Day Date Port Arrive Depart
1 - Wednesday 14 October Istanbul 1700
It is often said that Istanbul is where east meets west, and there are numerous places of interest in the Old City, opposite the port. The highlights are the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia and the landmark of the city, the Blue Mosque, which is decorated with blue Iznik tiles and houses a market, public kitchen and theological school. The palace of the Ottoman Sultans, Topkapi, houses sacred Muslim relics including the Prophet Mohammed's cloak and sword.
2 - Thursday 15 October Mytilene (Lesbos, Greece) 0900 1800
Lesbos is Greece's third-largest island and lies just off the coast of Turkey, with its port adjacent to the town of Mytilene. There is a miniature version of the Statue of Liberty in the harbour, and the landscape is green and fertile. Sights include a Roman aqueduct, an interesting Petrified Forest created during a volcanic eruption, thermal springs and sea caves, and an excellent museum in Mytilene.
3 - Friday 16 October Kusadasi (Turkey) 0800 2000
The large port of Kusadasi is also a tourist resort, and has a lively nightlife, a long palm-lined boulevard and numerous sandy beaches offering watersports, including the best-known, Ladies Beach.

4 - Saturday 17 October Santorini (Greece) 0800 1800
The best way to arrive in Santorini is by sea, with spectacular views of the high caldera walls and the cliff-top town of Fira. Cruise ships berth in the old port, where the journey to the town is via donkey or cable car ' either option provides dramatic views of the Mediterranean and the volcanic island of Nea Kameni. Along the narrow alleys of the cliff-top are brilliant white and blue buildings, and the much-photographed church of Ag Mina.
5 - Sunday 18 October Piraeus (Athens, Greece) 0700 1800
Piraeus is 12 kilometers south-west of Athens and is the city's port. The port town itself has a long nautical history, as told in the Maritime Museum, and close to the port is the area of Piralki and its fish taverns. Walking beyond the peninsula, the coast is dotted with picturesque creeks. The hillside area of Kastella has narrow alleys, the church of Profitis Ilias and fantastic views of the Acropolis.
6 - Monday 19 October Katakolon (Greece) 1000 1900
The small seaside town of Katakolon has a beach at the end of the pier, and tavernas and bars along the waterfront. It is used as the gateway to the ancient site of Olympia, 35 kilometers away, which is where the Olympic Games began.

Corfu Town, or Kerkyra, is the charming port for the lovely island of Corfu. There are many restaurants and shops radiating out from Kapodistra and the elegant, colonnaded Liston building. Overlooking the harbour is the palaia Anaktora, formerly the residence of British-Greek royalty. Paleokastritsa has lovely beaches backed by olive, cypress and lemon trees, and one of Corfu's key sights is the handsome Palace of Achilleion and its gardens.
8 - Wednesday 21 October Kotor (Montenegro) 0800 1900
The lovely fortified town of Kotor sits in a dramatic bay surrounded by limestone massifs in a magnificent region of Montenegro. Kotor's city walls enclose a well-preserved medieval centre, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. St Tryphon's Cathedral is decorated with 14th-century frescoes.
