What to Expect
After pickup in central Athens or your Athens hotel by air-conditioned coach (depending on option selected), head for Piraeus port. Relax as you cruise to Poros, taking time on route to either sign up for tours on Egina (Aegina) or Hydra (both own expense) or decide to explore independently. If you’ve upgraded, enjoy extra-comfortable transportation, private check-in, VIP lounges in port and onboard, a welcome drink, buffet lunch in a VIP dining room, Wi-Fi, and access to the ship’s sun deck. At Poros, get free time to enjoy the tavernas, shops, and other attractions. After lunch on board, cruise to Hydra and Egina. Dock at each island to stroll and shop independently, or take the optional Hydra walking tour or Egina bus tour (both at your own expense) to the classical Temple of Aphaia. Finally, enjoy an onboard folklore show as you cruise back to Athens for drop-off at your departure point.

Maybe if we hadn’t done another cruise two days earlier that was better than perfect, this cruise would’ve been better. Overcrowded ship didn’t help. The real killer was the cruise to only one island and a repeat island at that. Spend your money elsewhere.

The boat was so full that some passengers just sat on benches, elbow to elbow. It was a very unpleasant experience.

We were picked up at our hotel on time. Taken to the boat. The crew was enthusiastic and polite. The VIP service was worth it with plenty of snacks, drinks and a delicious lunch. The bus tour at the end was just right.

Great cruise to the 3 islands. Well organised despite there being loads of people in general. Lunch on board was surprisingly delicious. Definitely recommend this tour and taking the optional tours offered on the islands.

11 hours boat ride and about 2 hours on the 3 Islands. I didn't feel really sample and enjoy the Islands as we had a timeline to return to the boat.

Well, the hotel we stayed in called them up and they asked us to meet outside this other hotel which we did. The meeting place was quite close to our hotel and they picked us up from there. Another option is to see which... More

Yes there is. I think we were picked up at A for Athens, which is right at that location.
