Cyclades honeymoon cruises

Cyclades honeymoon cruises

The Cyclades are perhaps the most romantic venue for honeymoon cruises in Greece. These breathtaking islands are literally circled round the island of Delos, hence the term "Cyclades". Not only are there hundreds and hundreds of islands to discover, several of these are truly famous either for their stunning natural beauty or for their important ancient history. Indeed, nearly all of the Cyclades have been inhabited long before the ancient Greeks settled there, which is shown by the history monuments, temples and other archaeological sites can be found on most islands. Note, that these sites can easily be explored on honeymoon cruises on motorsailers & superyachts.
First of all, these comfortable yachts and gulets will be able to bring you directly at the interesting sites - which are predominantly along the coastlines of these isles - while the larger cruise liners and ferries will only be able to drop you off at a few commercial harbours. Secondly, the sites are open, contrary to for example the acropolis, where everything is fenced off and walking around the ruins is strictly prohibited.

The concept of Cyclades honeymoon cruises will be enjoyed most on the crewed yacht charter vessels, such as the gulets or goulettes (the traditional wooden motorsailers), or the megayacht & superyachts. But besides luxurious honeymoon cruises on these comfortable and fully crewed yachts, a cheaper option could be to rent a regular sailing yacht with just a skipper. The recommended sailing yachts for Cyclades honeymoon cruises are Jeanneau Sun Odyssey, Bavaria, Beneteau Oceanis and Ocean Star yachts, ranging in size from 30 feet to 56 feet.
The motorsailers and gulets have one major advantage: the wooden finish and beautiful lines are ideal for romantic honeymoon cruises in the Cyclades. The megayachts and superyachts on the other hand have the advantage of more powerful engines allowing you to cover more distances while cruising these Cyclades and the adjacent Dodecanese and Saronic Gulf (near Athens).

Highlights for Cyclades honeymoon cruises are no doubt the attractive islands of Santorini, Paros, Milos, Naxos, Kythnos, Myconos and Syros. The yacht charter bases to choose from are Syros, Paros, Lavrion and of course Athens.
