I went on this trip with my sister in May 2014 and we had a fabulous time! We are in our mid 20s and we were by far the youngest on the trip but we were really early in the season. We didn't have to deal with crowds but the water was much too cold for swimming so if you want to swim choose a later summer date.
This was my first cruise and it was nice being able to stay on the boat and see so many islands in one trip. The boat fits about 40 passengers and ~10crew. It is not luxury accommodations but you are very well taken care of and comfortable. There is a main dining room on the first floor and the cabins are down below. We had a standard room with town beds - its really small, really only enough room to sleep in but thats all you really need. There is a closet with a safe and room to keep your suitcases under the bed. Each room has an attached bathroom. They provide towels and beach towels and there is a hair dryer but it didn't work super well.
We never went hungry - breakfast was usually at 8:30 or 9 and they had eggs, french toast/pancakes, bacon and other meats, cheeses and breads. The lunch/dinner meal was always filling and completely fine, not gourmet though. There is a bar in the main lounge with a wonderful bartender and daily drink specials for 4euros. There are 2 decks for lounging and the top deck has great lounge chairs where we got a lot of sun.
We spent most of our time on the islands. We did the paid excursion to santorini and it was definitely worth the money - you go to and archeological dig site and the town of Oia where we chose to stay and watch the sun set. Highly recommend. On most of the islands it is really easy to grab a bus or cab to explore.

Bathroom smell was strange. Back up on the last day. The events manger and maid were awesome. The breakfast was great. The rest of the food was so so.
