Interact with antiquity

Join us for this nine-day Aegean odyssey to the very cradle of Western civilization and the classical world. Cruise aboard the m.s. Le Lyrial and call on Crete, Santorini, Delos, Mykonos, Pátmos, and medieval Rhodes—islands steeped in myth and history. Visit the wonder of Meteora, where 14th- and 15th-century monasteries stand high atop soaring natural sandstone pinnacles, and walk through the Palace of Minos at Knossos.

Enjoy guided tours in these storied destinations, free time to encounter their mysteries during the best time of the year, and opportunities to visit nine UNESCO World Heritage sites.
