"Mega Smeralda is a nice ferry!"
This is a really nice 'old school' ferry with a variety of places to eat and drink, plenty of outside space, very reminiscent of the much lamented Pride of Bilbao that sailed between the UK and Spain for many, many years. Ours was a daytime crossing so didn't get to see any entertainment or sample the cabins but I could imagine a night crossing would be a pleasant experience. The crew are a happy bunch too which adds to the good atmosphere on board. The loading/unloading procedure was perhaps a little frantic and the tying down of motorcycles a little haphazard (I was left to sort out my own as the guys seemed to lose interest after the first few), but all in all, as ferry crossings go, very enjoyable.

WE sailed with Corsica Sardinia Ferries from Bastia to Nice at the beginning of Oct. 2014. It's a five and a half hour trip and it has been our most enjoyable ferry trip ever.Calm seas,warm sunshine, sun deck and deckchairs and an enjoyable breakfast made the trip feel like a mini cruise. I have to admit that our main ferry journeys have all been on the Irish sea in recent years, but nonetheless I would like to applaud Corsica Sardinia Ferries.

"Perfect length to get work done between vacation spots"
I found the crew and accommodations to be adequate for getting work done between my destinations. The time between (~5 hours) provided me ample time to catch up on tasks while the enjoying a tasty beverage or two.

Located in the haute-Corse department of France, in the north east of the island of Corsica lies the town of Bastia. The town is Corsica's main hub for commercial activity and is also its principal port, which is in fact divided into three parts. The old port ("Vieux Port") lies in a narrow cove and is mainly used by non-commercial operators such as pleasure and fishing boats. The commercial ferry port is a little north of the town and even further to the north is the Toga Marina which is mainly used by leisure craft such as yachts and sailing boats.
There are a number of visitor attractions in the town including The Museum of Corsica. There is also The Fortress with its keep and 16th century bell tower which provides great views over the old port, Terra Vecchia, the mountains and the coast. There is also the former palace of the Genoese governors which is now home to the museum of Corsican Ethnography.
The ferry Port of Bastia links Bastia to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).
The French city of Nice is the capital of the Cote d'Azur and is a world famous cosmopolitan tourist destination and is perfect for sun lovers. The coastline around the city is spectacular and is popular all year round with its warm and sunny summer months, and mild winters. Many visitors to the resort choose to simply relax on one of the many beaches or to swim in the azure waters off the coast. There are many free stretches of public beach in the city but there are also around 15 private beaches, called 'plages concedees', where sun loungers can be hired.
Another popular pastime whilst in the city is to take a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais (the Promenade of the English) which dates back nearly 200 years and borders the city's Mediterranean Sea coast and runs for about 6 km. There are many beautiful spots along the promenade where visitors like to sit and take in the spectacular views. The coastline of Nice is full of tourist attractions, and nearby there are also a number of appealing Côte d'Azur towns and cities. Also close to Nice are many traditional Provençal villages, which are full of character.
