"Santorini to Rhodes 7 October 2016"
We travlue Star 2 which seems to be very new and has good facilities throughout the ship. It leaves Thira conveniently at 00.50 and gets into Rhodes at 09.00. We had a two berth outside cabin. It was quiet and spotlessly clean with own bathroom. The beds were comfortable and we slept through til 07.30. Very worthwhile and I would do it again. There appears to be a very nice restuarant as well as the usual cafes and if I did this by day I think I would give it a try. The prices looked reasonable. I would recommend this ship and the cabin is well worth the extra cost.

Our voyage from Santorini to Piraeus was smooth. We had a cabin, which was spacious, clean, with hot shower and clean towels and toiletries. We arrived in Piraeus rested and on time. As we were approaching the port of Piraeus, the air conditioning allowed some diesel smell in like airplanes do before they start moving on the ground. The ship was clean and tidy throughout and had plenty of seating space in the lounges. As our voyage started at midnight, most cafes, restaurants and shops were shut and one could only choose from a limited selection of drinks and snacks. It would be nice if the ship had wifi available. Free shuttle bus took us from the point of arrival near to the port exit/metro station.

"Great service a facilities!"
We recently travelled from Kos to Santorini on Blue Star 2. It was brilliant with no hassles. We had allocated 'airlounge' seats which we paid about £2 extra for. These are big seats and they are very comfortable. However, the ferry is so huge, there are hundreds of other places to sit too... Overall, it was a great experience and well worth the money- much easier than flying with a lot less hassle. Just remember to pick up your ferry tickets at the port before travelling, as they do not accept emailed tickets.

"Good experience "
The ferry is really beautiful and it made our trip comfortable. The only thing is that I find ridiculous that there is no free WiFi, I believe that nowadays is ridiculous to pay for that as an extra service.

"Comfortable and clean"
Very good way to travel, an organised company, no problems. Cabins very clean and comfortable. Would advise to buy tickets in greece rather than on line as its more expensive online booking

"Book a Cabin"
For the small price difference I would recommend booking a cabin to sleep in the overnight ferry trip to Rhodes from Santorini. The main bar is closed at night, so you'll want a nice place to rest :)

"OK but ..."
We got there early and were told to park under the ramp. As we sat down to eat we were called down to move the car. Given the deck was almost empty this seemed ridiculous. The food was lukewarm and trays of food were sitting on top of other ones. Felt sorry for the catering staff because you could not even see what they had on offer. We found the one spot we could sit and not hear a TV. Crew member came and turned them all on in the air lounge and there was no-one there! I asked him to turn them off but he refused. No-one watches TV so why not have some quiet areas? Loos kept very clean.

"Travelling on Blue Star Ferries"
I have been travelling with Blue Star Ferries many times over the past few years, from Kos to Rhodes, Rhodes to Symi, Symi to Santorini, Santorini to Athens and a few more journeys. I have always found this service to be very good, very comfortable ferries with enough room and sevices to make even a long journey enjoyable, I will always use Blue Star when travelling between the Greek islands.

"Punctual and efficient service"
My husband and I recently travelled from Pireaus to Syros with Hellenic and their service was punctual and efficient. They provide all of the essential services required for a three hour crossing. Good points: paperless check in & plenty of seating Mediocre points: table seating was uncomfortable after a while - bad design. Cinema style seating very good however. All announcements over the tannoy were in Greek, slightly unnerving when you need to know when to get off the boat and you don't speak the language!

The Blue Star ferries are wonderful. They are clean and comfortable and the food and drink available are of good quality and reasonable prices, especially when compared to those on British travel services. Seating can be difficult to find on busy crossing but that is the case the world over unless travelling first class. A great, cheap way to travel throughout the Greek islands. Friendly and helpful staff are easy to find.
