The motor-sailers are also known as caiques or gullets, but be aware that some caiques are nothing more that water-taxis or day-tripper boats and totally lack the luxury of the true glorious gulets that are built for cruises Greece. Onboard you can expect a jacuzzi, chef cook, large state-rooms with ensuite bathrooms, and most and foremost total privacy since you will have the crew (Captain, Hostesses, Deck hands and Chef Cook) all to yourself: their are no other guests on board if you rent a gulet as so-called full charter or private charter. In comparison: on larger cruise ships you only have the cabin charter option. Another advantage of cruises in Greece on a gulet instead of a larger cruise ship is the possibility to visit the picturesque ports, hamlets and bays where many of the important archaeology of Greece can be found. If you prefer to have a taste of the local culture and cuisine these motor-sailers are the obvious choice.
There is however another option for cruises in greece, though slightly more expensive: the superyachts or megayachts. Although - in my opinion - somewhat less romantic than the wooden & brass atmosphere of a traditional gulet, it has an important advantage, namely the more powerful engines which allow you to visit a far larger area in one week during your cruises in Greece.
