Nikolaos is our drummer on Carnival Conquest and a great guy and team member.A very serious as well as fun and agreable person, Nik has been a very possitive member of our rockband.

Albert S, 3 years ago

His multiple contract experience has been very helpful for everybody as he often has good insight and useful information. Nikolaos does learn material quickly. Once we go through a song he ingrains it and plays it consistently every time. Even if a lot time has passed he will have the notes on his charts and follow procedures from rehearsal that others forgot about.
