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
