Because Blue Star didn't offer a route from Paros to Mykonos, we had to book in with Hellenic Seaways. It's a high speed ferry which is much smaller than the Blue Star Delos and it has assigned seating that's laid out much like airplane seating. I booked with them online and was emailed a PDF document that clearly stated that these were my electronic tickets and to please print and present upon boarding.
I handed the printed PDF to one of the men collecting the tickets who said, "What is this?" to which I responded, "Our tickets." "No, this is nothing. Please meet me upstairs on the second floor reception." So, we headed upstairs and hung around until everyone had boarded and the man then inspected the tickets and ended up eating his words as his colleague assured him and us that these were valid. What an ass.
We paid $275 per night and this was the most expensive hotel room we stayed in through the whole trip Granted, it was also the largest and had the best bathroom so it was probably worth the price. However, it should also be said that in general, we found Mykonos to be the most expensive, yes, even compared to notoriously pricey London, so there's that.
The Red Parrot, which boasted homemade gelato, so we popped in and grabbed a couple of cones.
