In everything we do, everywhere we go, we stir the senses and explore new experiences together. Cruising the Mediterranean, visiting both iconic destinations and some so intimate that no other cruises can go there, we take you to a special place inside yourself to call your own. This is your journey. Your freedom to choose. Your epic Greek adventure.


We’re the number one choice for travelers to the Greek Islands and Eastern Mediterranean – a fact we love to share!

Our guests tell us it’s because we offer the only genuine Greek cruising experience. Passionate hospitality, intricate local knowledge, and the life-affirming spirit of adventure.

Our awards tell a similar story, with over 60 wins in 7 years. From ‘Platinum Guest Experience’ to ‘Best Itinerary’, we’re proud of them all. And we’re especially humbled by our first prize for ‘Cruise Line with the Greatest Commitment to the East Med Region’.
