Greek Isles Summer Cruise - 2022

"Sporades Highlights"

Join us in August 2022 on an adventure like no other!

Mark your calendars now to sail along with us through a collection of

Greek Isles known as the Sporades Islands!

 Home to beautiful beaches, trendy, upscale-shopping, ancient Greek ruins and temples, and the backdrop for the movie Mamma Mia!. 

You won't get there on those big cruise ships and you'd even have a hard time getting a flight between these islands.  This is a unique itinerary not to be missed, brought to you by ICO and CE in Italy/Europe and offered by invitation only!

The Details

THE VESSEL

With a capacity of just 166 passengers, traveling aboard the Star Flyer is just like traveling on a private yacht.  Feel free to roam about the upper deck, grab a lounge chair and read a book, or hop in one of the pools, maybe even climb up to the crows nest or take a turn at the wheel.  You'll never feel confined or far from open space and fresh air. The atmosphere is laid back, but the service and style is anything but!  Your crew is warm and hospitable and the ship is well-appointed with gorgeous teak and mahogany accents. Stabilizers keep the ship steady, so there's none of that rocking and rolling you'll find on the big megaships.  This is truly the perfect setting and vibe for our group and why we sell out every year!  You'll make lifelong friends and talk about this trip for years to come!

THE ITINERARY

We Begin in athens

Walking in the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle arguing about who was the greatest philosopher. Ancient Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, is a city for all eternity.
