Most people didn't think to click OPTIONS and select Avoid Ferries. The route you are asking about would appear instantly if you do this. Note that on this route there is a €34 one way toll for crossing the Storebælt bridge. (There are also return tolls for evenings, weekends and bank holidays.) This route is also about 140km longer than the route using the ...

It's obviously impossible to prove a negative, but given that AFerry do not currently list any Egyptian ports AND The Man In Seat61 says "There are currently no ferries to Egypt" I would say that at the time of writing, the answer is NO.

According to Visit Greenland, at the time of writing there are no ferries to Greenland from either Canada nor Iceland nor Denmark. Indeed Greenland doesn't seem to be an appealing market for inter-country ferries. The linked site nevertheless suggests hopping on a cruise that includes Greenland on its list of destinations, as these are becoming more and more ...

Article 21 of the Schengen Borders Code specifies that The abolition of border control at internal borders shall not affect [...] (b) the possibility for a Member State to provide by law for an obligation to hold or carry papers and documents [...] So, strictly speaking, you ought to check with Italy and Greece to see whether they require someone who ...

I think it is fairly certain that no such ferries exist. (Confirmed at turkeytravelplanner.com.) Until just recently (10-15 year?) there were no interaction at all between Greece and Turkey. What you can do is to get a ferry from Çeşme (just outside of Izmir) to Chios and from there get on a night ferry to Athens or Thessaloniki. I also found a schematic ...

Own experience/common knowledge answer, so no links. If you booked a ticket on which there is no free cancelation within the last 24 hours, you owe the company the money. If you make it impossible to get the money from your debit card, you may be charged in an other way. Your best bet is to claim back from your travel insurance. Sometimes companies allow ...

No, advance booking is not required, you can generally walk up and buy tickets. This applies to both the slow ferries and the hydrofoils on the primary routes (Busan-Fukuoka, Busan-Shimonoseki). Of course, this assumes there is availability on the ferries, but outside absolute peak travel seasons (Golden Week etc) this is unlikely to be a problem, ...

Adding to @AakashM's answer, there seems to be no active passenger ferry from Europe to Egypt, but according to ferry.co.uk: From Europe – There is now a brand new ferry from Venice to Alexandria.

With Anek you are likely to arrive in Souda rather than in the Chania port. According to the official Municipality of Chania website, which links to this Chania Tourism website in English, there are buses running between Souda and the main market square in Chania, departing every 20-odd minutes. To date these seem to be operated by Chania Bus. For more ...

Beautiful photos, they certainly capture the atmosphere there. There is indeed no airport and the supply vessel, Marion Dufresne is not really a ferry. It transports the personnel and supplies destined for the research facilities on the Crozet, Kerguelen and Saint Paul & Amsterdam islands. The round trip from Reunion Island takes one month when ...

You will most likely not be allowed to travel in the car, because it will be shipped on a cargo vessel. You also do not want to do this; because on a cargo vessel you do not have the luxury of a ferry where there is room to walk around, facilities, etc. To my knowledge, there are no ferries across the Atlantic. Your choices are cruise ships (where they ...

May be it's too late, but here is the result of my research. I haven't found the price for the line Navbul mentioned by the op, but there is another company that connects Varna (Bulgaria) and Batumi/Poti (Georgia) ports: UKRFerry The price for this route is from 120 USD per person (depending on the accomodation chosen) and 350 USD per car.

Two days ago I took the Weidong ferry from Qingdao to Incheon, while both the Lonely Planet book and the ferry company web site state 775 CNY as the cheapest fare (economy bed) plus 30 CNY port tax = 805 CNY, the actual ticket was just 458 + 30 = 488 CNY Both China and South Korea have National holidays soon, so I don't think this was an off-season price. ...

Call the bus companies you consider using. Some of them change between ferries and train on different times of the day and some change over regularly or irregularly, depending on things I have never been able to work out. From what I hear it is often a surprise which connection they use. If you want to be sure you will use a ferry to the continent, you can ...

There are no official requirements that a transportation carrier must check any id documents for travel within the Schengen area. If a carrier requires you to present an id, it is to fulfil their own needs, e.g. to prevent black-market sales of personalized tickets or to authenticate print-at-home tickets. There are airlines allowing you to fly without ...

When reading the FAQ and different parts of the website, the provided information is quite confusing, it might be possible to add passengers for free, depending on your fare type. For one, they mention that any change for the Dover-Dunkirk route should happen on the phone and that there will be a cost of 10GBP/15EUR plus the difference between the former ...

The chance of the ferry being too full for walk on passengers is fairly low. They can get sold out for vehicles, but bicycles are not effected by that since they are stored along the sides, not in vehicle spaces. If you are buying your ticket that morning I would arrive at least an hour ahead in case there are lots of folks checking in or go the day before ...

As I remember, there are few different routes that you can take. Last time me and my girlfriend did almost the same route as you did. From Ayvalik to Lesbos (Lesvos, or Midilli in Turkish) The city is in a bit north. Ticket was around 20 Euro. I guess this would be the calmest route. Immigrants were usually going to the chios island. It was this company: ...

Since you're a fellow Canadian, we hope you came across our London - Brussels route offer on Busbud. :) We know of at least four bus companies operating England - Belgium. It's our understanding that the channel crossing mode changes happen based on traffic, delays and driver time behind the wheel rules. So you might, as previously mentioned, consider ...

If the French Wikitravel article on Kerguelen is to be believed, there is no airport on the island: Aucune infrastructure n'est prévue pour permettre l'atterrissage d'avions, un tel projet pourtant entamé il y a quelques années est aujourd'hui retombé dans l'oubli. ... which translates as: No infrastructure is present to permit the landing of ...

Talk of extended ferry links and regular international ferries has been going on for years, and not just that route. I know because I've long wondered about being able to travel out of the Philippines without flying. On that particular route it appears it is going ahead and it will go ahead soon. Note that 'soon' in the Philippines can typically mean ...

I'm giving you my general opinion as an Egyptian not as an expert so don't take my answer for granted. Even if the regular ferry is not operating anymore, I think there will be other ferries there but not as regular. You have to be there and ask you might get lucky just plan for extra day. As far as I know the ferry used to be operated by Thomas Cook. You ...

It depends on how willing you are to wait. Over the weekend, particularly a Friday night outbound and a Sunday return journey you will likely miss a ferry or two. On a long weekend during the summer, you could be waiting a long time. My two cents worth, 15 bucks is worth the piece of mind.

Based on what I've found, it appears that there was a ferry service that ran from Venice–Tartous–Alexandria–Venice from approximately May 2010–June 2011, at which time service was suspended due to the beginning of the Syrian Civil War. The beginning of service is cited here. Note this text is almost exactly the same text as found by @gmauch (complete with ...

Ferries generally follow a timetable (departing and arriving et predetermined times) and a specific route. Google Maps has a database of the known ferry routes that contains the lengths of various routes, the time can easily be calculated from the timetable. Both numbers are then included in the driving directions.
