    1 Thursday, October 28, 2021 Istanbul, Turkey Embark 6:00 PM
    View of Istanbul, Turkey

    Istanbul (Byzantium from 660 BC, Constantinople from 330 CE, and Istanbul since 1930) is the largest city in Turkey and the fifth largest city proper in the world. It has dominated the Straits of Bosphorus, in the NW of the country, for 25 centuries, and as Constantinople was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. It was a metropolis of stunning splendour when the great capitals of Europe were mere villages and is the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents. The influence of Asia and Europe, the religion of Christians and Muslims, and the culture of Turks, Persians and Asians, have all found their way into the daily life of this bustling metropolis.

    2 Friday, October 29, 2021 Mytilene, Greece 10:00 AM 7:00 PM
    View of Mytilene, Greece

    Mytilene lies at the SE edge of Lesbos, a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. The town sprawls around two broad bays divided by a promontory, crowned by the Gateluzzi fortress. The moment you arrive at the large port, the city of Mytilene will win your heart with its air of dolce vita. The island’s capital, built on seven hills, has preserved important features from its resplendent past and its outstanding cultural history. Read more about Mytilene, Greece

    3 Saturday, October 30, 2021 Kusadasi, Turkey 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Kusadasi, Turkey

    Kusadasi is a resort town on Turkey's Aegean coast and the centre of the seaside district of the same name. While best known as a starting point for visiting Ephesus, once one of the most beautiful cities in the world with a history dating from 3000 BC, there’s also a delightful range of activities in town. Places of interest include: the City Walls, of which one gate remains to-day; the peninsula at the end of the bay with its castle and swimming beaches; several aqua parks with wave-pools and white-water slides; Ladies Beach, once segregated but now open to all; and Dilek Peninsula National Park. See all this in a pleasant walk. Read more about Kusadasi, Turkey

    4 Sunday, October 31, 2021 Rhodes, Greece 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Rhodes, Greece

    Rhodes is the principal city of the island of the same name, situated in the Aegean Sea. It is renowned for having the longest summer of any of the Greek islands. It is famous for being the site of the Colossus of Rhodes - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - as well as being the home of the Citadel of Rhodes, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. The capital itself is very beautiful. Read more about Rhodes, Greece

    5 Monday, November 1, 2021 Agios Nikolaos, Crete, Greece 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Agios Nikolaos, Crete, Greece

    Agios Nikolaos stands on the shores of the beautiful Mirabello Bay, a coastal town on the eastern coast of the Greek island of Crete. It sits partly on the ruins of the ancient city of Lato pros Kamara. It has three faces to the sea – the Lake and port, Kitroplatia Beach, and the Marina. It seems less Cretan in character than the island’s other main centres, partly because of its resort style and its generally modern architecture, but there’s a strong local character to Agios Nikolaos that makes it a charming and friendly place.

    6 Tuesday, November 2, 2021 Santorini, Greece 8:00 AM 7:00 PM
    View of Santorini, Greece

    Santorini is a small, circular archipelago of volcanic islands located in the Aegean Sea, about 200 km from Greece's mainland. It is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion some 3500 years ago, which destroyed the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island, and which resulted in the creation of the current geological caldera. Take the cable car to view the beautiful panorama of Santorini. The most exotic spot on Santorini is Red Beach. Read more about Santorini, Greece

    7 Wednesday, November 3, 2021 Mykonos, Greece 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Mykonos, Greece

    Mykonos is the principal town of the island of the same name, which is part of the Cyclades, and could well be described as the most sophisticated of the Greek Islands. Visited by innumerable international celebrities - you may even see some enjoying a coffee on the sidewalk - it is not surprising that it is considered by many to be one of the top tourist destinations in the world. It is also an island with beautiful landscapes, scores of churches, some fascinating monuments, and windmills. Best known for its beautiful sandy golden beaches lapped by transparent waters, there are so many from which to choose. Read more about Mykonos, Greece

    8 Thursday, November 4, 2021 Athens, Greece 6:00 AM Disembark
    View of Athens, Greece

    Athens, the capital and largest city of Greece, is also one of the world's oldest cities with an unparalleled history that spans around 3,400 years. Experiencing long periods of sunshine throughout the year, and known as "the cradle of Western civilisation", it is a 'must-see' destination for world travellers. The city contains a fascinating variety of different architectural styles, ranging from Greco-Roman through Neo-Classical, to Modern. They are usually all found together in the same areas, as a walk through the old neighbourhoods of the famous historic triangle will reveal. Read more about Athens, Greece
