The "Olympic Champion" of ANEK

Home again!
We were travelling with this nice, big ferry, "Olympic Champion", which
started to operate the line Pireas- Heraklion this summer. Built 2000, takes 1850 passengers and lots of cars and trucks of course. The ship belongs to ANEK (Ανώνυμη Ναυτιλιακή Εταιρεία Κρήτης Α.Ε.), which is a Cretan company founded after a big accident 1966 when a ferry sank.

Really nice paintings on the walls...

Two big ferries are leaving from Pireas to Heraklion and vice versa every day. They are leaving at about 9 o'clock at night and are arriving at 05.30.

But the dogs' cages were beneath contempt! Most of them were not even possible to close! Broken with holes here and there, rusty...Ugh, Anek! Get better - safety also for animals, thanks!

ANEK lines F/B "Kriti" (also Igoumenitsa and Patras, as well as other destinations: ANEK)
Minoan lines (also Corfu, Igoumenitsa and Patras)
