Piraeus (Athens), Greece

Athens is still as iconic as ever. Winding pathways from ancient times transformed into modern-day roads and streets lead you to the monumental gateway of the Acropolis and other archaeological sites. It is a land soaked in history and mythology, but not stuck in the past.

As you wend through back alleys, passing the street art and getting serenaded by street musicians, you are never lost. You are simply taking a journey to an unknown destination. You may find yourself at the likes of the Church of Agioi at the southeast corner of the Holy Apostles Ancient Agora, a less-crowded historical site away from the flocks of tourists.

Try your hand at haggling with local vendors at the Plaka or Monastiraki flea market. There are so many handmade wares and trinkets to peruse and purchase. Keep an eye out for the more risqué souvenirs if you want a good laugh.

Aside from venturing through the cradle of Western Civilization, you can explore the port of Piraeus. It is the biggest port in Greece and one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean. Centuries of history have transformed this seaside town from a wartime fortress to a major shipping and transportation center.

Nafplion (Mycenae), Greece
In the Saronic Gulf lies the charming small town of Nafplion, Greece. Narrow stone streets amid whitewashed houses and quaint local shops create a romantic picture straight out of a postcard. Find the steps leading to Palamidi castle perched on a cliff atop the town for a heart-pumping exploration. Not far from Nafplion you can explore the remains of King Agamemnon’s castle in Mycenae. This site contains the history of the dominating culture of mainland Greece from the late Bronze Age. Nearby in Epidaurus discover the famous amphitheater where you can stand in certain points at the bottom and hear the speaker at a location in the seats all the way to the top

Corinth Canal Transit | Itea (Delphi), Greece
Corinth Canal Transit | Arrive: 8:00 AM | Depart: 9:00 AM
Itea (Delphi), Greece | Arrive: 1:00 PM | Depart: 6:00 PM
Greece’s Parliament did not authorize the canal’s construction until 1869, and even then, work did not begin until 1882. But a lack of capital set back the construction. In 1890 work on the Corinth Canal started once more and was finally completed for its use for the first time on October 28, 1893. Its final construction stands at 70 feet wide at sea level, 81 feet wide at its top level, 300 feet tall and only about four miles long. Its narrow construction is too small for modern freight ships, but smaller expedition vessels and private boats can freely navigate its route for an adventurous tour.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

Katakolon is a little seaside village on the western coast of Ilia and it’s exactly what you picture when you think what a Greek village should be. You can taste the day’s catch fresh from the fishermen’s nets at the gateway to Olympia. With a small population and plenty of shops and restaurants to peruse, it’s the perfect way for travelers to get an intimate look at Greek life.

The home of the first Olympic Games in 776 BCE, Olympia still holds wonder. As explorers wander onto the ruins the first thing that catches their eyes are the stone columns. Still standing where they were first lined up in ancient times, one cannot help but let their imagination run wild as they fantasize about running the first flame across the field.

Many are tempted to take their place in history when they catch sight of the pedestals where Olympic winners once stood to receive their spoils. But please, don’t stand on the victors’ columns. It will have to be enough to admire them or strike a triumphant pose next to one of the first place pedestals.

Fun fact: This is where the saying, “Don’t rest on your laurels,” came to be. Victors of the Olympic Games earned a wreath made of aromatic bay laurels as a symbol of their triumph. But these long-past victories were never meant to help them hold their social status long term.

Wander further into the ruins and find the remains of the Temple of Zeus. The platform is roped off for visitors, but just standing at its base is enough to inspire awe. Visitors can spend hours at the site and marvel at how all those constructs have managed to keep standing after all this time.

Fiskardo, Kefalonia, Greece
Amid the Ionian island of Kefalonia lies a small fishing village, Fiskardo, with all the charms of a tiny Greek town but the elegant feel of a luxurious getaway. As a popular choice for yachts to dock, the harbor hosts plenty of upscale seafood restaurants. Opt for a quick dip after a day of adventure at one of Fiskardo’s many pebble coves. For a more typical beach day, venture about 40 minutes out to the famous Myrtos Beach. If you’re seeking a day filled with activity, try diving, snorkeling or kayaking with the locals. Find great hiking at the Venetian Lighthouse, Cypress and Battery Trails.

Corfu, Greece
In the north of the Ionian Sea lies Corfu, a Greek island with history and cultural influence from the French, Venetians and the English, all leading to its modern-day, cosmopolitan reputation. While most Greek Isles are associated with ancient ruins, Corfu offers a different historical lens with monuments like Achilleion Palace. It also holds a quainter side with surrounding villages to explore like the charming ghost town of Old Perithia in Kasiopi. It’s not a trip to Greece without visiting some of Corfu’s stunning beaches like Canal d’Amour or Paleokastritsa.

Saranda (Butrint), Albania
The horseshoe-shaped bay of Saranda on the Albanian Riviera lies between the Ionian Sea and rolling hills of olive groves. When visiting, the Butrint National Park should hold a spot on your bucket list. This UNESCO World Heritage Site and Ramsar Wetland Site of International Importance holds the remains of a city from the Roman Empire, a scenic lagoon and breathtaking mountains. Surrounded by beaches and a promenade, Saranda is a quintessential Mediterranean destination when you’re looking for a simple yet elegant experience. Wander over to the secluded natural bay of Mirror Beach on the way to Ksamil village.

