Golden Star Ferries reviews

Golden Star Ferries is rated 2.8 stars based on 30 users reviews.
  • Excellent ferry service

    I will recommend to book Greece internal ferry with this company. Their service are reliable and Excellent.

  • Golden Star Ferries

    Highly impressed by both voyages with Golden Star Ferries i.e. Super Ferry 2 from Rafina to Paros and then Super Runner from Naxos to Rafina. 1) Boarding, directions and luggage storage excellent; 2) Maintenance and cleanliness of vessels excellent; 3) Allocation of seating (Super Runner) and travel comfort excellent; 4) Vessel organisation and safety systems excellent; 5) Scheduling of service excellent.

  • A bit anarchic

    [Translated from French]
    The trip went well despite the delay; In Tinos, however, the boat filled up and people took up any place and there were several altercations between people without much follow-up by the staff. The toilets were dirty and there was only one of them for women. On arrival, it was the hustle and no one controlled the people to tell them where to go for the exit.

  • Bad and Nauseating

    Seemed very disorganized. It was hours late. We almost missed our shuttle back to the hotel. It was supposed to be an express and it was not. And it was so nauseating and limited seating only towards the back of the ship. Was not a smooth ride and over an hr late to the destination.

  • Comfrot Depends on vessel

    My trip was from Crete, Heraklio > Santorini (Thira) and back with company: Golden Star Ferries / Vessel: Superferry. Way to Santorini was okay, no dalays, comfort vessel, very kind staff, TV and socket for phone change if you need it. On the way back there was 15 minutes delay and it was very cold at the boat. I really tried to find more or less warm place, but it was very cold due to very strong air conditioning equipment.

  • Too cold

    [Translated from French]
    Air conditioning too strong, we were refrigerated.
    Number of seats not respected.

  • Late

    [Translated from French]
    Delay of 2.5h. Arrival in Athens at 2 o'clock in the morning.

  • Deplorable

    [Translated from French]
    Very good until the payment but then the disaster! Arrival in Athens, no ferry planned while I receive a few minutes before a text message to invite me to enjoy my trip!
    Required to take taxis for another port, another boat with extra charges !!!
    Thank you for proposing me a solution for compensation as soon as possible !!!!
