Unexplored Greek Islands – Limited Collection Cruise

A cruise voyage unraveling the most authentic Cycladic and Dodecanese islands of Greece. Discover unknown gems with rich history, incomparable light, translucent water, and heavenly beaches. Highlights include: Cape Sounion · Ikaria · Patmos · Lipsi · Kalymnos · Amorgos · Koufonisia · Iraklia ·Serifos.

Aboard the 17-Cabin Mega Yacht Callisto

Discover the magic of Greece on an Aegean islands cruise that explores the less visited islands of the Cyclades and the Dodecanese.

Mega yacht Callisto accommodates up to 34 passengers in 17 cabins and is serviced by a highly professional crew of 16. These intimate boutique cruises allow you to visit smaller ports that the larger mega cruise ships cannot visit, and you will enjoy an intimate and highly serviced atmosphere during your time on board. This is probably the best way to visit the Greek islands in a limited period and because much of the travelling happens at night, you have more time to spend on each island.

Highlights

  • View the beautiful Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion.
  • Explore the traditional beauties of Ikaria, Patmos, Lipsi and Kalymnos islands in the Dodecanese
  • Discover the forgotten secrets of the Small Cyclades islands of Amorgos, Koufonissia and Irakleia
