    • location similar to Kamari promenade elsewhere?

      Santorini Island Nov 16, 2014 at 4:06 AM

      In the last summer I spent a few days in the town of Kamari. I liked the pedestrian promenade along the beach with many clubs, restaurants and small hotels directly on it. It was very pleasant to have a drink in our hotel’s pool-bar facing the sea and the nice crowd walking on the promenade.
      I’m wondering if a location like this exsists in any other Greek island! Do you know any?

      Luggage in Bluestar ferry to Santorini

      Greece Nov 17, 2014 at 8:57 AM

      HI everyone, my question is:
      If I take the bluestar ferry from Pireaus to Santorini in economy class, will I be able to store my luggage somewhere, or do I have to keep it next to me all the time (we are 2 adults, 1 child, carrying 3 big suitcases)
      How about in a cabin? If I take a cabin I suppose I can leave it in the cabin and take a walk around the decks and then go back to the cabin and sleep for a while. Are cabin passengers allowed in the decks and/or business lounge?

      Where can I pickup bluestar ferry tickets bought online.

      Greece Nov 8, 2014 at 11:30 AM

      HI everyone,

      I am taking a ferry from Piraeus to Santorini on April 4 2015. I understand this can be a very busy date since its easter sunday, so I don´t want to risk it and prefer to buy my ferry tickets in advance.
      I could use your recommendations on wether I should buy them directly from the bluestar website and pickup at one of their "central agencies" like:
      26, Akti Possidonos, 18531 Piraeus
      Τel.: +30-210-4119171, 4119175, Fax: +30-210-4137144

      Or is it better to book through another website that delivers the tickets at the airport/hotel?

      Which option is more reliable?
