Our voyage through the Aegean takes us to some of the most idyllic spots in the Aegean, to unspoiled islands, timeless villages and ancient sites. Join us aboard the 50-passenger MS Monet and explore some truly fascinating sites including the ancient city of Perge dating back to 1000 BC and the Palace of Knossos, the legendary home of the Minotaur. As well as visiting historical sites we also have the opportunity to take in the beauty of some of the lesser-known islands of the Aegean at a relaxed pace, stroll through the picturesque harbour towns and enjoy a swim at some of the wonderful bays we will visit.
After many years of experience of operating cruises in the Aegean, we believe we have the perfectly balanced itinerary with a mix of guided excursions and time at leisure. We have planned some late departures from port, offering us the opportunity to enjoy a post-dinner stroll in some towns which are particularly atmospheric in the evening. As our small ship can moor centrally, we have the added advantage of being able to access the towns and villages by foot in many of the ports of call instead of by long coach transfers. Whether it be the scenic harbours, beautiful bays or the wealth of ancient sites, the hidden islands of the Aegean offer much to the genuine traveller and our voyage will be appreciated by all those who enjoy a relaxed and informal style of cruising.
