We have travelled with variety many times and cruised on the Harmony G in June 2021. Even allowing for covid it was very sad that this trip failed to meet the high standards of all previous trips. The boat is extremely tired, in poor repair and in places dirty. The food was absolutely not up to the quality of previous trips. The crew, cruise director and captain etc were all excellent and did a good job and given we have had so many great trips I wanted to provide the feedback direct. Whilst their initial response was prompt and they suggested they would revert I’m posting this now as I haven’t heard back which makes more wondered if they have chosen to ignore it
I had to cancel a reservation for a trip 8 months in advance of travel. The trip was cancelled on June 18 2019 ( cruise was for 22 FEB 20) I was advised that they would refund the deposit of Euro 400. I have supplied all bank details. However,I have sent follow up emails enquiring about the refund but they all go unanswered. So it appears that the funds are now lost - Anne Weldon Martin
Well informed itinerary each day, safety first. Great meals, met lots of different nationalitys
It was a good, clean ship with nice food and clear information about the daily activities.
Our cruise was very pleasant. We rate the staff and all facilities very highly. Despite there being a change in plans due to very bad weather in the main channel, we all happily accepted the Captain's advise and made the best of the change in destinations. Everyone was very courteous and happy, the tour guide Stella was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her knowledge of English and information that she gave us on the islands and their archaeological sites was second to none. Well done Variety Cruises !!!
We had an excellent cruise director -- Joseph -- who was extremely accommodating and a wonderful tour guide on our excursions. The staff was great. The food was good and plentiful, including options for us vegetarians. Our ship, the Harmony G was very comfortable. I would recommend the trip to others.
We cruised the Cyclades on the Harmony G, June 14-21 and loved every minute of our time. We were very lucky to have beautiful weather and calm seas. We thoroughly enjoyed the historical sites we visited and all the ports of call. We also met lots of friendly fellow travellers and will keep in touch with some of them. Jospeh is a wonderful cruise director, knowledgeable and passionate about his country. All of the crew were helpful and friendly.

One in August 2018
Friendly crew, good food, cabin in need of a bit of tlc.
Happy ,helpful crew Good food and plentiful Adequate cabin Good trips ashore Goo d information about the trips and local history
We had a superb trip aboard Harmony G around Cap Verde and thoroughly enjoyed the small ship experience.
Great ship, stunning scenery, amazing crew, yummy food, and being a small ship I felt surrounded by friends. If I didn’t have to pay extra for being a solo traveller I would be back sooner. Regards Dianne
We are already dreaming of another trip as our first vacation was wonderful. We have recommended Variety Cruises to friends too!
The make up of the cruise visiting the Islands was good. The crew were excellent, so was the food The BBQ on shore, the meats were cold as they had been cooked elsewhere. There were BBQs on site so the meats could have been cooked fresh (there was enough time and other tour operators were doing it) The ship furnishings were a bit dated and could do with up grading. Otherwise most enjoyable
We had a great time with excellent food , companions and daily landings that allowed walking and climbing to sights.
We don’t feel that the cruise itself was value for money. For the amount spent we felt that the shore tours/activities should have been included in the price. We were disappointed that we did not get to Crete but do understand that the weather plays its part. The crew were excellent as was the general accommodation and food.
Fabulous 8 day cruise on the Harmony G -June 2019! Joseph, our cruise coordinator was amazing as were all the staff on board. The perfect way to visit the beautiful islands of Greece -highly recommend to anyone wanting a small ship experience and have a touch of luxury also! Thank you Variety Cruises for providing such a wonderful experience.
Visited great islands in the Cyclades.
The crew did all that we would have expected from them but went further and showed a genuine interest in all the passengers.
The ship was very dated. My cabin decor was old and wallpaper patched in places. The ensuite was dated and dirty. There was mould on the grout on the tiles. The captain was rude and didn't want to get to know the guests. Over all my cruise was very expensive for what I received
