A scenic Cyclades excursion, with stops in some of Greece's most iconic destinations – includes all meals

Glide through the gorgeous Cyclades aboard an exquisite ship on the Aegean Sea. With its clear blue waters and breathtaking vistas, this unique collection of islets is a dream destination, but difficult to reach in certain areas – unless, of course, you’re aboard a yacht. On Running on Waves’ sophisticated cruise, you’ll travel like a VIP, visiting eight spectacular ports in as many days. You’ll start in Athens and finish in Nafplio, with six island stops along the way: Milos, with its three glittering bays; Santorini; Mykonos; and Delos – the mythical birthplace of Apollos – to name a few.

Aptly called a mega-yacht, your prestigious vessel is equipped with ultra-modern facilities and spacious staterooms. Dining is an elegant and enticing highlight, with Mediterranean-inspired meals prepared fresh each day by a renowned chef. But beyond the bountiful comforts on board, adventure awaits at each port of call. From the snow-white houses of the Santorini cliffs to the white-sand beaches of Ios and Paros, you'll experience what makes the magnificent Greek Aegean one of the world's most enticing destinations.
