We were expecting this to be a private cruise for just the 2 of us, but we found 8 other people onboard so it was definitely crowded and since none of us spoke the same languages it was less than what we expected.

Disappointed in this cruise, skipper was not engaged, no safety briefing or offer for life jackets, poor selection of food and insufficient for the 11 guests on board.

We loved our day of sailing. We had a boat for just our group of nine. Lunch was delicious and our swim stops were fun. We ended with a perfect sunset. Yiannis and crew were very nice and made sure we had a great day.
