The initial cruise plan was: Venice (day 1), Bari (day 2), Katokalon/Olympia (day 3), Santorini (day 4), Mykonos (day 4 & 5), Piraeus/Athens (day 5), Corfu (day 6), Dubrovnik (day 7), Venice (day 8).

Due to the inclement weather along the route, the captain changed the plan to: Venice, Bari, Katokalon/Olympia, Piraeus/Athens, Corfu, Dubrovnik, Venice. Obviously, we never made it to Santorini and Mykonos which was a huge disappointment for everyone on board.

After Athens (day 4), the attempt was made to try again for Santorini and Mykonos, but due to the persistently bad weather, the ship ended up the whole day in safe harbour near the port of Nafplio.

Nafplio (Modern Greek: Ναύπλιο, Nafplio) (although English continues to employ Nafplion, Navplion, and Nauplia as well) is a seaport town in the Peloponnese in Greece that has expanded up the hillsides near the north end of the Argolic Gulf. The town was the first capital of modern Greece, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. Nafplio is now the capital of the regional unit of Argolis. Source: Wikipedia.
