Although still in the same part of the world, our Eastern Mediterranean cruises are vastly different from those that we offer in the Western Mediterranean. The weather is still fantastic and ports of call are still as exciting and intriguing as ever, but the cultures and traditions that you will find in places such as Greece and Turkey vary to those elsewhere in Europe.

As you sail through the transparent Aegean Sea, stopping off at various islands along the way, you will find yourself eagerly anticipating the revelation of where you wake up every morning. Let the glorious Star Clipper do all the hard work as you lay back and enjoy the excellent atmosphere on board and discover what new adventures await at your next port of call.

PORTS OF CALL INCLUDE:

Valletta, Malta

Mykonos, Greece

Kos, Greece

Istanbul, Turkey

Skiathos, Greece

Skopelos, Greece

Canakkale, Turkey

Hvar, Croatia

Katakolon, Greece

Star Clipper Ports of Call

 Saturday, 28 May 2022    Athens, Greece

Walking in the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle arguing about who was the greatest philosopher. Ancient Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, is a city for all eternity.

 Sunday, 29 May 2022    Hydra, Greece

Hydra is a town of stately mansions all built around 1800 by blockade runners who had made fortunes outwitting the British during the Napoleonic Wars. As there are no cars, for the spectacular view from the Monastery of Ilias you'll have to ride a donkey to the top.

 Monday, 30 May 2022    Monemvasia, Greece

From the shore, it's a big rock sticking out into the sea. Then you pass over the causeway, and through an iron fortress gate, and suddenly, the town of Monemvasia is before you, a perfectly preserved Byzantine fortified port, once 60,000 strong, now home to just a few hundred. You can readily see why the name Monemvasia means single entrance! In the rocky hills above, ancient Byzantine ruins loom over the town, while below a maze of red tiled roofs and twisting alleys hide tavernas and cafes and the home of revered Greek poet Yannis Ritsos.

 Tuesday, 31 May 2022    Pilos, Greece

Homer's Wise King Nestor was very wise indeed to build his magnificent palace near Pilos. For the city's harbour of Navarino Bay and the land-locked lake that was the original harbour were a perfect refuge from storms and invaders. And it was at this site on October 20, 1827, with the help of Britain, Russia and France, that modern Greece attained independence, defeating the Turkish navy in the Battle of Navarino Bay.

 Wednesday, 01 June 2022    Levkas, Greece

Lefkada's name means "white," from the famous white cliffs of Cape Lefkata, site of an ancient temple of Apollo, You can also explore deserted monasteries in the mountains, splash around under the Nidri waterfalls. Take a break in one of the famous fish tavernas in Nidri but make you also sample Delimari salami, it’s the islands favourite.

 Thursday, 02 June 2022    At sea

Each Star Clippers ship offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship. Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges, a revitalising spa (Royal Clipper only) and a peaceful library.

 Friday, 03 June 2022    Lipari - Aeolian Islands, Italy

Italy's seven volcanic Aeolian Islands, just off the north coast of Sicily, are obviously a place favored by the Gods. In Lipari, climb narrow streets to the medieval castello and enjoy a secluded beach. As Royal Clipper sails past Isola Strómboli, watch the sky for frequent volcanic fireworks.

 Saturday, 04 June 2022    Sorrento, Italy

Sorrento, whose city walls rise straight out of the sea, is located on the lovely Amalfi Coast and overlooks the Bay of Naples. Optional excursions might include taking a trip back in history to Pompeii, where the ashen remains of ancient Romans lie frozen in time.

 Sunday, 05 June 2022    Ponza - Pontine Islands, Italy

The pastel houses of Ponza Town rise in neat terraced rows from the busy harbour where sleekly groomed yachts and ramshackle fishing boats moor side by side. Happily, there are few tourists here, so it's a delight to wander through the unspoiled town.

 Sunday, 05 June 2022    Palmarola, Italy

Palmarola is a snorkelling heaven that is part of a group called The Pontine Islands, located off the coast between Rome and Naples. A craggy landscape with pink coral beaches and emerald coves beckons so don't forget your swimsuit and flippers. Totally unique, isolated and stunning.

 Monday, 06 June 2022    Civitavecchia (Port for Rome), Italy

St. Peter's, with its breathtaking Sistine Chapel, newly restored to its former glory- the Spanish Steps, where all Rome passes by- the Colosseum, where gladiators fought to the death, and the Pantheon, considered to be the most perfect architectural statement of the ages.
