Best Greece cruises: Top 5 ships sailing the Greek isles

Ashley Kosciolek

From ancient mythology to wine and olives, there's a lot to love about Greece . There's something magical about the contrast between the deep-blue waters of the Aegean Sea and the ancient ruins and white buildings found on the Greek islands.

The best Greece cruises are those that offer a well-rounded mix of islands and key Greece destinations: Athens for its ruins, Santorini for its blue-roofed churches, Mykonos for its shopping and nightlife, and Rhodes for its palace and charming cobblestone streets. You might even luck out and snag a visit to places like Turkey or Montenegro, too.

If you're not sure which ships to consider, here's a list of the best cruises to Greece for different kinds of travelers.

Best Greek isles cruises for families: Disney Dream

greece cruise deals 2024

Disney Cruise Line is ideal for families. If a Disney cruise to Greece with kids sounds appealing, Disney Dream is the ship that will take you there.

The vessel is not the line's newest, but it's also not the oldest, so you'll still find plenty to do on board. The 2,500-passenger ship's small size means it's easy to learn your way around. Even better, Disney Dream is typically more affordable than the line's newer vessels.

Your children likely won't be bored on the ship. Dream offers jaw-dropping entertainment and daily character appearances. Its magical kids clubs feature a replica of Andy's room from "Toy Story" and the Millennium Falcon's cockpit from "Star Wars." (Expect surprise visits from R2-D2 or a squad of stormtroopers.)

Also, Greece is wrapped in tons of ancient history to spark your family's imagination. For example, in Athens, your family might choose to take a guided tour of the Acropolis, followed by a "day in the life of an archeologist" experience, where you'll search for treasures in a faux archeological dig.

If the kids prefer something sportier, they might enjoy an excursion that takes visitors to the Panathenaic Stadium for a tour and a talk about the first Olympic games of the modern era.

Disney Dream sails eight-, nine- and 11-night voyages from $416 per person, per night, for a windowless inside cabin. Some itineraries sail round-trip from Rome, while others cruise one-way between Rome and Barcelona with calls on Athens, Mykonos and other ports in Greece.

Best adults-only Greece cruises for party animals: Resilient Lady

greece cruise deals 2024

If you enjoy a lively megaship party atmosphere but you don't want an environment that's overrun with kids, Virgin Voyages ' Resilient Lady will likely be the best Greece cruise option for you.

Although Virgin's Greece itineraries are pretty standard, its onboard experience is what sets it apart in the region.

The adults-only ship combines a casual vibe with a ramped-up nightlife. You'll find passengers dressed up like mermaids, crew dressed up like drag queens and performers that more accurately represent a cross-section of real life than those whom you'll find on most other lines' vessels.

Nighttime shows run the gamut from lounge singers and seemingly impromptu atrium dance parties to secret below-deck visits to the "crew bar" for a tipple. There's also Scarlet Night — a rave-like pool-deck dance party where everyone wears red.

If that's not wild enough for you, there's also an app that lets you order Champagne to wherever you are on board, free fitness classes that encourage you to dress up in your '80s best and even a tattoo parlor so you can make some bad decisions.

Resilient Lady sails seven-, 10- and 14-night cruises, starting at $148 per person, per night, for an inside cabin. The voyages feature stops in Croatia, Turkey and Montenegro, in addition to Greece (Santorini, Rhodes and overnight in Mykonos from Athens), depending on the specific itinerary you choose.

Best budget-friendly Greece cruises: Rhapsody of the Seas

greece cruise deals 2024

Want to check out Greece but have limited funds? Although you'll have to factor in potentially expensive flights to Israel to board, a voyage on Royal Caribbean 's Rhapsody of the Seas could be right up your alley.

The ship is one of Royal Caribbean's older ships — it debuted in 1997 — but that doesn't mean you won't find fun onboard activities such as trivia, pool games, nightly theater performances, game shows, dancing and live music.

The best part if you're on a budget is the price. You can snag sailings of five or seven nights, round-trip from Haifa, from just $65 per person, per night, for an inside cabin. Voyages include calls to ports in Rhodes, Athens, Santorini and Mykonos, as well as Cyprus.

