Making your way anticlockwise around the Cyclades, the islands offer countless choices. You can enjoy privacy in the unpopulated islets with secret bays or the cosmopolitan islands with chic beach clubs and first-class restaurants. Sophisticated and relaxed, Sifnos is like a small piece of chic Caribbean, while Milos has an excess of sandy inlets only accessible by boat. Folegandros is known as the “island of peace” because of its relaxing atmosphere, and Santorini’s satellite islands envelop visitors with peace and tranquility. Mykonos and Santorini are famous for their plethora of hip bars and restaurants, but there is more to these cosmopolitan islands than their hedonistic party vibe. And finally, come you’ll come full circle and discover the sacred grounds of Delos. A moving experience to end your cruise through these varied cruising grounds.
