Greetings from Paros island!

We has a beautiful sunny day with 32C. Our guests toured the oldest cave in Europe a 45 million year old cave at Andi Paros which is Tom Hanks" favorite Greek island. They also swam at Golden beach, saw the Cycladic town of Lefkas and marble mines.

The Greeks in the islands are as 'happy go lucky' as always and blame corruption at the government level for the economic situation and the anarchist demonstrators in Athens for the bad press. But a few blocks across town or out in the 4500 islands, everything is as usual -friendly people, warm sun, timeless sites and great times!

2010 Aegean Adventure Cruises begin in calm, sunny weather!

Hello from the good ship Margarita.The boat has been sanded, varnished and beautifully maintained for our new season. The first week has brought beautiful calm weather and warming sun. The demonstrations in Athens were not noticed by our guests who were there for 3 nights and even less out in the friendly islands. Today we are in Hydra and the fisherman are bringing fresh bonito tuna for our dinner tonight! Tomorrow we sail to Milos and stay under the beautiful cliffs of Kleftiko! If we catch our own tuna we will have a barbeque under the stars!
