Turkish cruising

THE 170-passenger luxury yacht Star Flyer will open new horizons in July and August with visits to a string of tiny ports in the acclaimed Turkish Riviera, often inaccessible to big ships.

A true clipper ship that blends the romance of sail with on-board pampering, the 110m Star Flyer will operate three Secret Turkey seven-night round-trip fly-cruise/stay cruises from the Greek Island of Rhodes on July 17 and 31 and on August 14.

Prices start at $5599 from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth and include return flights to Athens with Emirates, one-night at the Plaka Hotel in Athens and an Olympic Airways flight from Athens to Rhodes.

Ports of call off the beaten track include Olympus, first settled in 200BC; the stunning cliff-top city of Antalya; Kemer; and the two most popular havens for yachtsmen, Kekova and Gocek.
