    Exploring the Aegean islands and Ancient wonders on a small ship cruise

    by Helen Iatrou in Superyacht Stories

    In 25 years of living in Greece, I’d visited Nafplio - an easy two-hour drive from the capital, making it a much-loved weekend destination for Athenians - at least half a dozen times. This revelation about my ancestral country was just one of dozens I experienced, together with my fellow 32 passenger during a seven-night, eight-day small ship cruise of the Aegean aboard the Galileo.

    The grand, three-masted navy blue 47m (157ft) motor sailer, launched in 1992, rebuilt in 2007 and renovated in 2016, is equipped with 24 spacious sea view cabins hosting up to 49 passengers. A member of Greek small ship cruise operator Variety Cruises’ 11-strong fleet, its top cruising speed is 11 knots.

    Variety Cruises (formerly Zeus Tours at its time) was the first, small boat company to share the history of the Greek Islands with the world. As the company and its family tradition enters its third generation of leadership, we remain committed to our promise as pioneers of sustainability, becoming the first cruise line worldwide to join TOURISM DECLARES.

    As a small ship cruise company with hospitality and warm service at our core, and with Covid-19 Pandemic putting countries on a war footing, the spirit of co-operation and resilience in the face of adversity extends to the high seas.
