All morning ferries have been cancelled and some of the afternoon ferries will depart later in the evening as they may be re-scheduled to depart after midnight when the strike will have ended.
Ferries returning to Athens from the islands will almost always run the final return trip even during the strike period. Passengers are advised to check with the local port authorities for up-to-date info.
