Y Harmony V is a state-of-the-art motor yacht chartered exclusively for Vantage travelers. This sleek vessel carries no more than 50 passengers and can be compared to the elegant private yachts found in the Mediterranean’s finest yachting ports. Unlike big cruise ships, in most ports of call the M/Y Harmony V can dock right at the pier, so you can easily stroll ashore. Ninety-five percent of the 220-passenger Le Lyrial has cabins with private balconies; private bathrooms with shower (bathtubs in select stateroooms) and luxurious amenities. Each has its own climate control, flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet, a safe, minibar and plus robes. The modern, four-masted Wind Star schooner is a luxury motor-sail-yacht carrying just 148 travelers, and all staterooms feature ocean views, closed-circuit color TVs, DVD and CD players, a minibar/refrigerator, international direct-dial telephones, a hairdryer and private baths with luxurious toiletries and plush robes. Public areas include a saltwater swimming pool, a hot tub and the pool bar on deck 4, a lounge and bar, and fitness center. Water-skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling and kayaking are complimentary. More intimate, sleek yacht with ability to remote ports of call. Best value in deluxe small-ship ocean cruising.
