Great small boat cruise.

The islands visited were all amazing. Each had a different vibe and we loved each one. The boat is older but was comfortable when the seas were calm. It rocked quite a lot when the winds and waves picked up. Staff was very friendly and took good care of us. The masseuse was incredible! We would have liked the cruise director to make announcements reminding us of what was happening. Overall it was a fantastic trip and made many new friends.

My wife an I invited two cousins from the Czech Republic to join us on our holiday, and all members of the party had a most enjoyable holiday.

1. The time spent on the boat. 2. The organised trip on the island of Santorini. 3. The short visit to the island of Delos Please allow one small suggestion: those attending the cruise were a very mixed bunch - young, old, trendy and some (like us) rather square. On the rear deck there was continuous music from early morning to late at night. It was unlikely to suit all tastes, and for the rest of us, it was rather intrusive.

Recommended for
(1) The friendship and courtesy of the on-board staff, (2) the excellent food, (3) the thoughtful reorganisation of the tour, which was made necessary by the inclement weather.
