Sail Date: Aug 2017
Traveled with children

We were traveling on this ship with the family way back in 2017 at the end of August. It was called the Ionic Cruise. Many families onboard that time. Super friendly crew. Kids super enjoyed the Pirates' Day organised by the crew. And also the knots-tying lessons. The food on the ship covered all preferences.

Highlights of the islands was definitely Kefalonia. So many stunning monasteries and churches! And the views from the hills! Other half of the time on the island was about caves. Drogarati and Melissani. Two very different ones. One deep underground, the other is basically an isolated lake. We were very happy with excursions.

But onboard we had fun too. That Pirates' Day with treasures, cabin decor, toy swords, hide and seek, water balls and rope pulling. Kids were over the Moon, and we too actually. Though we also had the chance to do some yoga and sunbathe a fair bit.

Cabin Review

So many sea theme decorations inside the cabins! Like a museum or a gallery. In the halls too! Very unique feel. Somewhat classic and yet very cozy.
