Riviera Travel has launched a new one-off Star Clipper cruise for 2024 to the Greek islands and Ephesus in Turkey. The 10-night itinerary will depart on October 3, 2024.
The voyage will call at Delos and Mykonos, Kusadasi (for Ephesus), Rhodes, Kos, Amorgos and Poros, and is on sale now.
Alongside the seven-night Clipper sailing, the itinerary includes a three-night stay in a hotel in Athens.
The stay features a tour of Athens with a visit to the Acropolis, a tour to ancient Corinth, and a tour of Cape Sounion with a visit to the Temple of Poseidon.
The 16-sail Star Clipper is a reconstruction of a 19th-century, four-masted vessel. It combines age-old design with state-of-the-art safety features and luxury onboard facilities.
The ship has 83 cabins and accommodates up to 166 guests and 74 crew. It has two salt-water swimming pools, a sun deck, a restaurant, a tropical outside bar, a library and a lounge.
Katja Hildebrandt, Riviera Travel’s Head of Product River & Ocean Cruise, said:
“This unique adventure in the Aegean Sea allows our guests to combine the breathtaking natural beauty of the Greek islands with the fascinating archaeological sites of Athens and Ephesus.
“The Star Clipper offers the charm of sailing on a 19th-century style vessel with modern comforts and luxury, and with the expertise of a Riviera tour manager on hand, it really is the perfect blend of elegance, relaxation and exploration.”
Prices start at £2499pp with return flights from regional airports; full breakfast, buffet lunch, afternoon tea and an à la carte dinner while on-board; hotel breakfasts; and an experienced Riviera Travel tour manager throughout.
