  • "Nice way to travel"

    Getting on and off the ferry was well organised and the staff were excellent. Our cabin was much better than we were expecting so we had a great night's sleep. We ate in the restaurant, where the food was good and the service was exceptional.

  • "A Refreshing and Pleasant Experience"

    We took the overnight ferry from Ancona to Split and were very pleasantly surprised with the experience. We had a 2-bed berth in an outside cabin. The cabin was clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and found the food to be of good quality and reasonably priced. This was a nice break for us during a 2-week car trip through Europe and the Balkans. It was refreshing to get from Italy to Croatia with a break from driving. We had a good night's sleep and woke ready to explore Split, where we landed at 7am. Really glad we chose to take the ferry instead of driving.
