Make new discoveries in the Greek Islands on the Galileo.

You won’t find another cruise ship quite like the Galileo. The old-world charm of this classic steel Motor Sailer is unmatched in the Mediterranean. Although the engine usually propels the 48-metre (157-foot) ship at a cruising speed of 11 knots, island hopping with the sails raised is always an inviting option. Grab a drink and sit under the shade of the rigging on the deck, or enjoy a meal in the indoor dining room of elegant wood and leather finish. Travelling on a smaller boat means we can pull up to the ports away from tourists and swim in Mediterranean waters without another ship in sight.

Ship features

The Galileo accommodates up to 49 guests in 25 cabins, with a crew of up to 18. Sample local cuisine from the comfort of the indoor dining room, or enjoy the seaside views from the outdoor bar and lounge. The indoor lounge features an American bar, where you can share a drink with your fellow passengers. The sundeck comes complete with lounges and chairs, and umbrellas for a sensible spot of shade.
