Begin your experience with a pickup (if option selected) from your Athens hotel or a central meeting point. Then, travel by air-conditioned coach to Piraeus port to catch your ship. Step aboard and cruise to your first destination: the island of Poros. As you take in the views and sea air, hear about the culture and sights on the three islands so you can make the most of your time on each. Arrive at Poros and enjoy around an hour to explore independently. Visit a waterfront taverna, shop for souvenirs or, if you wish, head for Trinzia, a Russian dockyard dating from the 19th century. Alternatively, visit Poros’ so-called Lemon Forest — an idyllic spot filled with citrus trees, windmills and waterfalls. Back at sea, enjoy a delicious Greek lunch at one of two sittings in the ship’s restaurant — either during your 1-hour cruise to Hydra or the next leg of your journey between Hydra and Egina. As you approach Hydra, admire the pretty harbor and get tips from your guide on what to see and do on the island. Head ashore at the colorful capital and enjoy around two hours to look around on your own. Amble down the narrow lanes, relax over coffee, or buy souvenirs in the quaint shops. Afterward, cruise to Egina, also known as Aegina. Here, either join an optional excursion (own expense) to see the well-preserved ancient Temple of Aphaia or delve into the picturesque port town. Stroll along the harborfront, visit an ouzeri or café, or browse the shops. Return to your boat and sit down to enjoy a Greek folklore show of traditional music and dancing as you sail back to Piraeus. After an hour at sea, disembark and finish your trip with a drop-off (if option selected) in Athens. VIP Cruise Experience Upgrade to enjoy special amenities and be spoiled in the VIP class lounge.
