Select your accommodation

Conventional Ferries from Athens to Santorini:
  • Restaurants, cafes, bars, WCs, decks are available for any class of accommodation.
  • Economy deck seats are spread all over the ship and you can seat wherever you want – the ones inside the ship, near the bar or cafeteria, are better since they are more comfortable to sit, like armchairs. The ones outside are like swimming pool plastic chairs and tables – not comfortable for long trips, but fun to stay during the day, watching the beautiful blue sea and having a drink. The economy class stores the luggage in racks spread all over the ship, and sometimes not close to the place where you are sitting.
  • Air seats are numbered seats so each passenger is assigned a specific seat. They are large and comfortable and if you intend to take a nap, that’s good enough. The seats are in separate private rooms on the ship. The numbers refer to the location of these “rooms” and that doesn’t make any difference. They are all the same. You enter through a private door to the lounge and at the back, you have racks to store your luggage. It’s like a first class wagon on a train.
  • Business class or/and VIP is a separate section with larger seats with the most comfortable seating. Both Business and VIP have their own bars and are restricted to passengers holding tickets for those sections.
