All Aboard (1955)
The Despina (affectionately known as “Despinaki”) departs from Mykonos en route to Syros, Tinos and Piraeus. The passengers are all settled in, with their hampers full of treats. They intend to
thoroughly enjoy what was then a journey of several hours from Mykonos back to Piraeus, provided the weather held; but when the boat was caught in those torrential gales that only the Aegean, of all the seas in Greece, can unleash, then all the feasting, music, dancing and romancing that characterized these crossings were abandoned on the spot, replaced by nausea and screams.
