"Always on time"
Great part of the holiday! Surprisingly always on time (spot on time!) Spotlessly clean. We sat out on the deck at the back and we even saw Dolphins!!!!

Great smooth trip via Alonysos, perfect end to our journey and on the return one of the staff members found my wifes sunglasses. Office staff in the booking office on Skopelos and Skiathos were very helpful and could speak excellent English. Will use next year for sure!

"Glorious sunset cruise"
The ship is lovely, it was such a fantastic day though that I can't comment on the facilities I spent the whole evening sitting out on the open deck, wind in my hair and having a wonderful time admiring the beauty of the route. My one tip for users would be that your e-mail is not your ticket - you have to exchange it at the office which is in a shop on the street opposite the port. This is not obvious, if like us you arrive on foot from the bus station side of Volos. Therefore having got on board and up the stairs I had to go back and exchange the e-mail for tickets - luckily we arrived with plenty of time so it was not an issue for us.

"All easy and as expected"
As the title says, book online was easy and fast as I expect with direct ferries. You just need to think about to check in on time and then you're off! On the ferry everyone was courteous and friendly, and ship was fine too. The trip was good. Thanks, Carlo.
