Overall pretty good. However, crew could communicate a bit better as they didn’t greet everyone and let us know the itinerary. Was pretty disappointed with one swimming stop when it’s advertised that there are “swimming stops”. However, the swimming stop is in a beautiful location. Lunch was a simple Greek salad with bread and olive oil. Music was just a Phil Collins greatest hits album, which was rather strange!

Fun cruise over the water with an ultimate swim stop at the rocks and clear blue water. We were able to snorkel, swim, explore the caves and visit the cave house. The captain of the ship took his job (safety - instructions) very seriously. The lunch was personally a bit disappointing and the swimming stop could certainly last longer!

The tour was great! The captain was the most authentic person I have ever seen, including the anchor tattoo and mermaid tattoo. For lunch there was Greek salad with bread and 2 small bottles of olive oil including drinks and ice cream (from Magnum). It was really a great tour and the water is breathtaking.
