Blue Star Ferries is pleased to announce the completion of five years of
continuous and successful presence with its fast, modern car-passenger ferry
BLUE STAR PAROS on the Piraeus-Eastern Cyclades route.



The deployment of BLUE STAR PAROS introduced high quality services, contributed
to the growth of the route in terms of traffic as well as inbound tourism at
highly competitive times for the tourism and leisure industries and has
continued to do so throughout its five-year presence on the route.



BLUE STAR PAROS commenced its service on the Piraeus-Eastern Cyclades route on
12th May, 2002, inaugurating a new era of sea travel to the Cyclades by
substantially reducing the journey time required and upgrading the quality of on
board services offered.



Blue Star Ferries performs daily departures to Cyclades, with F/B's BLUE STAR
ITHAKI, BLUE STAR PAROS and BLUE STAR NAXOS.



As from March 2007 and for the next three years, Blue Star Ferries will serve
the islands Heraklia-Schinoussa-Koufonissi-Donoussa-Amorgos and Astypalaia, as
per public service obligation contract awarded by the Ministry of Merchantile
Marine and the Ministry for the Aegean & Island Policy.



In its five years on the route, BLUE STAR PAROS has charted a most successful
course carrying over 3,258 sailings, 3.008.889 passengers, 335.936 private
vehicles and 58.780 freight units, earning the reputation of the most popular
vessel on the route.



Blue Star Ferries wishes to thank passengers and professional hauliers for
making it their carrier of choice and will continue to offer its services for
high-quality travel to the Cyclades.
