"Trieste Patra with Sofoklis Venizelos"
The trip was overall 1 hour late, in Igoumenista may be two hours late but caught up one hour to Patra. NO wifi, no internet stations to rent, but the ship was relatively empty and clear. TV with Greek and Italian stations available, archades room (permenantely empty). I did not use a cabin, cannot evaluate their services there.

"did what it said on the tin"
I had a passage only ticket, which meant kipping where I could and hoping that my belongings stayed safe. There was no information on the ticket or emails explaining what to expect; most crucially it would have been helpful to be directed to the deck where the sleeping chairs were rather than just dismissed at the reception desk. I also think ferries like this ought to have lockers for valuables/luggage belonging to passage only customers. There's plenty of wasted space on these vessels in the form of multiple lounges and expansive foyers; converting just a small zone to secure storage lockers would be inexpensive and would make the world of difference to travellers not having to lug their belongings round the whole time they're on the ship.

Our trip on board the Cruise Europa and the Cruise Olympia was very pleasant. The cabin was neat and clean and the facilities on board were good. Everything was clear and the ship was punctual. We are very satisfied!

"A journey with two dogs"
The area in which the pets are transported is not adapted. The kennel is run-down and it's unacceptable that there is nowhere you can bring the dogs to do their business.

The confort is decent. However, the price of the coffee is not: 3€ I was controlled by an employee who told me that I was not in the economy area… I had a ticket for the ABS class (not economy) The announcement are sometimes difficult to hear.

No cash machine or Bursar on board, only the restaurants have card machines, not the bar! so make sure you bring cash.

"A good prestation"
The loading and the unloading of the vehicles were easy. We were quicly welcomed and given the keys to our cabins. The facilities on board and the lounges are pleasant. There are two possibilities to eat: a self service restaurant and a table service restaurant (the food was similar). You can enjoy the deck from a table and an outdoor bar. A good service overall

"customer friendliness "
Very long wait at reception, for the tickets to the cabin respect! The organization at the reception we experienced as a disaster. Finally get the tickets - were nowhere to employees who could show us the direction to the cabin. After a long time we have found the cabin, but the room card did not work - the whole thing started to wait at the reception from the front. On deck it was very dirty, the dirt on the floor, overcrowded rubbish bin etc. - just awful. For 10 years, we take minoan and have always been satisfied. The trip this year was was the exact opposite - we could hardly believe it.

"Dogs on boat "
It would be necessary to create a separate dog area. I had with a dog, but it's the other guests hardly reasonable that the dogs pee everywhere there!

"Some seats please"
A very nice company, but not enough seats on the deck… not to mention the deck chairs which were chained up and weren't there at all during the inbound crossing. A pleasant restaurant and a clean cabin. A delay of 2 hours for the outbound journey.

"In need of improvement"
The Zeus Palace (outbound) wasn't very confortable. We were shaken up during the majority of the night. It was not because of the sea, which was very quiet. The boat was very old and there was almost no infrastructure to keep the passengers entertained. In need of improvement.

"only 24 hours "
First impression: quite OK, cabin large enough and clean, the price of the crossing is okay. first minus point: the first beer on board at the bar: bad poured and 4, - € for 0.4 l too expensive. Similarly, some high-priced and in terms of quality not quite right, the self-service restaurant. For a cappuccino 4, - Euro is not cheap. second and much heavier drawback: for guests with dogs was either not a dog toilet available, or guests let their dogs pee and shit everywhere without being charged from the staff, including right beside the pool and on the paths used by all passengers.

"Igoumenitsa - Ancona "
No Internet, only for a fee! 18 hour ride, possibly of advantage if there were internet! Food ok, not too overpriced! 1-class-seats great, were okay. that the light on the deck has to be switched on is a pitty. On the whole, a good alternative to ex Yugoslavia! In some places you could finf dog-excrements, not very appetizing!

"our crossing Ancona/Igoumenitsa"
We were excited at the idea of enjoying both our mobile home and the fresh air of the sea going towards the upper deck with our campervan. Unfortunately, we were quickly disappointed. We were not allowed to stay aboard the campervan and the deck access was locked. We thought that we'll surely be able to find a cabin at an attractive price, as there aren't many people. "140 euro" was the cheapest. We'll sleep on the floor, in the dust, with the noise. We have booked and paid a long time ago though. Plus we met other people with campervans who paid less and were offered a cabin.

"Motorbike trip to Zakynthos"
We can't recommend the Ancona to Patras crossing enough - we travelled at the end of August to early September. The Ferry arrived and left on time - the bikes were secured appropriately - the facilities were excellent, only wish I hadn't left my trunks on the bike so I could have used the pool!
