One Day Cruise to 3 Greek Islands: Poros - Hydra - Aegina

Upon arrival to Pireaus, you will receive a warm welcome from our Officers and Hostesses who will assist you with boarding one of our luxurious cruise ships and invite you to proceed either to the main lounge, where our musical selections have already started putting you in the right mood with its international music repertoire, or to one of the spacious open decks where you can enjoy the view as the ship leaves the port.

At 08:00 the ship sails for the three beautiful islands of the Saronic Gulf.

Shortly after departure, our guides and hostess will invite you to assemble on one of the lounges, in order to give you all necessary information concerning the ship, the cruise program as well as the islands. This will also be an opportunity for you to get answers to any questions you might have, as our trained staff is there to ensure that you will have a most wonderful day.

Within two hours, we will arrive to the island of Poros, the smallest of the three islands, separated from the Peloponnese by a narrow strait and offering a most enchanting view of Poros Town. Our stay in Poros is 50 min.

Immediately upon the ships departure from Poros, lunch will be served for passengers who have the first sitting cards. As we sail towards Hydra the remaining guests relax in the Ship’s Lounge or enjoy the sun and beautiful panoramic view from one of our spacious decks.

On arrival in the port of Hydra, notice its amphitheatre shape, which once served as a safe shelter for pirates. From the decks, you will be able to admire the very special architecture and dramatic landscapes of the island, whose old traditional stone houses and mansions remain as silent witnesses to a long and turbulent history.

As soon as you disembark, it’s all there… the small narrow stone-paved streets waiting to be explored on foot or by the island’s traditional “vehicle” – the saddled donkey… captivating walks along the old seaside promenade… crystal clear waters, radiant traditional fine craft shops, the beauty of Hydra will conquer you forever!

You will have about 1 hour 40 min at leisure to enjoy the unique charms of Hydra and returning back on board you will receive a homecoming welcome. The tables will be set for the second sitting, giving you an opportunity to taste the gastronomic creations of our Chef.

After your meal, relax with our orchestra and singer Garo, and have a good laugh with our entertainer Jeannot!

As you sail on, you will have the chance to with our dancers to Greek rhythms.

Our next destination is the island of Aegina, where we will stay for 2 hours.

Aegina is the largest of the three islands. Apart from its harbor, there are numerous interesting sites to discover on the island and therefore we propose two optional tours.

The tickets for the above highly recommended optional excursions can be purchased on board.

And if you think that the day ends here… you are mistaken!

The highlight of your cruise still awaits!

A “Traditional Greek Folk Show” with singers and dancers in original costumes form all over Greece, who, together with our Officers, Hostesses and the ever amusing Jeannot, will entertain and animate you up to the final moment when the ship docks in Piraeus.

Finally we will wish you a warm farewell and we would look forward to seeing you again on one of our cruises!

  • To avoid is very far from Greek hospitality. We had a service including tea coffee and water. The staff refused to give them to us despite the detailed voucher. They only want your home money to be cold with the nasty look. 2 personal at the jewelry store look at you as if you were not welcome if you did not buy. Bad experience in this boat you don't feel good at all. To shade the island hydra is beautiful. But you can get there with other boats. Meal more or less well. Folklo dance rather well but not visible. Few outdoor seats to admire the view.

  • Beautiful experience!
  • At 21/09/19 Pragmatopoiisame with the cultural anagennisi N. Filadelfeias The Daily Cruise hydra-Poros-Egina with the ship Anna Maru. A very ugly experience! Very old ship, excellent passengers for the dynatotites of the ship, Rude, reducto and insolent staff, inadmissible program! The inadmissible lunch was given in the shape of a dining room, with result we can taste at 11.30 in the morning! Those who did not have lunch on the deck because the only protected space was the living room with the shop with the two rude sellers, who did everything to stop us from the site, here to attract the foreign tourists who would have sent them More Kerdos! The time to be on every island at a minimum, since the time of the hour was before the ship was even tied to the port and all those passengers landed! Leaving...
