This incredible cruise with SeaDream transports you to some of the most sought-after destinations in Europe. From the enchanting canals of Venice to the epic history of Athens, stopping at Dubrovnik, Corfu, Mykonos and more, this is voyage unlike any other.

One of the highlights of this spellbinding cruise is meandering your way down the storied Corinth Canal. Seeming impassibly narrow, this dramatic stretch of water delivers everything SeaDream promises when they tell guests to “expect the unexpected”. A genuine marvel of history and engineering, the Roman Emperor Nero started construction in 67AD, making the first cut himself with a golden pick. Very few travellers get to see the Corinth Canal as most cruise ships are too wide to fit down the narrow pass! Travelling this route truly connects you with history, as well as providing incredible views along the way.

Award winning twin mega-yachts yachts SeaDream I & II are intimate boutique ships that provide a unique travelling experience at sea. Holding all the world-class facilities and docking in the same famous ports as larger cruising vessels, these smaller ships provide intimate service and make you feel as if you are on your own private yacht. With so many incredible cities marking out your route from Venice to Athens, you will want to make sure you’re making the most of each destination. Our Travel Specialists can tailor-make every element of your cruise, find your dream excursions, and make sure your next luxury cruise is a SeaDream come true.

Itinerary

Fly to Venice and transfer to Hotel Danieli, a Luxury Collection Hotel, for a 2-night pre-cruise hotel stay with breakfast. Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals" and traversing the enchanting waterways for yourself is breathtaking.
Founded in the 5th century, the city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic. In 1987 Venice and its Lagoon was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage site. The waterways of Venice are home to a host of chic shops, restaurants, and bars for you to explore.
Transfer to port to embark. SeaDream typically docks at the San Basilio pier after navigating by the famous St. Mark’s Square down the grand canal. With its yacht stature, SeaDream vessels are amongst the very few commercial vessels that can navigate this famous waterway!
Hvar is a picturesque Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. Its hillsides feature pine forests, vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields and the climate is characterized by mild winters and warm summers with many hours of sunshine - perfect for exploring!
Embrace nature and kayak down the coastline or take a hike up to the fortress for some incredible views of the picturesque harbour. You might even find yourself biking across the island to Starigrad with other guests on a special land and sea adventure called “The Best of Both Worlds".
Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is punctuated by an impressive city wall and several other traditional architectural masterpieces. The Bay of Kotor is a UNESCO Heritage Site and has stunning views.
Dubrovnik has featured in a whole host of TV and cinema blockbusters. From Game of Thrones to Star Wars, many major franchises have used the stunning architecture of old town Dubrovnik to transport viewers to another world.
Corfu is the second largest Greek island in the Ionian Sea and considered to be the most verdant. One of the most popular attractions on the island is the Achillion Palace – the enchanting summertime palace of Austria’s Empress Elizabeth!
You simply cannot visit Corfu without seeing its old town. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the charming old town has beautiful Venetian architecture, boutique dining and shopping and the Old Fortress, a sight worth seeing in its own right!
Myths say that Zeus wanted to find the centre of the Earth, so he sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities and where they met was Delphi. Your guided visit highlights the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, the Temple of Apollo, and the best kept amphitheatre in Greece.
Mykonos is one of the most visited Greek Islands and its easy to see why. Mykonos combines a cosmopolitan lifestyle, sophisticated nightlife, gourmet dining, stunning scenery, and fascinating history to create a destination that is not soon forgotten.
Milos Island is known as "the island of colours" as its volcanic origin has provided a range of beaches and waters with a variety of distinct colours. With more than beaches of crystal, deep blue waters, multi-coloured carved rocks and white-yellow coasts, Milos is perfect for a day soaking up the sun.
Disembark and transfer to luxurious Hotel Electra Palace Athens for a 2-night post-cruise hotel stay. Piraeus, roughly translating to “the place over the passage”, is an important Greek port a short distance from the enchanting history and architecture of Athens.
There are many archaeological sites, quaint tavernas, points of interest, entertainment, and events available in Piraeus in Athens. Be sure to catch the panoramic views available from the hill of Kastella, overlooking Athens and the Saronic Gulf!
Spend a morning taking in the history and heritage of Athens, perhaps enjoying world-famous sights like The Acropolis, The Parthenon, and The Temple of Poseidon. Then, transfer to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
