"Athens to Crete easy sailing. "
Boarding is far less formal than Cross Channel Ferries. Your arrive, you board your on!! The ships are bigger with more of an atmosphere to them. Food, as on all ferries, is expensive but the quality and variety is good and the staff very friendly, our cabin was clean and roomy. The sailing was very punctual and comfortable.

"A pleasant surprise"
The boarding at Praeus was a fraught affair in the middle of a thunderstrom with little time to spare we discoverd that what we ahd printd out from Direct Ferries was not the actual ticket and we had to queue at the ticket office to get those. Howevr once aboard it was like being on a luxurious cruise ship. Charming crew memebrs insisted on helping us with our luugage to our cabin, the restaurant was delightful and verybody seemd only too pleased to help. What a contrast to Irish Ferries and our own local horror known as Wightlink
