Greek Island Cruises

Check out my videos below for more about Greek Island Cruises.

On Greek Island cruises, you can mix your love of culture with the antiquities and stunning landscapes punctuated by charming villages. This is a region of myth and legends, and friendly people who take life at a slower pace than many of their neighbors do up north.

The Greek island of Corfu is the second largest of the Ionian Islands. In some ways, Corfu feels more Italian (thanks to the Venetians and the Italians who occupied the island) than it does Greek. Certainly the many pine trees that we saw during our visit reminded us of the Tuscan landscape as does some of the dialects we found around the island.

Birthplace of the Olympic games and home to the beautiful Mercouri Estate, Katakolon, Greece offers shore activities of Olympic proportions.

I spent  my birthday in 2015 in one of the most beautiful places ever: Symi, Greece. Few, if any, of us on Seabourn Sojourn had visited this charming Greek island just 12 miles from Turkey. Francisco, Seabourn Sojourn’s shore concierge manager, was in as much awe as we were as we toured this tiny town that sprawls up hillsides.

The 1988 film Pascali’s Island, starring Ben Kingsley and Helen Mirren, was filmed here. On our visit, every turn around every corner revealed something that looked like it came from a Hollywood set. Check out Picture Postcard Perfect: Symi, Greece

I also visited Nafplio In The Peloponnese, Greece, twice. Also see Stairway To Heaven? 999 Steps To The Fortress Of Palamidi In Nafplion, Greece.

I enjoyed Incredible Crete: A Must For Every Avid Cruiser’s Bucket List as well as Shore Excursions In Corfu: The Best Baklava and Postcard From Greece: Magnificent Mykonos.
