The Elixir Concept

Elixir Cruises is about boutique cruising redefined.

It’s about unique journeys of discovery of new places and a new you. It’s about fun, relaxation and exciting cultural experiences. It’s about small ship cruising at its best.

A completely new concept at sea.

Featured in numerous international publications and hailed in The Sunday Times as “the new boutique cruise company that feels like being on a private yacht” and listed among the 10 best small ship cruises in the world, we offer a holistic approach that embraces mind, body and soul. 

The Elysium and the Gemaya sail the GREEK ISLANDS in the summer and select destinations promptly announced in the winter months, taking you on beautiful immersive journeys that rejuvenate, exhilarate and educate you.

Join us solo, as a couple, with friends or with family. Be active or relaxed. Be as sociable or as private as you like. Make life long memories, life long friends, or both. Whichever way you choose, be prepared to embark on one of the most fascinating and enriching experiences of your life.

Elixir Balance Concept©

The Elixir Balance Concept© is based on two ancient Greek principles.

That a healthy mind resides within a healthy body and that balance is achieved when all is in good measure.


I can’t say enough about how wonderful our cruise of the Cyclades was aboard Elixir Cruises. The smaller vessel allowed us to see parts of the Greek Islands we would have missed on a bigger boat. We had glorious swim stops each day, often at deserted beaches. The crew was warm, welcoming and friendly and took excellent care of the passenger. The food was delicious.

A dream cruise with a dream team. It was like being on a private yacht with a staff that is there to make you feel like royalty. Every attention brings you closer to nirvana. The food was great, the drinks reasonably priced and the excursions interesting.The destination is the boat and its people itself, along with a deep blue sea and bright sunshine.

My husband and I had a fabulous time on the Elysium. The crew made our trip a most memorable experience. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. The ship is small enough to experience a personalized cruise and big enough to have space for relaxation and dining. The chef picked up fresh produce and seafood on each island and created delectable meals. This is by far the best way to tour the Greek Isles!

The crew fantastic, food was always delicious and always very plentiful, drinks, daily journeys, experiences, massage is a must, the warmth the crew had given us, the friendships from around the world….WOW!!! I will never forget this trip and I plan to return with my family next year.

Last week we experienced an outstanding vacation aboard the M/S Gemaya. We took the route visiting many cyclades islands.  The service on board was outstanding. Our crew spoiled us with excellent food (Vassilios), fantastic service (Maria and Despina), two sailors who where always helpful (Muhamad and Sherif). And last but not least our Captain (Stefanos) who guide us safely through the whole trip. Five stars for this trip.
