Rhodes Thira Ferry reviews

  • "Very impressed"

    I was very impressed with the service. Punctual, clean, efficient and friendly. I have not used Greek ferries before but will not hesitate to go Greek island-hopping by ferry again... Many thanks.

  • "OK but ..."

    We got there early and were told to park under the ramp. As we sat down to eat we were called down to move the car. Given the deck was almost empty this seemed ridiculous. The food was lukewarm and trays of food were sitting on top of other ones. Felt sorry for the catering staff because you could not even see what they had on offer. We found the one spot we could sit and not hear a TV. Crew member came and turned them all on in the air lounge and there was no-one there! I asked him to turn them off but he refused. No-one watches TV so why not have some quiet areas? Loos kept very clean.
