  • "Very comfortable experience "

    We had Business Class tickets on the Blue Star Patmos from Naxos to Piraeus and with the ship very full in High Season, were pleased we had paid the extra. "Up front" is very comfortable with waiting staff who are efficient but not pushy. The lounge-style seating was very comfortable and clean. An enjoyable trip.

  • "Direct ferries... I am disappointed in your service "

    I have no complaints about Blue Star.... what I do want to say is how incredibly frustrating trying to amend our booking before the trip was. We decided to change our seats from 'free seating ECO' to assigned seats for the 5hr 15m journey. I tried to amend my booking on direct ferries and it said the cost was £32 to do this. I wasn't annoyed at the amount so I said yes. Then I received an email within one hour after that saying that the price was now £67 to have this upgrade. Sounded a bit absurd so I rejected the booking amendment charge. On the day of the journey, we went to a Blue star ferry counter to have our tickets printed and I asked about the upgrade. He said it would be possible for seats and that it would be €5pp!!! For the exact same seats!!! I am furious Direct Ferries that you think you can charge customers up to £67 to amend their seats when the ferry company is doing it for only €5pp for the exact same seats. Shame on you, I will not be using again.

Naxos Guide

The Greek island of Naxos is part of the Cyclades group of islands that lie in the Aegean Sea. Naxos City, or Chora, is the island's largest town and capital and is built amphitheatrically on the island's west coast. It is also home to one of the biggest ports in the Aegean Sea. The town is popular with tourists and as a result there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for them. The small island of Palatia, which extends from the mainland of Naxos, is the town's emblem. Located on the small island is Portara, which is a monument resembling a door standing alone, without any walls attached to either side. A visit to Portara is advisable, especially after your swim, whilst the sun is setting.

The island is also well known for its food and for producing the famous Naxian potatoes, wine, Kitron liquor productions and the popular cheese called Graviera. There are many restaurants located throughout the island serving local produce to the many tourists who visit.

From the island's port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.

Piraeus Guide

The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.

Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
