"Travelling on Blue Star Ferries"
I have been travelling with Blue Star Ferries many times over the past few years, from Kos to Rhodes, Rhodes to Symi, Symi to Santorini, Santorini to Athens and a few more journeys. I have always found this service to be very good, very comfortable ferries with enough room and sevices to make even a long journey enjoyable, I will always use Blue Star when travelling between the Greek islands.

"Punctual and efficient service"
My husband and I recently travelled from Pireaus to Syros with Hellenic and their service was punctual and efficient. They provide all of the essential services required for a three hour crossing. Good points: paperless check in & plenty of seating Mediocre points: table seating was uncomfortable after a while - bad design. Cinema style seating very good however. All announcements over the tannoy were in Greek, slightly unnerving when you need to know when to get off the boat and you don't speak the language!

The Blue Star ferries are wonderful. They are clean and comfortable and the food and drink available are of good quality and reasonable prices, especially when compared to those on British travel services. Seating can be difficult to find on busy crossing but that is the case the world over unless travelling first class. A great, cheap way to travel throughout the Greek islands. Friendly and helpful staff are easy to find.

"Well Worth The Extra!"
After few nights in Santorini discovered only ferry to Rhodes/Symi leaving 3.20 am! Consequently decided to spend extra £20 on outside luxury cabin which was worth every penny and enabled us to arrive at Rhodes completely refreshed and relaxed at 11.30 am. Also impressed with quality of ferry and helpfulness of staff

We set off at 3.40 am, very organised at the ferry terminal and fascinating to watch the activity involved with unloading and loading a ferry. We stayed in a cabin, which we where shown too efficiently and we were asleep by 4.10am, i would say. A great experience and would do it again

"Ferry Piraeus - Patmos"
As before this time again I have had an excellent time meeting new friends and old acquaintances on the line, it is easy to connect and with all the bars and food available until late at night a joy and part of the experience of travelling.

I travelled with a friend from Rhodes to the UK, with my car. This part was easy, the ferry staff were friendly and helpful. We found the restaurant reasonably priced and the general comfort on board was good. No problems, would travel with Blue Star again. I was told by a frequent traveller that it is worth joining their loyalty scheme for discounts and offers so I will do that.

"Piraeus to Kos Blue Star 2 ferry 8/9 October 2014"
Great experience and a very impressive service. Only difficulties encountered were finding which pier the ferry left from and not knowing that the electronic ticket had to be changed to a boarding ticket, if this could be stated on the electronic ticket I'm sure it would help travellers not familiar with the system. Would definitely use again and recommend.

"Very pleasant voyage"
We did the overnight ferry from Syros to Kos. It worked very well and was a bit of an adventure, and a wonderful experience. We stayed up late sitting at the back of the ship watching the islands disappear and staring into the wake! I woke at 4 am and watched the sunrise over the islands which was magic. We had a 4 berth cabin for 4 of us (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and it was surprisingly spacious, even with 5 large bags/suitcases and hand luggage. It all seemed very efficient. It was very punctual and they kept to the schedule very well, and we arrived exactly on time. We got an early morning call, even though we had not ordered it, as we arrived at Kos at 06.05. I recommend picking up the tickets in advance from a ticket agencey, as I understand you can do this even a few days in advance. The escalators from the ground floor to the upper decks meant we did not have to struggle with our luggage. It was remarkably easy to book on line, compared to in previous years.

Excellent experience: great welcome from the staff, cabin was lovely (clean and very comfortable like the rest of the ship!) and the restaurant was pleasant too. Definitely an experience i'd like to go through again and happily recommend to anyone who is thinking of using Blue Star.
