That was a really great experience. Also a super lovingly designed boat for fans. Nice access points and the selection of drinks is appealing. Prices also fair. Lunch was also really tasty. Coleslaw, bread and souvlaki. We also had great weather for swimming at the end of October. Not too hot not too cold. A great trip!
