South Aegean

8-Night Cruise

Spring - Autumn 2023

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

North Aegean & Ionian Sea

8-Night Cruises
Spring 2024

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.
