Cruising to Mykonos

A wonderful way of life

Mykonos could be the destination for you if you're considering a Mediterranean cruise anytime soon. Sporting a population of only 5,500, it's a place where you might just find yourself permanently in awe of everything present. More cosmopolitan than Capri, more fashionable than Hawaii, it simply defies comparison and instead presents its own culture and extraordinary scenery.

Picture if you will the bare island bathed in sunlight on a warm weekend morning, with the deep azure waves of the Mediterranean serving as a splendid backdrop. Add to it in your mind's eye a fishing harbour, with dozens of boats bobbing up and down as a cooling wind blows through the surrounding ramshackle streets. The domes and crosses of innumerable churches form a characteristic skyline.

Yes, this is the seaside town of Mykonos, where you will experience much of what this destination has to offer. Its white houses topped with terracotta tiles, coupled with the marble on the ground, provide an atmosphere that can only be described at quintessentially Greek. Modern enough to provide everything a holidaymaker could need, yet still preserving traditions and ways that go too far back to know exactly when they started, it is simply perfection.

Wander through the alleys and roads, seeking out a restaurant where you can enjoy some first-class Mediterranean cuisine, before retiring to one of the many bars that populate the seafront. Sitting with the locals outside and enjoying the feel of the breeze on your face, it's almost possible to pretend that this is all there is to life. Add to this the picturesque windmills with their sails spinning gently in the breeze atop the hills well beyond the town and you've got Mykonos in your mind. It only takes one extra step to make it a reality.
