Ancona Split Ferry reviews

  • "Just what we needed!"

    The ferry was a great way of getting from Italy to Croatia. All the staff were friendly, the room was more than adequate, the food wasn't amazing but you get what you pay for... it was a great night sleep and served the purpose of being both our accommodation and transport for the night... there is no wifi on board and no signal reception when you're in the middle of the sea... but we awoke feeling refreshed, clean and well rested .

  • "Pleasantly Surprised"

    Our overnight trip from Ancona to Split exceeded all expectations. From the food options to the accommodations, we were thrilled with our trip. The only negative part of our experience was the fact that the Blueline office was closed before check in & there was a sign telling passengers to go to the SNAV office for check in. So we did. But the SNAV office handbag sign telling passengers to go to the BlueLine office to check in. And there was nobody to ask. All passengers were confused for several hours. Once an SNAV employee arrived I asked her where we check in and pointed out the sign. She said the sign had been up since Friday (today was Sunday). No apology. Just said we're going to be OK.

    Good restaurant. Ship needs some money spent on fittings. Efficient service.

  • "Ancona -Split Blue line"

    Overall the ferry was better than expected. Cabin was clean and perfect. As usual typical chaos at Ancona as we had to collect our ticket from the port office (at least 2 hours in advance but allow more) . The queues were huge - only one booth open , or so we thought. Although we booked with SNAV we actually sailed on a Blueline so while I waited in the queue my husband checked out the BlueLine booth where our ticket was issued. All passengers have to embark on foot while the driver takes your vehicle on board. Make sure you have correct tickets with you so that you can queue , again , for cabin. Didn't eat on board but tried the juice bar which was 4 euros for a fresh juice. Docked in split on time but took a while to get off the ferry.
