The Express Santorini was our favourite Greek ferry before the arrival of the Blue Star ferries. We could recognise it clearly from afar because of the distinct shape of its funnel.
We are currently in the Azores and three days ago we arrived at Praia da Vitoria on the island of Terceira. We headed down to the beach and to our amazement we saw the Express Santorini docked there. It was still decked out in Hellenic Seaways livery but on the hull is written Hellenic Seaways operated by Atlantico Line. Seemingly she is on a regular summer charter in the Azores along with another Hellenic Seaways boat , Hellenic Wind.
We did not have a camera with us and she has now gone off round the islands just as she did in Greece
