Join us for a relaxing and informative voyage to some of the most idyllic islands in the Aegean. A cruise aboard the Panorama II is a wonderful way to experience the lesser known islands of the region and encounter their timeless quality. We have devised our itinerary to allow ample time to wander through the whitewashed villages and picturesque harbours of some hidden Greek Islands gems such as Fourni, Nisyros, Simi, Ios and Agios Nikolaos on Crete. For those who wish to swim in the intensely blue Aegean there will be time at leisure to explore the local beaches. In addition we have ensured there is some day time cruising through some magnificent scenery and have scheduled in overnight moorings, allowing for the opportunity to dine ashore independently and enjoy the evening atmosphere of some delightful harbour towns.
Of course, whilst ensuring a relaxing time will be had by all, we could not devise an itinerary in this wonderful region without including visits to at least some of the greatest ancient sites the first of which will be our call at Delos, a cultural treat as we explore the legendary birthplace of Apollo. We will also visit the fascinating site of Ephesus where St Paul preached and spend some time on Patmos where we will visit the grotto of St John. With a maximum of only 49 guests, our trips ashore will be a pleasure as we explore with local guides who will also join us on board for our cruise, adding immeasurably to our knowledge of the region. Whether you are interested in ancient history, Greek myths or simply the joy of cruising aboard a private yacht and experiencing new places and islands in this beautiful region, our island hopping voyage has something for everyone.
