Indeed, sail times can vary from anywhere between 20 minutes (Sami to Ithaka), to 1 hour (Kyllini to Zakynthos), to 8 hours (Brindisi to Corfu), to 26 hours and 30 minutes (Venice to Corfu). Due to this wide range in sail times, we recommend checking before you travel to see how long your route is estimated to take.

Ionian Islands reviews

  • "A very pleasant crossing. Staff were friendly and helpful"

    We enjoyed the journey with no problems. The staff were pleasant. The food was adequate but a little expensive. We were required to leave our cabin rather prematurely we thought and then had a long wait for disembarkation.

  • "Very Enjoyable Crossing"

    The ferry was very big, plush and looked more like a cruise ship than ferry crossing. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a meal in the self service buffet as we set sail. Our cabin was spacious and comfortable. I would recommend the Knossos Palace to fellow travellers and would use it myself again.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyable"

    We booked a twin cabin with sea view which was really spacious and comfortable. The whole ship was smart and clean and it never felt busy - no queues at the self-service and plenty of tables in the bars and restaurants. All in all a very enjoyable experience and we arrived in Greece feeling refreshed for our onward journey.
