Sail Date: Feb 2022

We bought this cruise in a benefit auction for Aces In Motion, a non-profit in Gainesville, Florida which teaches tennis to help develop life skills and character in teenagers who want a better life!. We were delayed 3 times by covid and once by Variety but the timing of the trip 3 Nov 2022 couldn't have been more perfect. The weather did reroute us to Messalinghi which turned out to be an amazing place for flamingos and a brilliant sunset. Dietmer, our cruise director, worked so hard to keep us on track, and help a disabled cruise passenger see everything with the challenging geography. Jenny was so informative about the places we saw, the modern and ancient Greek culture and history, and her enthusiasm was contagious. Iro lead a great hike from Delphi, and other places (which we didn't attend because we saw antiquities). The boat was clean and comfortable and the Captain friendly and knowledgeable. I had to watch my head a lot through doors though- I'm 6'6". The food was so fresh every day and tasty with an emphasis on Greek foods, presentation, and preparation. I ate dessert first because it was so good. And because we were the last scheduled boat this year the crowds were nonexistent. We had a great time seeing Greece for the first time on this Variety cruise
