Party Boat No much time in Greece

Sail Date: July 18, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The boat was older and due to be updated. No much to do for younger children under 3. They only spent 4-5 hours in Santorini which i took i hour to commute to the shore and they wanted us on the boat 1 hour.  I would spend more money and also stop by Greece.  The food was good especially when they had special meals. Had a special menu for baby 12 months and under. Which was nice because they did not offer much for children under 3.
