"Good service, a time saver."
I just sailed with a Pullman seat, a little noisy but not too crowded and I was able to get a decent nights sleep. We arrived early and all went well.

"Experience with Grandi Navi Veloci"
At both Barcelona and Genoa we were not given any instructions how to find the correct terminal. No signage to the correct terminals, it was a totally nightmare and chaos. On the Excellence we did not hear any announcements in English. No announcements were made or any information given regarding where do go in the case of an accident at sea!! The cabins on both ships were very dirty. The Splendid was so bad we couldn't use the shower it was filthy, no plug in sink and the hair dryer didn't work!!! The whole cabin smelt of dust, hadn't been vacuumed for a long time. There were holes in all the sheets and the blankets hadn't been washed for a long time. We used the al la carte restaurant. On birth ships the restaurant was freezing cold, as was most of the ship. The food was not good and far too expensive. My husband ordered a shrimp risotto, it was a bowl of moulded rice turned upside down with one prawn on it!!! Tasteless!! €13 or €14.

"Bad cleaning in the cabins"

Both on the outbound and return the cleaning left a lot to be desired, especially in the services of the 9th floor where are the seat lounges. For the outbound leg, as the ferry came from Tangier, you can not talk about lack of cleanliness instead of obvious soiling. Besides noone of the crew member decided to go to see if everything was in good condition. We had to try to sleep with the TV blaring, the lights on and the air conditioning turning on at maximum, I guess to try to hide somehow the bad odors. In case of the return journey (where the staff was much more friendly), in Genoa all we had seats and with final destination to Barcelona placed us in a lounge without television and we could turn off the lights to rest. However, even if we requested at reception, they did not turn down the air conditioning. It is highly recommended in these conditions bring warm clothes for sleeping. In the self-service, the quality of the food is the characteristic of a school canteen service, but not their prices. In the cafeteria the prices go up and even if you order the cheapest and it is price list, is never available. In the case of the ship at the outbound with Asian staff, the service was unpleasant and bad attention. I am well aware that the ferry is a means of transport but the company should take care both facilities (in terms of hygiene and updating) as customer relations, whatever the accommodation paid.

The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.
Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.
The port city of Genoa is located in the Liguria region of Italy and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Genoa's historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys that open up onto small squares and is where visitors can't fail to appreciate the history and culture that embodies the city. Architecturally there are many different styles sitting side by side with a medieval wall acting as a base for a 14th century building on Gothic loggias. Genoa really is a place where the past literally forms the foundations of the present.
The city's old port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, is a popular draw for tourists who go there to take in all the sites the old port area has to offer. A popular site located close to the pier is the city's lighthouse where lovely views of Genoa and its Gulf can be had.
Genoa's ferry terminal is located in the Calata Chiappella and ferries depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco. The terminal building has all of the usual passenger facilities and is also wheelchair friendly.
