Island Hopping pt. 2 – Syros, Greece

We boarded our ship as it sat calmly on the Mediterranean water. This was my first time aboard a cruise ship. The ship was modest but welcoming in its decor, we would be spending such little time aboard as we hopped across the Greek Islands that it is all that was needed.

After enjoying lunch aboard the ship we set sail for our next stop, Syros a beautiful island packed full of greek heritage. We meandered the white marble streets where bellowing bright pink blooms hung beautifully over boutique doorways, our guide took us around some of the most breath taking buildings and churches that still stood seemingly immaculate after many years. The attention to detail in Greek architecture from intricately tiled floors to painstakingly handcarved statues and columns meant with every look there was something new for our eyes to feast upon.

Following our tour of the main town in Syros we sat down to dinner at a beautifully crisp white open air restaurant which felt like it was situated with in the sea, only separated by a wall which was constantly stroked by the waves as they broke. The food too came in waves and we enjoyed delicious local cuisine and produce until we could consume no more and finally returned to the boat for our first night on the water.

Next stop – Cesme, Turkey.

    The pictures are great. My first time on a cruise ship was when going from Florida to Bahamas, it was really fun. Glad you’re enjoying.

    The colours of Greece have always attracted me! The beautiful white houses, blue water and sky, bright flowers and even brighter people… How lovely that you’ve been able to visit such a nice place, and what an experience – a cruise ship! Looking forward to read about your next stops! xo Romy

    Also of interest perhaps is that there is a direct ferry link to Kea from Syros. You will probably not find many package holiday deals to Syros on any of the major holiday company sites – so the way to do it might be to book a cheap holiday to say Santorini or Mykonos and then go off on the ferry for a few days island hopping including perhaps a visit to Syros.
