We booked a twin cabin with sea view which was really spacious and comfortable. The whole ship was smart and clean and it never felt busy - no queues at the self-service and plenty of tables in the bars and restaurants. All in all a very enjoyable experience and we arrived in Greece feeling refreshed for our onward journey.

"Our trip made special "
We traveled with our dog and the trip was superb. There was no waiting about in the car, we drove on the ship parked and went to our cabin. Amazing.

Ok, good standard, much better than last time we travelled, we then went with another ferry operator and it was not good. I can recommend Minoan Lines and will travel with them again.

We took the junior suite, but the cabin showed few fault: tv was not working; door could not be locked from the inside; the ligh on the bedside table was really low. In the end was anyway a comfortable trip with no problems.

Located in the Marche region of Italy, the city of Ancona is located around 280 km to the north east of Rome and is situated on the Adriatic Sea coast between the slopes of two extremities of the promontory of Monte Conero, Monte Astagno and Monte Guasco. The city's port is popular with passenger traffic and is one of the main ports on the Adriatic Sea. There are many things to see and do in the city. The city's cathedral, Ancona Cathedral, is dedicated to Judas Cyriacus and was consecrated dating the 11th century and completed in 1189. The cathedral is characterised by its dodecagonal dome over the centre, which was altered by Margaritone d'Arezzo in 1270. The cathedral's exterior has a Gothic portal which is ascribed to Giorgio da Como (1228).
The city's port is popular for passengers travelling to countries surrounding the Adriatic Basin including Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Albania and Montenegro. Destinations available include Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Dubrovnik, Bari, Patras and Igoumenitsa. Facilities in the port include a cafe, toilets and a small shop. There is also short term and long term parking available. There are also designated parking bays for disabled drivers.
The Greek city of Igoumenitsa is located in the north west of Greece and is separated from the nearby island of Corfu by the Gulf of Igoumenitsa. The city was, until the second part of the 20th century, a small port whose residents were mainly employed in one way or another with the fishing industry. The majority of the city's buildings are post war as the city was badly damaged during the Second World War. With many of the buildings constructed in the 1960's -1980's there are not many sites of historical interest to see in the city.
Despite this there are some nice examples of modern office buildings lining the main street which stretches along the city's coastline. Most of the city's restaurants have terraces which enables diners to take in the lovely views of the coast whilst dining on fresh local produce. The best time to visit the city is between May and September as there is little rain and the temperatures are nice and warm. This enables visitors to explore the city and its surrounding countryside.
