In general cruising around the Greek islands, I've found the "ROAD Edition" maps to be the most reliable, although not perfect. Their scale varies with the size of the island, but is usually 1:35,OOO or 1:40,000. Crete however is different, being 260 x 60 kilometres, and it seems that ROAD Editions only do it in 2 sheets (E and W) at 1:100,000.
The Anavasi atlas in the above link covers the island at 1:50,000 but it's a weighty tome to tote!
Perhaps if you get it in advance you can take out the pages that you're most likely to be using?
Worth checking Amazon for both publishers' output.
Do let us know what you decide, as I'm thinking of doing something similar this summer!
