"A great way to travel to Sardinia"
Reviewed 16 November 2013 by Dale
We were impressed with the amenities on the ferry. Travelling overnight in October, the pool wasn't open, but it looked like it would be fun in the summer. The staff was pleasant and the food in the dining room looked good. We ordered a tasty sandwich from the bar in the lounge, before retiring for the night on a chair in the salon. The chairs do not recline. We noticed that many people seemed to sleep on the sofas in the lounge.

"lack of information sharing at 5 hours late "

At the counter in Civitavecchia, we were kindly informed that the crossing takes two hours longer because of a slower ferry. When the arrival but then needed a further 3-4 hours, we did not get more info and also no small "compensation" for example, in the form of drinks or snacks - I found a bit cheap. Otherwise, the offer is on board all right.

"beautiful crossing "
Reviewed 02 September 2013 by Georg
The crossing was very nice, ship OK, staff friendly, language almost exclusively italian (presumably because of departure in Rome / Civitavecchia, 99% Roman on board). Too bad that the whole ship was crowded with sleeping passengers on all corners.

Civitavecchia (which means 'ancient town') is a town and comune of the province of Rome in the central Italian region of Lazio and also sea port on the Tyrrhenian sea. The harbor was originally constructed by the Emperor Trajan; the town indeed owed its origin entirely to the port of this emperor, and hence came to be known as Portus Trajani. The harbor is formed by two moles and a breakwater, on which latter is a lighthouse. The place became a free port under Pope Innocent XII in 1696. It suffered at the hands of the Goths and Saracens, and was occupied by the French in 1849. The Papal troops opened the gates of the fortress to the Italian general Bixio in 1870. It was almost completely destroyed in the second world war. But it has been rebuilt since. Certainly the recent constructions have made the urban layout rather difficult to appreciate, but if you take your time ther is plenty to discover.
The town of Olbia is situated on a plain, in the farthest point inland of the Gulf of Olbia, on the north-eastern coast of Sardinia, in front of the island of Tavolara. It is an important town in this area and has a busy port and airport. In fact, the Olbia port is the busiest on the whole island with thousands of visitors arriving every day, particularly in summer.
The town is believed to have been founded in Punic times (6th century B.C.) and became an important trading settlement during the Roman Era. The many archaeological remains to be seen are testimony to this flourishing Roman period.
In the 1960s Olbia experienced a genuine demographic boom linked to the rapid development in the tourist industry of the whole Gallura region. The economy is based on tourism, but also boasts a healthy food industry and an important fishing and mussel farming sector.
