Crewed Yacht "Icarus" in Corfu
"5*-A truly memorable family sailing week! It was a very tough act to follow a week spent in a glorious villa on Corfu.....but we can honestly say that the crewed yacht sailing experience, arranged through Nautilus and laid on by Robert and Veronica at Celebration Charters, was one of the most fun, scenic and memorable weeks we have enjoyed as a family. Icarus is a beautifully-presented yacht, kept meticulously and absolutely spotless on arrival. Robert works hard to ensure the boat is always in tip-top condition and ready for all activities. Meanwhile, Veronica is tireless in keeping guests fed and watered, and the breakfasts and lunches were varied, really delicious and enjoyed by the whole family." P.S. 2016.
