12 Oct 2017Short and comfortable travel
Everything was perfect except, The air condition is set to very cold. You need a blanket, while outside temperature is 38 degrees. I prefer, coffee in ceramic instead of paper cups. Thanks

17 Dec 2014Poorly organised, but trip itself okay
Booking included a car, but when I decided I wouldn't bring it I couldn't get my money for the car back, even weeks beforehand. Boat is okay, everybody is sleeping on the chairs and ground (early departure). In Kos the directions aren't clear: You shouldn't wait in the departure hall but outside, in the harbour. And you need to switch your confirmation email to tickets (and pay extra for that) outside. But noone tells you these things; also no announcements.

15 Oct 2014Cost of trip.
Booking on line was 25euros per person one way. When I went to Blue Star office in the harbour of Kos, I found out that I needed to have boarding passes printed, another 1euro per person one way.

09 May 2014Late and slow
The ferry arrived 1h50 late to Kos (we were ready to take our tickets from the office at 7.30, the ferry was supposed to arrive at 8.00am, the ticket office opened at 9.15am and the ferry arrived at 9.50am) and nobody informed us of anything, so the departure of the boat was more than 2h late PLUS it took 1h longer than the advertised to arrive in Rhodes.

07 Aug 2013Delayed and no one knew what was happening
Getting up at 5am to leave our resort to then be told by our hotel staff that the ferry time had been changed was not a good wake up call. Met other families at the ferry port who had been there since 6am! No one was at the desk until 9:45 and it was very difficult to get any information as to when the ferry would arrive.. first it was two hours delayed, then three, then four. Got to our destination 4.5 hours later than I thought we would - just not an acceptable service. I understand there was some wind, but its august and the ferry is massive so shouldn't be affected. Plus customers should definitely be informed. overall terrible service and did not enjoy this experience one bit.
