"Great service, included accommodating our change of date request"
Thank you Minoan Lines, we really appreciated you accommodating our change of date request after we made a mistake. The ferry was clean and well run with really efficient staff, the only issue was that some of the seating allocations meant that couples weren't sat together but the staff on the ship were great and managed it so people weren't separated. Thank you

I was pretty apprehensive doing this ferry crossing as I get motion sickness & I know the Cyclades are known for the Meltemi winds in August. I must say though that I didn’t feel at all sick, the boarding was easy & the seats were big leather chairs. Totally enjoyed the 45 min trip from Mykonos to Paros.

"Really nice trip! "
The trip was grear, it was my first travel by ferry and I really enjoy it, very nice and comfortable. Only thing I would change would be an issue with departure time. We took the ferry from Heraklion terminal to Thira. Ship departure was scheduled at 9.40, but when we bought our tickets it was adviced to be 2 hours earlier from departure time. When we arrive, we couldn't board until 1 hour before departure, so we had to wait in the port terminal.

One of the worst experiences I've ever had in my entire life. The air-condition in the closed areas was unbelievably on low temperature. My sensor on my I phone gave me 13 Celsius drafting on the floor from the roof and the static temperature of the area was 17 Celsius. This make me feel that the cold was drilling my flesh and my bones all the night. The service of course of the crew was unbelievable on good quality.
