    Ferry
    • Excellent staff attitude and outstanding service. We only used the bar and self service restaurant, which provided very varied choice, very helpful staff and outstanding value for money. Also on boardind and leaving, the staff behaved in the, old fashioned way, wellcoming and helping passengers with the baggage etc. FANTASTIC!!!!

    Venice to Crete: stage 2
    • This ferry, it's facilities and services was far better than our first stage (Venice to Patras). The accommodation was great, with a large room, two real (although single) beds, fridge stocked with complimentary water & coke and a perfectly adequate shower room. Departure and arrival pretty much on time and ports easily accessible (bus 420 from across the road at Athens bus station - use rusty footbridge). Not to Anek Lines: on this ferry there was a safety announcement providing information on life jackets and the emergency signal (ships horn) there was no such announcement on the ferry from Venice to Patras.
