"A very pleasant crossing. Staff were friendly and helpful"
We enjoyed the journey with no problems. The staff were pleasant. The food was adequate but a little expensive. We were required to leave our cabin rather prematurely we thought and then had a long wait for disembarkation.

"Very Enjoyable Crossing"
The ferry was very big, plush and looked more like a cruise ship than ferry crossing. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a meal in the self service buffet as we set sail. Our cabin was spacious and comfortable. I would recommend the Knossos Palace to fellow travellers and would use it myself again.

We booked a twin cabin with sea view which was really spacious and comfortable. The whole ship was smart and clean and it never felt busy - no queues at the self-service and plenty of tables in the bars and restaurants. All in all a very enjoyable experience and we arrived in Greece feeling refreshed for our onward journey.
