Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome on board the SeaDream II
This Mediterranean cruise departs from Piraeus, near Athens in Greece, with boarding beginning in the evening, including a personal meet and greet with the captain. Piraeus has a wealth of historic attractions to enjoy or, if you prefer, you can take advantage of one of our pre-arranged land excursions to nearby Athens.
Our recommended tours:
We offer a complete holiday planning service, which means that we have the pleasure of offering you exclusive tours to enhance your experience. Before beginning your cruise, you can enjoy our Guided Tour of Athens & the Acropolis, featuring the most intriguing ruins, such as the Temple of Zeus and the Olympic Stadium, as well as the Acropolis – simply click the “Tours & Land Excursions” tab at the top of the page for more information.

Day 2: Relax amongst unspoiled island scenery in Hydra
The first stop on this Greece and Italy cruise gives you the opportunity to rejuvenate on the idyllic island of Hydra. There is just one main town in Hydra, known simply as Hydra Port, which is home to a crescent-shaped harbour, around which is centred a strand of restaurants, shops, markets and galleries that cater to tourists and locals, known as Hydriots. The charm of Hydra Port certainly lies in its rich history, beautiful port and a waterfront unspoiled by motorised vehicles, and the island offers a rugged charm and some spectacular scenery that we’re sure you will delight in. After some time appreciating the sublime beauty of Hydra, as the sun sets, you will be treated to a complimentary wine-tasting experience with Lorenzo Mario – the charismatic and talented winemaker behind Olivero Mario, which produces artisan wines in exclusive and limited quantities. The Olivero Mario wines are elegant and full of personality, with seven labels from select vineyards that you can enjoy during this entertaining wine-tasting experience.
Our recommended tours: If you want to enjoy a traditional experience in Hydra, opt for our Donkey Ride & Hydra Walking Tour, which takes you through the narrow, winding streets to the best attractions, including breathtaking views of the harbour. Alternatively, if you’re eager to relax on your last full day at sea and soak up the Greek sunshine, we can arrange a Water-taxi Transfer to Vlihos Beach, where you can wander barefoot across the sun-drenched grey-pebble beach. To find out more, simply click the “Tours & Land Excursions” tab at the top of the page.

Day 3: Immerse yourself in the beauty of Monemvasia
On day 3 of your Mediterranean wine voyage you will visit the southeastern coast of the Peloponnese archipelago and the historic port of Monemvasia. Here, you can discover enriching attractions, such as the Byzantine architecture and the historic fortress, as well as the Christos Elkomenos Church and the archaeological site of Epidavros Limera, where you can climb to the Church of Hagia Sophia to catch a glimpse of the most magnificent views of the town and the Myrtoan Sea.
Our recommended tours: To make the most of your wine voyage of the Mediterranean, why not enjoy our Visit to a Monemvasia Winery? This pre-arranged land excursion takes you to an iconic winery in Velies, which is famous for its Malvasia wine – a sweet wine made with sundried grapes. To find out more, simply click the “Tours & Land Excursions” tab at the top of the page.

Day 4: Relax on the idyllic island of Elafonisos
Today, you will experience the peaceful charm of Elafonisos Island, which is a lesser-known Greek island in the Lakonikos Kolpos (Bay of Laconia), between Kythira and Peloponnese. The island’s beauty is reminiscent of the Cyclades, with pristine turquoise waters and one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece: Fragos (Simos) Beach. Here, you can completely rejuvenate amongst beautiful scenery and this is the perfect place to enjoy sunbathing or watersports, such as snorkeling. Although the largest inhabited island in the Peloponnese archipelago, the island only measures 7 miles and so is also a wonderful place to enjoy walking in nature, whilst listening to unfamiliar birdsong and appreciating the rich flora and fauna of the island. We also highly recommend exploring the “Pyrgos ton Meladon” castle to catch a beautiful panoramic view of Laconic Bay.

Day 5: Wine-tasting at sea
On day 5 of your Italy and Greece cruise, you will sail through the tranquil waters in the direction of Sicily. There will be plenty of time to relax on the yacht and enjoy the luxury services, such as the golf simulator, swimming pool and spa, as well as take in glorious views that will lull you into complete relaxation. As a finale to your day at sea, in the evening you will have a chance to reflect on the beautiful sea scenery that you have witnessed with a special Winemaker’s Dinner featuring Olivero Mario wines. As a part of this luxury evening experience you will sit down to an elegant meal that has been expertly crafted by the SeaDream chefs to complement the glorious vintage wines that you have enjoyed during your wine voyage (note that SeaDream offers a by-the-glass pairing package for the Winemaker’s Dinner for an additional cost).

