Booked a crossing from Athens to Naxos but one day before departure the departure time had suddenly been moved from 14:00 to 21:00, arriving at 2:30 in the morning.. Customer service number doesn't pick up the phone and just drops the connection after 15 minutes of waiting

We used Hellenic Seaways to travel from Athens to Mykonos, Mykonos to Paros, Paros to Santorini and then back to Athens. The boats are very fast and beautiful inside with comfortable airline seats and heaps of room but they staff have no idea how to read a clock. The first leg of our journey was fine as we left Athens... More

First the good. The ship is excellent - we went from Heraklion, Crete to Santorini on the 7th July 2016. That's it. The crew I encountered were rude and, if I am honest, fairly stupid. When we arrived in Santorini a daft we employee was shouting at everyone to hurry up and get off the ship as it was leaving... More

We booked all our ferry transfers on Hellenic Seaways. A few days before our departure we got a mail telling us two sectors had been cancelled. We rebooked these on another liner and wasted a lot of money calling Greece to try and get our money back from Hellenic. And a day later we got a mail informing us another... More

People say that the ferries are unreliable. In my opinion this is a lie. The go on time and the service are good on bord. They even have table service in the VIP section and i recommend this class on the long trips. Less people and better seats. But also eco is good! The ferries are modern and fast!

We booked it online. Nothing to say for disadvantages. We used it to reach Santorini. Aircondition was good. We knew about its high prices at drinks and foods so we hold our private bag with our needs. Toilets are very clean! Better to get business class for noisy area at economy class with no big differance at prices.

After many years of no connection between Thessaloniki and Sporades, it is announced that Flying Cat 4 will run daily from Thessaloniki to Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnisos. Our joy was dampened by the fare. Bought a ticket to Skiathos on June 29 for 48€. On the way back I saw a sign at the Hellenic Seaway offices in Skiathos town... More

I travelled from Piraeus to Naxos and from Ios to Piraeus using Hellenic Seaways, and they were excellent. Comfortable to travel with and also on time, if not a little early on both occasions. Worth travelling with.

Super impressed with High speed 7 . We took the boat from Mykonos to Heraklion. A 5 hour trip , VIP tickets, 98 Euros per person. The boat was perhaps brand new or recently refurbished, very clean, modern amenities, staff very friendly ,table service. We stopped at Paros, Ios and Santorini. Food wise they offered sandwiches, baguettes , sweets ,... More
