In 2005, my mom treated me to a cruise of Greece as a graduation gift. She was able to get a lot of things discounted because of her work, so of course I said yes. I was only 17 and touring the Greecian islands.
At the moment, Greece isn’t as much of a tourist destination because of the financial troubles and riots taking place in the country. However, once things settle down a bit, Greece is a lovely destination. It’s also true that the riots and upheavals mostly take place on the mainland. The islands, while likely not untouched by economic woes, have not been affected by riots and would be a more pleasant destination for leisure travel. A cruise around the islands would then be ideal.
