The 'Tween Deck' is home to 13 standard cabins, the galley, and the watersports area, allowing direct water access. The mini-suites and premium cabins are on the main deck, along with the restaurant, ocean bar, and observation deck. Located on the sun deck are comfortable chaise lounge chairs, a shaded lounge, and a Jacuzzi-swimming pool accommodating 6 people. Each cabin features a private en-suite bathroom, AC, TV monitor, and ample storage space.

Small-ship cruises aboard the Running on Waves sailboat explore the stunning jewels of the Mediterranean Sea. Sail around the ancient beauty of the Cyclades, the Ionian, and the Peloponnesus Islands, to name a few. Days start with a sunrise swim or a leisurely coffee, followed by a hearty breakfast and the day's first stop. You'll then have plenty of time to explore each new island at your leisure, or excursions can be arranged. You can always return to the ship whenever you feel like it. The evenings are spent onboard enjoying the delicious Greek cuisine, socializing at one of the bars, or taking in the starry sky in peace.

Treated like royalty!!!!!!!!

So many highlights!!!! The crew interaction and hospitality, the sailing, the sites, going under the Rion-Antirion bridge, thru the Corinth Canal, Olympia, jumping off the boat, dingy rides to other islands, swimming in beach on Kefalonia, the amazing passengers we bonded with from different countries!!!! We highly recommend! We will be back again!

Unforgettable cruise through the Cyclades!

Running on Waves was amazing! The destinations were truly breathtaking. I appreciated that they took us to some less visited islands, like Folegandros and Serifos. The crew were so friendly, informative and accommodating. Access to the tender (the motor boat launch) all day to go back and forth between ship and port at each island was a great feature and allowed for much flexibility. The ship itself is gorgeous and the cabins and common spaces are comfortable and nicely appointed. When the sails are up it's a breathtaking sight. Being a smaller vessel also allowed us to go into smaller harbors where the big cruise ships cannot go. Food was awesome and plentiful and meals were always relaxed and fun. The watersports platforms was nice to have, but there was so much to do on the islands that we didn't use it much, also some harbor areas did not allow it, but still a great resource. We had planned to dive on this trip, but due to the small number of divers on our cruise (only 4 in total), there was no diving from the ship and they had to organize custom trips with local dive guides. However, the two they chose were fantastic. The boarding and de-boarding processes were smooth and easy. Overall, my family and I had a fantastic time. It was a truly amazing experience!

Magical Experience

I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet mornings watching the sun rise over the islands and marveling at the crew readying the ship to enter the different ports. In addition, our Hotel Manager, Robert, went out of his way to ensure the guests expectations were met while focused on safety. As an example, we arrived back on the ship a few minutes before departure and we wanted to jump off the back of the boat for a refreshing dip in the Aegean Sea. Robert connected with the Captain to ask permission and then stayed with us to be sure we were back on the boat in a timely manner to ensure the crew could ready the boat for departure - priceless! This was the trip of a lifetime and we were so pleased with every aspect of the experience.

There were so many highlights it is hard to narrow it to three items. 1) Running on Waves staff/crew went out of their way to ensure everyone had a wonderful time. 2) Running on Waves sailing crew were top notch and moved in poetic rhythm when raising/lowering the sails as well as focused on everyone's safety when boarding and leaving the ship. 3) Each meal was thoughtfully prepared, aesthetically pleasing to the eye and delicious!

Beautiful ship and outstanding service in one package

This ship is beautiful. Not only at the last program (photo safari) can one realize it, but along the way, every day. The food is just exceptional. But above all, the service is outstanding. Someone has already summarized it correctly: This trip is about the service. each and every crew member is smiling and helping any passenger to feel that the service is coming from their heart. This is true for the captain as well as the cleaning seamen. It was a lifetime experience travel.

The staff were sooooo helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. They were always happy and keen to make us happy. The on-off boarding was always safe and I felt very looked after by the sailors. This ship is like a diamond - everything was perfect and shiny!

Wunderbare Mischung aus Bordleben und Aktivitäten an Land

Die Inselwelt der Kykladen bei tollem Wetter, schwimmen direkt von der Segeljacht und, nicht zuletzt, die effiziente und freundliche Betreuung wie auch die ausgezeichneten Mahlzeiten an Bord. Eine Woche, die ich jederzeit wiederholen würde.
