"What made us happy? Small chip cruising with personalised service by the staff and crew. The Captain had our safety in mind and the crew set out to ensure we enjoyed and our time at sea and the activities on land. Nothing was too much trouble. We loved our Greek island trip and can't wait to do another."

"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"

"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."

"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 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."

"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"
