7 nights / 8 days Athens to Athens
On board the 36-cabin Mega Yacht Variety Voyager

Variety Cruises
Experience a harmonious balance between conventional cruising and private yachting, along with an exciting voyage of discovery, unravelling the best of the Aegean Sea. The white washed islands of the Cyclades, stepping stones of summer: Santorini with her sugarcube villages and the historical site of Akrotiri. Cosmopolitan Mikonos with her Windmills and the neighboring UNESCO-protected archaeological isle of Delos. Crete, the largest and southern most Greek island. The crystal blue waters of Vai at Crete, the largest and southern most Greek island. Lindos, a magnificent acropolis on a imposing rock and world famous archaeological site. Mystical Patmos and its UNESCO World Heritage sites. Lipsi islands and Simi, an off-the-beaten track island with her picturesque harbour. Bustling and colourful Bodrum in Turkey. Each day you will discover a new port of call, a hidden cove with crystal blue waters to cool you, a glimpse of ancient history to amaze you and rich cultural diversity to intrigue you.
