The boats is what Greece is all about, unless you fly and many smaller islands don't have airports and the rate is double sometimes, triple the boat ticket. You MUST pick them up in person and the HS office is right outside the port of Piraeus so it's convenient. They allowed me to change my tickets due to additional business... More

thanks to their bizarre PAPER ONLY ticket policy I was NOT allowed to board a boat from one of the islands back to Athens (I had bought the ticket 3 weeks ago online) and subsequently could missed my flight back to London. There was ZERO help or empathy from the staff and NO ONE wanted to help. Worst firm ever.

Travelled from Pireaus to Santorini then a few days later to Mykonos. Everything went smooth, we did pre-purchase VIP tickets that gave us reserved seats that were nice. Ferries travelled on time, staff were efficient and food barely edible, but what would one expect. The food is the same in all sections of the Ferry. No problems with any part... More

The Hostess who was collecting the tickets claimed the printed tickets were not acceptable and had me run to the ticket office to get the tickets that have a... More

We took Hellenic Seaways high speed from Santorini to Crete. It was comfortable and on time. We would take it again.

I know Greek ferries can be hit and miss, but I took Hellenic Seaways 3 times in a week, and all travel was on-time and a breeze. Sailed on the Nissos Mykonos, Highspeed 5, and Flyingcat 3. All ships were very clean and a breeze to navigate. Most importantly all ran on-time, some even getting to the port earlier than... More

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

The ferry was late arriving at approximately 13:50 when we, plus approximately 25 other passengers,... More
