Fantastic ... all the cruise!
All the excellent cruise! When I got back to the airport, it was complicated ... without knowing the language ... the driver left us in a parking lot with the suitcases. My husband d 75 years operated d heart. If the driver parks at the Central entrance, everything was perfect. At the airport, attendance is excellent.

Not for small kids
If you are trying to safe money this may be your best option. The food is ok, activities are quick but overall coordinated and you get to see what there is. The kids club was not availBle for more than 2 hrs a day, and there is no kids pool. Other than that is ok. You get what you pay for.

Problems with excursions
Greca informed me that I had included the excursion to OIA but in the cruise they changed it for Heraklion. As much as I asked them to respect the agreement, they did not do it. This really tarnished a trip that should have been perfect.

The guide on the Acropolis tour was excellent, very well prepared and friendly. We had problems contacting the agency when we returned from the cruise and we had a long wait for our transportation

Your next stop will be the "sacred rock", the spectacular, unique and magnificent Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. The entrance fee to both sites is included. At the end of the visit, you can either choose to return to your hotel or set out on your own adventure through the charming and picturesque streets of Plaka.

In the morning, your assistant will escort you, in one of our private vehicles to the port of Lavrion, where you will board ship. During the cruise, you will enjoy the brilliance of the sun, the deep blue of the Aegean and take part in the activities and services offered to the passengers. In the cruise package, Greca has included three meals, two excursions, and unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.  In this way you can really concentrate on having a great time!

Your first destination will be the famous island of Mykonos, where your cruise ship will dock from 18:00 hrs until 23:00 hrs before continuing your journey around the wonderful Greek islands. Mykonos is the meeting point of the international "jet set" and famous for its wonderful beaches, dazzling shops, and vibrant nightlife. Moreover, not very far away, there is the historic island of Delos, the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, according to the Greek mythology. This small island, inhabited since 3000 B.C was one of the most significant cultural centers of antiquity. Finally, you can pre-book other amazing excursions organized by the cruise company, so that you can visit more fascinating places and make the most of your tour.
