I am traveling through ATHENS - NAXOS - FOLEGANDROS - SANTORINI from July 7th, 2013 - July 17th. I am taking ferries throughout and am looking to book now - primarily BlueStar since it is reliable and cheaper.
I am unfamiliar with ECONOMY CLASS Seating, versus other classes. (i.e. business, airtype seat, first class). Please shed some light on the benefits of the higher classes - I am a seasoned traveler and don't mind something too uncomfortable.
Athens to Naxos is 5 hours. Will economy be fine? I would like to be able to go on the topdeck for fresh air - is that available for all tickets for BLUE STAR?
Naxos to Folegandros is 4 hours. I assume Economy will be fine.
Folegandros to Santorini is 1 hour.
Santorini to Athens can be 5 hours or 8 hours. Do you recommend I do SEA JET fast ferry? Much higher price but looks like 3 hours less travel time. I have been reading the forums and know BlueStar is safer as far as reliability.. Should I just book that last ferry once I get to Santorini? My flight back to the USA is the following day - so I have one final night in Athens before my international flight.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!! Couldn't find a forum on this question!
