NEW for Summer 2023 Set Sail for a Journey of a Lifetime with Olympic Holidays

Thursday, May 04, 2023 0


Explore the beautiful Greek Islands of Santorini, Mykonos and across to the stunning shores of Turkey with Olympic Holidays as they launch inaugural cruise product.


This summer, set sail for a journey of a lifetime with Olympic Holidays and one of their brand-new cruise itineraries. Twin Athens and a 3 or 4 day cruise to Greece and Turkey and discover the history of the islands, iconic landmarks, take in breath-taking landscapes, enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle and sample delectable and authentic cuisine.


On the launch of the new cruise offerings, Michael Vinales, MD Olympic Holidays comments ‘Following the successful launch and huge appetite we’re seeing for our Island-Hopping experiences, our two new cruise itineraries offer guests an alternative way to set sail and explore. Everything is tailormade allowing guests to set their own pace either side of the cruise. With bespoke itineraries to accommodate varying requests around length of stay and budget, all guests have the option to extend their stay in Athens or add on another island or two. Dipping our toes into the cruise market and offering this type of experience was the next logical step for us. Not only is it great to expand our portfolio but goes further to cement our place in the marketplace as the experts in creating bespoke holiday island experiences.’


The 3-day cruise starts in Athens where guests will set sail to Santorini and have the chance to explore the charming villages and take in the breath-taking views of the famous Caldera. Next, it’s off to Mykonos, known for its vibrant nightlife, luxury boutiques, and historic town centre. The longer 4-day cruise will follow the same initial route but also take in Rhodes where guests can explore the island’s ancient history and beautiful beaches, and visit the old town with its medieval walls, Palace of the Grandmaster, and Lindos beach. To conclude, guests on both itineraries will arrive at the hidden gem of Cesme on Turkey’s Aegean coast, where they can soak up the sun on golden sandy beaches and explore the magnificent castle built by the Genoese. As the cruise heads back to Athens, there’s no doubt guests will return with unforgettable memories of this special island-hopping adventure.


So, get booking, pack your bags, leave your worries behind, and indulge in the ultimate escape!
