  3. Harmony V

We just returned from a great trip on Harmony V, through Variety Cruises. A 7 day trip that was fabulous! From the itinerary to the service,the food, to the boat to the weather.

Please note that this is a cruise for travelers, not cruise-ship folks. The boat is small, holds 54 passengers. We had 27, which made it wonderful too.

We visited:

Kea

Mykonos

Delos (day excursion, extra $, but well worth it with a paid guide)

Santorini

Rethymnon/Crete

Kythira

Monemvassia - Nafplion

Hydra

Ranan, our cruise specialist, led us through each town on a walk to point out the main points of interest, routes to go, shopping, etc. She was great!

The boat is perfect for this type of vacation. Plenty of space to relax, which we did later in the week while sailing during the day. Breakfast is provided, and was great. Each day, either lunch or dinner is provided, giving guests the opportunity to have a meal on each island and try the local cuisine. Each port had plenty of tavernas or more upscale restaurants. It was a great way to explore each place.

We had a mixture of Americans, Spanish, Italian and Greek people on board with us.

The service on board was exceptional. The crew truly worked hard to make sure we were happy. I highly recommend this company.
