  • "Almost like a sea cruise"

    I caught the Blue Star 2 Ferry from Kos to Rhodes . It was an early morning sailing with the sun still rising. I bought a coffee once I’d boarded and sat on the top sun deck watching Kos disappear into the distance. I enjoy the three hour journey and would recommend Blue Star to anyone
