New this Summer: Elixir Wellness Cruises
With a maximum of 48 guests, Elixir Wellness Cruises’ new The Elysium is boutique cruising redefined. Visit pristine coves and beaches only accessible by private yacht; explore ancient towns and islands; find the inner you, set your own pace; play with our water toys; chill on deck with a cocktail; relax, unwind and rejuvenate. Greece awaits to soothe your soul and excite your senses.
Your time on The Elysium gives you the freedom to do as much – or as little – as you wish. From expert-led meditation sessions and yoga classes, to watersports and educational seminars, personal enrichment is at the heart of the Elixir experience. Included in the package is all advice and group yoga, pilates, aquarobics, meditation sessions with our qualified onboard Wellness Coach. Also access to the mini gym, use of fishing and snorkelling equipment and themed seminars.
The Elixir Balance Concept© is based on two ancient Greek principles. That a healthy mind resides within a healthy body and that balance is achieved when all is in good measure. On an Elixir cruise we give you the choice of 7 activity styles to mix and match, in order to tailor make your journey and aim for your own inner balance. These are:
Relaxing: Swimming of the back of the yacht, snorkelling, water sports, cocktail lounging, leisurely walks, Olive Grove hikes, Photographic meanders
Active: Horse riding options ashore, hiking, scuba diving
Wellness & Fitness: Daily group Pilates, yoga, meditation sessions and aquarobics, complimentary use of the gym, private bookable in-cabin spa treatments from the Gemaya Spa©
Educational: Learn to make worry beads and jewellery, archaeological seminar
Experiential: Cooking class with lunch at local home, Greek dance workshop, Greek Beach BBQ, Fishing with islanders, wine and olive oil tasting
Cultural: Byzantine churches, monasteries, medieval towns and villages, submerged long-lost cities, ancient ruins, temples and historic and archaeological landmarks
While you may choose a rigorous volcano hike in Santorini, your fellow passenger might prefer a massage at our indulging spa. While you may join a Greek cooking class with a local, another might prefer to enjoy a yoga session on the beach. While you may start your day with an aquarobics class, you may choose to end it with a chilled sunset cocktail at our outdoor lounge bar.
There is no right or wrong combination, it’s all a matter of personal preference and what your soul desires at the time. That is why no cruise with us can ever be the same, no matter how many times you join us. Our cruise concierge, in collaboration with our resident yoga, meditation, and wellness coach, will be more than happy to help you create the perfect plan, just for you.
And with two landfalls or island visits every day during our week-long Greek Islands voyages, each Elixir Wellness Cruise is itinerary rich! Our Cyclades itinerary includes visits to Sifnos, Milos, Ios, Santorini, Schoinousa, Antiparos, Naxos, Delos & Mykonos – whilst our Ancient Paths itinerary includes Chania (Crete), Kythra, Hydra, Spetses, Dokos, Egina, Pavlopetri and Egina.
Visit pristine coves and beaches, ancient towns and islands; find the inner you, set your own pace; play with our water toys, swim off the back of The Elysium, bask on deck, sip your favourite cocktail at sundown; relax, unwind and rejuvenate. Greece awaits you, ready to soothe your soul and excite your sense.
