Mandy Connell Cruise – The Greek Islands

Greece is not only one of the most important historical places in the world, it also happens to be one of the most beautiful. Instead of peering down from the railing of a big cruise liner, we’re going to be right in the middle of it. We’re going to visit ports you simply can’t get to on the big ships, and we also have the luxury of tucking into a secluded cove or two (or ten) for a quick swim when we want to. The ship is OURS!

From Athens to Santorini to Mykonos, you will experience Greece up close and personal. We’ll enjoy Greek food and culture and take some time to appreciate the history and art as well. I can’t wait to get to know you, and I promise you and Chuck will be BFFs by the end (he is SO much more entertaining than I am). I learned so much about Europe on our last trip but am really ready to see where it ALL began.

In conclusion, you need to go on this trip. No, you MUST go on this trip. I can’t wait to meet you!

Yassou, (that means hello or goodbye in Greek)
