Cruise to Greece & Tours to Greece Impressions
* Dear Mr. Cocconi,
Our Discovery Cruise on the H&B 1 that left April 18th was a great experience. The crew was very friendly and efficient. Our tour guide, Helena, was very helpful, instructive and fun to be around. She definitely added to the experience, and was a great source of information. The food was excellent and served very professionally. We got to try a lot of different dishes at lunch and dinner, but breakfast could use a little more variety. The size of the boat and smaller number of passengers (around 30) was a big plus…
…Our cabin was actually larger than we anticipated and are happy that Michael suggested booking one on the main deck…
…. Beds were made and cabins cleaned every day, and the crew frequently cleaned the decks and windows. Everything very spic and span.
We participated in the optional tours and were glad we did. The excursion to Delos was especially good with a very talented local guide. Having a smaller group of passengers also allowed us to interact with one another with lots of conversation. I also think this kind of cruise attracts people who are a little more adventurous and have travelled more than average.
We appreciated having taxi transportation arranged to and from the cruise. All in all, a very unique and enjoyable way to visit the beautiful islands…
…We have highly recommended the cruise to people who asked about our experience and are very grateful that we found your website. I think I found you listed in one of the guide books, but don’t remember which one.

* Ship and crew were fantastic! Good food, good cheer, good dancing, good fun ! Great experience all around! Thank you so much!
* “This week aboard the H&B1 has been a wonderful experience as M and I had no experience in which to …our expectations; so we were open to whatever we got. Among 22 passengers we have made friends. We love the crew from Captain George all the way to the lower ranks. Pavlos inspired dancing at every possible occasion. The cook was mighty fine. Each member of the crew made a special effort to us that our new experience was the best possible. We will never try a big cruise ship, favoring the intimacy of the H&B1. To each of the crew we give our warm thanks, especially our leader Manos, who shepherded us around the islands and gave history lessons. We look forward to making this experience again and gain.
* Peter – We totally enjoyed our time in Greece. The ship was not what we had experienced in other cruises. Guess we were used to larger ships that offered more dining alternatives, etc. The cabins were, however, the largest we’ve ever experienced. We actually had a bath tub! All in all I would say the entire trip was a success. Thank you so much for all your patience and help in booking our reservations. P. B. , USA
The most fun and interesting group of people one could hope to travel with – superb staff and crew. Greece with its magic –what more could we want on this Aegean cruise ? Thank you.
