Behold breathtaking views and watch mythical landscapes come to life as you sail Greece’s fabled Aegean Sea and Turquoise Coast of Turkey on this deluxe, seven-night cruise aboard the Wind Spirit — a sleek, four-masted sailing yacht. Journey to the cradle of civilization as you cruise to fabled halcyon islands from antiquity. Experience the beauty of vehicle-free Hydra and unlock the mysteries of Santorini, a crescent-shaped island featuring a spectacular caldera shaped by a volcanic explosion about 3,600 years ago —potentially burying what some believe was the lost city of Atlantis. Explore historic Rhodes Town and tour the Monastery of St. John in Patmos. Sail Turkey’s sun‑drenched coast to visit the UNESCO‑designated ruins of Ephesus, the most spectacularly preserved Greco‑Roman city in the world. Traverse the streets of ancient Delos, legendary birthplace of Artemis and Apollo, and enjoy free time exploring the island of Mykonos, famous for its whitewashed houses and iconic windmills.
