Blue Star changes

Blue Star were due to do one of their regular ship-swaps this week, on Tuesday. The Blue Star Paros has been serving Symi since late June, but was due to change places in Piraeus with the Blue Star Patmos. This has been postponed and the Blue Star Paros will now continue until further notice.

For those who have booked in advance and actually collected the tickets (not just having an on-line booking confirmation) you should visit a Blue Star agent and exchange them for new tickets at no charge. If you have an on-line booking confirmation it doesn’t matter as you will be given the right tickets when you show up at the ticket office before travelling. The reason for this is that Greek law requires each passenger to be issued with a ticket stating the name of the ferry they will be travelling on.
