"Good sailing - stock up on food stuffs before you sail"

Reviewed 14 September 2014 by Sandra

We booked a sailing from Genova to Palermo with our car. The booking and boarding was easy - arriving at Genova/Palermo a few hours before departure. We opted for sleeping seats not cabins - these were fine. The ship was comfortable with plenty of toilets nearby and shower facilities. The only down side was disembarkation of the ship with the car, this was rather disorganised - some near misses and narrowly avoiding damage to our car. Be warned the cost of foods on board are expensive and queues for a cup of café can be long. At Genova port, we noticed many Italians heading off the attached shopping centre and stocking up, and we followed suit. Just as well as this kept us going during the 19+ hour trip with plenty of bottle water and snacks. A cool box would also be ideal.

"Genova to Palermo"

Reviewed 29 August 2014 by Patrick

For a 21 hour trip the restaurants were only open for a tiny proportion of it. So availability of proper food was pretty bad. The food served on boarding the ship was cold, but tasted ok. I would have paid for a waiter served restaurant. The photo shoot on entry to the ship gave the impression it was a cruise ship instead of a ferry. Not amused. Why not stick to the kids when you are doing it. Being forced to listen to overly loud and poor entertainment for the last two hours in the lounge once we had to vacate the cabin was extremely stressful and irritating.

"a short comment"

Reviewed 07 July 2014 by Anonymous

We've been taking the Suprema to travel between Genoa and Palermo for 7 years. I was unpleasantly surprised to see that the external cabins are no longer equiped with televisors. If you want to have the TV, you have to book an expensive suite. The rest was ok as usual.

"Calm crossing"

Reviewed 02 July 2014 by Robin

We had an excellent crossing to Palermo. The ship was very comfortable, the cabin clean and spacious with a good view of the sea. Facilities on board were good though my wife thought that the shop was somewhat lacking. The staff were very polite. My only criticism was the time taken to load the cars and to unload them again. It was no doubt due to the layout of the ship which is not only for passengers but also for containers. A two and a half hour wait was a little too long .
