As many of yoy may know, I'm webmaster of a site on Greek ferries (www.adriaticandaegeanferries.com)
, so I'm particularly interested about them. I love our ferries, particularly the ex-Japanese ones, and my two favourite ferries in Greece are the El. Venizelos, our flagship, and the Lato, in my opinion the best ever ferry conversion from Japan. Anyway, I think that these years we're lacking the class, the luxe, the intelligence which was usual on older ferries and conversion like the ex-Minoan Japanese ferries, the Lato, the Lissos, the sisters Ionian Island and Galaxy, the Rodanthi, the Marina, the Dame M. Unfortunately now, due to wrong and stupid laws, ferries are equipped with very uncomprehensible internal arrangements, and ferries like the Nissos Mykonos, which also runs on overnight services, has 971 seats and only 31 cabins! The same for many ex-channel ferries, which often are rebuilt as "waiting halls". Particularly, I think that the former "Pride of Kent" was not an object of beauty neither in her former appearance, so Greeks could have not get her more worse than it was! But, I think that she could have been a good ferry on Rhodes line, if only she had 500 more berths, decent internal space and an outdoor swimming pool at stern.
