Cyclades vs. Ionian Greek cruises

Jump to last reply

Looking at small ship cruises in Greece. I've read that the Ionian islands have much better weather as far as wind is concerned and that the "meltemi" in the Cyclades can be a horror.

Any advice? Thinking of going at the end of September and found a couple of cruises that have only about 22 cabins. I'd like to be able to take swims off the boat or stop at small beaches. But also want to be immersed in the ancient history.

Looking at "Viking Yacht Cruises" and others.
