In September, my wife and I completed our second week long charter aboard Icarus with Robert and Veronica. Our first sailing experience was back in September 2018 as newlyweds, and we couldn't have had a better experience. Since our original voyage, we have spent the last three years reminiscing about the wonder time we had. So in June of this year, we decided to reach out to Robert about booking another charter for September.

We knew that traveling from the United States would be a challenge in itself due to COVID restrictions. From the first email to Robert, he was ready with answers to all of our questions regarding entry into Greece, and provided all of the forms and documents we would need in order to make our journey a flawless process. Shortly thereafter, we were booked for another week sailing around the North Ionian.

We arrived in Corfu on August 31st after spending a week in Paris. We stayed the Telesilla Hotel (also our second time) which is walking distance from the marina at which Icarus is moored. The service and food and the Telesilla is second to none on Corfu. We recommend a trip there for dinner regardless of whether or not you are a hotel guest. After spending the day lounging at the hotel pool, we boarded Icarus late in the afternoon on September 1st.

Robert and Veronica greeted us with open arms, and it felt as if we had never left. The boat was spotless, the Scottish and American flags were flying, and drinks were ready!! After enjoying a few evening cocktails, the 4 of us headed into Corfu Town for a wonderful dinner, and an evening strolling through the streets of the city.

The next morning, we were due to set sail on our week long journey, but were greeted with heavy winds. Robert made the recommendation that we delay the onset of the trip for one day due to the anticipated sea conditions. Robert is a master at his craft, and makes every effort possible to ensure all of his guests have the most enjoyable experience possible while on his boat. After a short discussion, we decided to take Robert's advice and delay the onset of our sail. Being as that I am prone to motion sickness, I really appreciated Robert and Veronica's honest assessment of the situation. I feel that there are other skippers and yacht companies that would have forced us into a terrible position, and started our trip off on the wrong foot.

Instead of setting sail that morning, Robert and Veronica took us on a tour of the island of Corfu, where we would visit multiple towns, bays, and the Paleokastritsa Monastery.

The next day, the winds and died down and we set sail for Sivota on the Greek mainland. We stopped for a swim at Lefkimmi, and enjoyed a wonderful lunch prepared by Veronica.

Sailing day #2 took us from Sivota over to Lakka harbor on the Island of Paxos. We enjoyed and afternoon of swimming, followed by a fantastic meal at Akis Restaurant.

The following morning we set sail down the East coast of Paxos and stopped for a swim and a late breakfast in Mongonisi. After breakfast, we crossed back over the Ionian towards the port town of Parga on the Greek mainland. As you arrive into the bay, you are greeted by a panoramic view of pastel colored buildings built into the hillside. Something you would expect to see along the Amalfi coast in Italy. After an afternoon of exploring the town of Parga, we enjoyed a wonderful captains dinner prepared by Robert himself. The evening was filed with fun, laughter, stories, and full bellies.

Day four brought us back over to the southern end of the Island of Corfu to Notos Panorama. Notos Panorama is a bar/restaurant with a private beach area. The owner of the property has spent decades turning this property into a tropical paradise. While wondering through the many trees and flowers, it was easy to forget you were in Greece. There is one dock at this location and is first come first serve. Robert got us to this location in time for us to enjoy all of the sights amenities this place has to offer.

Our final sailing day was spent traversing North back towards Gouvia marina. We stopped at multiple bays to swim, eat, and enjoy out last day on the boat.

For anyone considering booking a charter with Robert and Veronica, we couldn't say enough amazing things. You will always feel safe with Robert as captain, and will be treated to an experience of a lifetime.

Veronica is an wonderful hostess, and even better person. Whether you want to eat, drink, sunbath, or talk, Veronica has you covered.

After two trips, three years apart, we feel like we have made a friendship that will last a lifetime. Thank you Veronica and Robert for your amazing hospitality . Until next time....

