"Fantastic way to get to Crete"
We decided to book a luxury cabin as it wasn't any more expensive than flying from Athens in economy. What a treat. It was large and luxurious. Very comfortable bed, seating area and an ensuite bathroom. We ate in the restaurant, had a very good meal, which was well priced. A nightcap to round it off and we retired to our cabin. We slept right through the journey to Crete. Woke just as we were arriving. Had a shower and some breakfast and disembarked clean and well rested for a busy day of travelling.

"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.

"Perfect boat trip during you holiday"
We, me and my boyfriend, have traveled around whole Greece. We have started in Crete. We have not felt like flying all the time, and as a result, we have decided to travel to Athens by this ferry. It took nearly whole day, however, we are from inland, so it was very nice trip. I can only recommend this ferry, nothing have gone wrong and ferry has been really beautiful.

"Reasonable vessel, noisy cabin"
We went from Heraklion to Athens, this time on the Knossos Palace. The cabin was reasonable but had a faint odour of diesel and was much noisier than the one we had on her sister-ship Festos Palace.

"Minoan Lines, Ship Knossos Palace"
I had a pleasant trip on the Pireaus-Crete crossing and return. The only flaw is that there was no doctor on board. I've asked because my son injured his foot in the sea and i was looking for assistant.
