DAY 6 – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11: START OUR 3-NIGHT AEGEAN/MEDITERRANEAN SEA CRUISE – MYKONO
Today we set sail on our Aegean & Mediterranean cruise! The skies were overcast today (unlike the forecast of sun), with highs in the 70s. It would be a day of sailing past the many Greek islands!
Wake-up call was a bit later today (7:30 am). We enjoyed a deluxe breakfast was on the top floor of the hotel, giving us an amazing view of the Acropolis and Parthenon. Then, we tagged our bags for the cruise boat and loaded the bus for the drive to Piraeus, Athen’s port. Following the standard procedures of boarding the ship and life-jacket check, the ship pulled out of the port and we began our cruise towards the island of Mykonos.
“Our Greek cruise started today! So very fun to be on a big ship. We explored one island today, Myconos. It was so incredibly beautiful! I love the Greek culture!” -Tour Member-
We arrive at the island of Mykonos in the late afternoon. We disembarked the ship and then took shuttle buses towards the main part of the harbor. We then strolled through the maze of walkways and white-washed buildings before arriving at the windmill area. We enjoyed the waterfront (called Little Venus) lined with shops and cafes. Some in the group enjoyed dinner at one of the many restaurants while others returned to the ship for dinner. While we sleep tonight we will travel to the western coastline of Turkey.
