Excellent staff, boat, and amenities

By far the crew was the most impressive part of this cruise. And of course the Itinerary they choose was excellent. Our room was large and very adequate. The hot tub was not working but I am sure they will get it fixed asap. If its a big deal to you then you should ask. But to us that was minor and the entire cruise was excellent thanks in the most part to the crew.

Five Star Experience!

If you like boats, you will love the Elysium. Décor is tasteful, systems are ship shape, and the boat is solid in weather. Plus it has a bar, and a beautiful bartender. We experienced Meltemi winds (Google that) causing a change in our agenda from the Cyclades to the Ionian islands. We didn't mind the change at all because every day brought the unexpected, finishing up with a passage through the Corinth Canal. This was a couples trip, a 40th anniversary. My wife does not dive, and I spend a lot time on dive liveaboards without her. So the Elysium was a great way for us to share that small-boat, time-on the-sea-experience. We both loved it, 5 stars, thank you.

Great crew and wonderful islands to visit

It is hard to select a highlight since the smaller islands were such a treat. The last island we visited was Serifos, an island that was just as the travel photos show the Greek isles.

Cruising in small yacht is best way to see Greek Islands and Elysium team did a fantastic job getting us to some small islands for the charm and big islands for the sites.

Highlights for me were the swim stops on great beaches, along with Beach BBQ; The hike and jump into Devils Eye swim hole; Loved our late-night dinners and wondering walks in Mykonos, Santorini and Naxos.

Recommended for
1 - We saw 10 islands on this trip; 2- Staying overnight in a few ports to allowed for great dinners, and late night shopping and dancing; 3 - The charisma of our Bartender/DJ on-board was fantastic.

Greek Islands in Comfort

Visiting the smaller islands. Swim Stops on private, deserted beaches. BBQ on beach. Meeting interesting, well-travelled guests. Being treated as family by the staff from the Captain to the lowliest crew. Breakfast, buffet lunches and dinners and A La Carte dinner.

Old vessel - smell of fumes inside the cabin the whole time:

Crew didn’t acknowledge the fumes problem. Pretend it doesn’t exist, no matter to whom or how many times we’ve complained.
