We are a family of 3 including our 10 year old son. We are planning to spend 3-4 weeks next summer in the Greek islands.
We plan to use ferries to get around most of the time, but in my research I’ve discovered these small yachts where you can rent a cabin for a week on a boat with 8-12 other people.
Some routes stay on the Turkish coast, while others tour the Dodecanese Islands.
These don’t appear to be pampered luxury cruises by any means, but I wonder if they are safe and enjoyable for a family. (Some indicate that no children under 12 are allowed.)
The other issue is that it appears that you don’t book with a specific boat, but rather through an agency that places people on boats several days before the trip. There appear to be many independent boats who use the agencies to fill their boats.
One agency that seems pretty ubiquitous is Blue Cruise. I’d love to hear any feedback from a yo who has used this agency or others to book one of these tours. Thanks!
