Greek Island Cabin Cruises

Sailing in Greece: Greek Island Cabin Cruises

Sailing in Greece: Cabin ChartersThe advantages of these small cabin cruises are many. Instead of being on a big cruise ship with hundreds of other people taking an hour to get on and off the boat, cutting into the time you have to spend on each island, these cruises are like taking a trip on a very big yacht. They have several different boats which generally have around 20 cabins or so, a nice restaurant, a crew of around 15, and a number of different itineraries like the sample one I have included below. The boats are based in several different ports so for example if you wanted to sail the Ionian Islands you would start from Corfu, hitting the other islands and mainland ports and beaches down to Kefalonia and back. The Diogenes starts in Crete and sails to Rhodes and the Dodecanese and back. The Panorama starts in Lavrion and visits Kea,  Milos, Folegandros, Santorini, Paros, Mykonos, Delos before returning.

For those of you who want to take a cruise and don't like crowds these are the way to go.
