"exploring the Greek islands "
during sept 2015 we explored some of the Greek islands using blue star ferries. We found the ferries to be excellent modern ships which were very punctual and reliable. We booked online and collected tickets at ports with no problems. A great way to explore numerous islands at a reasonable cost.

"cheap and easy way to get to Syros"
The ferry was a little bit unkempt and the food was pretty terrible but the ship was punctual and very comfortable in general.

We had a very early start for the ferry at 07.25 from Piraeus, but even though we arrived at the port an hour ahead of that time we were allowed onto the ship straight away, which meant we got really good seats inside the economy class cabin. The voyage itself was uneventful except for the high winds at Naxos which necessitated interrupting the disembarkation of passengers as the ramp started to drag sideways across the end of the quay. The crew were very quick and highly professional in their response to the situation and everyone got off safely at the second attempt. The facilities on board were good and we had a very pleasant journey.

"First time user of Blue Star Ferries"
I used Blue Star Ferries 3 times within the span of 5 days to get from Piraeus to Naxos to Santorini and back to Piraeus. It was surprisingly easy to book a ticket online. Because Blue Star always had the cheapest rates, I figured that it would be pretty crappy. It wasn't, and it was a much better ferry experience than I expected! The ferry allowed us to board ahead of time (when we were the first port), there was plenty of room, the seating was fairly comfortable, there were eating and bathroom facilities, and the ferry left on time. I was also nervous about obtaining my tickets in person, since I had only been able to reserve the tickets online (wasn't allowed to print an actual ticket). This, too, was easier than expected. I just showed my reservation # to someone at the Blue Star Ferries kiosk at whatever port I was at, and my tickets were available for me. One thing I'd suggest to any other first time user, though, is to pick up ALL of your tickets (if you have multiple trips) at one time, as you never know if an office is going to be closed at the time that you need to board your ferry (i.e. a very late ferry). Lastly, we also took an overnight ferry, and this too was much better than expected. Though we only had economy tickets, I didn't expect to have so much space to sleep. I figured we would have to sleep on the floor or in bus-like seats. It wasn't the best sleep I've ever had, but it was better than expected for an overnight ferry ride.

"Good if you book a salon seat"
There were not enough seating places on the ship, so we had to walk around a lot and eventually take a seat on the floor. If you book this ship, pay the extra cost for salon seats (don't just take deck seats). The ship is clean, punctual, there's good airco and there are a lot of catering facilities.

After leaving our luggage at the car deck :) (Why do some people take their luggage and suitcases upstairs?), we pent sometime in the sun on the 6th floor. The staff at the reception was very friendly. Picking up the luggage is stressful because everyone else is trying to get their luggage from the racks.

Booked online, everything straightforward. Only thing I wasn't aware of was that you need to collect actual tickets from the office at Piraeus and as the ticket office was right where you board this wasn't a problem. Both boats very clean with helpful staff, very pleasant (but long!) crossings.

"Trip in the Aegean between Piraeus and Amorgos"
Travel time of 9 hours in the Aegean was nice under the sunset to end our trip. This trip allowed us to discover the islands and look at what was on offer at the island ports where we stopped (Syros was impressive with nougat and Turkish delight vendors!). Even in economy class the ship was nice, we have everything you need; even Internet access for a small fee. We are delighted to have selected Blue Star Paros through Direct ferries and look forward to our next trip. Thierry & Laurence

"Trip to Piraeus July 2014"
Great pity that in a structure the size and scope of ship like the Blue star Paros that credit cards are not accepted on board! We were almost out of money, the ATM was out of service and it was activated just 1 hour before arrival so 2 stars for this. The rest all ok though and despite the rough sea we did not feel in the least bit unsettled, unlike the hydrofoils that makes you vomit out your soul in the event of rough seas.

"Naxos trip with BSF Naxos ferry"
Wonderful Greece delivers again! Why travel with charter when it is so easy to book the travel on your own! This trip I made with my husband and our girls ages 3 and 5! The journey began 31st May, perfect time in Greece, and lasted until June 15th. We flew from Copenhagen to Athens with SAS. Landed at lunch and took a taxi to Piraeus, the bus is not recommendeded! The boat went in the afternoon so we had plenty of time. With reservation number we got the tickets in the harbour at Blue Ferries office. We boarded the ferry one hour prior to departure. I don't recommend the alternative fast ferries when travelling with children as they can move freely aboard the bigger ships. The trip to Naxos itself took about 5 hours but the time went very quickly. Naxos is a lovely island with beautiful sandy beaches and no large hotel complex. We stayed at Hotel Katarina in the village next to Naxos town - a perfect family hotel near the beach that i recommended highly! After a little more than 2 weeks at Naxos, we felt ready to go home, the boat went to Athens in the morning so at lunch we were in Athens and in the evening we flew back to Copenhagen!

"Greek efficiently on the seas!"
Great service and efficient staff on board my crossing from Athens (port of Piraeus) to Koufonissi. However we did travel business class, well worth the money. The lounge was clean, quiet and the perfect space for the journey. The cabins were OK, although rather small and was a little tricky coming down the ladder from top bunks. The ferry kept to time and it was interesting watching the disembarking and the key side activities when stopping at various islands. Would certainly use blue star again.

I have used Blue Star Ferries for a number of years to travel from Piraeus to Paros and i am really satisfied with the service you get on board - it's premier class! Only thing.... it takes a bit too long! But otherwise perfect and always on time like a Swiss watch! I come from Switzerland by the way.
