"Piraeus to Naxos"
My experience with Hellenic sea ways was good. The ship's facilities were clean, catering was satisfying, staff was helpful and the ship departed on time although it delayed to arrive in Naxos.

"Take the boat"
Good departure time that suited our travel plans from Piraeus to Naxos. No problems with the 5 hour long trip since the areas were big to move around and the seats were comfortable. Limited food options for such a long trip.

"Blue Star Ferries trip review"
We booked our tickets online, the system was easy and user friendly. We collected the tickets at the kiosk next to the departure area, all the staff were helpful and friendly throughout the trip. The service helped us have a successful start and finish to our holiday, we would certainly use the service again :)

"Crossing Pireau naxos 2 ways 27/9 and 01/10/2015"
I left the Pireau in the early morning at 07:01 with the fast ferry, fortunately the sea was really calm. The hard part was to book the tickets online without knowing how the ship was composed to choose the right place. Seats are everywhere and they are not reserved at all. On the Dolphin ferry on the upper floor of the first class there was no toilets so you have to go to the lower floor, joust think if someone fell not well what a chaos! On the return journey the sea was rough, and you could feel it on board the Blue Star, we felt sick in many. Than we found better spot to stay quiet. I will always choose the first class because is less chaotic and I choose the Blue Star! I can say anything about restaurant because I did not want to eat or drink to avoid being sick.

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.
Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.
Naxos is a Greek island that lies in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group of islands. The island has a rich and interesting history and has been ruled by a number of different civilisations during its history, including the Byzantine, Frankish and Venetians, all of which have left their mark on the island. The island has a flourishing agricultural economy thanks to its fertile terrain and visitors will see both olives and grapes being grown.
Popular attractions on the island, aside from its lovely beaches, tend to focus around Hora and include the Venetian Castle. Also popular with visitors are the island's visitors with one of the largest being Filoti which is situated next to Mount Zeus and Apiranthos which is next to Mount Fanari. Another popular way to spend time on the island is to take to one of the many trails on the island and to go hiking into the mountains.
The island's port is also located in Chora. From the port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.