Best small-ship luxury Greece cruises: Windstar's Wind Star

greece cruise deals 2024

Windstar Cruises ' namesake, Wind Star, is a 148-passenger masted sailing yacht that offers a special Greek islands experience.

The ship is great for sailing aficionados. Because of its small size, the ship can visit smaller ports that larger vessels can't access. (Think Patmos, known to theology buffs as the place where the book of Revelation was written; Monemvasia, a town carved into rock; and Nafplion, modern Greece's original capital and now the site of museums, churches and castles.)

Also, Wind Star is an upscale ship, which means you'll find elevated dining and service on board. All cabins offer at least one window. When you purchase an all-inclusive fare, Wi-Fi, gratuities and alcohol are rolled into the price.

The vessel sails weeklong Greece cruises round-trip from Athens and calls on Mykonos, Santorini, Patmos, Monemvasia and Nafplion in Greece, as well as Kusadasi in Turkey. Rates start from $500 per person, per night, for an outside cabin.

Best locally based Greek isles cruises: Celestyal Journey

greece cruise deals 2024

Celestyal Cruises is a line you don't hear about too often, but it's based in Greece, which means it has a unique perspective on Greek island sailings.

If you're looking for a cruise vacation that's full of local Greek flare, check out the brand's Celestyal Journey. Set to debut for the line in September 2023, the ship isn't new, but following an extensive refurbishment, it will become the youngest member of the line's fleet.

Holding about 1,200 passengers, Celestyal Journey is small enough that you'll still receive a personalized experience but large enough to offer a multitude of onboard amenities. Enjoy yourself at the spa and fitness center, eight bars, seven restaurants, a chef's table experience and two pools. The ship offers 630 cabins, including 149 balcony cabins, 120 junior suites and 28 full-fledged suite accommodations.

Itineraries offered by Celestyal Journey range from four to 28 nights, departing from either Athens or Thessaloniki. Most voyages include calls on well-known Greek ports like Santorini, Rhodes and Mykonos, while longer sailings also venture to places in Turkey and Montenegro. Pricing is not yet available.

Bottom line

The best cruises to Greece combine a mix of fascinating destinations with a ship that fits your budget and travel style. If you're still unsure which cruise to choose, check with a knowledgeable cruise travel agent who can help you sort through the options.

Greek Isle Beauty

Explore greek isle ports.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

Step back in time on your cruise to Greece. Visit the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, and other ancient ruins. Follow your tour with an open-air dinner in the Plaka neighborhood.

Crete (Souda), Greece

On the northwest coast of the island of Crete, Souda beckons with a romantic Venetian harbor, Old Town’s tangle of streets, and a 500-year-old lighthouse.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

The region reveals what it means to be Greek: traditions that go back thousands of years, simple but delicious and healthy cuisine, towering mountains, and crystal blue seas.

Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos is a top choice among the glamourous. Chic tavernas with open terraces line the sea and after the sun dips down, the island sizzles with youthful energy.

Kerkira (Corfu), Greece

Come ashore to Corfu on your Greek Islands cruise, a muse for some of history’s most notable writers. Be inspired with a swim in its azure waters or wander verdant, cypress-dotted hills.

Rhodes, Greece

Even without its immense Helios statue, Rhodes remains one of the most-visited Greek islands with its white-sand beaches, glittering coves and fascinating ruins.

Thira (Santorini), Greece

Santorini has a dizzying array of archeological treasures, sun-bleached villages and world-renowned wines. To top it all, it’s home to one of the most beautiful volcanic calderas in the world.

Gythion (Sparta), Greece

Once the port of ancient Sparta, this lovely fishing town draws its name from gi theon, which means “land of the gods” in Greek. It’s the entryway to the rugged, mountainous realm of the Spartans—the fiercely independent people who rejected foreign rule time and time again.

Kavala (Neapolis), Greece

Northern Greece is often overlooked as a Greek Isle cruise destination, and many will not even have heard of the Macedonian port of Kavála. But the city, and the region it opens into, are both picturesque and culturally important, with a history that encompasses classical times as well as the more modern era.

Mytilene, Nisos Lesbos

Lesbos, Greece is well known for olives and ouzo production, and visitors can see evidence of both everywhere. The island's charms extend beyond those pleasures, though: It’s a beautiful place of open plains, sweeping hills, and sandy beaches with views of Turkey across the water.

