We caught a Blue Star ferry from Santorini to Naxos in July 2014. We decided to book a cabin for our family of four so we could leave our belongings secure while we wandered around but in practice we just sat at a table for the 2 hours so it was probably unnecessary. Our cabin did not have a window and was in the middle of the boat. However if you want to have a sleep the cabins are not too expensive. It was quite chaotic when the boat arrived about 15mins before the departure time. The cars came off and had to push through all the waiting people and then trucks were going in and out unloading containers. The foot passengers were just waiting in line for some time and just entering in batches. Then suddenly the trucks stopped and everyone moved en masse in via the vehicle entry. While still in the vehicle bay the doors were up and we were moving. The luggage was left in certain areas depending on which island you were travelling to. If you have a cabin you need to go to reception to get the keycard. For departure they come to the cabin to remind you to get ready and then you all go down to the vehicle bay and wait while the ship docks and then endure the piercing siren as the doors open. Disembarking is quick. At Naxos we took a little time to find a taxi but could have walked into the town centre. The ship was nowhere near full. I did not really see why we had to arrive early for the boat as it takes only a few minutes to collect your ticket if you have booked online and then you just wait in line for some time. We decided to have lunch and sit at the restaurant till the cars had all come off. There is not much to do at the port at Santorini but there are several restaurants. Overall the experience went smoothly and was quite cheap.
