Well... When it comes to Hellenic Seaways, your experience is heavily dependent on which sea vessel you're going to end up with. Most are old but refurbished. You can really... read more

My girlfriend and I booked the Flying Dolphin from Spetses to Athens which turned out to be a horrible decision. The cabin smelled like fumes the entire ride and there was no fresh air for the 2 hour journey which included a stop in Hydra. There was no organization or order in boarding and deboarding the ferry. I had to... More

We were going from Piraeus (Athens) to Poros, and with our flight arriving early, we only had this choice. It is a catamaran, a fast boat that gets us to Poros in 1 hour and 15 minutes. We exchanged the tickets that we had bought online earlier with the actual tickets in no time at the harbor. The check-in was... More

We travelled with Fast Speed 4 in July 2015. Very pleasant trip, though there was some sea northbound. The cafe on board will probably not get any Michelin stars, but you don't have to starve. A stable ship, attentive crew and good on safety. Interesting too see the other islands on the way to our destination. The ferry was aprox... More

If you go with Hellenic or "go to hell seaways...!" Even you take a high speed boat you should count in at least one to 1½ hours on delay. This was a trip form Paros to Rafina... we more than close to miss our plane home.

We tolk tre ferry from Santorini to Heraklion. First all the passengers were stoved into a small building, where we would wait for the ferry. We received no information on the delay and had to wait in the crowded room for an hour. When we finally got on the ferry, they didn't do anything to catch up with the delay... More