Pylos, Greece

Pine-covered hills wrap around the lovely town of Pylos (often referred to as Navarino, its Italian name), in the Messenia region of Greece's Peloponnese. Cobblestoned streets lead down to the harbor, where outdoor cafés overlook the bay. This pleasant scene, however, belies a turbulent history.

Romance and culture await on a Greek Island cruise

It’s no wonder the Greek Islands have always been a perennial favorite of travelers. Greece is a magical, romantic destination where you can wander alongside stunning coastlines, explore the ruins of ancient cultures, and dine on fresh Mediterranean cuisine all in one vacation.

On one of our luxury Greek Island cruises, explore far-flung beaches, drift out to sea on catamarans and kayaks, and duck into tiny tavernas where you can eat and drink like a local. From the sun-soaked stone buildings in Santorini to the white-sand beaches that beckon in Mykonos, a Greece cruise is the best way to experience the captivating Greek Islands.

Greek Island Cruise Highlights

Once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

There is no shortage of unforgettable experiences to be had in Greece. Its seascapes and cityscapes are wondrous, from the mighty ruins of the Acropolis to the buzzing, modern city center of Athens. Visit an olive farm in Crete, or embark on a tour of Mykonos Town’s organic wineries. Or, take an intimate, exclusive cooking lesson on how to make local favorites in Santorini’s main square, right in the middle of it all.

Ancient History

Greece is a world-renowned destination for history buffs. Stroll through the Acropolis and marvel at human achievement, or visit the Museum of Cycladic Art to study Aegean and Cypriot artifacts. Examine the 400-year-old remains of a town buried under volcanic ash outside of Santorini. Explore the historic forts of Corfu, or hop on a boat ride to Delos, said to be the birthplace of Apollo.

Natural Wonders

Discover Elafonisi Beach, a paradise of pink, powdery sand and shallow waters off the island of Crete. Take an unforgettable cruise through the impressive Corinth Canal on a shore excursion in Athens. Stand in awe at the base of Mount Olympus, Greece’s highest mountain and the fabled home of the Greek gods. In Zakynthos, don’t miss a visit to the awe-inspiring Shipwreck Beach, which often tops best-of lists.

Featured Ports

Santorini, Greece

Travelers flock to Santorini for its cobalt-roofed homes, friendly locals, and fine local wine. On this crescent-shaped island, soak up the sun at black-sand beaches like Perissa, or spend a day at the Santorini Caldera, one of the only places in the world to see submerged remnants of an erupted volcano. Sample Greek wines at family-owned wineries dotting the Aegean coast, and take the time to marvel at the incredible panoramas all around you.

Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos is the quintessential Mediterranean beach destination. Choose your favorite to spend the day on, or book a sailing excursion to go beach hopping. Take a day trip beyond Mykonos to the nearby island of Delos, an uninhabited archeological site said to be the birthplace of Greek gods. Experience an authentic side of the island with a home-cooking class, where you’ll sample and prepare delicious local specialties.

Athens, Greece

To visit the capital of Greece is to take a trip back in time, whether you’re exploring the narrow streets of the Plaka District or hiking the Acropolis for well-earned views of the Parthenon. After a day of exploration, pop into a taverna for Mediterranean meze and a cold beer.

Greek Island Cruise Itineraries

Explore the wonders of Greece on 10- to 12-night itineraries from May to October. Along with ports of call in the country’s best destinations, our cruises to Greece also include stops in Turkey, Italy, Malta, and beyond. You’ll depart from Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, making it easy to extend your vacation in one of these stunning cities before or after your cruise.

Not only do we offer the best way to explore Europe, but we also make it easy to get there with Flights by Celebrity℠. Relax knowing you’re booking the lowest airfare and have a dedicated team helping you get to your ship—and back.

Your vacation begins the moment you step on board. Discover the unparalleled service, delectable culinary creations, innovative venues, thrilling performances, and indulgent wellness treatments that take your vacation from good to extraordinary. You’ve never seen Greece like this before.

