Sailing Ship Cruises

If you want to experience a proper sailing holiday with an itinerary in the Mediterranean, sailing ship cruises may fit the bill. They will more than likely visit the Turkish, Croatian or Greek islands and will avoid the big cruise ports.

You can also charter your own yacht and sail your own itinerary if you have the right qualifications. Again these generally operate out of the Aegean coastal area.
