Boutique Cruising Redefined
Set sail with Elixir Cruises and enjoy a boutique travel experience dedicated to wellbeing and immersive destination-led discovery.
Elixir Cruises is an entirely new concept at sea that combines authentic exploration of the stunning Greek Isles with ample opportunities for you to indulge your passions for meditation, yoga and wellbeing activities.
Sailing aboard Elixir’s yacht, The Elysium, you and no more than 48 likeminded guests will enjoy a cultural journey to several of the region’s best-loved gems and hidden treasures while savouring experiences designed to rejuvenate, exhilarate and educate.
The Elixir Balance Concept© summarises Elixir Cruises approach to travel. Founded on two ancient Greek principles, Elixir promotes the idea that a healthy mind resides within a healthy body and that balance is achieved when all is in good measure.
The Elixir Experience
The Elixir Cruises’ experience perfectly suits everyone from solo travellers to large groups and allows you the freedom to do as much - or as little - as you wish. From hiking volcanic trails in Santorini and Greek cooking lessons to massages and beach yoga sessions, Elixir promises a travel experience to bring balance and satisfaction to your soul.
Onboard The Elysium, you will stay in luxuriously appointed accommodation providing you with everything you will need for the duration of your voyage. In The Elysium’s restaurant - or outside dining area - you will enjoy the finest Mediterranean cuisine and wines. During the day, you’ll have the opportunity to make use of the yacht's public area, such as the sun deck, and the indoor lounging area, where you can watch movies, partake in seminars and meet up with new friends.
The service on a voyage with Elixir Cruises rival that which you would experience in one of the world’s finest boutique hotels. Throughout your time onboard, you will enjoy the hallmarks of Greek hospitality, with each and every member of staff more than happy to ensure an unforgettable time.