Wave season cruise deals 2024: Book early and save big on your next sailing

H appy New Year! With the dawn of another trip around the sun, it's time to start thinking about your travels for 2024. Cruise lines are rolling out a host of enticing wave season deals for passengers looking to get a jump on their vacation planning.

What's wave season , you ask? It's the time, typically in the first quarter of each new year, when cold winter weather in many parts of the U.S. has potential cruisers dreaming of warmer climates. Cruise lines have taken note, luring travelers with discounted fares and inclusions like free Wi-Fi, drinks and more.

If you missed out on Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, here's a roundup of the lines' latest offers.

For more cruise guides, news, reviews and tips, sign up for TPG's cruise newsletter .

AmaWaterways

Enjoy deep discounts on river cruises in summer 2024 with this wave season offer from AmaWaterways. Take $2,000 off per cabin for voyages of seven to 11 nights or $4,000 per cabin for sailings of 14 nights or longer. The deal also includes complimentary cabin upgrades and up to $100 per cabin in onboard credit, depending on the length of the cruise.

This promotion is valid on select sailings in July and August and can be combined with the line's fixed-price economy airfare offer. Also, available for select Europe river sailings in 2024 and 2025, you can score a free pre- or post-cruise land add-on of up to four days for free . Be sure to book both of these offers by March 31.

American Cruise Lines

American Cruise Lines , which specializes in river cruises and coastal sailings along U.S. waterways, is extending a special wave season promotion to potential cruisers. Until further notice, book select 2024 Historic Mississippi River itineraries, round trip from New Orleans. You'll save up to $1,500 on fares and be entitled to free domestic airfare.

Atlas Ocean Voyages

Through Feb. 3, Atlas Ocean Voyages has launched a January Savings Event . It combines the line's existing "second passenger sails free" promotion with $2,000 in savings on fares and up to four free shore excursions on select voyages throughout 2024. Check out this relatively new small-ship cruise line to explore remote locations like Antarctica, the Arctic and more on luxurious and intimate vessels with fewer than 200 passengers.

Avalon Waterways

For more river cruise savings in the new year, check out Avalon Waterways' Suite Dreams Sales Event , which grants travelers up to $500 per cabin ($250 per person) in savings on select 2024 European voyages. Or, snag free airfare on select sailings. These promotions are available to book through March 2 for voyages departing through Dec. 31.

This wave season, Azamara is giving cruisers up to $2,000 off sailings , per cabin, when they book voyages departing between April 1 and Dec. 31. With a penchant for extended port stays and AzAmazing evenings that connect passengers with authentic local performances, Azamara is a great way to experience destinations in small-ship style. Book by March 21.

Carnival Cruise Line

As part of its current promotion, which runs through Jan. 21, Carnival is offering up to 35% off cruise fares and reduced deposits of 50% per person. This offer also includes up to $100 per cabin in onboard credit and a complimentary cabin upgrade on select voyages setting sail through April 2026.

Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity cruisers will rake in savings of 75% on cruise fares for a second passenger during the line's Semi-Annual Sale . This offer is valid on voyages departing through April 30, 2026. The promotion applies only to nonrefundable fares. (Passengers booking refundable fares will save 50% on the second person in the same cabin.) The offer does not apply to Alaska cruisetours or Galapagos sailings.

Celestyal Cruises

Two-ship Greek cruise operator Celestyal is also in the wave season game this year, offering 50% off select cruise fares and 70% off fares for kids sharing a cabin with two paying adults. Cruising by yourself? The line is also extending savings on single supplements, which are only 30% for a limited time. Take advantage of these promotions by Feb. 29.

Through Jan. 31, book a sailing with Crystal and receive a free upgrade up to three categories — from an Aquamarine Veranda Suite to a Sapphire Veranda Suite or from a Double Guest Room with Veranda to an Aquamarine Veranda Suite — for all departures in 2024 as part of the line's "Suite Dreams" promotion .

Also, when you reserve a cabin for a sailing that's 10 days or longer, you'll snag complimentary dry-cleaning for up to five pieces of clothing, a bag of laundry for every 10 days and pressing for up to five pieces of clothing every three days.

