Elysium Yacht
Elixir Boutique Cruises is set to launch its first 50 person yacht offering a range of rejuvenating journeys around the Greek isles.

The 25-cabin ‘Elysium’ will take its passengers to some of Greece’s most exquisite, and often unseen pristine coves and beaches only accessible by private yacht.

Guests are promised the services of a traditional cruise ship with the luxury of a private yacht and, on board, there is a dedicated spa, and a boutique gym. The sun deck lounging area is equipped with loungers, slumber sofas, a hot tub and telescope.
Snorkeling equipment, glass bottom kayaks and SUPs are at guests’ disposal, with water skiing and flyboard available on request.

“These journeys will be suitable for solo travellers, couples, friends and families, who can choose to be as active, relaxed, sociable or reflective as they like all whilst making long lasting memories with like-minded fellow guests,” said the Chairman of The Cruise Line Ltd.

“They can not only discover one of the oldest civilisations in the world, but learn new crafts, enjoy wellness treatments, massages, meditate at sunset, enjoy a glass of chilled wine on the sundeck, hike a volcano, cook with locals, snorkel, stargaze or just simply relax, unwind and rejuvenate with a good book during their voyage!”
