Fly free to Europe in 2022 and sail the turquoise-blue waters of the Aegean and Mediterranean on three back-to-back cruises aboard two of the world’s largest sailing ships as part of three new fly, triple cruise and stay packages released exclusively by Australia’s leading small ship cruise specialists, Cruise Traveller.
Offering savings of up to A$8380 per couple, the three new packages in June and September, 2022, will see Australians sail with Star Clippers, which operates three deluxe and modern sailing ships. The vessels include the elegant, 170-guest Star Flyer and the mighty 227-guest Royal Clipper which is currently the world’s largest fully-rigged sailing ship, with five masts, 42 sails, 1765 square-metres of open deck space and three pools.
Two of the packages feature the picture-perfect Greek islands of Skopelos and Skiathos where the hit Abba music movie, Mamma Mia, was filmed in 2007, starring Meryl Streep. Guests can visit locations on both islands where the movie was filmed including the tiny wedding chapel of Agios Ioannis on Skopelos which is perched dramatically on top of a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea, with 202 steps leading up to it.
The first package – ‘Aegean Flyer 2022’, starting on June 9, 2022, is a 22-night itinerary featuring three back-to-back cruises aboard Star Flyer in the Aegean. The round-trip from Athens features 16 idyllic islands and destinations in Greece and Turkey including Skopelos and Skiathos and the sun-drenched islands of Santorini and Mykonos. Including a night in Athens at the start of the holiday, 21-night cruise and free flights from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth, the package is available from A$9735 per person, twin-share – a saving of A$2665 if booked by November 30, 2020.
The second package – “Grand Greece, Turkey and Croatia 2022’, beginning June 23, 2022, is a 26-night itinerary from Athens to Venice featuring three back-to-back cruises on the Aegean and Adriatic seas aboard Star Flyer. Guests will visit 21 postcard-worthy destinations in Greece – including Skopelos and Skiathos – as well as Croatia, Italy and Montenegro. Including a night in Athens before the cruise, 25-night voyage and free flights from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth, the package is available from A$11,565 per person, twin-share – a saving of A$4190 if booked by November 30, 2020.
Cruise Traveller’s third package – ‘Mediterranean Sails 2022’, starting September 22, 2022, is a 27-night Mediterranean holiday from Cannes on the French Riviera to Lisbon in Portugal featuring three back-to-back cruises aboard the 135m-long sailing ship, Royal Clipper.
