A winner of many shipping awards since their inception nearly in 1967, Anek Lines is the largest shipping company in Greece, and the parent company of many leading operators in the Mediterranean. Anek Lines’ international ferry services run from the Italian ferry ports of Venice and Ancona to Igoumenitsa, Corfu and Patras, while domestic ferry services operate in Crete, the Dodecanese and Cyclades regions. The Ancona routes and the crossings between Piraeus and Crete are operated in a joint venture with Superfast Ferries.

The fleet is contemporary and adheres to high standards concerning safety and quality, containing all the amenities associated with a leading ferry company.

Anek Lines Customer Reviews

  • "A pleasant journey"

    Despite our journey being delayed by some 4 hours due to weather conditions between Karpathos and Crete, (we had been informed of this by a text message in Greek so we needed a translation by a friendly waiter) we were happy with our travelling choices to Karpathos. As a party of six, including two elderly people, we were helped by your staff on every occasion, for example shown the lifts so we could avoid the flights of stairs. For comfort we chose the aircraft seat in the lower lounge, it was comfortable here and fairly quiet as we were now travelling through the night. Just one suggestion to make it even more relaxing, especially as we were now on board from 10pm until after 4am, the lounge with the reclining aircraft seats need to have the lighting dimmed so it is easier to sleep. We would certainly travel again with you and were content with our journey despite being very tired.

  • "Superb"

    The ferry was more like a luxurious cruise ship....clean, quiet, comfortable, and no shortage of friendly, helpful and competent crew. Food and eating options were just fantastic as were the catering facilities. Of my many ferry trips, this was easily the best service I have been on.
