Naxos Piraeus Ferry reviews

  • "Great experience!"

    Was a little choppy that day but overall would go that route again. Very comfortable.

  • "business class"

    Although the business class area is well worth the extra amount, it saddened me to see selfish people lying across whole sets of seats, limiting the space for others.

  • "Blue Star Business class"

    My husband and I have been on Blue Star ferries before. But 10 years have passed and we now have a 4 year old. I decided to book business class for our return trip from Naxos to Pireaus. It was a 5 hour trip. And it was an extra 10 euros for each of us. I'm glad we did as it was spacious and had terrific views as you are facing the front of the ship. The negatives for me were that some people I saw hogging whole sofas to themselves . The atmosphere was a bit stale. It was still very crowded in there but not as bad as the rest of the ship . If you are going to be on this boat for 5 hours then go for it. Otherwise do economy. Much more vibrant. The ferries themselves are lovely as usual.

  • "Like the good old days"

    A lot has happened with ferries in Greece since I visited in the nineties. Now, fast and sleek jet ferries have taken a lot of the market. They'll get you there, but you will be more or less locked to your seat for the entire voyage. The Blue Star line operates slower, but comfortable ferries. You can stroll three decks or choose to sit inside for the duration. So, if you prefer ferries like back in the day - only with better services - and don't care if the trip takes longer, the Blue Star is a good choice.

Naxos Guide

The Greek island of Naxos is part of the Cyclades group of islands that lie in the Aegean Sea. Naxos City, or Chora, is the island's largest town and capital and is built amphitheatrically on the island's west coast. It is also home to one of the biggest ports in the Aegean Sea. The town is popular with tourists and as a result there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for them. The small island of Palatia, which extends from the mainland of Naxos, is the town's emblem. Located on the small island is Portara, which is a monument resembling a door standing alone, without any walls attached to either side. A visit to Portara is advisable, especially after your swim, whilst the sun is setting.

The island is also well known for its food and for producing the famous Naxian potatoes, wine, Kitron liquor productions and the popular cheese called Graviera. There are many restaurants located throughout the island serving local produce to the many tourists who visit.

From the island's port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.

Piraeus Guide

The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.

Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve has a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
