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

- reviewed on 03 october 2023

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.
