Hello everybody! I am pleased to let everyone know that our vacation in Crete had a perfect start and a perfect end thanks to Minoan Lines. We crossed the Aegean sea back and forth smoothly, aboard a state of the art ship. Words cannot encompas the feeling aboard mighty Festos Palace. I strongly recommend anyone willing to go to Crete by means of water to use the services of Minoan Lines. Also many thanks to Direct Ferries for providing us the reservation. Happy vacations to everyone!

Some of the on board facilities have been converted to shops, which is a shame. We didn't use the on board catering so cannot comment on it. Otherwise was a great journey. Nice clean cabin and effective shower.

Excellent boat - couldn't even tell it was moving. Lots of room in the double berth size. Washroom ample. Well equipped boat - didn't try the food. Could stay on till 8am after docking. Would recommend. AAAA ++++