Disney Cruise Line

Although this isn't exactly a sale, Disney Cruise Line — which rarely offers promotions of any kind — is taking half off the amount of money you'll have to pay upfront when you book a sailing with the line. This offer is valid on select cruises, for which final payment is not immediately due, departing between June 17, 2024, and May 31, 2025. Book by Feb. 16, and your deposit will be reduced by 50% .

If discounted fares are what you're seeking, check out the line's reduced-price voyages , which include 30% off voyages departing from Sydney; 25% off sailings leaving out of Fort Lauderdale and Southampton in the United Kingdom; and 20% off departures from Port Canaveral near Orlando.

Explora Journeys

Through Jan. 31, save up to 40% on select cabin categories on select voyages departing through April 2026 with the new luxury cruise line Explora Journeys. With the brand's "Total Luxury Offer," you'll also enjoy onboard credit of up to 400 euros (about $438) per cabin, plus a reduced deposit of just 10%.

Grand Circle Cruise Line

If you'd rather scrap the perks in favor of straight-up savings, Grand Circle is offering $750 off all 2024 voyages when you book a cabin by Feb. 2. Call the line at 800-221-2610, and mention code "SAVE2024" to make reservations. This river cruise operator is a great choice for solo cruisers since its ships offer smaller cabin sizes and prices designed for one person.

Holland America

With its "Time of Your Life" wave season offer, Holland America is extending discounts of up to 40% on cruise fares. The line is also tossing in free cabin upgrades (inside to ocean-view or ocean-view to balcony), reduced deposits and free kids fares (when children are the third and fourth passengers in a cabin with two paying adults). This offer is available through Feb. 29, but travelers who book by Jan. 31 will also receive up to $400 per room in onboard credit, depending on cabin category.

HX (Hurtigruten Expeditions)

To kick off its new rebrand as HX, Hurtigruten Expeditions is offering up to $2,000 in flight credits (depending on itinerary) for passengers who book by Jan. 31 for an expedition cruise departing between March 29, 2024, and March 30, 2025. You'll also enjoy an additional 10% savings if you're a member of the line's Ambassador loyalty program. Choose from bucket-list destinations such as the Galapagos, Alaska and Antarctica.

Margaritaville at Sea

Whether you're a Jimmy Buffett fan or you just want a short, inexpensive getaway, Margaritaville at Sea provides a cheap and cheerful cruise experience from the Port of Palm Beach to Freeport in the Bahamas on Paradise or from Tampa to Key West, Florida, and Cozumel and Progreso in Mexico on Islander.

During the line's wave season promotion, which runs through Feb. 12, you can snag up to three free cruise fares when you buy one. Just purchase one full fare for a sailing departing on or before Dec. 30, and the second, third and fourth passengers sail free when staying in the same cabin. This is also a great deal for solo cruisers, as the offer means there's no single supplement.

MSC Cruises

Looking for a big-ship cruise that offers tons of activities and dining options at affordable prices? MSC Cruises is providing passengers with up to 40% off cruise fares (depending on cabin type), free basic Wi-Fi and a basic drink package; it's also offering a "kids sail free" deal that will allow children younger than 18 to cruise for free as the third and fourth people in a cabin shared with two adults paying the full fare. This offer is available through Jan. 23.

Norwegian Cruise Line

This year, Norwegian has made its usual Free at Sea inclusions even more enticing. It has thrown in discounts of 50% on cruise fares through Jan. 19, plus $250 in CruiseFirst prepaid cruise credits to use toward booking a voyage. Cruisers who book under this promotion will also enjoy free basic Wi-Fi and alcohol packages, included alternative dining, shore excursions, third and fourth cruisers from just $99 when sharing a cabin with two full-fare paying passengers.

When you reserve your cabin under this promotion, you'll also receive up to $1,400 in shore excursion credit, depending on the cruise booked.

Overseas Adventure Travel (O.A.T.)

O.A.T. also routinely waives single supplements or deeply discounts them, making travel more affordable for solo cruisers.

Paul Gauguin Cruises

One-ship French Polynesia-based line Paul Gauguin Cruises is running its Take Your Sweetie to Tahiti offer, which doubles as both a Valentine's Day deal and a wave season promotion. When you book by Feb. 16, you'll enjoy up to $500 in onboard credit, per cabin, on select voyages ranging from seven to 14 nights.

Pearl Seas Cruises
