There seems to be a problem with the booking page - some of the crossings are listed twice.

Monday is still a problem for me. 07:25 is too early (hours at the airport) and 13:45 is too late so I am faced with changing my flight to Sunday or Tuesday, or cancelling altogether. What have other people decided to do?

Hi Wendy, just read your question: yes, it is early 7.25, but we booked it and then go slowly towards the airport .
If there is a bus (considering it is holiday maybe there a less connections) we take it, otherwise we have to take train or last possibility a taxi .
I saw anneporter also booked at 7.25, so you wont' be alone leaving so early. Our check-in closes at 14.30 h on monday afternoon.
Hope you decide to come Wendy, now that we finally got the chance to book :-)
Bye Andrea

Hi Andrea, Dem & Anne

You are all very persuasive. Dem: I know you were being cruel to be kind! I have booked the 07:25. It is very early for my flight but I will enjoy the company as far as the airport and Andrea - I may just leave my luggage at the airport and take you up on your suggestion to visit Athens for a few hours if local transport is running OK on the holiday.

Oh, and I can stick with the Mistral as I will have no BA change fees to pay.

It is such a relief to finally have all the arrangements in place.

Wendy

Relieved to have now been able to book both crossings. Had visions of being stranded on the island for days - deep joy !
I am taking the 17.00 hrs crossing on Tuesday 7th and leaving Hydra at 12.10 hrs on 14th.

Mollydog and I will be meeting up at about 13.00 hrs at the airport on 7th to travel to Piraeus together and if anyone else is around at the same time and would like to meet up please let us know.

Counting the days.

Wendy - We are staying at the Mistral as well. I have had great interaction with Jenny so far and looking forward to the stay!

Todd:

I like all these three, Aigina, Poros, Spetses
but if I had to choose only one I would choose Spetses.


Dem - Thanks for the recommendation on Spetses. I think we will go there on June 16 to explore. Do you (or you too Sophia and Stamatina) have a recommendation on a place to stay? Am looking at the Nissia Hotel at the moment. I am certainly welcome to any and all suggestions from anyone!

All - Looking forward to meeting you all in just about five weeks!
