The ultra-luxury cruise line, Silversea has chosen its newest flagship, the Silver Moon, to kick off this summer season of sailing in the Mediterranean. Offering an abundance of space, yet maintaining Silversea's famous small-ship experience, Silver Moon is the ideal ship to bring cruising back to the brand's loyal followers as well as anyone wanting to enjoy their intimate and exclusive on board atmosphere. Carrying a maximum of 596 guests in less than 300 luxurious suites on board, the ship features eight dining options, spacious indoor and outdoor areas and an almost 1:1 crew to guest ratio to make this all-inclusive cruise experience the perfect option for this year’s Greek Isles explorations.
The Mediterranean is synonymous with the pleasures of the table. From the seafood bounty of the coast to its sunbaked lands flowing with olive oil and wine, the region is world-famous for canonical dishes and advancements on the frontiers of gastronomy. Introducing S.A.L.T (Sea and Land Taste), Silversea is looking to bring you beyond the typical tourist fare to help you understand the food and traditions of the region and to connect deeply with the rich heritage of each and every destination you visit. All accompanied, of course, by cocktails, spirits, wine and other locally-inspired drinks.
Bursting with individual character and specific appeal, Greece is the ideal destination. With each island so distinctly different from its neighbour, it is only by hopping from one picture perfect place to the next that you can truly comprehend this wonderful country. Swapping the bohemian glamour of Mykonos for the history of Rhodes and the blue domed roofs of Santorini for Nafplion’s elegant squares, you begin to see why Greece still makes waves when it comes to cruising the Med.
Each one of the fifteen available 2021 Greek odysseys, which range from quick 7- day getaways to 20 - wonderful day long journeys, starts and ends in Athens (port of Piraeus), allowing you to extend your stay in this extraordinary 2,500 - year old Greek capital.
The majestic ancient citadel of the Acropolis dominates an elevated platform and is a constant presence as you explore the city. The wonderful remains of the columned temple of the Parthenon - which date back to the 5th century BC - stand here, representing the pinnacle of classical architecture. The nearby Acropolis Museum adds context to your visit and frames the broad views from its giant glass windows. Or rise up Mount Lycabettus, to be rewarded with perhaps Athens' best panorama of the Acropolis sitting high over the city on its grand stage. See the marble horseshoe of the Old Olympic Stadium, where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896, for more of the city's enduring legacy.
Coffee is an art form to the Greeks, and it's an unwritten rule that coffee time must never be rushed. So prepare to settle down for a couple of hours and lose yourself in a good chat while planning your next Greek adventure.
