If you have yet to visit the world-famous island of Mykonos, you might consider a voyage with Oceania Cruises through the Greek Islands. A favorite playground of the international jet-set, Mykonos will serve as host to Nautica once again next week (for a return engagement) and to Marina and Insignia this fall. Last week Nautica played peekaboo with our photographer as the ship’s guests were able to explore this 33-square-mile island on a gorgeous, sunny day.
Mere moments from the ship, sunseekers chose to enjoy one of the white sandy beaches of Mykonos as Nautica watched from the dock near Mykonos Town, also known as Chora in Greek.
The design of a water source in town is as enchanting as the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea, and the island’s architecture boldly stands out against the vivid blue of the soaring skies.
Add some color to the whitewashed architecture equation, and Mykonos delivers memorable postcard-perfect pictures.
The town’s pathways twist about and create a pleasurable maze for any explorer seeking Mykonos’ charm. The island is an Oceania Cruises favorite with its historic windmills, affection for its pelican friends, and club atmosphere that draws thousands who want to dance the day and night away. If your ship has a late departure, be sure to watch the sunset from a local pub…it’s magical.
