Below is the address of the location where your trip starts.

Your Topdeck Sailing Rep will be waiting for you on your boat. Finding your boat will be difficult due to the large number of boats in the harbour – so keep an eye out for Katarina line staff, who will be able to direct you! They will be walking up and down the port in light blue branded T-shirts.

A gulet is a traditional twin-mast wooden cruising vessel that originates from the south west coast of Turkey. Gulets vary in length, height, depth and breadth, and it is believed that no two are identical. They range in size typically from 14 to 35 metres, and can comfortably carry/sleep between eight and 30 people. Nowadays, gulets are not rigged for sailing, however all possess diesel engines of varying horsepower. As such, this is not strictly a 'sailing' trip – but an unmissable cruise, all the same!

 Your boat:

 Meltemi

 Built in Halicarnassus in 1990, the beautiful 26-metre-long Meltemi gulet boat has had a few renovations and updates over the years – making it super stylish and ready to cruise the Aegean Sea, Topdeck-style.

 With a total of eight double cabins, the Meltemi can comfortably carry up to 22 passengers – and each cabin comes complete with an ensuite and air conditioning.

 Not only that, but the Meltemi has a dedicated living space for crew, a fully furnished kitchen, indoor and outdoor areas for eating and relaxing, and an American bar. Awww yeah!

 If you’re looking to travel in comfort and luxury, this boat is the one for you. Welcome aboard!

 Boat Crew

 Your motor sailer will have three or four crew members, including a captain, a deckhand and a chef – all of whom will do their utmost to ensure your cruise is the highlight of your experience in Greece. The captain will be responsible for the gulet while at sea, so it’s important that you heed his advice at all times for your own safety. All of our captains come from the local area and have been sailing this coastline for many years – so you can rest assured that you’re in capable hands!

 Your Cabin

 Couples, and those who have booked together, will share a private cabin. Some cabins have double beds, some have twin beds and some have bunk beds – and we have some triple cabins, too. Single travellers will share a cabin with another single traveller of the same sex. Your cabin will have enough space for your baggage, and every room will have its own ensuite. Remember: water is limited on boats, so ensure that you use it sparingly!

On all of our trips, we prearrange a handful of Optional Activities that we think will enhance your travel experience. However, these activities are not included in the cost of your trip, and you have a choice as to whether or not you will participate. Optional Activities are usually organised on a group participation basis and should be taken into consideration when budgeting your spending money.

None of the Optional Activities on your trip are operated by Topdeck, nor do they form part of your trip contract with Topdeck. Topdeck arranges all Optional Activities as an agent of the local supplier. Should you participate in any Optional Activities, your contract will be with the local supplier and their conditions will apply.

Please note: while we make every effort to keep these prices as accurate and up to date as possible, they are subject to change. In rare circumstances, the actual price may vary slightly to what is published here.

Please note: the availability of optional activities is dependent on sailing times. As sailing times can vary, we cannot guarantee that there will be enough time for all departures to participate in the above mentioned optionals.

On your trip, all breakfasts and lunches will be included (except breakfast on the first day and lunch on the last day). However, no evening meals are included – so you’re free to go and explore each port or town you dock in!

Please note: Lunch will not be served on Saturday arrival. Evening meals are at your own expense, and you will find different options in each port or town.

Please note: You cannot bring your own drinks on board the motor sailer. All drinks, including water, are sold on the boat at reasonable prices. If you bring any alcohol on board, the captain and crew have the right to confiscate it.

Please note: At Topdeck we always consider our customers’ health and safety. We ask that you drink responsibly and bear in mind that in some countries, alcohol measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Consider your limits – and remember that Greece is a beautiful country, which is hard to see while feeling ill!

If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your needs – as long as you advise your travel agent or Customer Service Consultant when you book. You can also make a note of dietary requirements in the Topdeck app when you check in.

Please note: although we will do everything in our power to cater to your needs, we cannot guarantee that this will be possible in every restaurant we visit. We also cannot cater for tastes or dislikes.

Your Topdeck crew never expect tips themselves and will not ask for any; that’s not what friends do! We also know how much tipping can cost you. So go ahead, spoil yourself with the money you will save by travelling with Topdeck (just don’t forget Mum’s souvenir).

