Athens reviews

  • "Blue Star Ferries"

    As with all ferries in the Greek Islands it's an organised scramble getting on however it is fairly easy and straightforward. There is a space to put your cases but this is a little chaotic with everyone looking for a spot. Once inside Delis felt more like a cruise ship than any of the others I travelled with. Great facilities and food options, clean toilets and friendly staff. I travelled in Business Class, which had comfier seats, and was a little quieter. Lovely waiter service and decent food options. Food is not included in your ticket. Disembarking was hot standing in line but again quick and easy. Overall travelling on Delos was a good experience.
