Greece Cruises


Small Enchanting Ports. Yacht Style Cruising.
See More of the Greek Isles with Windstar.


The Acropolis at sunset. A moonlight supper at the ancient Celsus Library in Ephesus. The sugar-cube houses of Santorini shimmering in the mid-day sun. Like arms joined in a syrtaki dance, one incomparable experience follows another, and your elegant white ship gives you a front row seat to it all. Frame the famous windmills of Mykonos in your lens. Feast on mouthwatering mezes and ouzo under a cerulean sky. Get deliciously lost in the medieval alleyways of Monemvasia. Dwell, if just for a time, in the land of gods.
