"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 .

"Some good and some bad points"

Reviewed 18 September 2013 by Antoinette

Our journey from Genoa to Palermo was as we expected. The inbound crossing was different. Boarding was hell. 20 minutes after we were supposed to leave, all the campervans (ours included) were still on the deck and the crew didn't want to let us board. We had to negociate and weren't given any assistance to install the vehicles on board. The boat wasn't the one which was supposed to be used. The vehicle were in open deck and were watered by the sea. The boat was too small for the number of passengers. We left 2.30h late with no explanation or excuse. Some passengers protested, but the staff disclaimed all responsability and said that their job was merely to bring us from Palermo to Genoa. Therefore, we were not satisfied with the services during this crossing.

"Very disappointed"

Reviewed 06 September 2013 by Laurent

We are disappointed with the service. A 3h delay for the inbound journey and no excuse. Wife and children had to queue on foot. The swimming pool is only open for a very short time. No activities or show. The bedding was far from being clean. And the smell of animal urine was unbearable! We had travelled to Ireland and to Corsica before and the conditions of travel were a lot better.
