Title: PASSENGER/CAR FERRY FROM ALEXANDRIA TO PIRAEUS
Post by: Brett Bachmann on November 24, 2018, 09:25:18 am
Good day,
My friend is travelling on her own from Cape Town to Scotland and is now in Egypt and is battling to find a ferry service for herself and car from Alexandria to Piraeus.
Appreciate any links !
Kind regards,
Brett

Following links may have already been checked out by your friend but I'll toss them out there anyway...

Visemar Line (Alexandria-Venice route)

Grimaldi Group (Adriatic RO/RO service)

Best of luck...

I did some looking around and I found several posts that state ferry services out of Egypt have been suspended. Here are a couple of examples of the kinds of posts I found, good luck to your friend.

This one deals more with Italy, but it might explain why it is so hard to find a ferry. https://www.aferry.co.uk/ferries-to-egypt.htm

Ignazio Messina seem to running a regular freight roro service with JOLLY CRISTALLO (also JOLLY PERLA and JOLLY QUARZO circular route Alexandria-Turkey-Naples-Genoa-Alexandria.  Sometimes this kind of service can take private vehicles by special arrangement.
