OF THE CYCLADES
The best of the Aegean Islands
8 days cruises from Athens - Marina Zea
on board the 49 passenger MotorSailer GALILEO
are back from our wonderful adventure. We were gone a total
of 15 days and the last week was on the boat. It could not
have been better!! We had such a great time. The crew and
staff were friendly and helpful and the room was excellent.
We got very lucky and the rest of the guests were fun and
easy to get to know. We highly recommend it.
The Greek Isles are breathtakingly beautiful!!
A big thanks to you for helping us. ...Terri...6/15/09
