This activity will end right where it started.Departure point Amalia hotels valid for clients with prepaid transfer from/to port. Pick up service from the seaside hotels available with extra cost. For Vip service please inform us with your address in order to inform you for pick up point and time.
Begin your experience with a pickup (if option selected) from your Athens hotel or a central meeting point. Then, travel by air-conditioned coach to Piraeus port to catch your ship.

Step aboard and cruise to your first destination: the island of Poros. As you take in the views and sea air, hear about the culture and sights on the three islands so you can make the most of your time on each.

Arrive at Poros and enjoy time to explore independently. Visit a waterfront taverna, shop for souvenirs or, if you wish, head for Trinzia, a Russian dockyard dating from the 19th century. Alternatively, visit Poros’ so-called Lemon Forest—an idyllic spot filled with citrus trees, windmills and waterfalls.

Back at sea, enjoy a delicious Greek lunch at one of two sittings in the ship's restaurant—either during your cruise to Hydra or the next leg of your journey between Hydra and Egina.

As you approach Hydra, admire the pretty harbor and get tips from your guide on what to see and do on the island. Head ashore at the colorful capital and enjoy ample time to look around on your own. Amble down the narrow lanes, relax over coffee, or buy souvenirs in the quaint shops.

Afterward, cruise to Egina, also known as Aegina. Here, either join an optional excursion (own expense) to see the well-preserved ancient Temple of Aphaia or delve into the picturesque port town. Stroll along the harborfront, visit an ouzeri or café, or browse the shops.

Return to your boat and sit down to enjoy a Greek folklore show of traditional music and dancing as you sail back to Piraeus. Disembark and finish your trip with a drop-off (if option selected) in Athens.

VIP Cruise Experience: Upgrade to enjoy special amenities and be spoiled in the VIP class lounge. Start with a shared transfer from hotel to port, enjoy a private check-in, and then relax in the VIP lounge. Enjoy a welcome drink and savor a buffet lunch in the VIP dining room. The VIP area is equipped with Wi-Fi, and on the second deck a tax-free luxury goods store awaits. In the summer, be charmed by the sun deck and spacious open space with a comfortable sitting area and bar.

Nice day
Nicole_A

Boat was much larger than expected and packed full of tourists. However, it was well run, efficient and comfortable. The islands were fabulous and worth the day trip. This is more of an under pendant activity with no education or guide. For an additional fee the boat crew will organize tours on hydra and Aegina.

It was pleasant enough, but I would've saved my money

If you just simply enjoy being on the water, this may be the adventure for you. I hoped to see much more of the islands. Learning just how little time we'd get on the islands, we felt compelled to spend the extra money for a walking tour on Hydra and a bus tour on Egina, fearing we might not really get to see much or may get lost if we tried exploring on our own. While our guides were perfectly lovely, we should have saved the additional money spent. Overall, we spent about $380 to mostly look at water and learn very little about the places we were going. Also, the provided lunch was cold and not very tasty, so it was a mediocre day all around.

Dear Erin, thank you for your time to write a review for the cruise. Unfortnately this is not guided tour and it is hop on hop off on the islands with cruiseship including entertainmnet and buffet lunch and on the buffet with hot and cold food. We understood that you decided to buy on the boat local tours and as you mentioned you loved them but you felt that was money spent only as the tour didn't met your expections. Kind regards Hara Kritikidou Customer Service Manager

A long but worthwhile day

I took the VIP package as I assumed the boat would be very crowded, in the end it was not strictly necessary as there was plenty of space on the boat. However the advantages of the VIP package were pick up from my Air BnB the operator was very helpful. Plenty of space in the VIP cabin with rom to move around. The service from the hostess was very attentive. The snacks and lunch were excellent and beautifully presented, I was expecting mass produced bland food but it was anything but. The day is long so be prepared for the long trips between Islands many in the VIP cabin chose to take a nap and there was space for that. The visits to the Islands gave me an overview which was what I was looking for the stops are not too long. I would recommend it.

The boat ride it self was ok. The boat staff were great and attentive. It was windy thr day we went so the boat didn't doc at the first port. It's understandable but Hydra was the port we wanted to see the most. Excursion to the temple in Aegina was worth it and the pistachio ice cream by the temple was great. Overa it was a good trip.

The staff was the kindest. Very nice boat. Bartenders make great cocktails and mocktails! The tour in Egina is worth it. The walking tour in Hydra, not so much. Just walking around the picturesque Hydra and Poros is so worth it.

If you do not have scheduled trips to the bigger islands, this is definitely worth the experience! The VIP section was amazing and the views were incredible. A must see while in Athens! Tour guides and drivers were fantastic!
