Variety Cruises has released the details for new three-night/four-day and four-night/five-day mini cruises that will sail through the Greek Islands and the Aegean Sea from winter to spring in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Both cruises will travel round trip from Athens aboard the Callisto, a 17-cabin motor yacht. The ship will sail through the Greek Archipelago with stops at Aegina, Santorini, Delos and Mykonos.  

Passengers will start off with a welcome dinner in Aegina, an island known for its beaches, fishing villages and archaeological sites. The next day guests have the option to take a full-day trip onto Santorini and see the sunset from the beach town of Oia.  Then travelers will then see the island of Delos, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, passengers will have the option of visiting the Archaeological Museum of Delos or exploring on their own.

The five-day trip also includes an overnight stay on Mykonos, an island known for its nightlife, scenic towns, iconic 16th century windmills and beaches. This itinerary will additionally include a visit to the island of Syros, recognized for its history, art, music, architecture and folk culture.

Based in Athens, Greece, Variety Cruise owns and operates 11 ships. The company leads cruises to Greece, Spain and Portugal, the Adriatic Sea, Cape Verde, the Seychelles, West Africa, Costa Rica & Panama, Cuba, Bali, Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Iceland.
