Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your experience with a pickup (if option selected) from your Athens hotel or a central meeting point. Then, travel by air-conditioned coach to Piraeus port to catch your ship.

Step aboard and cruise to your first destination: the island of Poros. As you take in the views and sea air, hear about the culture and sights on the three islands so you can make the most of your time on each.

Arrive at Poros and enjoy time to explore independently. Visit a waterfront taverna, shop for souvenirs or, if you wish, head for Trinzia, a Russian dockyard dating from the 19th century. Alternatively, visit Poros’ so-called Lemon Forest—an idyllic spot filled with citrus trees, windmills and waterfalls.

Back at sea, enjoy a delicious Greek lunch at one of two sittings in the ship's restaurant—either during your cruise to Hydra or the next leg of your journey between Hydra and Egina.

As you approach Hydra, admire the pretty harbor and get tips from your guide on what to see and do on the island. Head ashore at the colorful capital and enjoy ample time to look around on your own. Amble down the narrow lanes, relax over coffee, or buy souvenirs in the quaint shops.

Afterward, cruise to Egina, also known as Aegina. Here, either join an optional excursion (own expense) to see the well-preserved ancient Temple of Aphaia or delve into the picturesque port town. Stroll along the harborfront, visit an ouzeri or café, or browse the shops.

Return to your boat and sit down to enjoy a Greek folklore show of traditional music and dancing as you sail back to Piraeus. Disembark and finish your trip with a drop-off (if option selected) in Athens.

VIP Cruise Experience: Upgrade to enjoy special amenities and be spoiled in the VIP class lounge. Start with a shared transfer from hotel to port, enjoy a private check-in, and then relax in the VIP lounge. Enjoy a welcome drink and savor a buffet lunch in the VIP dining room. The VIP area is equipped with Wi-Fi, and on the second deck a tax-free luxury goods store awaits. In the summer, be charmed by the sun deck and spacious open space with a comfortable sitting area and bar.

Traveler Tips


  • "It is a long day, so bring what you need." See review
  • "The bus tour in Aegina is worth the additional charge, though if you have three or more in your group, it is likely worth it to hire a cab or rent a car to see the Temple of Aphaea." See review
  • "Drinks are available on board but are expensive so you're better off buying on the islands once you get there." See review

Nice day out in a cruise. Hydra is beautiful, Poros looks nice too and Aegina doesn’t seemed pretty to me. Perhaps the excursion to the temple would have been a better idea than staying at the port
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Thank you for your kind words. We have two shore excursions at the island of Aegina. So there are options for the clients that they don't want to stay at the port. Thank you again Christos Nikolaou

Want a quick experience of Greek Isles?

This was a good opportunity to see multiple islands, if you're interested in a quick experience on multiple islands, instead of a long stay on one. Think of it as a sample so you can decide what kind of island you'd want to schedule another time to go back and spend more time on. Each island visited had it's own unique charm and all three were different, and provided different reasons to visit, so all three are worth seeing. During the off season, it was cool, but the boat wasn't very crowded so finding a good sheltered (from wind) with still amazing views wasn't hard to find, but I could see that being a different story during the warmer "busy" season. In the off season, I'm not sure the VIP upgrade is worth it - but I could see it being a more essential need during busy/summer times. The boat was comfortable, the food was good. Crew were all helpful and nice.

Bring some snack food just in case

In the VIP lounge you get free coffee, soda, water. You pay for everything else. The food was extremely overcooked and of a poor quality. Once you're in the lounge you're sold tours on the island. The tours need to be improved. The boat needs a face lift. On the good side we got some great pictures and got to visit some very charming islands

VIP upgrade is completely worth it! Great food, friendly and welcoming staff. Hotel pick up and drop off was very convenient. The tours offered on the islands were great and definitely worth paying for, and with VIP you get a free tour. Highly recommend!

I was going to give this trip a 4 star due to the facts there wasn’t much to see or do at the islands, but that was because we were on the off season. This group works very hard to make your trip a good one. They are attentive, full of information, and the entertainment was fun...OPA!!

I liked every part of the experience: the boat was nice and cozy, the welcome from the crew, the food, the islands and the information received was all great. Also the food was pretty good, I expected less for something included with the ride.

One day cruise to Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Curise

It was a great cruise. Lunch was great. We really enjoyed. It was first time in Athens, Greece and the cruise made our day. We plan to come back again. This time in Summer. One suggestion I have: Please have a designated smoking area. People were smoking outside and when people would go inside and out - and smoke was coming inside from people smoking cigarettes outside.

This cruise trip is a must do if you can spare 1 full day while in Athens. All 3 islands are beautiful. We caught into a rain storm in 2 of those 3 islands, but still the trip was worth it. The indoor entertainment in the cruise was pretty good. Enjoyed the Greek buffet and the live Greek Singing performance in the ship.
