The experience was great. We had (mistakenly) selected the tour without hotel pickup and scrambled a little bit to rind a way to get to Piraeus from central Athens. Thankfully, the metro was just around the corner and only costs a couple euros per person (definitely more cost effective). The ship was nice and clean and had plenty of spots to rest. The staff were extremely friendly, answered all your question, and the food was delicious. We loved to explore the islands and swimming. Our only drawback is the price point. A ferry to each of these islands cost only a fraction of the amount you pay for the cruise, and feel that you don't necessarily get your "money's worth". A great experience if you want to tackle multiple destinations in a day and don't want the hastle of planning it all yourself.

Absolutely fantastic experience, from start to finish. Super nice and helpful crew, who ensure that everyone has a good time there. Agistri is a super beautiful island, I can definitely recommend renting bikes, otherwise you will hardly be able to see a bit of the island and swim. Swimming at Moni and subsequent lunch is fantastic. Aegina just as wonderful with lots of pistachio tastings. A fantastic boat trip, and an experience that can definitely be recommended. Thanks to the crew for making the day unforgettable.

Was very enjoyable! Highlight of our trip. Lots of friendly people from all over. The crew was wonderful. Very helpful and accommodating. The island visits were a little short, but still great to see and enjoy. The swimming was so fun! It was awesome to jump off the boat and have fun in the water! Would highly recommend!
