Ports of Call
Athens (Piraeus), Greece - You'll climb the Acropolis, the site of ancient Athens, crowned by the immortal Parthenon. Its chiseled columns were raised by Pericles, Athens's great general. Rest your running shoes in the temple of Nike. A little shopping and souvlaki in the Plaka and you're practically an (ancient) Athenian!
Dikili (Pergamum), Turkey - The popular summer resort town of Dikili, tucked away on the Northwest side of Turkey's Aegean region, is relatively untouched by tourism, but with its historic and natural charms, it may not be able to hold on to its quiet reputation for long. Dikili's picturesque coastal area dates back 5,000 BC, and it's easy to see the remnants of ancient times. Choose from therapeutic hot springs and thermal mud baths, or surround yourself with the rich and diverse history of the ruins of Atarneus, the stunning Acropolis theatre at the city of Pergamon, or the wooden Merkez Mosque, built in 1789 and without the use of nails. Explore the dormant volcanic crater Lake Kargol, the Nebiler waterfall and caves, and the Denizkoy and Bademli beaches, or sit in the shadow of the hillside at one of the many harborside restaurants for seafood, Turkish specialties and beautiful landscapes.
Istanbul, Turkey - Istanbul, the only city in the world built on two continents, stands on the shores of the Istanbul Bogazi (Bosphorus) where the waters of the Black Sea mingle with those of the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn. Here on this splendid site Istanbul guards the precious relics of the three empires of which she has been capital; a unique link between East and West, past and present.
Kavala (Philippi), Greece - Clinging to the foothills of Mt. Symvolo, the city of Kavala rises like an amphitheater out of the sea. Known as the "heart of Eastern Macedonia", with historical monuments and buildings almost too plentiful to list, there is no shortage of deep history in this vital port. Perched atop the town, the Castle of Kavala sits like the crown jewel, with traces of Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish influence. Don't miss the impressive 60 arches of Kamares, the old medieval aqueduct, built to bring water from the mountains to the Old Town of Panagia. Take in the classic Islamic architecture of Imaret, built by the founder of the last Egyptian dynasty, Mehmet Ali, and now home to a luxury boutique hotel. Get up close to the city's character on its many cobblestone streets, buzzing cafes, fine beaches and views of the crystal blue waters of the Aegean.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - Ephesus, one of the world's finest archeological sites, awaits. Here you will walk the Arcadian Way, view the facade of the Library of Celsus and visit the Amphitheatre.
Patmos, Greece - There is no missing the Monastery of St. John, a massive dark fortress atop a hill, standing out against the traditional white houses of the village of Hora that surround it. It was constructed in the late 11th century to honor St. John the Divine, who is said to have had his apocalyptic vision while in Patmos, leading him to write the Book of Revelation. The monastery is a warren of interconnecting courtyards, arcades, galleries, and roof terraces. There are lovely chapels, some with 12th century frescoes; the treasury exhibits an impressive array of art; and the library contains a wealth of historic texts.
Skiathos, Greece - A small island surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea, Skiathos is part of the Sporades archipelago along the east coast of Greece. Explore the island's many inlets, capes and peninsulas by boat, or enjoy the endless stretches of picture-perfect beaches. Wander the pedestrian streets, with its bustling marina and many villas, hotels and tavernas. The distinctive clusters of white-washed buildings and red rooftops contrast against the backdrop of the island's lush, pine forest. Built into the hillside, the remarkable 18th century Byzantine Evangelistrias monastery now houses a wonderful museum. Absorb the natural beauty of the ruins of the 16th century medieval town at Kastro. For stunning views of the archipelago, venture to Bo├║rtzi, a small peninsula that divides the port, to explore the ruins of the Venetian fortress established in 1207.
Volos, Greece - Volos is gateway to Thessaly and one of the most bizarre sights you will ever see. The meteora rise in giant spiky, pillars from the plain. Amazingly, the rocky crags are populated by a monastic order who make their homes in caves in the cliffs.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