At Sea
Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore

Kotor, Montenegro
Along the Adriatic coast of Montenegro lies the fortified town of Kotor, known for its medieval old town with winding streets and historic squares, as well as its many Romanesque churches and Maritime Museum. For unbelievable views of the Bay of Kotor, hike to the top of San Giovanni Fortress. Stroll through the many vendors, taking in the sounds, scents and colors as they call out their daily specials, produce and homemade goods. Swim the stunning azure waters of the bay with a boat tour to the Blue Cave.

Dubrovnik (Old Town), Croatia
Along the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia lies Dubrovnik, a city well-known for its 16th-century Old Town. Filled with enchanting historic sites and containing a sense of stories past, the Croatian city has rightly earned its place among the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Delve into the fantastical side of the city as you tour the streets that have become part of cinematic history. Take a break from the historic for a relaxing beach day with a quick ferry ride to the nearby Lokrum Island. Delve deep into the local culture with wine and delectable platters of meat and cheese.

Korcula, Croatia | Hvar, Croatia
Korcula, Croatia | Arrive: 7:00 AM | Depart: 1:00 PM
Hvar, Croatia | Arrive: 5:00 PM
The ancient Greeks once referred to the island of Kor?ula as Black Kor?ula because of the dense forest covering it. One of the main resorts, Kor?ula Town, is often referred to as “Little Dubrovnik” for its medieval churches, houses, squares and palaces. Discover the fascinating history of the island with explorations of the forts, complete with defensive walls and towers that tell of a storied past. It also contains approximately 50 beaches, among them the sandy shores of Vela Pržina in Lumbarda, providing a quieter beach adventure with soft sands, serene waters and one of the sunniest spots on the island.

Hvar, Croatia
The port town of Hvar shares its name with the Croatian island, renowned as a prime summer destination for yachting. Considered the crown jewel of Croatia’s Dalmatian islands, Hvar has cultivated a reputation as rich in history, culture, literature and natural monuments. Drink in the stunning landscapes as Hvar is covered in vast fields of ancient olive trees, lavender and vineyards. Within its bounds you will find the oldest town in the entirety of Croatia, Stari Grad, established by the ancient Greeks. For a picture-perfect seaside locale, head over to Dubovica Beach along the Adriatic Sea.

Trogir, Croatia
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Trogir has a history dating far back with successive inhabiting from Greeks, Romans, Hungarians and Venetians, making for a rich and diverse cultural influence. Its position close to the Dalmatian coast means it’s a prime spot to search for beaches just on the outskirts. Become transported to a time that feels like a story out of a fairytale with a visit to the Land Gate, the main entrance to the city. Take a leisurely stroll through the local farmers’ market where you can find fresh fruits, vegetables and locally sourced olive oil.

Opatija, Croatia
Located between mountains and the ocean, Opatija is a magnificent coastal town on the Adriatic, often referred to as the “Vienna by the Sea” for its history and architecture. The town is also known for being a wellness destination, with plenty of spas and outdoor activities to choose from. Step onto the Lungomare boardwalk, an enchanting seafront promenade that stretches along the coast of Kvarner Bay to take in the view and the fresh air. Just off the boardwalk and well worth a visit is St. Jacob Church. In Croatian, the word Opatija means abbey, and this particular church is the inspiration behind the town’s name.

At Sea - Scenic Navigation and outbound clearance
Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore

Piran, Slovenia
One of only three coastal towns in Slovenia, Piran offers a bustling harbor scene filled with seafood restaurants, a busy main square and enthralling medieval walls to explore. Tartini Square offers a superb perspective both from the ground and up high. Taking the trail from the Piran Promenade at the end of Tartini Square to Punta, you can watch fishing boats and private vessels pull into the dock. Treat your tastebuds to the fresh catch of the day as you enjoy the nautical atmosphere at Ladja Podlanica, a seafood restaurant located on the owners’ fishing boat.

Monfalcone Port
Bordering the Adriatic, Slovenia and Croatia, Trieste is at the crossroads of culture. Enjoy sweeping views of the sea from the Castle of Miramare, built by order of Ferdinand Maximilian of Hapsburg. After strolling the castle’s large garden and opulent interiors, find your way to Barcola Beach nearby, one of the most popular in Trieste that features a long promenade walkway perfect for a leisurely amble. Literary fans will be surprised to learn that Irish novelist James Joyce had a strong connection to Trieste. You can take a photo with a statue of the writer and visit a museum dedicated to him near the Roma bridge.

Trieste, Italy | Venice, Italy
The iconic image of Venice shows a city with no roads, only canals, including the Grand Canal thoroughfare most often associated with it. That’s because it’s built on over 100 small islands in a lagoon amid the Adriatic Sea. In the heart of the city close to Piazza San Marco you will find the Bridge of Sighs, an architectural jewel amid so many historical wonders. Venetian cuisine is renowned throughout Italy for its high-quality seafood. Positioned within a lagoon, local chefs and restaurants have the advantage of fresh-caught fish directly from the source and bringing it straight to their tables.

World Navigator
World Navigator was conceived with the sensibilities of an explorer – one who believes the world is best experienced up close, while still leaving the destination untouched. She realizes the possibilities of environmental stewardship with the latest hybrid power management and propulsion system, maximizing fuel efficiency and consuming as low as one-fifth the fuel compared to conventional cruise-ship systems. Her alternate hydro-jet propulsion system helps her quietly cruise up to five knots without disturbing marine wildlife for incomparable, up-close encounters. This is how you can best enjoy the world and protect it for others. And as the intimate, yacht-style World Navigator quietly nestles into the amazing, remote and rugged locations on your itinerary, you’ll wonder why anyone would roam any other way.
