We are a family of 5 flying out to Athens on the 15th of August where we will spend 2 nights then to Santorini (3 nights) and finally Mykonos (1 night). My mum's quite prone to seasickness and I've been reading horror stories about Seajet2 ferries (cramp, bumpy etc). Would the highspeed6 be the next best choice or BlueStar Delos? I've heard more good comments about the bluestar compared to highspeed6 but 7hrs sounds like an awfully long time to be on a ferry..what I want to know is the 3 hours difference worth it? What's the comfort factor like highspeed6 vs bluestar? Thing is if we arrive at Santorini at 11ish, we could have a nice sit down restaurant meal whereas taking the bluestar would mean having lunch on board. :S not really sure which to book.
Also, any recommended taxi companies in Athens and Santorini as I haven't booked any airport transfers yet? It's a bit awkward with us being 5 ppl - most taxis take up to a max of 4. My sister's tiny so we could technically squeeze but I'm not sure how strict they are over there. Would it be easier (and cheaper) to take the metro from the airport in Athens?
Thanks in advance!
