    • On the whole my journey was fine, uneventful which is good. My only upset was my husband and I were seated rows apart but we're told we were to sit in the seats allocated, fortunately the 2 seats beside me were empty so my husband was able to join me one we set sail, apart from that all was well.

    Poor Communication
    • I was on the Ancona to Patras ferry, but I cannot review that trip, Overall I had a pleasant journey, however having no WIFI for 24 was a serious hassle for me and my business operation.

    Discount on a cabin by second crossing
    • The crossing went well, friendly staff and good food. However, when checking in at Minoan Lines we requested a cabin which we had forgotten when booking the crossing. The lady at the desk indicated that this was possible for an amount of € 110, - per person for a 2 person cabin. On the Grimaldi Lines (€ 70,- per cabin), however, there was a leaflet from Grimaldi and Minoan Lines stating that on a 2nd crossing there is a discount on the cabin of 30 percentage. The lady at the desk was not too friendly (very rude!) That this only applies to crossings within Italy and not for the crossing to Greece. This can not be found in the brochure, but the lady kept her point of view that it was a cabin for € 220, -. The result was that we were forced to spend the night on a very cold ferry, not only in the hall with the chairs but also in the lounge and also in the dining room.

    Appalling all round
    • Arrived at Ancona to find ferry was 4.5 hours late - claimed in response to my email complaint that a text was sent but never received it. Delay was due to it taking that long to load trucks - surely it is not a surprise that trucks will be using the route. I know from someone else who was complaining to the Receptionist onboard that the same thing happened last year. Minoan need to build longer into their schedules so it is not the customer who is inconvenienced. I do not believe Minoan understand the implications of their awful service - our ferry was so late that 2 French students had to get a lift with us as they had missed the last bus to Athens. The whole experience was extremely disappointing. Minoan have offered 25 per cent off a future booking in response to my complaint but not sure I want to enjoy its 'service' again!
