We took the 7:15 am High Speed 6 from the port of Peiraias to Santorini. The trip was everything it promised to be and the service, the boat and the timely arrival and departure made a big difference. When planning a trip to the Greek Islands, Hellenic Seaways is the way to go

Below is a copy of my complaint entered on the Hellenic Seaways website on 27 July to which I had no reply: I purchased 2 tickets at Aegina Port for the Flying Dolphin XV111 on 8 July 2014 for the 13:35 hrs ferry to Agistri. The ferry was late arriving at approximately 13:50 when we, plus approximately 25 other passengers,... More

We booked the VIP seats on the upper deck. A minor problem with the door opening.....and guys come on, no WiFi inside this modern ship...?... More

Definitely take the high speed ferry and book a few days early, we left it to the last day and we had only first class seats available which cost 40% more than a regular ticket

We book 4 tickets (two adults & two infants) from Rafina to Naxos island on 4/8/2014.We selected Flyingcat 4 over a larger (and slower but cheaper, since normal ferry tickets are almost 50% cheaper than the Flyingcat's tickets - 32 euros vs 52 euros) ferry, in order to save time and our kids from frustration until we reached our destination...

We read all the horrible reviews about the fairies. Our main concern was the smoking. We hate smoke. We upgraded to business/first class we did not get any additional special service but we were able to get a seat very easily and it was not crowded at all at all. On the high-speed five people were only allowed to smoke... More

Booked online for my trip from Piraeus to Thira (Santorini) and collected the tickets at the counter at Piraeus. Only drawback was that they did not put 4 of us in a family at a table of 4 but eventually upon boarding I made the switch with some other passenger in order to be in my group. On the positive...

Booked their fast ferry "Flying Cat 4" from Mykonos to Rafina. Points wise: 1. There are 2 ports in Mykonos and not indication in the ticket about where to board. We rushed like anything when we got to know that we came to wrong port. Unfortunately many others also faced the same problem. 2. Indicated to collect tickets from their... More

Book online and pick up your tickets before catching the ferry. Do not expect any smiles of happiness either at the ticket office or on the ferries. NOT allowed. NO toilets and a kiosk from hell - OMG, absolutely no freindly smiles here to be seen

We took the high speed ferry "flying cat 5" to Poros. I think it's an accident waiting to happen. There's hardly any exits, no open windows, people pile their luggage everywhere and if you had to get out in a hurry you'd be in trouble. You sit in airline style seats with 3 together on the windows, and 2 sets... More
