Overview

Exodus Cruises is proud to present a brand-new collection of small-ship, eight-night cruises, offering Jewish holidaymakers an opportunity to travel with like-minded people to exceptional destinations, in comfort and safety.

Hotel Grande Bretagne

We are very pleased to offer Exodus Cruise guests the chance to stay in what is arguably the finest hotel in Athens. Conveniently located in the heart of the city, opposite the Greek Parliament, with breathtaking views of the Acropolis, Syntagma Square and lush Lycabettus Hill.

Tour of Athens

Exodus Cruises welcomes our guests to begin their journey through the Jewish Heritage of Greece with a fascinating Athens Tour. The centre of Athens represents a harmonious blend of past and present. The city’s legacy of ancient monuments plays a leading role in the centuries-old history of Athens; today, a vibrant European capital.

Guides

Our exceptional team of licensed guides brings to your cruise experience a deep knowledge of Greek Jewish heritage, giving life to the vibrant role of the Romaniote and Sephardic communities of the past. Jewish presence in Greece dates back to antiquity and follows the tumultuous course of the country’s history to the present day.

Jewish History of Greece

The Jewish History of Greece dates back thousands of years and has played a prominent role in the country’s rich, multi-cultural heritage.  As far back as the 4th century BCE, an account by Clearchus of Soli describes an encounter between the famous Greek philosopher, Aristotle (4th century BCE) and a Jewish sage while travelling in Asia Minor.

South Aegean

8-Night Cruise
April-October 2021

The Windmills of Mykonos

The Aegean islands are famously known for their beauty, charm and enticing crystal waters. Exodus Cruises’ South Aegean Cruise is designed to give you a relaxing and memorable holiday in the sun and sea of Greece with visits to Jewish Heritage sites on the islands of Delos, Crete, Aegina with stops at Mykonos, Santorini and mainland destinations. Enjoy a harmonious balance between conventional cruising and private yachting, with an opportunity to learn about Greece’s ancient bond with Judaism, through on-board lectures and visits to sites ashore. An exciting voyage of discovery, in more than one sense.

New Cruises

8-Night Cruises
2022

To tell the full story of Jewish history in Greece, we have to open the horizon to include areas in the north, focusing on Thessaloniki and Veria with stops in Chalkis and other less known places en route, picked for their charm and allure. Also, to the west coast and the Ionian Sea, including a visit to Ioannina, which has another fascinating Jewish story to tell, combined with visits to a host of beautiful Ionian islands too gorgeous to miss. These new eight-night cruises will be in operation from April 2022 and bookings can be confirmed from now.

Jewish life in Greece would not be complete without including the beautiful island of Rhodes, where the Jewish community traces its history back to the second century B.C.E. A Rhodes itinerary is already under development and will be available as a fourth cruise option later in 2022 – We’ll keep you posted about this in the website.

North Aegean

This cruise highlights Thessaloniki, known as ‘mother of Israel’ for its cultural and educational contributions to the Jewish world and other enchanting places on route, which although less known, will nevertheless, be sure to delight and entertain.
