I went to the Greek Islands in 1998 and had a great time.
I was in Athens for a few days and took a very nice sight seeing cruise (3 islands in one day) that was great.
I also spent another week or two on Santorini, Mykonos and Corfu but it was an organized tour so I didn't have to worry about booking accomodations. I had a great time and would love to go back
Having a cabin on the overnight ferry was well worth it.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
