Guest Comments 2016
For the best chef and the best crew. They do the best job for us. They treat me and all the group in a messing way. The trip is excellent in everything. This memory is going to stay in our heart forever. Thank you soooo much for what you did for us.
Best wishes for you all. God bless you!
Thank you for a trip of lifetime. An amazing experience and priceless memories. Thank you for the wonderful service where nothing was too much trouble and for spoiling our very lucky children. We will remember you all forever and will hopefully get to travel with you again one day.
We are two families from Atlanta, Georgia on our first trip to Greece. This is what we did NOT like about our voyage on Project Steel…
This is what we LOVED :
1)Captain John : If you look up ‘’captain’’ in the dictionary, John’s name is listed. We always felt safe in his capable hands.Best Captain ever!
2)Peter(Takis) : Such a caring Indiradual who was always there to help (and secure wakeboard and paddle boarders).
3)Anthony(Adonis) : He perpetuates beauty externally and though hs preparation of food. Everyday was a culinary adventure.
4)Nick(Spiderman) : He made sucks we all had a fabulous time with him on water sports, especially Dominico!
5)Maria. Maria embodies everything that is beautiful about Greece! We begged her to go home with us.
6)Roger : the first person you see when you wake up and the last you see when you go to bed. Always smiling!
Project Steel was a great boat but without this crew it would not have been as wonderful. Because at the end of the day, it’s about thepeople along the journey with you!
Over and over again the crew of Project Steel exceeded our expectation! Many thanks for every thing we look forward to be with you next August!
A perfect holiday on board Project Steel. Hoe relaxed it made us all feel.
The staff so professional, friendly and kind doing all the toy cars they didn’t seem to mind! Exciting water sports especially the jetski. Brave little Max out in the deep sea! Antony, Maria, Roger, Peter, Nick and Captain John will all of the children his biggest fans. Amazing lunches,dinners and chocolate cakes, sorry for all the requests for milkshakes!
Salads, grocery, but we still asked for more getting our appetite swimming back from shore! Max as a Captain in sunglasses and hat and Teddy reading the tides currents and maps! Maria and Leo new best matters going not to be tripped up carrying the plates! Always looking to be on the biggest boat but we know this is the best ship afloat!
From ages 2 to 72 we have had the best holiday it’s all to sad we want to stay!
Thank you for absolutely everything you are ALL AMAZING and we wish Nick a speedy recovery!
The week was a dream. Thanks for showing us a little bit of Greek-magic-from your azure waters to your unparalleled flavors to your cliffallotted towers and overall wanting and the Greek people. This will go down asone of the best vacations of lifetime, and it was all due to your incredible kindness, hard work and perfect planning. Thank you we will be back!

Best my friends,
September 2014 Περάσαμε 10 θαυμάσιες μέρες πάνω στο Project Steel με ένα αρμονικό πλήρωμα κι ένα καπετάνιο που μας άραζε στα πιο ειδυλλιακά και όμορφα σημεία. Φεύγουμε με τις καλύτερες εντυπώσεις απ’ όλα και όλους, σκοπεύοντας να το επαναλάβουμε και του χρόνου.
August 2014 It was a great trip! Beautiful Greek Islands, blue sky and amazing view. Clear water, and great mood. You were unbelievable crew. Always there for us. We had a great time, enjoying the best vacation.
Thank you all, hope to come back soon!
August 2014 We will not talk about the beauty of the Greek Islands because that is a fact, rather we will talk about the wonderful crew that made our voyage more than a yacht experience.
If you are even in the company of such a crew then you are as lucky as a King!
Best regards to all and keep up the good work!
Mohannad, Adel, Haytham, Alaa, Mohammad
July 2014 We are a family of five coming from Switzerland and a friend coming from Bruxelles.
We just spent a fabulous week travelling from Faliro to Serifos via Amorgos and its fabulous monastery, Koufonisi and its wonderful beaches, Schoinousa, Irakleia ...Paros...
Coming to Greece we were looking for authenticity, peace, quietness beauty.
And that is just what we found!
The captain was excellent at finding beautiful unspoilt spots to swim and do all sorts of water sports.
The team was great, nothing to say! Professional helpful enthusiastic kind and last but not least they all seemed to get along together. The food on board was very good, homemade and fresh and the comfort of the beds was excellent. Thank you to team who made our trip a real success.
