Itinerary

Sat, 03.06.2017

Piraeus (Athens)/Greece, departure 23.00 hrs

You can see the sights of Athens before your cruise departs with our pre-cruise programme*.

Sun, 04.06.2017

Idra/Saronic Islands/Greece , 7.00 – 14.00 hrs

A gem amongst the Greek islands and the retreat of choice for Athenian high society: time seems to have stopped on Idra. There are no cars; only mules and stone captains’ houses. Walk through the narrow alleyways of the port town and be captivated by the atmosphere of the island.

Mon, 05.06.2017

Volos/Greece, 8.00 – 17.00 hrs

Enjoy unforgettable moments not only in the Meteora monastery complex*, but also on a bike tour on Mount Pelion*. Alternatively, simply enjoy a day on the beach.

TIP:
So close to heaven.
The Meteora monastery complex* is perched several hundred metres in the air on gigantic boulders. Set out from Volos to visit the nuns and monks in their unusual domicile.

Tue, 06.06.2017

Naxos/Cyclades/Greece, 8.30 – 18.00 hrs

An insider’s tip: “Once you let the Cycladic island of Naxos into your heart, you will return there again and again” (DIE ZEIT). The capital is dominated by a Venetian castle and its beaches are perfect for sunbathing and swimming. Discover the distinct charm of the island on a tour of discovery* through traditional villages or a hike across the Tragea plateau*.

Wed, 07.06.2017

Marmaris/Turkey, 8.00 – 24.00 hrs

Liberal and open to the world, Marmaris is one of the most modern towns in Turkey. Dive into the hustle and bustle on the busy seafront or spend the day on the beach in Icmeler. Alternatively, visit the Dalyan delta* and the ruins of Kaunos*, or set out on a boat trip* along the coast.

Thu, 08.06.2017

Simi/Dodecanese/Greece , 6.00 – 20.00 hrs

Fishing boats and sailing yachts are moored in the port, old manor houses line the steep slopes and vibrant life dominates the promenade: this place is one of the most beautiful in the Aegean. See for yourself, perhaps in combination with a climb to the upper part of town where you can enjoy fascinating panoramic views. The many small bays are no less inviting.

Fri, 09.06.2017

Mykonos/Cyclades/Greece, 8.00 – 17.00 hrs

The backdrop is like a postcard, with whitewashed cube-like houses, blue shutters and romantic alleyways. Enjoy the view of the port from the shadows of the famous windmills or visit Delos*: this almost uninhabited island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you would rather explore at your own pace, our travel concierge recommends chartering a private yacht* or riding* through the picturesque countryside.

Sat, 10.06.2017

Piraeus (Athens)/Greece, arrival 5.00 hrs

Testimonials

  • “I do wish to thank you, the Charge Nurse and the rest of your dialysis team. You’re doing a great service to those in need of it and who are keen to travel at the same time.  Your variety of ocean and river cruises gives all those who may be interested a wide choice of styles and destinations, while at the same time being able to rely on professional care and service in dialysis needs. Keep up the good work. Thank you once again”

    Mr Dominic Yau
  • Cruise was wonderful. We loved the Europa2  and Dr. Westerman was a delight to have do our dialysis sessions.

    Mrs S Pearl
  • We had a lovely holiday and have lots of pictures to remind us of where we went – they are on my screensaver already and are a very enjoyable reminder.  As you know I love these holidays. I am really grateful that I could have a holiday while on dialysis – it is so lovely to get away from home for more than a night!

    Mrs L Osborn
  • I’d just like to thank you and your professional Dialysis Team for making my first ever cruise experience so wonderful.  Starting from the time of booking, through the worst parts – waiting for the departure date to come around, right through until disembarkation.

    The paperwork, though comprehensive was clear and easy for myself and my home clinic nurses to complete, and your advice on what to pack for the expectations of the cruise liner took that stress away.

    It was good to meet everyone in your team and my compatriots for treatment so soon after embarkation and everything always felt like it was no problem and easily handled.  The dialysis team was totally professional at all times, but that was also complimented by their personalities which meant time on dialysis went quite quickly chatting etc.  The Nephrologist was extremely thorough at all times but was also quite amusing in her own way.  The Charge Nurse was a wealth of experience and definitely the glue bonding the team together and always available for everyone at all times.  The two nurses providing support were effective team players and knew their stuff.

    Being an accompanied cruise meant there was always someone about if you wanted a chat even on the excellent inclusive shore trips.  It was good to see the planning that went in to arranging dialysis sessions around these activities and the team were always looking to be flexible on start stop times.

    I will do this again in the future, need to save up a bit first, but would recommend it to anyone.  Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

    Mr K Summerhayes
  • I wanted to tell you that it was a wonderful cruise and thank you for all the efforts you have had in respect to the dialyses.  Everything was working at the full satisfaction.
