"Blue Star – big comfortable, modern, ferries"
These are huge ferries. It is easy to get a bit lost. Take special note of where you store your baggage. It is very easy to be confused between decks. As far as ferries go, this is bigger and better than most. It is a serious ship. I would prefer to be on this if the sea came up. It is nicely appointed inside – the boat is only a few years old. I was in Business Class. The area needs to be spruced up a bit on the cleanliness side to cater for Business Class and the catering people need a lesson in being customer focused eg. I went to the bar to buy something and the woman serving said I could not order over the counter, that I had to wait for a waiter to serve me. Silly. A quick sale over the counter is easy money. Having to exchange my DirectFerries ticket for a Blue Star Ferry ticket at a ticket office for boarding was a bit annoying and easy for novices to be ignorant of. I guess it is like a physical check-in at an airport though.

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.

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.
Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.
Naxos is a Greek island that lies in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group of islands. The island has a rich and interesting history and has been ruled by a number of different civilisations during its history, including the Byzantine, Frankish and Venetians, all of which have left their mark on the island. The island has a flourishing agricultural economy thanks to its fertile terrain and visitors will see both olives and grapes being grown.
Popular attractions on the island, aside from its lovely beaches, tend to focus around Hora and include the Venetian Castle. Also popular with visitors are the island's visitors with one of the largest being Filoti which is situated next to Mount Zeus and Apiranthos which is next to Mount Fanari. Another popular way to spend time on the island is to take to one of the many trails on the island and to go hiking into the mountains.
The island's port is also located in Chora. From the port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.
