Heraklion Mykonos Ferry reviews

  • "Great ship, fast and easy. Assigned seating could be improved."

    We hadn't ridden on ferries for years...and were excited about the boat ride again. It was easy, fun, and efficient. The only thing is that we were delayed, I assume by the weather. Thankfully we weren't in a rush but if you have connections to make (either by boat or plane) be sure to budget for that. The food was okay. A bit pricey but they have a captive audience. Although seating is "assigned" it's a bit confusing. No easy way to figure out the seating arrangements, and my husband and I were sat one in front of the other, instead of side by side, despite buying tickets together. Lots of confusion too at every port regarding who should sit where, and people get possessive over seats despite there being many, many open seats available. I'd recommend just making it open seating for most and that would be fine. And overall the interior could use an upgrade, but it was acceptable.

  • "Recent trip"

    Could not fault Direct Ferries on my recent trip from Heraklion to Mykonos on the Tere Jet was perfect in every way, The staff were helpful and bars were well stocked, Clean and efficient. Only one slight beef was that it was no smoking and got told off by an very officious woman. Other than that its a great service and enjoyable.
