"Like the good old days"
A lot has happened with ferries in Greece since I visited in the nineties. Now, fast and sleek jet ferries have taken a lot of the market. They'll get you there, but you will be more or less locked to your seat for the entire voyage. The Blue Star line operates slower, but comfortable ferries. You can stroll three decks or choose to sit inside for the duration. So, if you prefer ferries like back in the day - only with better services - and don't care if the trip takes longer, the Blue Star is a good choice.

"Pleasant trip from Naxos"
Ship provided relaxing no hassles trip from Naxos to Piraeus. The boarding and disembarkation processes were efficient and the ship docked very close to the Metro allowing easy access to Central Athens.

"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.

Very good crossing with Hellenic who are for me the best company in Greece. We booked two months before on line and they warned us a month before departure time had changed so very happy with the experience in general.

The Greek island of Naxos is part of the Cyclades group of islands that lie in the Aegean Sea. Naxos City, or Chora, is the island's largest town and capital and is built amphitheatrically on the island's west coast. It is also home to one of the biggest ports in the Aegean Sea. The town is popular with tourists and as a result there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for them. The small island of Palatia, which extends from the mainland of Naxos, is the town's emblem. Located on the small island is Portara, which is a monument resembling a door standing alone, without any walls attached to either side. A visit to Portara is advisable, especially after your swim, whilst the sun is setting.
The island is also well known for its food and for producing the famous Naxian potatoes, wine, Kitron liquor productions and the popular cheese called Graviera. There are many restaurants located throughout the island serving local produce to the many tourists who visit.
From the island's port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.
The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.
Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve has a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