Our travel app has landed! With a range of awesome features including a Currency Converter, Budget Tracker, Check-In tool and Social Timeline you can plan your trip like a pro. Think of it like your very own Topdeck Trip Leader, always on call with the latest info, weather, maps and city guides to give you the trip of a lifetime, all in the palm of your hand.

Please note: The Topdeck Travel App should only be downloaded once you have booked onto your trip. You will not be able to log in unless you have a Topdeck Booking Reference Number.

One of the best parts of travelling is experiencing the nightlife and entertainment each city has to offer. However, amidst the fun and excitement, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and personal safety as well. Before you hit the road with us, it’s important to be aware of the following:

When you’re on a night out, remember to avoid walking alone, particularly through deserted areas like beaches and back streets. Always stick together, take a taxi where possible, and keep a note of your accommodation details so you can find your way back to your fellow Topdeckers if you become separated.

In some countries, alcoholic measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Try to keep track of what you’re drinking, and if you see one of your trip mates looking a little worse for wear, take them back to your accommodation. Be cautious when accepting drinks from strangers and never leave your drink unattended.

It’s also important to be aware that what you might consider harmless flirting may be interpreted differently in some countries. Be yourself and have fun, but don’t be naïve, and be mindful of the signals you are sending out so that you don’t find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.

Toilets

While on board the boat, we request that you do not flush anything ‘inorganic’ down the toilet other than paper. It only takes one small unflushable item to block the system and create an unpleasant environment for everyone on board!

Unflushable items include, but are not limited to, the following: paper towels, baby wipes/wet wipes, cotton balls and feminine products. Long story short: if it’s not toilet paper, then it shouldn't go down the toilet!

Boat showers

Every boat has hot water available, so you can rest assured that you’ll be able to freshen up with a nice hot shower after spending your day swimming in the Aegean Sea. Hot water supplies on board are limited, so please use it sparingly when washing and showering to ensure there’s plenty to go around for everyone.

Power

In Greece, standard European two-prong plugs are used (CEE7/16).

Please note: There will be electricity when the engine is running so this is the best time to charge your electronic devices! A generator may be available overnight but this is not guaranteed.

Finances

The currency in Greece is the Euro.

ATMs/cash points are available all over Greece. All major credit cards are accepted in Greece, however some smaller shops and restaurants may only accept cash so be sure to have some handy.

Please note: The optional activities and bar tabs can only be paid in cash.

Nights out

One of the best parts of travelling is experiencing the nightlife and entertainment each city has to offer. However, amidst the fun and excitement, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and personal safety as well. Before you hit the water with us, be sure to familiarise yourself with the following safety information.

When you’re on a night out, remember to avoid walking alone, particularly through deserted areas like beaches and back streets. Always stick together, take a registered taxi where possible, and keep a note of where your boat is docked so you can find your way back to your fellow Topdeckers if you become separated. It’s also a good idea to get your Topdeck trip mates’ mobile numbers in case you need to get hold of them while out and about.

In some countries, alcoholic measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Try to keep track of what you’re drinking, and if you see one of your trip mates looking a little worse for wear, take them back to the boat. Never leave your drink unattended.

It’s also important to be aware that what you might consider harmless flirting may be interpreted differently in some countries. Be yourself and have fun, but stay savvy – you don’t want to find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.

Respecting fellow passengers

Here at Topdeck, we’re all about inclusivity. We want to make sure that everyone has a great time on our trips, and that everyone feels like they’re part of one happy Topdeck family.

What we’re not about is excluding people or making them feel like they don’t belong – that’s just not what families do. That’s why we always encourage Topdeckers to be kind and courteous to their fellow passengers. The golden rules? Always remember to respect each other’s space, be mindful of causing excessive noise in shared accommodation and treat others how you’d wish to be treated yourself. Easy!

Drug use

Topdeck has a strict zero tolerance drug policy. Passengers should not bring any illegal substances onto the Topdeck boat or into any of the accommodation we stay in on our trips. All instances of drug possession will be reported to Topdeck Head Office, who may consider alerting the relevant authorities.

Mental health and wellbeing

Culture shock, homesickness, random periods of feeling down – these things happen and are totally normal. You can rest assured that if you’re feeling low, your Topdeck crew will do their utmost to cheer you up again.

Measures you can take to look after your mental health and wellbeing while on the road with us are:

  • Call home. Sometimes it’s nice to hear a familiar voice and have a good old-fashioned catch up with your loved ones

  • Eat well. Never underestimate the power of a good, wholesome meal. Nobody feels at their best when they’re hungry!

