  • "Very efficient service"

    My wife and I were very impressed with the service provided by Blue Star Ferries on our recent trip between Lesbos and Chios. The ferry left on time - maybe even a couple of minutes early - and everything onboard was very comfortable.

  • "Blue Star overnight ferry from Chios to Piraeus "

    Very large and well managed ferry. Warm and comfortable with lots of different areas to sit in, including a couple of cinema areas. We (x 4) booked a cabin which was very clean and surprisingly roomy. Beds very comfortable - we all slept well. One of my companions had a shower and was very happy with it. We did not buy food or drink so cannot comment; and did not have much contact with staff although those we did were patient (it was very busy) and competent. Ship arrived in Pireaus early; we were on the far side of the harbour but caught the free bus transfer round to the town side of the harbour; patisserie cafe between the harbour and the railway station was open very early. All in all an easy and very comfortable crossing.

  • "Great trip"

    The ship was great, we had not booked a berth but there was plenty of room and comfortable chairs to sleep in. The staff were really helpful and the public areas and toilets were very clean. I would use again.

  • "Absolutely gorgeous trip!!"

    Travelled from Mytilene to Piraeus on this fantastic ferry! Spotless, luxurious with amazingly friendly and helpful staff.. great restaurant and a cruise ship atmosphere. Seriously.. the trip with cabin, cost about 40% less than an air ticket and gave us the time to ease slowly into the shock of Athens. One of the best sea trips ever.

  • "On the way to Patmos"

    My trip with Blue Star Ferries from Piraeus to Kos and then later from Kos to Piraeus went very well. The boat departed and arrived in time in both directions. The staff onboard was very friendly and helpful and the boat was well equipped, clean, neat and modern. The only thing that annoyed me was that it was so expensive to buy a private cabin. The trip overall could've been cheaper since I didn't travel during the high season. The airplane chairs were good though, you could get some rest. What was most unfortunate for me was that there were so few ferries between Piraeus and Patmos (that was my end destination) during low season, so I had to travel via Kos and then wait for the catamaran that took me between Kos and Patmos. On the other hand I got a nice trip between the islands!

  • "wrong payment"

    When you are going to get the tickets in the Blue star offices at the port, they charged one euro for the issue of the tickets, this is something that is not indicated anywhere when you make the purchase and at the moment of boarding is not well indicated the ferry that you have to board, only when you are inside the ferry someone check the tickets and told you if you are in the right ferry or not.
