• Variety Cruises Adriatic
    From the charm of Corfu to the peace of Paxos, this wonderful cruise traces one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. Sailing on the stylish 49-passenger yacht Panorama , operated by Greek small ship specialist Variety Cruises, you’ll tick off four countries – Greece, Albania, Montenegro and Croatia – in just eight lazy days, with plenty of time for sightseeing and swimming along the way.
  • Variety Cruises Sicily/Malta
    This is a fascinating journey around the island of Sicily on the stylish 72-passenger Variety Voyager. You’ll visit ancient Greek and Roman ruins in Syracuse and Agrigento, discover a Greco-Roman theater in iconic Taormina, and spend a day in Malta, an island with megalithic structures believed to predate Egypt’s pyramids.
  • Variety Cruises Cyclades
    From Cape Sounion and the temple of Poseidon to the UNESCO archaeological site in Delos, this seven-night cruise takes you through the glories of ancient Greece, with plenty of time to soak up the sun and sample the local cuisine along the way. The Galileo takes you and 48 other passengers in luxe comfort from Athens to six ports of call to unravel the wonders of the Cyclades Islands. The vessel is one of seven ships owned by Variety Cruises, a Greek-owned small ship cruise line with a large American client base.
  • Variety Cruises Aegean Sea
    From the Parthenon and the temple of Zeus to the treasures of the National Archaeological Museum, Athens is rich with the relics of ancient Greece. And for thousands of travelers each year it’s also the point of departure for a modern-day odyssey. The Panorama II takes you and 48 other passengers in luxe comfort from Athens, a city of nearly five million people – more than half the population of Greece — to ports of call with populations that range from more than 600,000 to less than a dozen. A bon voyage, indeed.
