We did this cruise last week which is off season so the boat was not very crowded. We purchased the optional transfers. We were picked up at our hotel at the exact time we were told they would be there. It was worth the extra money as we did not have to find a taxi or public transportation. The 3 islands visited were quaint fishing villages. There was some stores and lots of restaurants. They did offer extra shore excursions which we did not purchase. We also did not upgrade to VIP but if you plan on drinking a lot this may be a better option as drinks are extra and a bit pricey. The buffet lunch was really good with a selection of salad, rice, potatoes, vegetables, fish, chicken legs and pasta. There was a sweet cake for dessert. The tables were set a little too close together. Some extra room would have been nice. We returned around 7:30 pm and was promptly returned to our hotel. We really enjoyed our day. I would definitely recommend this trip.

From our pickup at hotel, to the onboard experience (Thank you Yanis for the lovely service!) to the island tours and souvenir shopping, we had a day that was fully satisfying. We enjoyed ourselves from sunrise to sunset, both enjoyed while relaxing on the deck of the cruise ship. Don't miss this!

Love, love, love...We had VIP upgrade and it well worth it, great service, great food. Wonderful tour guides on islands. Will most definitely do it again.

This was a wonderful day to wrap up our week in Greece! The VIP package is truly wonderful, Costas and his colleague, Costas, make every effort to cater to you throughout your time on ship and make sure you disembark in a timely manner. The only disappointing aspect was only that I wish we had more time to explore the islands, especially Hydra!! Wonderful tour!

Great tour of all three islands. It takes the whole day but is well worth the time and cost. Even the lunch buffet was pretty decent.

The whole experience was really great. Loved seeing the area by boat. Our favorite island was Hydra. Beautiful little town and harbor. We even swam for a bit in a beautiful cove just a short walking distance from the port. The staff on the boat were superb and so accommodating. We really enjoyed the entertainment between the ports as well. Good food too.

I loved this trip. Especially I would recommend VIP package. The service in the VIP lounge was great and accommodations were comfortable. The sightseeing opportunities are wonderful. There is no better way to see three island then this cruise. I will strongly recommend it to everyone.

This was a great way to see a few Greek islands. Hydra was the best and seeing the temple and the wonderful views of the Aegean seas on Egina was breathtaking. Didn’t do the VIP and didn’t miss it. Food was decent and the staff helpful and friendly but drinks a little overpriced but normally are on cruises. Took the optional tour on hydra and Egina but not much to see in Poros so didn’t do that one. Go to the top of click tower up there to see the wonderful views and shop on Poros. This cruise was the best day of my vacation. Everything went smoothly including the buses. No complaints and would highly recommend this tour.

I thought this was going to be a little rinky-dink cruise. How wrong I was. It was phenomenal. Honestly, it is hard to care about anything more when you are sitting on the top deck, looking out into the impossibly blue water with a cloudy glass of ouzo in your hand. Lunch was great, the cultural show was great, the island stops were GREAT! Book with confidence.

My family and I did this tour last week and we loved it. Upgrading to VIP was well worth the money. We had our own huge booth, with enough space for two people to lay down. The on boarding and exiting at each port was made easy by the staff. We were given priority with this process, which was wonderful. Otherwise, we would have had to wait in long line.

This was a great trip, showing the highlights of each of the three islands. I highly recommend purchasing the tours of the islands that they offer onboard the cruise.

This day cruise to three different Greek Islands was amazing. Everyone on the staff is extremely friendly. I highly suggest upgrading to the VIP package.

We liked this trip. We read the reviews ahead of time and saw the complaints about time spent on each island so we knew the stops were brief and that was not a problem for us. The trip is already 11 hours long so making the island stops longer just lengthens the day and this could be an option, starting at 7:00 instead of 8:00. Our goal was simple, we wanted to get a sense of each island with the idea of returning in the future for a 2-3 day stay, and we accomplished that goal. On board the sun was nice most of the day, take sunscreen if you insist on sitting on deck! The ocean breeze was wonderful morning and afternoon but got cold on our way back to Athens so take along a sweater too. I read comments good and bad about lunch, but we found it good, plentiful, with varied choices. I will agree with the other 27 reviews that complained that you had to pay for water to drink. Pay for beer, of course, pay for soft drinks, stingy but okay. Pay for water, totally unacceptable. And they had warnings on their menus that Greek law prohibits bringing food or drink aboard ship. The crew was very nice, particularly the Filipino guy in the galley. There was some mention of traditional folklore dances on board but the entertainment space was tiny and the Audience space cramped so we just stayed away from it and enjoyed the cruise back. In summary, we enjoyed the cruise, we accomplished what we set out to do, we liked each island and we liked the food. The time announced for each island is a bit deceptive because it also takes time to get off and then to get back on. We were told 40 minutes on Poros but in fact we had just 30. We don’t need to do this trip again, but we would recommend it to others with the similar goal of visiting 3 islands in one day.

First time doing a day cruise and this experience didn’t disappoint. Hydra was definitely my favorite island to visit. Glad we started there first. We had the VIP experience and it seemed to be worth it with the included amenities and having the privilege to get on and off first.

This cruise was more than expected. The staff were super friendly, the food was amazing and the islands beautiful. Booked one of the excursions offered on board and was not disappointed.

It was a day full of beauty, fun and great cruising, we were picked up exactly on time, the boat was big and very pretty, great staff ready to serv you and the lunch buffet was just awesome! All the 3 islands were so beautiful and the people were nice and friendly. When I come back I will do this trip again. As the end of the tour approached we had live entertainment where traditional Greek dances in the traditional attires were performed and we were all welcome to join.

This is a wonderful way to see some of the islands. Be sure to sign up for the tours, they are great!

If you want to see the islands but you are short on time, I highly recommend this tour. It is a long day, so bring what you need. I would recommend a sweater, because it was cooler in the morning but a bag to take the sweater off because once it hit around 11am it was really hot. We paid extra for the VIP upgrade and it was 100 worth it! Spend the money, you wont' regret it. The service is fantastic and you don't have to wait in any lines. There are alot of people on the boat and it was so nice to not have to wait for lunch, drinks or to get on and off the boat. The islands are also stunning, Hydra being our favourite. When you get to Egina, I would recommend taking a taxi to the temple instead of utilizing the tours on the boat. You are on a large bus with tons of other tourists. We took a cab on our own and made it to the temple before everyone else and we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves.

This cruise was amazing. We payed extra for the VIP upgrade and it was worth every penny. All the crew went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant time, especially Kostas. You can't go wrong with this tour.
