Starting from March 1st, after a short transition period, the new timetable of Grimaldi Minoan Lines connections from Ancona to Greece will come into force, offering all year round daily departures to Igoumenitsa and 6 times a week to Patras for a total of 13 weekly departures!
To cover the new operations, 4 vessels will be used to replace - after more than 10 years of service - the Cruise Europa and the Cruise Olympia transferred to the Tyrrhenian Sea on the Livorno-Olbia line. This operation will allow a considerable increase in cargo both in terms of trucks and passengers carried.
The 2 ships Corfu and Florencia will be dedicated to the Ancona - Igoumenitsa line, leaving every day in the evening and arriving in Greece in the afternoon. Moreover, from 14/06 to 12/09 there will be 2 weekly calls to and from the port of Corfu.
The two cruise ferries Europa Palace (ex Cruise Olbia) and Zeus Palace (which will take over from Cruise Bonaria at the end of March) will instead connect - without intermediate stops - the ports of Ancona and Patras with departures in the afternoon.
We would like to remind you that Grimaldi Minoan Lines tickets on the Ancona - Greece line can be booked through the online booking system or by contacting the booking center at +39 071 201708.
