Daddy´s Hobby Guest Reviews
Charter 24.06.2017-1.07.2017 - Charterer Alex L.
My friend was gracious enough to invite my wife and meon a Greek Island cruise last summer aboard Daddy´s Hobby. We came in with high expectations and those expectations were not only met, but greatly exceeded! Below is my review:
The Boat: Daddy´s Hobby is a large Catamaran that comfortably sleeps 8 (we were seven), not including the crew. First of all, the crew keeps this boat immaculately clean. The boat has multiple living/lounging spaces, so you can always find a place to hang out by yourself and read or take in the beautiful scenery. There is a nice sitting areas ´indoors´ and multiple sitting areas outside. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and the most efficient storage systems I´ve seen. Literally every little nook and cranny can be used for storage. They have paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and other accessories to help you enjoy your various stops.
The Crew: The crew was amazing, A+ all around. The boat has a skipper, a first mate/hostess, and a chef.
Andreas was our skipper. He is a very cool, calm and collected skipper. A man of few words, he takes great pride in knowing the Mediterranean like the back of his hand. Once he got to know us, he was great in tailoring our itinerary to what we would like, rather than just going through a one-size-fits-all agenda. He always knew the best (and secluded) swimming areas, the most scenic beaches, and the best times to travel. He is a top notch skipper. One of my favorite things to do on this trip was to go up to the flying bridge while in transit with a nice glass of whiskey and chat with Andreas about our route, boating, the islands, or life in general. Like I said, he is a top notch skipper.
Lina is the boat´s first mate/hostess. She maintains order on the boat and makes sure everyone is having a great time. She speaks many different languages, and makes sure everyone knows the safety protocols and rules of the boat. She also has a knack for knowing when you need your next cocktail or when it´s time for a snack. She makes sure the boat is always in the best condition, yet you will never notice her doing it. She also has great recommendations for when the boat docks at a new island.
The chef on the boat was fantastic. He was trained in London, I believe, working in fine dining restaurants. Each meal was a fantastic one, with various themes. Each time we would go to a port that had a market, he would get fresh ingredients and we would eat amazing Greek foods. All-in-all, I think we had one or two meals off the boat because his food was just that good. And do not ever worry about there being not enough food!
Overall the crew as an A+ and made the vacation feel like we were amongst friends. I can´t stress the importance of this enough.
Itinerary: We did a seven day cruise along the Cyclades Islands. Our highlights included Syros (unique amongst the Cyclades with its beautiful marble streets), Kythnos (with its vibrant nightlife), Milos (its most breathtaking views), and Kea (with it´s great swimming and where we had an amazing Greek seafood dinner at one of Andreas´s good friend´s restaurant). My suggestion is to listen to the skipper, as he knows what you want to see and knows where to take you. Trust in him and you will have a blast, especially if the sea is not agreeing with your plans.
Overall, if you are thinking about doing this trip do it! It was a trip of a lifetime, and a lot of it had to do with Daddy´s Hobby and its crew. They are very professional, yet make you feel like you are at home.
