Greece Cruise: Day 3 Diary Entry
Relaxing in a soft sunbed, I felt the warmth of the sun and calm sea breezes on my skin. I unwound, perhaps for the first time in a long while. I saw the fiery sun sink into the horizon, and soon after, a clear sky dotted with stars — the same stars sailors used for maritime navigation for thousands of years. Later, with the sounds of the sea lulling me, I anticipated waking to discover even more.
Sail through the Cyclades to Mykonos, where you’re free to meander ancient streets lined with chalky-white buildings and centuries-old windmills. You’ll also dock at Santorini, with its famous blue-domed churches tucked into cliffs.
THE IONIAN ISLANDS
During your voyage through the Ionian Islands, admire the Venetian, French, and British architectural influences in towns and villages along the way. And take in yet another unforgettable sunset over drinks at a taverna overlooking the cobalt sea.
SARONIC GULF ISLANDS
Keep reminding yourself you’re sailing the same sea portrayed in Greek Mythology. Marvel at Athens’ ancient architecture. In Poros, breathe in the fresh scent of lemons from a grove just opposite the Temple of Poseidon. Enjoy all this and so much more.
