The whole experience was out standing. The Galileo is a great boat to sail on with the whole crew friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, the places we visited were unforgettable & the other guests were great. A must do holiday.
We've just come back from the cruise in Iceland, from Reykjavik to Akureyri. It was our first cruise. And we loved it all. The crew is really committed to making the trip a real success for everyone. We liked the unformal ambiance on board. The 49 passengers are from many different countries, and they are really there to discover the country and to exchange about their experiences (in English) We appreciated the total flexibility on board: we can participate in the wery well organized excursions, but we can, as well organize one's own program on shore. The itinerary allows to visit some of the most interesting parts of Iceland. And the program is quite diversified. The food is really good, and the comfort of the cabins is quite correct, even if the ship has already lived many cruises. We highly recommend this cruise.
Our 2nd cruise with variety cruises July 2018 onboard panorama was just as amazing as our first on Harmony V (2014). We loved everything, from the food (so delicious) to the service from all the crew! The swimming from the boat was the highlight for us. Joseph our cruise co-ordination is just an amazing person, so warm and friendly and knowledgeable about all the ports, where to eat, swim, shop and of course Valeria our bar person, who remembered everyone’s name from day one, thanks for all the fun! We would highly recommend variety cruises to anyone looking for a more personal approach to cruising, the crew (including the captain) are always available for a chat, offering further insight to the cruise. We can’t wait to get on board again!
