  • "Cheaper than booking on Bluelines own website!"

    We have for years booked directly with Bluelines Ancona to Split, Croatia. It used to be excellent value 'low cost' a really good service. Something happened this year, the steadily rising prices suddenly took a hike in the wrong direction! Pricing them out of the market. We looked elsewhere to Direct Ferries who cut £60 off the bill. When we arrived at the ferry, it was no longer Blue lines but SNAV an Italian line have they amalgamated? Is this why the prices are now so high and the restaurant a rip off?

  • "a great trip"

    We went from Ancona to Split in July and the whole experience was good. Room was comfortable, shower good, and boat had lots of decks. I have been on nicer ferries, but this one was good and will go on it again.
