It's no surprise that the successful super-low-price cruise line has added Greece to its lineup - its founder, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, is a native son.
The 3-day version is only about $60 per person for the full three days. The "about" is because I'm converting the 30 pounds British pricing into dollars using a pessimistic, mythical $2 per pound exchange rate - it actually works out to be a bit less.
Stops on the full 14-day version of the cruise include Athens. Mykonos, Paros, Ios, Milos, Amorgos, Naxos, Folegandros, Sifnos and Serifos, a great combination of perky major tourist stops and remote Greek islands.
This one will fill up fast and cruising Greece will never be the same again, because this is only the beginning of what easyCruise has planned for Greece. I'm not sure what your mortgage is, but I think I can rent out my house and go on this cruise and come out ahead. Can you afford to stay home?
Okay, airfare is not included, it is a barebones cruise experience, you will be buying food on board or feeding yourself in town during the generous layovers on the islands, and if you need a luxury cabin, this isn't it. But if you've traveled on Greek ferries and enjoyed it, this is perfect for you - a floating bed that accompanies you to your destination.
