Greek islands that are high on the international travel radar include Santorini, Mykonos and Crete among others. Santorini for being the mecca of romance in the Mediterranean; a dramatic landscape brought about by the volcanic nature of the island. There will you find the most mesmerising sunset you’ve laid eyes on and colourful beaches, red, white and black that provide an entirely different scene to any other beach you may have ever seen. Mykonos island is known for being a capital for island partying. Cosmopolitan since the 1960s, it has been a favourite among the jet set crowds and a refuge for the artistic and flamboyant ones. It has a reputation for being the most expensive Greek island to stay on, and no unjustifiably so. So visiting the island as part of Greek island cruises could be the ideal alternative to experiencing this island in the most cost effective way. Crete, the largest Greek island, is known for a few things as it is so diverse; historical value and ancient landmarks, wonderful local gastronomy, heartfelt hospitality, incredible landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and quaint mountain settlements among others.
