Hi everyone. I was just on the Variety Cruise through the Greek Isles on the Harmony V. It was awesome. We went to some islands most of the big cruise ships can't go to. So, you get a feel for a more local experience, and our guide Joeseph was fantastic. We skipped much of the tours, opting to relax at a couple of beach clubs instead. The itinerary is packed full of adventures, so if you tire easily, see some highlights, then relax on one of the many gorgeous beaches. There were a couple of teenagers on the boat, they were bored on days at sea, so bring some activities for them, or a computer for them to play games with. There is no entertainment on board, except one night, they bring on some greek dancers for a fun cultural experience. I would have skipped this to spend more time in the beautiful town we docked at and had dinner off boat. Rooms were nice. We had a normal room without the extra space, and it was roomy. I would just ask for more hooks on the walls to hang things for extra storage. Book the front half of the boat. The back half, especially the rooms under the outside lounge area can hear things like chairs moving on the floor, and voices from passengers enjoying late evening cocktails. Food was good on the boat, the dining area has both booth seating and chairs and table seating for groups of four. Everyone from the crew to Spiros the accommodations host to the captain were super! We're booking Cuba with them next! Can't wait!