Day 6: Marvel at Mount Etna in Taormina
After discovering the enticing beauty of Greece and its islands, today you can explore the chic town of Taormina, which sits at the foothills of Mount Etna on the east coast of Sicily. SeaDream anchors in the bay of Giardini Naxos, allowing you to appreciate fantastic views of the UNESCO-protected natural site of Mount Etna and Taormina. A shuttle bus will be waiting to take you from Giardini Naxos to Taormina, where you can explore the fascinating attractions, such as the Duomo (Cathedral), Palazzo Corvaja, the Anglican Church of Saint George, the Church of San Domenico and the exquisite Baroque fountain. Alternatively, opt for one of our exclusive land excursions to see the wider region. After some time appreciating the sublime beauty of Mount Etna, as the sun sets you will be treated to a complimentary wine-tasting experience with wines from the Maison Louis Jadot winery. This iconic winery was founded in 1859 and has a rich Burgundy heritage, with the majority of its vineyards located in Côte-d’Or – a place renowned for its exceptional terroir and soil. The wine-tasting will be hosted by Thibault Gaugey, Deputy General of Louis Jadot.
Our recommended tour: We highly recommend enjoying our Mount Etna Wine-tasting Experience, featuring local wines produced from the Etna vineyards. Or for something a little more exhilarating, enjoy our Quad Bike Tour to the Etna Lava Fields. To find out more, simply click the “Tours & Land Excursions” tab at the top of the page.

Day 7: Discover the Pearl of the Mediterranean
On the last full day of your Mediterranean wine cruise you will dock at the idyllic Italian island of Capri, which is not far from Sorrento on the south coast of Italy. The island is known as the Pearl of the Mediterranean thanks to its stunning island scenery with vibrant flowers and magical sea caves, as well as its charming boutique stores. The island has so much to offer, including the famous Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto sea cave), Villa Jovis, Giardini di Augusto, Certosa di San Giacomo, Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe and the uniquely shaped Faraglioni rocks. As a finale to your day discovering the Pearl of the Mediterranean, in the evening you will have a chance to reflect on the beautiful island scenery that you have explored with a special Winemaker’s Dinner featuring Louis Jadot wines. As a part of this luxury evening experience you will sit down to an elegant meal that has been expertly crafted by the SeaDream chefs to complement the glorious vintage wines that you have enjoyed during your wine voyage
Our recommended tour: Take advantage of our exclusive Private Island Tour to discover the top attractions, including the hill-top town of Anacapri and the Blue Grotto, or for something cultural, you can opt for our VIP Land Excursion to Pompeii, giving you the opportunity to step back in time at this thought-provoking archaeological site. Simply click the “Tours & Land Excursions” tab at the top of the page for more information.
*Note that SeaDream offers a by-the-glass pairing package for the Winemaker’s Dinner for an additional cost.

About SeaDream Wine Voyages

SeaDream sails to some of the most beautiful ports in the Mediterranean, such as Portofino and the Cinque Terre in Italy, as well as Monte Carlo and Nice on the French Riviera. The unrivalled luxury of the SeaDream yachts, coupled with the enchantment of the region, make the ideal opportunity to grow your passion and knowledge of wine, with refined wine-tastings hosted by a visiting winemaker.

The SeaDream collection of exclusive wine voyages have been designed to enhance both your culinary and vacation experience. As a part of the cruise you can explore flavours and the history of some of Europe’s most renowned wineries, as well as several lesser-known “hidden gem” vineyards.

Exclusive wine tastings aboard the SeaDream are hosted by a visiting winemaker and are followed by a special Winemaker’s Dinner, where the expert chefs create a taste experience to complement the vintage wines that you have discovered. A selection of wines will be available during the Winemaker’s Dinner, each of which has been hand-selected by the visiting winemaker. This unique evening experience is all about unforgettable cuisine and sublime wines and Champagnes, and is incomparable to other wine cruises.

As with other SeaDream cruises, bar drinks and selected wines are complimentary; however, by-the-glass wine packages for the Winemaker’s Dinner can be purchased for an additional cost.
