Unfortunately, the lack of competition leaves no room for improvement. Inadequate English by the crew, dirty ship areas, broken seats that you pay extra, airconditioning that should work, constant delays in their schedule. Sadly, the quality of service by Blue Star company is very low.

These are slow compared to the catamarans but nice to do once or twice for the experience and very stable. It seems you need a cabin to be able to keep your bags with you. It has 2 bunk beds and a bathroom.

We traveled from Santorini to Athens on Blue Star Delos. The trip was about 8 hours with two stops. We paid for a cabin and it didn’t disappoint. The common areas are clean. The business class lounge was also comfortable. Outside spaces provided an opportunity...More

It’s 2018 and their online booking site didn’t render at all on iPad4 or iPhone8. All over the place! Anyway I thought I’d muddled through but ended up booking 10am not 10pm lux cabin. So quite a hit. No sympathy at all at check-in, customer...More
