    The best thing we have found with Minoan Lines over the years is their efficiency and helpfulness over changing return dates. No fuss they just do it . This is real peace of mind.

  • "A very pleasant crossing. Staff were friendly and helpful"

    We enjoyed the journey with no problems. The staff were pleasant. The food was adequate but a little expensive. We were required to leave our cabin rather prematurely we thought and then had a long wait for disembarkation.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyable"

    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 crossing from Ancona to Igoumenitsa with Minoan Lines"

    I gladly write this review, because the trip was a really good one. Punctual from the beginning to the end, nice and friendly staff, clean. We were really lucky, nice crossing started in Greece and the return looked like beeing in a cruise. Goodbye

  • "Ancona Igoumenitsa and return"

    The ship left the Igoumenitsa with 1 houre delay, and depsite the really quiet sea we arrived to Ancona with more than 2 hours delay. To be improve the landing procedure, you have to spend 30 minutes inside the garage with stupid people who turn on the motor to go nowhere. Really expansive self service, €3.20 for a coffee at the bar; on the return we brought our food and water. I recommend the ship but you have to be aware of these things.

  • "Trieste Patra with Sofoklis Venizelos"

    The trip was overall 1 hour late, in Igoumenista may be two hours late but caught up one hour to Patra. NO wifi, no internet stations to rent, but the ship was relatively empty and clear. TV with Greek and Italian stations available, archades room (permenantely empty). I did not use a cabin, cannot evaluate their services there.

  • "did what it said on the tin"

    I had a passage only ticket, which meant kipping where I could and hoping that my belongings stayed safe. There was no information on the ticket or emails explaining what to expect; most crucially it would have been helpful to be directed to the deck where the sleeping chairs were rather than just dismissed at the reception desk. I also think ferries like this ought to have lockers for valuables/luggage belonging to passage only customers. There's plenty of wasted space on these vessels in the form of multiple lounges and expansive foyers; converting just a small zone to secure storage lockers would be inexpensive and would make the world of difference to travellers not having to lug their belongings round the whole time they're on the ship.

  • "not completely satisfied"

    I'm disappointed for the service on board. We booked an outside cabin but in front of our window there wasn't the sea but lifeboats. The cabin was a 3berth cabin but we found only 2towels. The ship needs more maintenance because few lights in my cabins didn't work, problems with the sink and the toilet doesn't flush down everytime. The cabin was too small considering the price that I paid, over €900 for 2 crossings and Not even the breakfast was included in the price. You have to pay for everything. Boarding process slow and not well organized. Next time I'll try another company.

  • "too expensive"

    I've been to Croazia on June with Jadrolinjia and the prices on board are affordable. 4 berth cabin €4,00 extra each person, 4berth cabin with Minoan €96 each… I think it's too much for a 6hours crossing. On board, €4,00 for a coffee. And not to mention the lady at the reception that she does not know what it means to be polite (if someone does not want to work with the public I think it's better if they work in the engine department)
