Our customers' reviews of this boat

4,6 · 5 reviews

  • 5

    A wonderful experience with a caring and thoughtful crew in a beautiful part of the world.

    The M/S Galileo was an older cruise boat with a great deal of character. The itinerary was well planned and the additional excursions were well worth the extra effort. We would certainly consider future cruises with this company.

    Un bateau plein de charme pour une belles découvertes des cyclades

    Un bateau en bois très chaleureux et très confort. Un super circuit avec un réveil chaque matin dans une île différente, c’est magique !

    Ottima organizzazione

    Ottima crociera, la barca era molto bella.La cucina ottima e lo staff davvero disponibile e gentile.Le cabine sono confortevoli, con una ottima dotazione di amenities, a disposizione persino i solari.Una bella esperienza, peccato solo che le escursioni sono vincolate alla partecipazione di 14 viaggiatori:difficile riuscire a farne se ci sono dei compagni di viaggio più stanziali...
