Greek Ferries: more passengers allowed on Greek routes

The health protocol for passenger ships has been revised due to the positive development concerning the reduction of Covid-19 cases in Greece.

The maximum number of passengers allowed increases to 60% (from 50%) for ships without cabins and to 65% (from 55%) for ships with cabins.
Also the limit of passengers per cabin has been increased to 2 (from 1), while the corresponding limit of four people is maintained if it is a family.

The decision to ease the Covid-19  restrictions on coastal shipping vessels was made with the consent of the Health Ministry and the General Secretariat for Civil Protection, the Maritime Ministry said.

Maritime Minister Yiannis Plakiotakis said that the safety protocols will continue to be revised, based on epidemiological data.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
