If you’re in the market for a Greek island cruise then you will be pleasantly surprised

you will find that you visit Athens, Crete, Kos, Santorini and Mykonos and of course
Cruise liners vary in size and luxury but we found cruise.co.uk to offer some of the best deals around for booking a tailor made cruise. You will find most cruise ships stop off at chosen destinations for you to explore the islands and what they have to offer.
When docking in Rhodes town you will have the opportunity to explore this historic town and see everything it has to offer. Starting at Mandraki harbour you are just minutes away from the traditional Old Town of Rhodes, divided into 3 parts you will find the Turkish, Jewish and Knights quarter. The quarters are all unique in their own right and represent the chequered and colourful past of the island.
Enter through St Catherine’s gate and into the Knights quarter where you will find the palace of the Grand Master, which is now a museum holding fantastic collections of gold, excavated artefacts and frescos. You will also find the hospital of St John which again is another museum but well worth a look.
Grab a guidebook for exploring the Old Town or just get lost on the winding alleyways full of amazing architecture and small local cafes and bakers. Make sure you know how to get back though you don’t want the ship leaving without you.
There are a few other destinations you can visit when taking a cruise to Rhodes,
one such excursion is a visit to Tsambika beach, and this is a relatively quiet beach,
popular with locals and tourists alike. The warm sands of the beach shelf gently
into the crystal clear blue sea, a small Taverna offers up thirst quenching drinks
and a local man offers up water sports for the more adventurous. You can read more
about the area of Tsambika here, and the excursion usually lasts about 3 hours.
There are a few sightseeing and guided tours around the most popular sights on Rhodes including Lindos and its imposing hilltop Acropolis, this is one of the jewels of Rhodes and has to be the most popular place to visit for most holidaymakers.
