On Sunday 15 July, Minoan Lines started a new daily route, connecting Piraeus with Chania.

Chania is the second largest city of Crete, after Heraklion, and the capital of the Chania regional unit. It lies along the north coast of the island, about 145km west of Heraklion.

The 6h30 minute route is operated by the Grimaldi Group owned cruise ferry MYKONOS PALACE.
