I am planning on taking a ferry from Santorini to Naxos and Naxos to Athens in September of 2006. Everyone (including travel agents) keeps telling me that the schedule has not come out yet; however when I go to www.bluestarferries.gr and type in my dates a schedule does appear and will allow me to purchase tickets. Is this not the correct schedule or are they possibly ahead of schedule this year?
I was also trying to figure out the best types of accommodations on the Blue Star Ferries. It looks as if the ships are similar to smaller cruise ships. If my assumption is correct, are you free to move around the ferry as you please? If so, what type of accommodations would be best for a couple that, weather permitting, would like to be on the outside for the majority of the ride? What is the difference between economy, aircraft seating and business class?
Thank you in advance for your information. Please believe me that I did try and locate this on my own. I do appreciate all of your expertise!!
