I am speaking for the 5 of us when I say how glorious our reunion trip with you both has been.

The service and food presentation were lovely; tasty and healthy meals, great cocktails and wines but most
of all great camaraderie among all of us.
I know Eileen had a great tim as part-time captain and we al so much enjoyed the beautiful bays we visited to swim and snorkel.
Can’t forget the shopping either, so Keith could replenish his T-shirt collection and me finally get to Pussers!!
After all the many painkillers we tried, Cleo’s are still the very best!!
We wish you both all the hapiness and fun you have ahead of you.
We thank you for making our experience aboard the Gypsy Princess most UNFORGETTABLE!
PS: Thanks for a great 71st birthday celebration!

Achilleas and Cleo

Thank you for an amazing week on the water.
Everything about the trip was spectacular and we would not have changed a thing.
Every meal was a culinary delight and it was fun to taste new food as evidenced by few leftovers!
Thank you for making our family vacation so very memorable…You were both wonderful hosts!!

May the seas rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rain fall gently on your deck
And will we meet again
May God hold you ever so gently safe
In the palm of his hand

May God continue to bless your journey and keep you safe

Dear Achilleas & Cleo,

Where to begin….I guess from the beginning. From the moment we were greeted and stepped onto the boat we knew we were in paradise and starting a dream vacation.
We will always have many wonderful momories from tis trip. Paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling and a very memorable trip to the Baths!
Then of course the dinghy rides to dinner in our dresses and hoping we don’t get splashed!
Cleo your cooking is fabulous! Breakfasts, lunches and dinners!
Achilleas, you were always so accomodating with everything with everything we wanted to do and all the places we wanted to go. You were a fearless leader
Much love from Durham, North Carolina,
John & Jeaninne

Thank you for the amazing trip aboard your beautiful yacht. The whole experience was surprising: the food was wonderful, the sailing exceptional! Cleo’s cooking was innovative and gourmet, better than any restaurant we ate in! Achilleas is a first class seaman and skipper who is skilled and familiar with all seafaring tasks.
The Gypsy princess is definitely more a Princess than a Gypsy! We really built a friendship during our short time on board and we hope to see you both again in the near future!

Achilleas and Cleo,

I cannot tell you what a wonderful vacation we have had.
It has truly been a trip of a lifetime.
So relaxing…We will never forget Cooper Island and the great snorkeling or the buoy breaking and Cleo telling Achilleas:
“I have some bad news… We are on the beach!” 🙂

Cleo, the food was amazing, you are a wonderful cook and an even better hostess.
Achilleas, you are the best captain and a patient teacher, nurse, musician and all around entertaining guy.
We would love to come to Greece and have the 2 of you sail us around the Greek islands.
I am certain that it is very beautiful!
Thank you both again for this wonderful vacation.
We made some great memories that you will both be part of. It was a great family time.

Ramona, Julie, matthew

Achilleas and Cleo,
