Rhodes Thira Ferry reviews

  • "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.

  • "Very impressed"

    I was very impressed with the service. Punctual, clean, efficient and friendly. I have not used Greek ferries before but will not hesitate to go Greek island-hopping by ferry again... Many thanks.

Rhodes Guide

The Greek island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands and lies in the eastern Aegean Sea, to the north east of the island of Crete and south east of Athens. The island is also a short distance off the coast of Turkey. Rhodes Town is the island's capital and main town and its Old Town is a rich tapestry made up of different civilisations and cultures. The city's medieval walls, its fortress like buildings, the gates, bastions, narrow alleys, old houses, fountains and busy squares combine to make all visitors feel as though they have stepped back thousands of years. Outside of Rhodes Town the island has a number of small villages and beach resorts that are popular with tourists. The main ones are Faliraki, Lindos, Kremasti, Pefkos, Archangelos, Haraki, Koskinou, Afantou, Paradisi, Trianta and Embona.

From the island's port, ferry services depart to Piraeus by both conventional and high speed ferry. The island is also connected to the rest of the Dodecanese Islands, the Cyclades Islands and to Crete during the summer months.

Thira Guide

Thira is the official name of the island of Santorini, Greece and is located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of mainland Greece.

Thira is essentially what remained after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera.

With its dramatic views, stunning sunsets and beautiful beaches, it is no surprise that Thira is hugely popular with holidaymakers.
