Zante Ferries, formerly known as Cyclades Ferries, operates frequent crossings from the Greek cities of Killini and Piraeus to the Cyclades and Ionian Islands, the most popular archipelagos in Greece.
Having sailed the Aegean from Piraeus Harbour for many years, Zante Ferries has become one of the biggest ferry companies in Greece, carrying thousands of passengers every year.
Their fleet consists of three large ships called Dionysios Solomos, Andreas Kalvos and Adamantios Korais, offering a wide range of onboard services. They boast modern, stylish cabins ranging from deluxe standard to economy, and you can enjoy a selection of delicious light meals, snacks and refreshments in the cafes and restaurants.
Given the size of the vessels, they can hold a great number of vehicles, too, ranging from large to small cars and motorcycles. Passengers are also allowed to travel with their pets at no extra charge, with plenty of kennels available on board. Some smaller pets may be taken to the open deck, however, all owners must carry a valid EU Pet Passport.

"Enjoyable ferry trip"
A very relaxed way to travel between islands. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor seats, decent though limited food and drink, and the views are lovely...

"Great ride, poor communication"
It was a great ride and the ferry is very impressive. I would definitely recommend taking this ferry. Our ticket indicated that we had to be at the port 2 hours in advance. For us that meant being at the port at 5am to depart 7am. I thought that this waiting time might be excessive and therefore emailed direct ferries in order to ask whether we can be at the port later. The response I received was that we absolutely had to be there at 5 am. When we got there at 5am the ticket office was still closed. The ticket office only opened at 6:15. Therefore I don't understand by we had to be there at 5am. We also seem to be the only passengers that was there 2 hours in advance.

An excellent service and everything you'd expect. Comfortable, with plenty of room to wander about and sit on deck to enjoy the sunshine. I far prefer this type of ferry to those high-speed ones where you're cooped-up like a chicken, insulated from your surroundings. OK, the trip might take a little longer but, if you're on holiday, what's the hurry?
