(+) Comfortable ship with an excellent view from all seats. Friendly crew attitude. Glass-bottom offers interesting view in low-depth waters. Excellent occasion to meet wildlife: dolphins and seagulls accompanying the ship. (-) Audio presentation of visited places not audible enough at all times. Monastic life film projection not performed or moment not announced to passengers. Promised yellow coral reef presentation did not happen.

Sehr interessante Tour, auch mit Kindern sehr kurzweilig. Der kleine Glasbodenausschnitt in der Mitte des Schiffes ist ganz nett, man sieht jedoch nicht viel in dieser Region, darum ist es keine besondere Attraktion. Die Erklärungen über die Klöster entlang der Küste sind mehrsprachig, obwohl nur in Englisch ausführlichere Beschreibungen kommen, in anderen Sprachen kommt nur eine Kurzversion. Darum beim englischen Teil immer aufpassen. Man kann sich ganz vorne im Schiff im freien aufhalten, ansonsten ist alles im inneren und überdacht. Es gibt auch eine Bar mit Snacks und Getränken zu fairen Preisen.

Glasboden weniger sinnvoll. Aber alles in allem bekommt man was man bucht. Eine Fahrt bis zum Berg Athos mit Informationen zu den Klöstern und Aussicht auf die Halbinsel. Ich wäre nur gerne noch ein paar Meter weiter bis zum Ende des Berges gefahren.
