I'll be traveling from Santorini to Athens on a high speed Hellenic Seaways ferry next week, but I just read all of the awful reviews and I'm getting nervous about this part of our trip now. I was thinking it wouldn't take much more time compared to flying (once you consider the checking in and waiting around for the flight) and it was cheaper and might be a little scenic, but the stories about lots of people getting sick, getting separated from your travel companions, luggage being stolen, etc. are making me think we have a nightmare of a day ahead of us!!
Does anyone know if there's an area of the boat where we can go outside to get fresh air if we're not feeling well? I purchased some Dramomine to help with seasickness also. We already have these tickets booked so I guess I'm just looking for someone to calm my nerves, but if it's really that bad maybe we will just cancel our tickets to get back whatever money we can and fly. Any advice is much appreciated!!