  • Drink responsibly. Not only will you swerve the dreaded hangover, but by keeping an eye on what you drink, you could also avoid getting into any potentially uncomfortable situations

  • Talk to your Trip Leader. Don’t forget, they’re probably far from home, too – so they’re sure to know of some tried-and-tested ways to beat the blues

  • Integrate with your fellow Topdeckers. This one is key! The more fun you’re having on your trip, the less likely you are to feel homesick (trust us).

How to be a responsible travelle

Responsible travel isn’t difficult to achieve. With a little conscious thought and preparation, you can have an awesome holiday AND have a positive impact on the places you visit. Sweet!

Here are five things you can do to ensure you’re travelling responsibly:

  • Conserve water. You know the drill – reuse your towels, take short showers and remember to turn off the tap when you’re brushing your teeth!

  • Reduce your waste. Ditch the plastic bag, refuse unnecessary packaging, dispose of your waste responsibly and recycle as much as possible.

  • Go local. Hunt down locally owned and operated restaurants and bars, shop in local markets and book tours and activities run by local guides.

  • Consider the wildlife. Avoid any attractions that involve performing animals, animal rides or closely engaging with wild animals.

  • Respect local people and culture. Obeying local laws is a given – but also remember to dress and behave in a manner appropriate to the community. Be polite and keep an open mind!

What to Bring

The golden rule is to travel as light as you can, only bring what you really need and leave plenty of space for things you might want to buy. Your cabin will be far more pleasant without large suitcases taking up precious space!

The following is a suggested clothing list only:

  • 1 pair of comfortable walking shoes

  • 1 pair of smart casual shoes

  • 1 pair of thongs/jandals/flip-flops

  • 2 pairs jeans/trousers

  • 2 pairs shorts/skirts

  • 4 shirts/T-shirts

  • 1 sweaters/jumpers

  • Swimming costume

  • Smart casual evening wear

  • 1 rainproof jacket

  • Underwear and socks

  • Towel (you will be provided with a towel for showering, but not for swimming)

  • Toiletries

  • Hat and sunscreen

  • Basic medical kit (including plasters, aspirin, sea sickness tablets etc)

  • Insect repellent

  • Conversion plug

Please note: some religious sites (such as cathedrals and mosques) require clothing that covers the knees, chest and shoulders.

Insurance

Before your trip departs, it’s compulsory for all passengers to take out comprehensive travel insurance covering cancellation, medical expenses (including repatriation), loss or damage to baggage and personal belongings, money and personal liability.

World Nomads provides comprehensive travel insurance for people from over 140 countries. For more information, visit www.topdeck.travel/travel-insurance.

You must show your insurance policy to your Topdeck rep at check-in so that they can make a record of your details. Key details are the name of the insurance company, the 24hr emergency telephone number and your policy number. You cannot board the boat without these details.

Passports and Visas

Please make sure your passport is valid for at least six months after the last day of your trip. Some countries will refuse entry if you do not have at least six months validity remaining on your passport after your departure date. Depending on your nationality, you may require a visa to enter certain countries.

It is your responsibility to obtain visas prior to your trip departure. To determine which visas you’ll need, you can consult either your own government’s website or the government websites of the countries in which you will be travelling. We also have a chart on our website listing the visas required for some nationalities travelling on our trips. To check it, visit www.topdeck.travel/visas.

Please note: some visas can take up to six weeks to acquire, so don’t leave it until the last minute. Also, bear in mind that the validity of a visa often runs from its date of issue rather than the date of entry into the country. Please check with the appropriate embassy/embassies prior to departure, as requirements do change periodically.

Health and Safety

We want to make sure you’re having the time of your life while travelling with us. Therefore, if you suffer from any medical conditions or allergies, you will need to let us know – either at the time of booking your trip, or at least six weeks prior to your trip departure date.

If you require regular medication, you must ensure that you have a sufficient supply before your trip departs, as it may be difficult to obtain it while travelling. Topdeck reps are unable to administer any medication, and there are no guarantees that there will be anyone with first aid training on board – so you will also need to ensure that you can administer your own medication.

Vaccinations

There are currently no compulsory vaccinations required for any of the countries this trip visits. However, please confirm this with your GP or health professional before you leave as conditions can change.

  • Passport (with visas if required!)

  • Airline tickets (where applicable)
