"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.

"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!

"But pretty neat ... "
... Apart from minor shortcomings! The ferry terminal was opened and super signposted, but the opening hours of the switch did not fit the data of Minoan Lines. Vonn 22:00 clock until the end of the check-ins at 04:30 clock the counter should be opened, but he was not. Only from 03:00 clock has been opened, but everything ran smoothly. Access to the ship also signposted and it was even briefed. The ship itself (Cruise Europe) was a bit dated, but was rebuilt in 2009. All very neat, clean and well maintained. OK, the pool was no water and the prices in the gastronomical facilities were a bit overpriced, but the reception was almost always busy (even at night!) And took care of immediately when problems arise. Too bad that only one seat chair hall was opened, it was tight in the night. If one has to sleep on three chairs, it is not enough now time for all. The ship has filed on time, the arrival in Patras was a little late (approx. 45 min.) I have been traveling by motorcycle. Access to the parking deck was only in the application breaks in the ports possible, you must ensure the safety worry so. My bike was properly tied down, so I was very happy here. All in all, recommended!

"Special kudos to the staff at check in! "
Special praise for the service when you check quickly and competently. We were very grateful for the rapid correction of our electronic error with my account that could be corrected generous (despite the season), we had instead "Camping on Board" a recreational vehicle and twice booked deck, which is why we so according to our booking no entitlement to a cabin (and the excellent food) would have had. Thanks again!

The city of Trieste is located in the north east of Italy and lies towards the end of a narrow strip of land between the Adriatic Sea and Slovenia, immediately south and east of Trieste. The city's history has been heavily influenced by its location at the head of the Gulf of Trieste, at the crossroads of Latin, Slavic and German cultures. The city has a number of theatres and has a thriving cultural scene for visitors to enjoy. The theatres in the city include the Opera Teatro Lirico Giuseppe Verdi, Politeama Rossetti, the Slovene Theatre in Trieste, the Teatro La Contrada and the Teatro Miela. A popular attraction in the city is the Castello Miramare which was built between 1856 and 1860 and is located on the waterfront around 8 km from the city. The castle's gardens are open to the public and contain a variety of trees and two ponds, one of which is noted for its swans and the other for its lotus flowers. There is also a Castle annex and a small chapel where a cross made from the remains of the 'Novara' is kept.
The port provides adequate facilities and public conveniences for passengers. The Stazione Marittima passenger terminal has a departures lounge, coffee shop, lavatories, a convenience store and public telephones. Ferry services from the port depart to Pula in Croatia and Igoumenitsa in Greece.
The Greek city of Patras is located around 215 km to the west of the Greek capital, Athens, and is the regional capital of Western Greece in the northern Peloponnese. Visitors to the city should head to Aghiou Nikolaou which is the city's most famous street and is only a short distance to the Old City. This is characterised by cobbled streets lined with lovely neoclassical mansions which act as a reminder of the city's illustrious past. A popular site in the city is its medieval castle that was constructed in the latter part of the 6th century AD on the site of the ancient Acropolis. The castle's walls enclose an area of around 22 sq. m and the castle consists of a triangular external compound that was reinforced with towers and ramparts.
There are several spots around Patras that honours the famous Greek poet Kostis Palamas. His house is the most interesting one as is the house where he was born. When he moved to Athens it became the place where the Serao family (from Italy) lived and where the Italian writer Matilde Serao was born. Today it houses the Kostis Palamas Institution. The most famous statue of him stands at Ypsilá Alónia Square.