We spent 2.5 weeks in Greece, and this was - by far - the best part of our trip. Robert and Veronica took amazing care of us and crafted an experience that I'm not sure I could improve if I tried. They struck the perfect balance of making us feel at home, providing expert guidance, while giving us space to enjoy and relax - just the two of us. We always felt like we had a say in what we would do each day while having plenty of their priceless local intel to guide our activities, inform where we stopped, and give us conviction about the things and places we skipped over.

We're so glad we made this part of our trip and have already recommended Robert and Veronica to some of our closest friends.

They will take amazing care of you - just like they did for us.

We just got back from a lovely vacation sailing in the Ionian Islands on Celebration Charters with Captain Robert and Veronica, a fantastic couple that MADE our trip. We are from Dana Point, CA where we have gorgeous beaches and landscapes but we were hardly prepared for the turquoise water and surrounding splendor that we found sailing on a 41 foot Catamaran with this charming and knowledgeable couple. We started in Gouvia Marina and sailed all over these beautiful islands for close to a week. The boat was spacious and brand new with four state rooms with four separate bathrooms. Robert is a fantastic captain with and an incredible boatsman. He maneuvered the boat effortlessly in and out of slips and always found the perfect spot to anchor overnight. He has a great since of humor and endless stories about the history of each place we went. Veronica is an incredible cook and charming hostess and she has a nice way of making everyone feel comfortable and taken care of. Both Robert and Veronica always had great restaurant and shopping suggestions. All in all this was an incredible, relaxing, interesting, entertaining and fun vacation. We would highly recommend it to any couple, family, family with children or multiple couples. Thank you Robert and Veronica and Celebration Charters!

Spent a day in the very capable hands of Robert and Veronica onboard Icarus.

Leaving from Gouvia Marina we set off to Corfu Town and then along the Corfu coastline stopping off in a number of places to dive off the boat for a spot of snorkelling and also to view landmarks from The Durrells (which pleased my wife no end).

Veronica prepared a great fruit platter during the first stop with a bottle of fizz, together with a delicious lunch later on. She was also on hand to ensure drinks were topped up whilst Robert sailed and gave a running commentary based on his extensive local knowledge

This is a brief testimonial regarding the wonderful week of sailing on Captain Robert and First Mate Veronica's wonderfully maintained yacht. My remarks are from a sailors point of view since my wife Mary Ann and I have our own sailboat. I will mention some ideas about the yacht, Robert and Veronica and the sailing route we took.
Icarus is a wonderfully maintained 50' Beneteau. It has a new 110 HP engine that is quiet and fast, keeping us on schedule when the winds did not cooperate. We had a wonderful spacious cabin and efficient for our clothes, etc. The well kept teak deck made it easy to get around, even for a 77 year old like me. We generally sailed with the jib and even it pushed us as high as eight knots on occasion.
Robert and Veronica were an excellent team for both sailing and anchoring in any situation. Captain Robert was no Captain Bligh and he gave the four of us some input in sailing decisions. Veronica prepared excellent meals and we all enjoyed the evening gin and tonics and the wonderfully prepared sea bass at the Captains Table.
The route chosen criss crossed back and forth from the mainland to the islands Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu. We saw some lovely upscale towns on Paxos and anchored in a beautiful cove on the mainland. Regularly Robert added colorful history as we passed various sites.
All in all, it was an exceptional sailing adventure for either an experienced sailor or a first time novice.

Mary Ann's Review:
I loved every minute aboard the Icarus! As a sailor's mate myself, I know the feeling of stress while under sail, the complications of anchoring as well as docking. It was pure bliss to know it was up to Captain Robert and his First Mate, Veronica.
Robert and Veronica are a magnificent team. Robert is full of interesting information and historical facts. I had no idea I would learn so much!
Veronica provided us with delicious meals which she expertly prepared below deck while we relaxed in the sun. She would disappear for awhile and reappear with meals that looked, and tasted, like they came from a five star restaurant. Which, in reality they did. Icarus earns five stars all around!

