Hellenic Seaways Customer Reviews

  • "Ferry ok BUT port a bit disorganised "

    The ferry service from Piraeus to Hydra is fast and efficient. Bit of a scrum getting on the ferry but otherwise good. Don’t forget anything on the dock - the ferry won’t go back once shoved off. Some poor sole watched her bag disappear into the distance. The only negative would be Piraeus Port itself. It is not necessarily clear where specific ferries depart from - a sign post or two might help - perhaps that is the Greek way!!!!

  • "Commission or mark up?"

    The crossing from Volos to Skiathos was great but we pre booked tickets and there seemed to be a mark up from the face value of the ticket and what Direct Ferries charged. Still waiting for a reply. Also the Volos office charges 1 Euro per ticket to print - which I do understand

  • "Efficace"

    Très efficace, rien a dire si ce n’est une très forte pollution fumée bateau sur le pont et une insupportable odeur de fuel dans la cale (10 dernières minutes avant l’ouverture).

  • "Got us there but a bit disappointing"

    Be warned that there is no sign within the gate area telling you where your ferry is leaving from, and also that the company name on your ferry may be be quite different from the company that sold you the ticket. You just have to ask everyone in sight for 'the ferry to X' and leave plenty of time to negotiate the slight chaos. The actual journey was smooth and uneventful, though having expected to be able to watch the sea- and landscape, we were very disappointed to find out that seats were assigned and we were in the centre and couldn't see anything outside as we sailed along. But ferry was clean, staff were efficient, timing was OK (about 15 minutes off departing and leaving).
