Program Cost

The cost of the program is dependent upon the cabin category you choose for the cruise portion.  Prices are per person and include the hotel, cruise, tour, photography instruction, transfers and all the other items listed above.

  • Category A = $4,456
  • Category B = $3,623
  • Category C = $3,306

There are port charges of $320 per person.

Single Supplement:  

  • Category A = $2,200
  • Category B = $1,850
  • Category C = $1,700

What’s a Single Supplement?

A Single Supplement is paid if you are traveling by yourself and you are in a hotel room and cabin by yourself.  The Program Cost rates listed above are per person in a shared cabin.  

Other costs?

Sure.  You've got to get to Athens, this doesn't include airfare.  

You should also expect to pay incidental expenses.  There are port charges - as stated above - but you also should consider gratuities for the crew which are customary, drinks while on board and anything you may want while visiting any of the islands.  Variety also offers land excursions which are optional but you'll find that they are all offered at a very reasonable price.  

Bottom line is that we found these incidental expenses very reasonable.
