Day 1: Piraeus

Embarkation on Resilient Lady. The ship departs from Piraeus port at 18:00

2

Day 2: Santorini

The ship arrives at Santorini port at 09.00 and departs at 21.00

Blue domes, windmills and white buildings sloping down a volcanic mountainside — yes, this is *that* postcard-worthy island.

Though Thera is more than just a pretty face — she’s got personality for days. Go through the storied past when island hopping the coast by boat or kayak, take in the modern seafaring culture at a private beach club or immerse yourself in the natural world surrounding it by hiking through volcanic trails and hot springs. 

The most surprising part of Thera happens to be what sets it apart from other Greek Isles – Santorian cuisine. Family-run distilleries feature bold ouzo infusions found exclusively on the Cycladic islands: wineries and vineyards that have produced incredible blends derived from 100 unique grape varietals for thousands of years paired with traditional recipes of mouthwatering multi-course dishes make Santorini a destination to save room for. 

In addition to the unbelievable culinary vista, it’s hard not to find romance in Thera. Sparks will fly on a sunset sail where dinner is served. Hidden enclaves surrounded by candlelight make for a fairytale day-to-night date, and a helicopter ride will make you feel like you’re experiencing something you’ve only seen on  reality television.

Day 3: Rhodes

The ship arrives at Rhodes port at 09.00 and departs at 18.00

Historically, Rhodes is celebrated for being the home of one of the most remarkable of the seven wonders of the world, the Colossus of Rhodes – while in the current landscape it’s become one of the most sought after locations for those who actively search social media with the #takemethere. Travelers everywhere have Rhodes on their vision boards because of its bountiful beauty, inspired cuisine, historical significance and a little something we just can’t seem to put our finger on.

With a past sprinkled with legends, (Hercules established one of the first ancient settlements on this very land) the modern scene is just as enticing – and you don’t have to be as strong as Hercules to enjoy all it has to offer. Offroading, rappelling and stand-up paddleboarding allow you to dive into the excitement of Rhodes’ past while immersing yourself in the thrills of its abundant landscape. For the more antiquity at heart, an impressive array of churches, mosques and synagogues offer a fascinating culture caper. 

Of course no Greek isle is complete without the meat (and vegetables, seafood and libations) which are, simply put – out of this world. Traditional dishes with inspired twists from modern Grecian chefs at new and exciting restaurants blend together with classic taverna’s with a “if it’s not broke, why fix it” mentality to guarantee visitors a taste of the old, a taste of the new – and most importantly, a taste of everything in between.

Day 4: Bodrum

The ship arrives at Bodrum port at 08:00 and departs at 20:00

A remixed melody of traditional echoes
Some words don’t translate well from one language to another – a perfect example of this is the word keyif. Pronounced “kayfe,” roughly translated it means “the pursuit of idyllic pleasure” or “to do nothing happily” but – as Bodrum locals will tell you, the best way to translate keyif is simply just – vibes. 

Bodrum is the ideal location to live out all your keyif fantasies. Spend the day at one of its idyllic top-rated beach resorts or gaze out the window on the short drive to the nomadic village of Etrim – where notoriously warm locals are eager to share their homemade wine and carpet weaving abilities. 

However, Bodrum has so much more to offer than perfectly designed cuisine and instagram-worthy beauty. Dripping with a history richer than one of its homemade baklavas, Bodrum has something to offer everyone – especially the forever adventurer at heart. 

Originally built as a gothic style fortress, the legendary Bodrum Castle came under the rule of the Ottoman Empire until after WWI when it was vacated and left vacant for nearly 40 years. Now serving as one of the world’s premier archaeological museums it houses a (literal) treasure trove of artifacts pulled from sunken ships and wreckage sites dating back to the Bronze age. Continue your adventure and make your way to Bodrum Castle’s neighbor, The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus – one of the seven wonders of the world. 

Whether in search of a history lesson unlike any other, an over the top underwater adventure, phenomenal cuisine or to simply lay out on one of the best beaches the world has to offer, in Bodrum the only thing you have to worry about – is keyif.

Day 5: At sea

Day at your leisure to enjoy the facilities and entertainment of the Resilient Lady. 

6

Day 6: Mykonos

The ship arrives at Mykonos port at 09.00 and overnights. 

Beach umbrellas peppering an eternal coastline, a pelican population just as teeming as its local fishermen and copious shades of blue in all directions, Mykonos just has that – je ne sais quoi.

Travel beyond the Mykonos that you’ve seen on your screen and lose yourself within the labyrinth of whitewashed building lined streets – accented, of course, by blue, green or red doors and handrails (and you thought your homeowner’s association was strict.) Beauty is synonymous with Mykonos, and the only thing more beautiful than its aesthetic is its people and its acclaimed nightlife. 

Less than a century ago, Mykonos was most well-known as a trading port and the site of a slew of historic wars, including the battle between Zeus and the Titans. The 1950s entered into an era where artists, bohemians and chic jet setters started flocking to the island’s white sand beaches. Now, Mykonos is known as the epicenter of nightlife revelry. Two of the top 20 clubs in the world call Mykonos home, as well as dozens of other fabulous nighttime watering holes whose colored doors only close when the sun comes up. 

With an average of over 300 sunny days a year, it’s an obvious utopian isle for travelers looking to indulge. Spend the day laying in the sun on a luxe lounger. Discover hidden enclaves while off roading in a 4x4, or island hop the stunning coast. Wander the bar-lined cobblestone streets of Little Venice on foot or indulge in some of the best food Greece has to offer –  no matter how you choose to enjoy your time in Mykonos, the only emotion you’ll never feel – is guilt.

7

Day 7: Mykonos

The ship departs from Mykonos port at 14.00

Aegean Blues and Catamaran Views
Get your day started on the right foot (or fin) with this catamaran cruise across the Aegean. You’ll swim and snorkel in the waters around Rhenia and Delos, two uninhabited isles off the coast of Mykonos, known as the "Cycladic Sisters." Enjoy a lunch of local specialties on deck to refuel after swimming. You'll head back to port dazzled by the region's ancient, mythology-steeped landscapes and the hypnotic blues of its sea and sky.
