Great day trip! The boat ride was long to Hydra the furthest island and first stop If the day but totally worth the wait! The port/village was gorgeous and we had just enough time to wander around to the other side of the port and find a restaurant on a cliff with the most breathtakingly beautiful view of the other islands and beautiful blue waters, then had a swim off the rocks into the crystal blue warm waters before heading back to the ship. Next stop Poros was a very short stop but a great view coming into port. Had enough time to grab a few souvenirs, the kids a gelato from the great shop near where you get off and then we decided to sit in one of the restaurants and enjoy a local beer or two in the sunshine before heading back. Last stop was Aegina the largest of the islands. We choose to do the extra circular activity and caught a small boat over to Moni island and swim/drink in the beautiful blue waters which was amazing! Downside was cramped on boat But food was good.

Great value for the price of the ticket. Yes the first two stops are pretty brief and we could’ve used more time on the islands, and the food is pretty basic for lunch and everything has a cost, but all in all everything does have a cost and it was a great day on the boat.

Great sightseeing experience

I had my expectations before the cruise and already then I understood that it will be short stays at islands. Just wanted to take a look at islands before going back home. Was really great Cruise for the price you pay. It only had 3 short stops on the islands and on ship offered a trip on last one for 28 euros I advice to take that option. Because in time you given on islands you wont be able to explore too much on foot anyway. On ship you can upgrade to VIP lodge as well. Seen more expensive offers for this Cruise and some Little cheaper, but you can probably go with cheaper one and upgrade later anyway on ship if you fancy. Kitchen was buffet didn't had big choose there, but was reasonably good.
