Why a seven day Greek island cruise is a great idea
Seasons come as they go, and summer is here, in the aftermath of the covid crisis that put a strain on our daily routines and future plans for the last couple of months. Yet it didn’t succeed in dampening our spirits, it made us stronger, adaptive and more resilient as well as helping us look at holidaying differently. Perhaps it also made our holiday planning a little bit cleverer. So now that summer is here to stay, let’s all enjoy it in a quintessentially Greek way. And especially, in the post-covid era, here is why a seven day Greek island motor yacht cruise is a great idea.
Cruising through holiday distancing
An inherent part of sailing holidays is keeping your distance. From other vessels at sea, from shores, from swimming zones, from other seafaring, social groups even at the docks. It is the perfect way to enjoy a holiday on your own party’s terms, indulging in maximum freedom of movement and privacy, both of which are integral in securing a holiday to remember. On a seven day Greek island motor yacht cruise, food and beverage is partially covered, so you don’t have to eat out for every meal. On board you can enjoy the togetherness of your own group of people, whether its friends, family or a mixture of both. You have privacy from other individuals too as on a sailing holiday, it is all a matter of distancing and how much you desire it. Of course, you can dock and anchor wherever appropriate so you can explore the inland parts of islands as much as you like when you want to get a flavour of each island and saunter around its cobblestone streets.
The unbeatable Greek advantage
Greece is known to have numerous islands, more than 200 inhabited ones, and this is one of the factors that make it a timeless choice for a summer holiday. Apart from the islands themselves, arriving from one place to the next by sea and the whole sailing experience altogether provides a thrill that is not easily described. A seven day Greek island motor yacht cruise offers unique visuals, and each shore provides you with yet another chance to be awed. There are some things that are priceless, such as diving into crystalline waters before breakfast. The primal sense of liberation you feel as the breeze blows through your hair, the sun caresses your skin and the mesmerising sea horizon is strewn at your feet, day in and day out. Witnessing a sunset and sunrise at sea is beyond extraordinary, transcending an unprecedented gratitude and a newfound respect for the magic of nature.
Seven days, five islands
With so many Greek islands to choose from, combinations could in fact be endless.
