Rarely seen such a dirty ship. There were paper, plastic, food scraps under the bed and in the closet. The bathroom .... this one falls there. Filthy. Did not flush, so that after three visits to the toilet, the WC threatened to overflow. public toilets could not enter sheer stench and overflowing toilets. We traveled with dogs. We were allowed to stay only on the upper deck. This " space " was open and in winter. Here met all dog owners and smokers. It was incredibly cold and so dirty. To buy food I would advise against cold, poor quality and overpriced.

I am not satisfied with the quality of the crossing with Grandi Navi Veloci. The boat was very unconfortable, the toilets were unusable after a couple of hours. Moreover, most people had a seat on the deck, but sat in the restaurant or un the lounge with their air mattress. They had a more confortable journey than the people who paid for seats. In the morning, it was impossible to have coffee at the bar, because the restaurant was completly camped out. I would not renew the experience.

The trip was relaxing and hassle free. The staff were very helpful and professional. Both outward and return journeys were delayed in the arriving by an hour. In general we can give a good judgement to this crossing.

The seats are a bit uncomfortable. It would be nicer if nobody was sleeping in the corridors, but crossing was OK.

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.
Palermo is the principal city and administrative seat of the autonomous region of Sicily, Italy as well as the capital of the Province of Palermo. It was founded in the 8th century BC by Phoenician tradesmen around a natural harbour on the north-western coast of Sicily. The Phoenician name for the city may have been Zîz, but Greeks called it Panormus, meaning all-port, because of its fine natural harbour. It should be noted however that the city was never Greek. Palermo is widely considered to be the most conquered city in the world. The long history of the city assures that there is a lot to see, although the city as a whole, as well as some of the sights, are in need of repair. Today Palermo is a fast, brash and exciting city. The mix of arabic and viking influences is one of the strangest and unexpected surprises the city has to offer. Buildings dating from the 11th and 12th century, the heyday of Medieval Sicily, offer this peculiar quality.
