A very good service from Patras to Bari but the price of the cabin accommodation is very high for the facilities provided.

We have travelled twice on Superfast (Bari to Patras and Partas to Bari) on both trips the service was very good, staff friendly and helpful and the cabins clean and comfortable. We would travel with them again. It would be nice if there was a sit down waiter service restaurant instead a self service.

I've travelled on this route several times, and each time I've enjoyed it. The staff are courteous and competent and the food is exceptionally good. This time I didn't have a berth (to avoid being in a cramped cabin with strangers) and managed to sleep well on a bench once the commotion of the passengers embarking at midnight (in Igoumenitsa) had died down.

A very average confort for a night crossing. It was impossible to get a bed and sleeping in a chair is not easy. We arrived 90 minutes late.

Patras is the third largest city of Greece, and the capital of the Achaea prefecture of Greece and of the Region of West Greece.
The first traces of settlement in Patras date to the 3rd millennium BC, in modern Aroe. During the Middle Helladic period (the first half of the 2nd millennium BC), another settlement was founded in the region. Patras flourished for the first time during the Post-Helladic or Mycenean period (1580–1100 BC). Ancient Patras was formed by the unification of three Mycenaean villages located in modern Aroe, Antheia and Mesatis. Mythology tells us that after the Dorian invasion, a group of Achaeans from Laconia, led by the eponymous Patreus, established a colony. During antiquity, Patras remained a farming region but in Roman times it became an important port.
Today Patras is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Greece and is popular with tourists.
Bari is the capital of the Puglia region and the Province of Bari. After Naples, it's the second largest city on the southern part of the Italian mainland. Situated on the Adriatic Coast, the city is a major industrial city in Southern Italy, and has been a major commercial, fishing and ferry port for centuries. First settled by the Peuceti an ancient Italic tribe, the area has been successively dominated by Greek colonists, Romans, Byzantines, Normans, the Aragons, the Angevins, the Holy Roman Empire, then the Bourbons under Napoleon. It was incorporated into the modern country of Italy in 1861. There are 3 distinct parts: "old town" on a peninsula to the north, the Murattianno to the south, and the central area, which is a major shopping and office zone, in the middle area. Notwithstanding the tone set by the dominant religious architecture, a number of trendy restaurants and nightclubs have sprung-up to foster a very vibrant nightlife.
