Dear Nova crew, Berj’s dream vacation was to sail the Greek islands. He asked me to coordinate it. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to put together such a fabulous trip. Nova is a beautiful catamaran. You the crew make certain everyone from all age groups have fun. We enjoyed the various islands with all the special sites. The water activities were also fun. Food was extraordinary and presentation was beautiful. Thanks for making Berj’s dream vacation a reality.

Thank you Captain Costas for the awesome buoy 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 adapt to my own cooking again. Lastly thank you Dina for the 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
Dear Costas, Dina and Takis, Thank you so much for such a wonderful holiday. We’ve had some great holidays before but this must be the best ! Captain Costas, nothing was too much trouble. Your knowledge of the islands meant that each day was perfect. And you even found octopus for us to look at up close, and dived for sea urchins for our aperitif. Takis, the food you cooked was amazing ! I don’t think we’ve had a week of such deliciousness. You have spoilt us all and we are extremely grateful for the thoughtfulness and care around our different dietary needs. And Dina, what can I say ? There seems to be nothing you can’t do. You are always so cheerful and made us feel very special for our holiday. Thank you for taking care of us !
Dear Captain Costas, Dina and Takis, Thank you for the trip of a lifetime ! From the moment we boarded Nova, we felt comfortable being in your friendly and capable hands. Captain Costas, you navigated through the most stunningly beautiful waters, and brought us the most magical destinations. The beautiful painting we bought of your home town Hydra will occupy a prominent place in our home. Thank you as well for all the fun water activities, you’re the greatest ! Dina, you are “super”. You assisted the Captain, tended to Nova, and catered to our every need without skipping a beat. We love you ! Takis, the meals that we enjoyed on Nova were by far the most delicious we have ever had. You are truly a master chef. The ingredients were fresh, the preparation was extraordinary, and best of all… your charming presentation. Thank you all for your expertise, warmth, and kindness. You will forever be kept special in our hearts, till we meet again. Love.
Dear Costas, Dina and Takis, Fourth cruise on Nova ! We have enjoyed the meltemi thanks to Costas’ talent and professionalism. We had a great time, relaxing and enjoying life thanks to Dina’s welcome. And exceptional food and meals thanks to Takis, always eager to please everyone. Many many thanks to you ! And thank you to Nova owners for their delicate attention.
Notre 3ème expédition sur Nova fut aussi merveilleuse que les précédentes. Nous avons découvert des nouvelles îles des Cyclades accompagnés d’un fort meltem de force 7 ! Nous avons surmonté tout cela avec brio et un grand sourire. Une nouvelle découverte cette année fut Stelios, ce talentueux chef qui nous a initiés à la cuisine sous vide, un vrai délice ! Capitaine Costas et Dina sont toujours aussi présents et pleins de délicates attentions pour nous, rendant ce voyage mémorable. Thank you very much, we will miss you !
One word describes this vacation aboard Nova: Epic ! Exceeded our expectations on every front, from the most amazing food with crazy good service. Dina rocks and Costas is fantastic, always a calming presence. We are a party of 8 (4 couples) from the USA. Many of us first trip to Greece. I hope to return soon ! Best trip ever Thank you so much for your amazing service and friendship. So many moments that will last a lifetime. Can’t wait to do it again !
Thank you very much for giving us a wonderful trip ! Every day, even every minute, a happy surprise to us. We are so lucky to be in good hands, you took good care of us. We enjoyed many precious moments and Greek cuisine. Thank you all ! I will be sure to recommend my friends to experience cruising Greek islands with Nova. Thank you very much for making our ten year trip a very warm and wonderful one. It is the most unforgettable experience. The boat is very very nice and well maintained. Everything is in perfect harmony….Thank you and I wish to bring my children back one day into you boat.
Nous pourrions en dire tant. Mais ce voyage n’aurait pas eu cette saveur sans son équipage et sa constante attention à notre égard. De magnifiques vacances grâce à vous, un grand merci et à très vite !

We enjoyed a relaxing cruise in the northern Dodecanese islands. Nova is extremely comfortable compared to its peers, with perfect layout and excellent seakeeping. The crew has been professional and reliable in any respect. Food onboard was delicious and better than any restaurant ashore.
