Anek Lines Customer Reviews

  • "Superb"

    The ferry was more like a luxurious cruise ship....clean, quiet, comfortable, and no shortage of friendly, helpful and competent crew. Food and eating options were just fantastic as were the catering facilities. Of my many ferry trips, this was easily the best service I have been on.

  • "outbound Ancona-Corfu perfect, nightmare return"

    all good on the outbound Ancona-Corfu, departure on time and clean ship. On the return the departure time was at 10.30 but it was at half past midnight. The ship was full of people sleeping everywhere. Thanks God we had the cabin but we had to leave it 2 hours before the departure. nightmare
