Greece and the Greek Islands is a wonderful cruising destination, with many cruises starting and ending in Athens and Venice, known as Eastern Mediterranean Cruises. But when you are looking at which cruise line and itinerary to go on your Greek Islands cruise vacation, make sure you are going to the best, most beautiful and interesting islands and ports. Many only go to a few and very busy ones, skipping some of the more appealing ones. In this video I recommend the best islands and ports you should make sure your cruise goes to and what to do on your day in port, including those the cruises often call on when starting or ending in Venice. These include Athens, Katakolon, Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, Patmos, Gythion, Corfu, Kotor and Dubrovnik.

Note: I travelled as a guest of Titan Travel on their Italian Lakes and Greek Islands cruise trip before making this video. Find out more about similar trips with them at

  1. Gythion isn't an island, is in the Peloponesse peninsula

  2. I went to Athens on my first cruise and loved the Acropolis, another stop off we went to was Santorini which is a beautiful island. Olympia is a must see and is stunning. Mykonos is a lovely island and is well known for being the location for Shirley Valentine and was great to see locations from the film.

  6. Great tips for visiting the historic sites and the beautiful island of Santorini. Mykonos and Kotor are both on our to do list but we have not heard of Patmos or Gythion so thanks for introducing some potential new ports. Really informative video.

  10. We did a trip way back in the late 1970's-early 1980's and we flew from NYC to Athens on Olympic Airlines and cruised the Greek Isles on Epirotiki Lines. It was an incredible trip. The Acropolis and Athens was an incredible journey. Thanks for posting.

  11. WOW, this is a Great Video. Seeing all the other islands really shows the beautiful history that surrounds the larger islands. I myself have always enjoyed exploring the areas most people may not know about. We tend to just visit the large cities and forget there is more to see.
