You’ll also enjoy a 7-night cruise on the Aegean Sea cruising to some of the world’s most beautiful islands. You’ll visit Mykonos, Greece’s most famous jet-set island with its seafront village, sandy beaches, and whitewashed houses; Milos, the “Island of Colors”; Santorini (weather permitting), still an active volcano offering one of the world’s most breathtaking panoramas; Heraklion on Crete; plus Kusadasi and Ephesus in Turkey.
