Boarded this ferry to travel to Athens from Mykonos. Very spacious cruise with a great ambience and with all amenities.. Booked the tickets online and collected the hard copy of the tickets from their office just beside the boarding port.

We used this service to go to Hydra. On our return they cancelled the boat without informing the passengers. Most people just waited for the morning ferry but we had a flight. Our only option became taking a small boat and then a taxi back to Athens costing us 250 euros. After serval emails and phone calls they refuse to... More

Reading many trip-advisor unpleasant stories it was a hard choice to make between two companies. Somehow we decided to go with Hellenic - may be browsing their web-site made us feel more positive towards it, rather then the opponent. All-in-all - both rides (Heraklion to Santorini and Santorini to Mykonos) went smooth from all aspects of convenience/customer service and overall... More

I took Hellenic Seaways on a day trip to and from Hydra. When you arrive at the new port in Piraeus, the ticket kiosk is very easy to find – as there are a row of kiosks for all the ferry lines that work in Piraeus. I not only picked up my ticket for Hellenic up also picked up my... More

Used the flying dolphin service for a trip to Aegina and was happy with the speed and comfort, even if there was a nice smell of diesel the whole way, it was cheap and quick and did what it said it would
