Gimme Gimme Gimme –a Star Clippers Mamma Mia Cruise
Star Clippers have launched the Mamma Mia itinerary exploring the Greek Islands where the first film was shot.
There are four dates with departures from Piraeus on 18 May, June 8, June 29, 17 August 2019. The experience will take passengers to a range of Greek island destinations aboard the Star Flyer including the islands of Skiathos and Skopelos.
Skiathos offers over sixty golden beaches to explore yet it is the old harbour which played the part in Mamma Mia. This is where Sam’s race with Harry took place, with the two characters running to reach the boat that would take them to the neighbouring island of Kalokairi. Skiathos is also home to the clock tower where Sophia posts the wedding invitations.
The billowing sails will then take you on to the next romantic location of Skopelos. Several places on the island of Skopelos featured throughout Mamma Mia including some of the key scenes. Kastani Beach with its turquoise waters is where Tanya sang ‘Does your Mother Know’, as well as being the location where Sophie and Sky sang both ‘Lay all your Love on Me’ and ‘I Have a Dream’.
Elsewhere, you can discover Nisi Glisteri, which is the clifftop where ‘Our Last Summer’ was performed. You can also visit the Agios Ioannis Prodomos Monastery – one of the island’s most beautiful landmarks and the location in which the wedding scene was filmed. A short 105-step climb from the Agios Ioannis Beach will take you to the small chapel, where you can also enjoy mesmerising views out to sea.
In addition to these two islands, this Eastern Mediterranean sailing will take you to a range of destinations including Athens, the sleepy Turkish beach town of Dikili, the town of Myrina on the Greek island of Limnos, and the Greek island of Poros.
Relive the Classic hits from ABBA, stunning Greek island destinations and the places where a star-studded cast consisting of Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Julie Walters collectively made Mamma Mia undoubtedly one of the best films of all time.
Priced from $2,999 per person, the seven night Mamma Mia sailing includes double occupancy, including shipboard accommodation, all meals, onboard entertainment, ship’s watersports programme, gratuities and port charges.
