  • "Nice trip"

    Reading the reviews just before we boarded made us worry about our choice for Ventouris. But everything was perfect. We sailed in september with the 11 pm boat. The cabin was clean, the personnel friendly. Overall a very good experience that we can recommend to everyone.

  • "No customer attitude "

    Traveling back from Durrës we had the problem of the age of our daughter: she is 12 and had to pay as adult. When you buy the ticket online and give in the correct date of birth, you should get the correct category. After all the attitude of the personal in Durres harbor is unfriendly. We felt treaded more as sheep’s than as customers. However we chose the ferry for ecological reasons, to avoid flying, which would have been faster, friendlier and less expensive!
