Overview
Visiting the islands of Hydra, Poros, and Egina from Athens in a day is challenging, especially without chartering a boat or taking multiple ferries. This cruise makes it possible aboard one comfortable ship, and includes time to stroll and shop on each island. Relax with pre-arranged tickets and timings, enjoy an onboard lunch, take island tours (at your own expense), and upgrade for VIP boarding and lounge access.
What to Expect
After pickup in central Athens or your Athens hotel by air-conditioned coach, 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.

The three island cruise experience

advertised as VIP was nice, but there were some issues. Our pickup at the Hotel Amelias was in a van with a dent in the side, and the upholstery looked like it hadn't been cleaned since the van was new. After we arrived at the...More

Seeing islands was interesting, actual on experience on boat was miserable. Skip the trip.

We had a fantastic trip in Santorini and Athens and enjoyed 10 days of vacation - until this day. I would not recommend this trip. The three islands we visited were pretty - not much to do or see but very pretty islands to get...More

Dear guest, Thank you for the review. The one day cruise is leisure but very popural activity during the high season. So, some days the cruise is fully booked. There are some attractions for the clients on the boat , for example the folksore show...More

Earplugs are required, but I am glad I did it.

Key points: The islands are beautiful, the music onboard is relentless, excursions cost extra as does the hotel pick up service, and Greeks are wonderful people. This cruise provides an opportunity to get out of Athens and see some other locations. The boat can be...More

VIP option is a waist of money

VIP option is a waist of money, unless cruse is really crowded. You are buying more leg room; all other " inclusions" - you can get better alternative yourself. The cruise is O'K. I 'd rather visit Aegina and Hydra on my ownMore
