Unfortunately it was quite a rainy miserable day and as such the boat was so crowded it was rather uncomfortable with nowhere to relax. The 3 islands visited were great but would suggest visiting 2 islands would be better. Not enough time for 3 islands by the time you get everyone off and on. Pick up from hotels was efficient but the standout was the entertainment on the way back to Athens, I thoroughly enjoyed the music and the greek dancers and having the opportunity to join in.

Staff was very nice and helpful. It’s an easy way to see these 3 islands without much hassle. It’s a long day but time spent on each island is brief, but you definitely get a feel for the islands and if you’d like to spend more time on one later. Make sure you check the weather before you depart as it can change quickly!

We loved this cruise! Very organized and great service onboard. I would recommend doing one of the bus tours on the third island, we did the cultural and historic tour. The bus meets you and drops you off right at the port. It is a little cold in the morning and evening (beginning of April), so definitely bring a jacket and wear comfortable shoes.
