Red Star Ferries specialises in trans-national crossings from the port town of Brindisi in southern Italy to Vlora and Saranda in Albania, and a few Greek islands off the west coast, in the Ionian Sea.
Operating the shortest available route between Italy and Albania, from Brindisi to Vlora, Red Star Ferries can take you between the two nations in as little as four and a half hours aboard their flagship, Red Star 1. The company’s timetable also includes twice-weekly crossings from Italy to the Albanian town of Saranda, the unofficial capital of the Albanian Riviera, and the stunning Ionian archipelago of north-western Greece, including the islands Paxos, Kefalonia and Zakynthos, on a seasonal basis.
The Red Star Ferries fleet consists of large, well-equipped vessels, offering a range of cabins including luxury accommodation with sea views. Given their size, the ships have plenty of on-board entertainment in the form of cafes, bars, restaurants and lounge areas affording superb Mediterranean views.
