Best experience ever

The captain and the skipper were wonderful. Knowledgeable and nice. The catamaran was clean and the food served was freshly cooked on site. Well organized!

Great Cruise, bad customer service

The cruise itself was great. The crew was fantastic. I am not sure what the folks at "Santorini View" actually did other than take our money and pass our details to the crew. I had two requests - 1) to be dropped off at the airport after the cruise 2) no mussels to be served (jsut becasue I was asked about my preference). I was assured these were possible. Well we got served mussels and the cruise company told us it was not possible for their car to drop people off at the airport. They sounded like they didn't receive any of our requests. What's the point of a booking company if they are not going to pass the requests on? Anyway, good cruise though.

Sail Away

First of all, we are glad to hear that as you already wrote "The cruise itself was great. The crew was fantastic." but with regret, we realize that the two stars review does not reflect the provided and agreed service but two incidents for which we are not solely responsible. To be more specific, about your transfer to the airport we didnn't have any information from Santorini View. We have just been informed that before booking your cruise, in one of your questions in the chat with Santorini-View, you asked if you could be dropped off at the airport and you received a positive answer. Santorini-View receives hundreds of questions every day. Special requirements should be noted during the booking of the cruise. When you booked your excursion you didn't mention anywhere in the cruise information that you wanted us to transfer you, after the end of the excursion, to the airport. Moreover, when we asked you with email message for details about leader traveler and other special requests, you wrote only the following: "Fish and cooked prawns are ok but no other shellfish please (no oysters, mussels, etc.). Thank you!". However, when you informed us on the day of the cruise that you wished to be transferred to the airport, as well as that the agent had arranged it for you, we did not refuse to take you to the airport. We just informed you that we couldn't leave you inside of the area of the airport because it is not allowed by the local laws in such vans to do it. Our van picks up and drops off all over Santorini except the airport and the port where all the allowed vehicles have a special license. Our driver left you 2 minutes walking distance from the departures airport as you already had been informed and agreed. About the mussels, it was indeed our fault as we had not informed the crew even though Santorini-View had informed us about the allergies. However, you were asked about any allergies on the safety briefing that is obligatorily done by our crew during the boarding and there was nothing mentioned about the mussels or any other allergies. Taking into consideration the above, we believe that your two stars review to be unfair because as you mention, you had a "great cruise and a fantastic crew". We are strictly judged for a mistake during the transport for which we are not responsible but also for the mussels allergies that you did not mention during the safety briefing.

Great for our private sunset tour

My sons and I rented this catamaran for a family sunset cruise. It was perfect for our family and the crew was very accommodating. We had a marvelous time.
