Tour Cruising the Geek Islands

We would like to take an organized cruise around the Greek islands in the February-March timeframe. We would prefer something smaller than the thousand person cruise lines.
Suggestions for tour companies?

Is there a preferred time to go?
Thank you

Greece really isn't a cruise ship destination in the off season.
I just did a search and discovered The Norwegian Jade has a one night stop in Athens on March 3 and March 23. You might be happier with Itineraries in warmer climates.

After the GEEK island, make sure you visit the NERD island.

Sorry, I just had to.

Seriouisly, many of the Greek Island hotels and restaurants shut in the off season. February and March is off season.

The exception is Easter. Easter is a major holiday in Greece and everything will be swinging. Next year Easter is in early April. If I don't go this October, I'll be going back next April.

If you could arrange to be in Greece on Easter, it's a fun time.

By the way, that's Orthodox Easter (April 16, 2023)

Frank II - I think you’re confused. The Geek islands are just off the coast of the Nerderlands. Janet has the right idea about checking climate on a good website. I prefer timeanddate.com thanks to a suggestion from Acraven a few years back.

Greece can be a bit blustery in February/March still.
