  • "Great service, but inadequate information on the web-site"

    My experience of travelling with Blue Star ferries was very positive, however, the booking information on their web-site was so sparse - or even occasionally totally misleading and wrong - that, as I now realise, I had not so much booked myself a ferry passage as bought a cat in a bag. For example, it did not occur to me that my outward trip was booked without a reserved place, so, in theory at least, I could have ended up sitting on the floor for the eight hours of my journey. In order to avoid finding myself in the same situation on the way back, I had, on the advice of a friend who travels regularly on Blue Star ferries, to book myself a whole new trip (in my own cabin), having, in effect, foregone my original return booking and lost the money I spent on it. In sum, Blue Star ferries REALLY need to up their game when it comes to online booking. Otherwise, they provide a brilliant service. 😊

  • "Night boat to Patmos"

    We travelled from Piraeus to Patmos via the Blue Star Ferries / Superfast boat and back. It wasn't immediately clear from the booking where we had to go but the folks at Blue Star Ferries were quick to answer email questions. For anyone thinking of doing the same trip it goes from Port Gate E1 and the X96 bus goes directly there from Athens Airport, it’s about a 90 minute journey. We took a night boat that left at 23.55 we had a quite a long wait at the terminal (our doing) it was a shame there wasn’t a café in the terminal or nearby. To be fair there appeared to be one in the terminal but it was closed all day on the day we travelled (Saturday 29 July). Otherwise, toilets were spotless and I found a plug to recharge the mobile but there was little else there. The ferry was excellent and anyone thinking of travelling overnight you should really try and book a cabin, we had a 2/4 berth with en-suite, well worth the money when you see everyone else sleeping on floors and chairs! The other benefit of pre-booking a cabin is that you don’t have to join the mad rush to claim a seat to sleep on. Catering on the boat was great too we ate in the restaurant but there were a number of options on-board.

  • "Lovely ride"

    It could nothave been nicer. The boat was cool (very important then), the cabin luxurious, the dining very good and the staff very friendly. Punctual both ways. I will do it again.

Piraeus Guide

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.

Patmos Guide

The Greek island of Patmos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, just off the west coast of Turkey. Skala is the port town on the island and is also the location of many of the most popular attractions. To the north of Skala is Meloi Beach with is picturesque and is shaded by trees. In the village of Hora there is the Monastery of St. John which is a popular site as is the Cave of Apocalypse which is thought to have been the sacred cave where Saint Ioannis heard the voice of God and wrote the Apocalypse. In the cave visitors are able to see the cross that was engraved by Saint Ioannis along with three small cracks in the rock through which the voice of God came, symbolising the Holy Trinity. The island is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible where it states that its author, John, was on Patmos when he was given (and recorded) a vision from Jesus.
