Adventure for those who can be flexible

Our cab driver pulled up to the dock and we could not believe how beautiful the Galileo was. Luckily, he recognized the Greek spelling for Galileo and drove us right to the gangplank. The crew and staff offered ...

A fabulous way to introduce yourself to the Greek islands

This cruise line is 4 star and perfectly delivers to that standard. The great thing is that the ships are small , yacht like for those of us who cannot afford a yacht, and comfortable rather than luxurious. The real ...
