We were delayed due to weather on our trip from Heraklion, Crete to Santorini. The staff were not extremely helpful getting us rescheduled. We really had to push them. The boat itself was nice but a lot of people got sick and the bathrooms got pretty gross toward the end of the trip.

Took the Blue Star Delos from Pireaus (Athens) to Santorini and was unsatisfied with the amount of smoke on the aft (open air) deck. Opted for the "VIP" section on the Hellenic Seaways Highspeed 6 back to Pireaus and was incredibly pleased with the difference. The 6 cruises at 40 kts (vs 26 kts on the Delos), and the ride... More

My daughter & I recently traveled on the Hellenic Seaways Cat 5 ferry and had a wonderful experience! We have read so many reviews about this ferry and heard two extremes--really great and really bad. We were worried and wondered if we made a wise decision to travel by boat. We think it all depends on the weather conditions. Thankfully... More

We took the Highspeed 5 from Mykonos to Santorini and the Highspeed 6 from Santorini to Athens (pireaus). We traveled business class on both trips and let me tell you it is worth the cost. We sat in business class with a table but looking back we would have chosen regular business class seats. Table seats are good for groups.... More

We took Hellenic Seaways (big green boat) from Mykonos to Santorini. I think the boat is referred to as high speed 5 which left Mykonos around 2pm. This was a great big clean boat that exceeded our expectations. We decided to buy business class seats, which were about 10 euros more per person, but we felt it was worth it.... More

We booked the High Speed 5 from Santorini to Mykonos and loved it! We were in the VIP section, and thought it was totally worth the extra price. The VIP section is on the top of the boat, with super comfortable leather seats, a bar and a cafe. The business and economy sections looked OK but VIP is definitley the... More

Traveled late April 2014 between Heraklion and Santorini. The crossing was very choppy and probably more than 80% of the passengers, including myself, suffered from seasickness. Despite this, the staff remained calm and courteous, kept the cabin as clean as possible, distributed sick bags and collected waste continuously. I was very grateful for the excellent care and customer service.

Read a lot of negative reviews here and it made me nervous but found it to be a pleasant trip. I bought my tickets online ahead of time and then picked them up at the gate for departure with no problems. The economy with table seats are nice with more leg room but two chairs facing two other chairs. The... More

This is one of the main companies of ferries and flying cats boats. The boats are quite fast and modern but is still manage by greek so don't expect a polite service and a smile. The service is basically a transport service so they would take you from A to B when they can and as fast as they manage... More

Took the high speed #5 from Santorini to Paros and then from Paros on to Mykonos 3 days later. You do get the feeling like your in a herd of cattle but overall it seems efficient and it works. The first leg arrived on schedule and left it seems like no more than 10 minutes later. The Paros to Mykonos... More
