Everything Louise has said in her review I want to "ditto" for my review because we both had a remarkable day on a remarkable vessel with a remarkable crew. I liked the crew & sailing adventure so well in 2012 when I visited Santorini, I didn't not hesitate to do the tour again this year with a new travel buddy so she could delight in the experience...which she did, over the top! I didn't think the sailing could beat 2012 but when Captain Mike let me take the wheel for a bit & video it, well, I have bragging rights now! Btw, 1st mate Cristos is spot on for taking those once in a lifetime photos should you need an xtra hand & Marguerite is spot on for dishing out a superb feast for lunch besides her saucy humor! This ship hoist the sails so there may be some spray in the front at times (just be aware - it adds to the fun). Life jackets make it a bit easier to manage your way over to the hot springs & as Louise mentioned, snorkel gear is available if you want to see some fish (save some bread from lunch to feed them!) Ladies, wear a pretty suit out but change to a dark one if you enter the hot springs to avoid stains from the sulphur in the water. Also rinse off well to avoid staining a light colored coverup. This is a grand day of sailing that will stay with you as a special memory. One other memory maker is to visit The Boat House restaurant in Kamari (maybe after the sailing) for dinner. Cristos's father, Fotis owns it & I just happen to find out about in on the ship (good insider stuff). Not only is there plate breaking and traditional Greek dancing but the new dessert called "Banofi" is to die for, OMG delicious - tell them Captain Christy sent you! Also, (another insider scoop), Mike's father owns Petra Honeymoon Villas & if you want to stay at THE honeymoon haven of Santorini...check Petra out (quite unbelievable...no kidding!) So, it is amazing how much you can learn about Santorini on a incredible cruise like Carpe Diem. Seize the day & book it now!
