How to pronounce Cycladic?

I'd like to say it correctly next week when I tell my coworkers I just booked a trip to the Cycladic Islands!

But in Greece they pronounce it with a hard "C" -- there used to be a ferry to those islands called the Kyklades (key-klah-dees).

I have heard it always pronounce by Greeks as Key-klath-eez. By English-speaking people as Sick-la-deez.

Sorry Marilyn I misunderstood---I didn't even think that her co-workers were Greek. We, Americans just expect her to be e-mailing from USA. OOPS!!
