Thank you for the wonderful trip! Everything was fantastic: the crew, food (amazing!) and the atmosphere! See you soon <3

22 -29 JULY 2018

Congratulations! You have succeeded in converting us into keen sailors We all loved every minute of our week on board. From exploring ship wrecks, to diving for sea urchins, eating new and delicious dishes and swimming in new spots every day, it was magical! Thank you guys. You can make a great team and more than that you make us to come back again soon. Xxx

04 -14 JULY 2018

Thank you so much for the most incredible holiday EVER!! You guys have been so helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble for you. Thank you Captain Costas for the awesome biscuit rides and managing to get us off, (it can be a hard task ). Thank you Akis for the absolutely amazing food, you are an incredible chef and you are going to make it very hard for me to go home and adopt to my own cooking again ☹. Lastly thank you Dina for he countless cocktails and lots of laughs, you have been so much fun and really spoiled us. This has been a trip I’ll never forget! Lots of love

20 -27 JUNE 2018

This was the most amazing week of my entire life. This was an unforgettable trip. Captain Costas was so nice and helpful and he is an amazing captain. He always made sure the guests and the boat was safe & he took us to the most amazing/ beautiful places. I wouldn’t have asked for a different schedule than the one he gave us. He also docked the boat in the BEST places. Dina is the most wonderful woman ever. She is so kind, generous, helpful and funny (she has the best laugh). She walked around Hydra with me and my sisters and we had the most amazing time. She is great with kids and I feel so comfortable around her. Ans as for Sotiris, he is the most amazing chef EVER. I have never been so well fed in my entire life. He is also very kind. He allowed my sisters and I to make smoothies in the kitchen with Dina (which was also very fun). I will never forget the meals he made for my family. I am so sad to leave the boat but I know that I will definitely try and come back. I thank them for everything! Goodbye <3

3-10 July 2017

Dearest team Nova, reading the pages of this book proves that you are more than professionals. It is crystal clear that you treat all of your guests like royalty and it is so appreciated! Our week with you was unforgettable. The memories of private anchorings in caves that aren’t on any maps combined with the most beautifully presented and delicious cuisine will never fade! Sailing on the magical Nova lead by her admiral was amazing and transported all of us from our daily routine to a place where we could just be. You will all forever be in our hearts and a put of our extended family! Much love and appreciation.

August 2015

We had high expectations on this cruise but Kostas, Dina and Stelios you really managed to surprise us with your professionalism and the way of doing things in detail. Kostas you can be very proud of your crew! Where on earth you found lovely Dina? A person who is talented in so many ways: her positive attitude, eye on beautiful table settings, excellence in customer service and ability to be everywhere to help us all just in the right time, as if she could read our minds. Stelios is the master chef. We enjoyed every meal. A couple of times I got tears in my eyes simple because the food was so delicious and beautiful. Kostas you are a captain with high professionalism and camling personality. Your taste in music is fantastic! In Arnold Schwarzeneggers words: WE WILL BE BACK! Love, Satu, Markku, Lina, Katriina, Mikko, Klaudia & Kaius.

June 2015

KΩΣΤΑΣ, DINA & STELIOS,
The week was the best we could have hoped for and we had a wonderful time. For two of us, who were apprehensive about sailing trip, the whole experience was a relaxation.
To Kostis thanks for applying all your local knowledge and sharing with us all the great places in the Cyclades.
To Dina you are like us and always in good humor and managed all of our needs. Thank you!!!
To Stelios your food was amazing and you should publish a cook book. We would buy it! We have gained weight but have no guilts! Bravo!
Nova is a wonderful yacht with wonderful people.
