My husband, myself and our 13 year old son are visitng Greece next April. We are planning to travel from Athens to Mykonas, then to Santorini, then to Crete via fast ferries/catamaran (not the slow ferries, but the ones that take about half the travel time between the islands), as I though this would be a good way to see the islands and the beautiful sea. If anyone has done any of this please let me know your thoughts. I am interested to know the quality of the boats - seating/ food and beverage available/ etc/etc. Also does anyone know any nice small classy boutique hotels to stay in on these islands and in Athens? Also any advice re Crete - to go or not go? To hire a car and drive around the island or not? We plan to fly from Crete back to Athens. Lots of questions I know but lots for me to know and learn. Thank you.
