I was quite satisfied the cabin which was very well located and clean, the crossing was perfect, only problem was that the food wasn't so good.

Took the ferry crossing from civitavecchia to Palermo rather than drive down the coast. Great decision as the crossing was smooth and the double cabin really comfortable. Our only negative was the slow loading and unloading, although this appeared to be a busy crossing. Overall great value for money and we throughly recommend the Fantastic.

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.

Located in the Lazio region of central Italy, the town of Civitavecchia can be found in the province of Rome and has a seaport on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is around 80 km to the north west of Rome. Located in an 18th century building that once belonged to Clemente XIII, visitors will find the Archaeological Museum of Civitavecchia. The building was originally constructed to house the headquarters of the papal garrison. In the museum visitors will see archaeological findings from the town of Centumcellae (the ancient name for Civitavecchia) and from the town's immediate surroundings. In the town's main square visitors will also find another interesting attraction. The Cathedral dedicated to San Francis of Assisi was built over a church that already existed and which the Franciscan fathers had built upon concession by Pope Paul V in 1610.
The town's harbour, formed by two piers and a breakwater, upon which stands a lighthouse, accommodates ferries to destinations including Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia.
The Italian city of Palermo is located on the island of Sicily. Palermo lies on the north west coast and has a particularly large and important natural port, next to the Monte Pellegrino. With a typical Mediterranean character and plenty of coastal appeal, Palermo dates back as far as the 8th century and is today known for many different things, such as its Norman buildings, magnificent palaces and lively local markets. The historic centre of Palermo is the Quattro Canti district, which means the 'Four Corners'. A number of the city's most impressive attractions reside here, such as the Royal Palace. Also worth a visit is the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta (Cattedrale). It is quite overwhelming and the sheer size and detail of the architecture has to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated. Visitors should also look out for the medieval Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi, the 12th-century Castello della Zisa (Zisa Castle) and the Teatro Massimo, a recently restored theatre offering regular performances.
Ferries from the city's port depart to Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples and Tunisia.
