    • First time on a ferry from one Greek island to another. Pleased we booked online a couple of weeks before travelling. Would recommend- a great journey. Staff on ferry, and in office at Rhodes port office, so helpful and polite.

    Following on map may be useful
    • The journey was very interesting and great overall. The TV broadcast providing information about the islands of the Aegea was also great. However, a map and the track of the journey on the screen may be beneficial for the tourists who wonder what part of which island they are observing.
