Booking Hotel and Ferries for Greece in SeptWe are about to book our hotels for Mykonos and Santorini,
I have question about booking the ferries though.
We saw the ferry schedules online but were led to book with http://www.danae.gr/
I read somewhere that booking direct with the ferries is an option as well.
Just wondering if there are any problems that some here has encountered in the past as with booking ferries.
Best option for tickets (picking up in airport?), any problems, also any cancellations?
I saw theres additional 12eu for picking up tickets at the airport and or getting it by mail/hotel. the pick up in office wouldnt be an option for for the website as above bec we arrive weekend.
As per booking direct w/ ferry company:
Athens-Mykonos: I saw we can use this http://www.fastferries.com.gr/en/info-generic-terms but I can't find how can we get the tickets. We will be coming from Rafina.
I saw that Blue star has Rafina-Mykonos also for 26Eu but it wasn't listed in http://www.gtp.gr. Just wondering if this is regular route or will they cancel later?
How about picking up tickets for Mykonos-santorini and Santorin-Athens? Can we pick it up in athens before we go to the islands?
How is picking up in the ports? advisable?
Any other information will be helpful. thank you.

1Tickets for September slow ferries from Rafina (close to Athens airport) to Mykonos or from Piraeus to Mykonos or Santorini must not be booked in advance.
As to catmarans and other high speed ferries, yoou may book about 1 month ahead. You can book directly with the company or with a booking agency. You can usually choose between
e-tickets that you have to change against boarding passes at the harbour offices ot at certain travel agencies
boarding passes sent at home (heavy postage taxes)
