Welcome aboard! Meet your yacht's crew and take some time to get settled into your cabin as you'll be setting sail shortly.
Sifnos is an island municipality in the Greek Cyclades, originally inhabited as far back as 4000 BCE. The main town, near the center, is known as Apollonia, home of the island's folklore museum. The village of Kastro, built on top of a high cliff on the island's northwestern shore on the site of the ancient city of Siphnos, today has extensive medieval remains and is the location of the island's archeological museum. The port settlement, on the west coast of the island is known as Kamares, and sits on the magnificent Bay of Kamares.
The M/Y Alexandros II is a Greek luxury yacht with a sporty and vibrant appearance, and a cruising speed of 28 knots. The vessel is available for exclusive charters, and can accommodate up to 8 guests total in one master cabin, one V.I.P cabin and two twin cabins. Cruise the Mediterranean in a vessel more easily maneuvered to explore the beautiful coastlines than large cruiseliners.
Today you'll cruise for Santorini, marking the first of two consecutive days spent at this incredible island. Enjoy your view of the caldera as you sail to Santorini, a geological remnant of the catastrophic blast that lead to the rapid collapse of the Minoan civilization.
Santorini is made up of three close-knit islands, the most southerly of the Cyclades group. The islands have dramatic scenery created by a now inactive volcano situated in the centre of the main island Thira. On the west, white houses perch on cliffs that plunge dramatically to the sea; on the east there are long, beautiful beaches of black volcanic sand.
Naxos is a Greek island, the largest island in the Cyclades island group in the Aegean. It was the centre of archaic Cycladic culture. Naxos is a popular tourist destination, with several easily accessible ruins. It has a number of beautiful beaches, such as those at Agia Anna, Agios Prokopios, Alikos, Kastraki, Mikri Vigla, Plaka, and Agios Georgios, most of them near Hora. Naxos is the most fertile island of the Cyclades.
Today you'll set sail for your first of two days in Mykonos. You're likely to catch some sights of Paros or Delos on the way, or perhaps some even smaller islands that dot the Cyclades.
Mykonos is a Greek island renowned for its sandy beaches, cosmopolitan atmosphere and its intense nightlife. The island is part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Siros, Paros and Naxos. Many Greek and a few international celebrities have summer residences in Mykonos and can often be spotted having dinner at a small street-side table of an expensive restaurant or in a cozy taverna. The island has a legendary nightlife featured by a vast number of bars and nightclubs, but peace and tranquility can easily be found away from these areas.
Kythnos is a Greek island and municipality in the Western Cyclades between Kea and Serifos. It has more than 70 beaches, many of which are still inaccessible by road. The island has two significant settlements, the village of Messaria or Kythnos, known locally as Hora, and the village of Driopis or Driopida, also known as Horio. Both villages are notable for their winding and often stepped streets, too narrow for vehicular traffic. The villages are very picturesque but in different architectural styles. On the northeast end of the island lies Loutra, a village famous for its thermal springs, which are said to have curative properties. Besides its numerous beaches and picturesque villages, it also is the site of one of the largest caves in Greece, Katafiki Cave in Dryopida.
After breakfast this morning, you'll disembark from your yacht with your private voyage having now come to its conclusion.
