We upgraded and glad we did. The experience was great and the Purser in the VIP lounge was fantastic.
Excellent tour! We did the VIP option and had very attentive staff addressing all needs and we enjoyed sitting comfortably in a non crowded upscale separate segment of the ship. Unlimited snacks and beverages, helpful for everyone.
All three islands were beautiful and tours were offered at Hydra and Egina, one of which is included for no additional charge with VIP.
The other is extra, but you can choose which island will be your Freebie.
There was enough time at each island for pictures, shopping and a little exploration, but not much more.
On the way back, the sea was a little choppy and the boat rocked quite a bit, with chairs falling down and glasses breaking.
Staff even passed out barf bags at one point, just in case.
Thankfully that was only the last 30 minutes of the trip back to port.
I would still do it again though. The islands are beautiful enough and so different from the other more historically significant sites around Greece, that this trip is an important addition to a well balanced vacation.
I upgraded for the vip experience which my family really appreciated as I had a 11 and 16 y/o. There were only 10 people in the large stateroom with private service. Everyone loved the tour more than they thought they would and the islands were beautiful and we loved seeing the Temple of Athea. We wound up seeing all 3 major temples so this was a bonus. A long day but a very nice way to spend a day.
Excellent over view of islands! A fun day being exposed to the Greek culture and history.
excellent tour, gorgeous little harbour ports.
Bus picked us up at the hotel on time and we headed to the port after collecting other passengers. The day unfortunately was grey and overcast with a steady drizzle. Seas looked fairly calm as we eft the port BUT the ride to Hydra was unfortunately quite rough. Toilets were well occupied on the ride as quite a lot of persons were sea sick- including myself. HOWEVER.... it was worth losing my breakfast. Sailing into Hydra was an experience - the view of the town, houses on the hills etc breath taking and memorable. Poros - most shops were closed as the winter season and Aegina - again quite a few shops closed but the bus tour around the island was great and the stop at a traditional restaurant for Greek tapas was nice. Would definitely have been better in sunny weather BUT still a great experience.
This was an amazing deal for what you get to see. I highly recommend this tour.
Great day out on the water, plenty of sights to see on each island. Great music and snacks on board. Recommend
Our small group had a lovely time and relaxing day on this cruise. We would highly recommend it to others. We selected the standard option and were very pleased with this option. The standard option was a good value for all of the items included in the tour transportation, cruise, lunch, greek dancing. We would recommend taking one of the two tours offered on Egina. The bus was right on time for pickup from the hotel in the morning. The crew was very helpful and the boat was clean and well designed for viewing the islands. The lunch buffet was good. It included chicken, fish, pasta, potatoes, rice, greek salad and regular salad along with cake for dessert.
If you are in Athens in December/January like I was during my trip in Jan. 2017, I highly recommend taking this trip. The islands that we went to were beautiful, the staff and crew were great, the onboard entertainment was excellent, and the food was delicious. It's a very long day, but you will enjoy every minute of it. And if you go in December/Jan, then it probably won't be as crowded, which is really nice!
