The ships sails across the Aegean overnight to the port of Heraklion, Crete. After breakfast you will go to shore and have the opportunity to explore the town, so very different to the other towns visited on the cruise. There is also an optional excursion that can be taken to the site of Ancient Knossos, the centre of Minoan Civilisation. All meals for the day will be provided on board. Later, you will board to ship for the sailing to Santorini, one of the most beautiful places on earth. On arrival in Santorini you will have many options for you last evening on board and your last evening of your Greek Vacation. You can wander the streets of Thira, the main town of Santorini, or take a visit to the town of Oia, on the northern point of the Caldera, home to the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Santorini is the perfect place to end your cruise of the Greek Islands, saving the very best until last.
