Azamara Quest
Sailing: September 23, 2023

A voyage of mythical discoveries

The cradle of European civilization, settled more than 3,500 years ago. A mythological crossroads of the past and present with endless spectacular ruins. Your intensive voyage through Greece starts at the beginning: Athens. From there we sail to Syros, where in Ermoupoli, you can take a stroll through the Vaporia neighborhood, stopping to admire the frescoes of St. Nicholas’ Church, or find a quaint cafe and take in the sights and sounds of everyday Greek life in Plateia Miaouli, the town’s grand square. Then, we’ll head to Kusadasi, Turkey, for a late-night stay where you’ll enjoy plenty of time to explore the ancient attractions in Ephesus, including the Library of Celsus, the Odeon, and the marble Arcadian Street.

With a stop the tiny island of Patmos, discover why it’s a place of deep importance for Christianity with a visit to the ominous-sounding Cave of the Apocalypse, or the massive Monastery of Saint John the Theologian that stands guard over Patmos town. During your late night in Santorini, set aside time to indulge in its panoramic views and a glass of naturally sweet vinsanto—a pairing we promise will please your palate. With a history that dates back to the 9th century, it’s a good thing you have a late stay and lots of time to discover Heraklion. Explore the many treasures at the Archaeological Museum or visit nearby Knossos, the center of Minoan civilization. In Monemvasia, a castle town suspended in history, visit the Old Town, a perfectly preserved medieval settlement with ancient monuments, religious sites, and an invaluable archaeological collection housed in an old mosque.

During a late stay in Zakynthos, make the trip to Shipwreck Beach, a crescent-shaped beach surrounded by rock walls looking out to clear turquoise waters. It can only be accessed by boat, but is well worth the trip. Or for a panoramic view of the town, discover the Venetian castle atop Bochali Hill. We stay late in Corfu, perfect for taking your time meandering the maze-like cobblestone streets of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Old Town. Or venture into the Corfu countryside to explore villages like the foodie paradise of Agni before embarking on a luxurious day at sea. We conclude our epic journey in one of the world’s most captivating cities, Venice, where we encourage you to stay and explore the world-famous canals and storied architecture.

    Date: Sat 23-Sep 2023
    Activity: Embark
    Arrival: -
    Depart: 5:00 pm
    Start your journey in Piraeus with an archaeological walk past landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, and of course, the Acropolis. Afterwards, head to the Central Market for a feast of fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese.

    Date: Sun 24-Sep 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 5:00 pm
    Off the beaten path, Syros is far less hedonistic than its neighbors, Mykonos and Santorini. Instead, it offers an authentic look at what Greek life is truly like on the Cyclades. Home to fantastic food and beautiful beaches, Syros is a hidden gem that doesn’t necessarily want to be discovered — only further adding to its unmistakable charm.
  • Day 3
    Kusadasi
    (Ephesus), Turkey
    Read More +
    Date: Mon 25-Sep 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 8:00 pm
    Kusadasi has many charms, but let’s talk Turkey: The star attraction is Ephesus. Once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, its marble-made Arcadian Street stretches from the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre (where St. Paul used to preach) to the harbor. Nearby sites include the Temple of Artemis, Basilica of St. John, and House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days.

    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 8:00 pm
    The tiny island of Patmos is where the last book of the New Testament was allegedly written. Visit the Cave of the Apocalypse where John the Apostle stayed in AD 95. Fast-forward 993 in the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian which still stands guard over Patmos town. Then, make the pilgrimage back to Skala for a picnic of local delicacies like fresh octopus and savory cheese pie.

    Greece
    Read More +
    Date: Wed 27-Sep 2023
    Activity: Tendered
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 9:30 pm
    The capital, Fira, clings to the rim of the caldera 900 feet above the sea. Take the cable car, or giddy up on a donkey to climb the 588 steps to the top. Hike to nearby Oia, a quintessential Greek village. Head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompeii, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied (and explosive) past.
  • Day 6
    Heraklion
    (Iraklion), Greece
    Read More +
    Date: Thu 28-Sep 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 8:00 pm
    As the largest city on the isle of Crete, with a history that dates back to the 9th century, Heraklion has seen its share of travelers over the millennia. It’s been ruled by the Arab, Venetian, and Ottoman empires. It’s hosted international athletes during the 2004 Olympics. And now, as a new port of call for Azamara, Heraklion welcomes you with a wealth of timeless experiences.

    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 6:00 pm
    Hidden away from the rest of the world, Monemvasia is a perfect escape for explorers and history buffs looking for a town seemingly unaffected by the passage of time.

    Zakynthos
    Greece
    Read More +
    Date: Sat 30-Sep 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 9:00 am
    Depart: 8:00 pm
    You'll find this small island packs a punch—from its sheer cliffs to its pristine beaches. In the capital—also named Zakynthos—you'll see traces of the island’s time as an overseas colony of Venice. The best preserved example from this period is the Venetian castle atop Bochali Hill where a bird’s-eye view of the town and panoramic sea views will have you feeling on top of the world.
  • Day 9

    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 8:00 pm
    It's one of the most popular Greek Isles for good reason. Explore the cobblestoned streets of Old Town in search of handcrafted treasures or while away the day on a sandy beach in town, or head out to the charming countryside. Here you'll find olive groves, lemon trees, and rugged cliffs that are more than postcard-worthy.
