Anek Lines Customer Reviews

  • "Easy Work but check your check in "

    Smooth and easy journey from Rhodes to Karpathos. Only feedback is clarification needed on how early you must arrive. Our confirmation email states we needed to be there 120 minutes before departure. However once we arrived at the ferry port, we were only advised 60. We had a 8am departure and arrived way before 6am which after an early morning wake up seemed unnecessary.

  • "Good Experience"

    Only drawback was that DirectFerries could not supply on-line tickets so they had to be collected beforehand from Port which was a little inconvenient. Ferry was 1 hour late in arriving at departure port but no big problem for us. Ship very clean - very good services - a really peasant little cruise on ANEK FB Prevellis.

  • "Thira to Crete"

    I did my booking in advance through Directferries. The service was excellent. The trip itself was good value for money.