It was not difficult to spot Icarus amongst the forest of masts in Gouvia Marina, as she was the only one flying the Saltire and what a beautiful yacht she is. We and our two American friends had a truly fantastic and memorable week aboard her. Robert and Veronica are a brilliant team, incredibly easy to get on with, and they go out of their way to make sure you are supremely well looked after.
They devised a perfect itinerary that included everything we wanted and more! Veronica’s breakfasts, lunches and Captain’s table were utterly delicious and Robert was a mine of information as we sailed along and exceedingly patient with those who wanted to help with the sailing. When we finally arrived back to Gouvia, we wished we could do it all over again! If you are debating a trip- BOOK IT NOW!

Rob is an outstanding captain and a walking encyclopaedia on everything we passed, Veronica the perfect hostess who produced the most amazing food and ensured our glasses were never empty.

We didn’t have a fixed idea of what we wanted to do but with a brief of only ‘snorkelling and caves’ Rob and Veronica put together a fantastic day which included cruising along Corfu’s beautiful coastline, swimming in crystal clear water where the fish ate out of our hands, pristine sandy coves and bays, and snorkelling around some of the lesser known coastal features (ask Rob about hidden caves, underwater arches and rock jumping!)

If you’re looking for a unique holiday experience, want to see parts of Corfu (and beyond) that few others have or just want to get out and try something completely different for a day then this is definitely for you. Whether you opt for a day charter or a week+ you absolutely will not regret it.

Thank you both for a wonderful day and unique experience - Steve, Chantel, Charley, Evi, Tony & Jenny

Can't recommend Celebration Charters (Robert & Veronica) enough. From the second Robert met us at the marina, when we stepped out of the taxi, we were put at ease and made to feel very welcome. Our first day and night was spent in the marina on the beautiful Icarus, getting unpacked, settled in and introduced. But the next morning we cast off and spend the next 10 days sailing around the beautiful Ionian Sea. Veronica is amazing, spending hours below deck whilst everyone else enjoys the sun and stunning views, preparing food and drink and keeping the boat ship shape. Robert (Captain) is in charge on deck navigating and keeping everyone who needs entertaining entertained. If you just want to sun bath when sailing that's just fine, and who wouldn't, but if you want to know everything there is to know about the areas, and endless story's to be told, then Robert is the man. Robert and Veronica know the best places to visit at the end of a each day sailing and the most beautiful places to visit during the day. Caves, bays and beaches, swimming snorkelling and sun bathing, we did it all and never a dull moment. If you have any questions please feel free to message me and I will give you an honest answer. We were on board Icarus with Robert and Veronica for 10 days and loved every minute. Richard, Christine and Adam

Such a beautiful relaxing day on board the fabulous Icarus. What Robert doesn’t know about Corfu is not worth knowing . He is your personal library of information as well as the best Captain. At all times I felt like we were in super safe hands onboard Icarus. The boat is spotless, and in tip top condition . I felt like I was in a dream, sailing around Corfu island , but I wasn’t, it was for real, and I couldn’t quite believe how beautiful it was. We set sail down the coastline to Corfu town , where we anchored and sat drinking bubbles and tucking into a lovely fruit platter . We then left there and sailed off to another location that was secluded and peaceful for lunch, prepared by Veronica , who is the best hostess , keeping our drinks topped up and making sure we were comfortable all day long. Veronica can cater for all food and dietary requirements. We set sail again With gentle music playing in the background and I felt like I was in that dream again . We then anchored up close to the shore line and went swimming in the beautiful blue sea. We had an amazing unforgettable experience , one I will never forget , and it’s up there , with just a few of the best moments I have ever experienced. Robert and Veronica are just such lovely genuine people, that you can’t help but like. The go out of there way to ensure you have the best time . Don’t just think about booking a day or weeks charter , just do it , you will not regret it . Marnie P
