The Aegean Sea is known for its unique, intoxicating blue colour. Myth has it that it took its name from Aegeus, king of Athens and father of Theseus, who threw himself in the sea and drowned thinking his son was dead.
Bathed in brilliant light, and home to thousands of stunning islands, it has been the source of inspiration for many poets, writers, painters and photographers alike.
Embark on a boutique cruise that takes you around the Cyclades, to the famous Santorini and Milos islands, but most importantly to lesser known islands, untouched, unspoiled and breathtakingly beautiful. White-washed architecture in a striking antithesis with the Aegean blue, dazzling beaches and hidden coves, sea caves, volcanoes, isolated chapels, ancient ruins and a rich tapestry of Greek traditions await.
An indulgent journey of discovery that is filled with light, joy, myths, dreams and carefree moments.
Departure dates: First cruise May 4th– Last cruise October 12th 2024
