Conventional car ferries

These vessels can be divided into two categories: the old ones and the modern ones.

The main differences between them are

They are usually very big vessels, which also carry vehicles. Their advantages compared to the High Speed vessels, like the catamarans, are that they are more seaworthy, offer more “relaxed” accommodation and cabins and the passengers have the possibility to sit outside and enjoy their cruise around the Greek islands.

Catamarans & Hydrofoils

These vessels are smaller and much faster than conventional ones. Only a few of them can carry vehicles. Their main advantage is that they go twice as fast.
Passengers are usually not allowed to sit outside even though there is some space on some of them. The accommodation inside is a little like a very wide airplane. The better the class, the wider the seat. There are no cabins.
Smoking is not allowed in any inside area of any ship.

Ferry connections to & from Mykonos

Note: Not all above connections operate throughout the year.
