Port of Delos

Delos is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located not far from Mykonos in the Cyclades archipelago of Greece. Delos cruises give travelers the chance to explore a less-traveled Greek island destination -- there are no land-based accommodations on this pristine isle.

Once a major commercial and trading center during the Classical era, Delos has an array of archeological treasures, from a partially reconstructed marble theater to ancient temples. For cruisers interested in Ancient Greece, Delos is an extraordinary destination. After all, the tiny island is the storied birthplace of Apollo and Artemis.
