Greece is a party to the Schengen Agreement. U.S. citizens may enter Greece for up to 90 days for tourist or business purposes without a visa. Your passport should be valid for at least three months beyond the period of stay. We recommend that your passport be valid for at least six months whenever you travel abroad to avoid unintended travel disruptions.
You need sufficient funds and a return airline ticket. For additional details about travel into and within Schengen countries, please see our Schengen Fact Sheet.
If you are traveling with a U.S. official or diplomatic passport, you MUST obtain a Schengen visa prior to arrival. Travelers arriving with official or diplomatic passports without visas will not be allowed to enter the country.

Confirmation requires a 50% deposit. The balance should be paid 30 days prior to the cruise unless it is otherwise agreed.
If your cruise / course is canceled due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID 19 spread, your deposit / payment, according to the European and Greek law, is valid for the next 18 months.
Nevertheless, according to our business policy it is valid for a sailing cruise anytime in the future.
Also, if there is another “force majeure” situation and consequent flight cancelations / restrictions of traveling, the cruise will be rescheduled and your deposit will be used for the new dates.
In any other case of cancelation, deposits and payments are not refundable unless the canceled position is covered by someone else.
