Cruise at the top! Many thanks to the crew who were most welcoming and who made sure that we never missed anything! The organization was neat. Punctuality during morning pick-up. The islands are not crazy but we have a good time there anyway. The boat is really cozy and we had a great day there. The lunch served is of good quality. We were able to eat it on board to a background of Greek music, a treat! Conclusion, we do not do this cruise for the beauty of the islands but rather to have a good time on the boat to see dolphins from time to time :)

A great experience all around. They organised pick up and drop off with us the day before, and were very communicative. The cruise itself was stunning, the crew were personable and friendly, and the food served on board was fantastic. Would recommend to anyone.
