Board the Royal Helena in an ancient port of Piraeus, Greece and embark on a beautiful journey across the Mediterranean Sea, all the way to Lisbon, Portugal. Sail between the coasts of North Africa and South Europe, cross the Gibraltar Strait and set course for North, up the Portugese coast to Lisbon – a city of Fado and long maritime traidtions. You can book a berth in a double LUX cabin for €1,280. Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older.

Ports

Piraeus is a port city located 12 kilometres from Athens city center. Piraeus is the chief port in Greece and also the largest passenger port in Europe. While you are here, go and have a look at the impressive Church of Saint Nicholas or take a tour in the Nautical Museum of Greece. And if you want to walk you can go on archaeological tours.

Lisbon has a long and varied history as a major trading hub, much of which is still visible in the old city centre. Discover Alfama, the old quarters with its many old alleys, steps and the Lisbon Cathedral. The famous tram line 28 will get you there – an experience in and of itself. And be sure to check out a fado concert if you want to learn about saudade – loss, yearning and comfort, all rolled into one. Emotions that all seafarers will get to know one way or the other…
