“Cruising to the Cyclades” is Peter Sommer Travels’ first cruise in Greece in 2018. This year, to give an impression of the experience, we are providing a diary of sorts on our blog, following last year's precedents in Crete and the Dodecanese and this year's in the Peloponnese. Rather than describing every day in detail (you can check our itineraries on www.petersommer.com for that), every day we will pick one image we took that day, accompanied by some explanations and thoughts.
Another cruise has ended. It was the ninth time, and the seventh year, that we ran our great Aegean itinerary, and this year we managed to visit nine islands in two weeks. We saw many wonderful things and we shared many experiences, old and new, with our smallish group of guests, travelling from the Dodecanese to the Cyclades and back.
It is always strange to say goodbye to our guests after such a long time and so many experiences and so much fun together. It is my sincere hope that they leave the Cyclades cruise with some great memories of the things they saw and the stories they heard, and with a desire to see and hear more. Of course, we also hope they make their various ways home well and as quickly or as slowly as desired, and most of all, we hope to see them all again.
Our parting image is a reminder from a week ago, when we enjoyed the famous views of the Santorini caldera from the village of Oia high up on its rim. One of the most famous views in the Greek Islands, it is just a tiny sample of what the Cyclades have to offer.
