Really enjoyed the voyage to Syros. Bars and restaurants were excellent and the crew too. Shopping facilities were not great, perhaps the shipping line would look into that too. Shall definately return to you.

29 Sep 2014Great ferry crossing with Blue Star
We had a good crossing from Piraeus to Athens, were very impressed with the whole operation - very organised and punctual. We used Blue Star a number of times on this trip and were very happy with them, would definitely recommend.

The crossing from Piraeus to Ermopoli on Syros takes about four hours. There was a prompt departure at 7.30 am and there were no issues or problems during the journey. In August, sitting outside on the rear deck (in economy) is a pleasant experience (you can pay more and sit inside in air-conditioned seating, but why bother). The catering is of the snack variety but perfectly OK and the staff were helpful and polite, as most Greeks are. Obviously this isn't nearly as quick as flying, but it's a lot cheaper and a good holiday experience - and pretty good value for money.
