We enjoyed our Ferry ride. We had our own cabin so were able to relax and reach our destination well rested.

"Trip to Barcelona and return"
Reviewed 22 October 2013 by David
A pleasant trip that saved us a long drive,general facilities were adequate for our needs. Did not however find the catering particularly good definitely the snacks in the bar on the pool deck were better value. My wife was offered a glass of ice and a small black coffee when she asked for iced coffee in one of the bars,need one say more.Cabins were clean however on the return a new shower head would be a recommendation. Rest of the ship was clean especially as going there were a number of dogs on board. No staff problems or punctuality issues.
Would definitely recommend this trip and boat to others who wished to do as we did not spend two days driving through Italy and southern France to reach northern Spain.

We thoroughly enjoyed our crossing. Our cabin was spacious and there was plenty of cupbards, but the whole cabin vibrated all the time I guess from the engines, which seemed to be under our cabin. This was especially noticeable when trying to read in bed,when sitting up and leaning on the head board. The food was tasty but not very hot!
Apart from that we thought the ship well appointed, and the drill was very informative and the crew excellent.

"Civitavecchia to Barcelona Oct 2013"
Reviewed 15 October 2013 by Andrew
My wife and I this trip with some trepidation as the last time we sailed was in the 1970’s, and was something we planned never to repeat.
However, clearly things have changed considerably and this was really a 5* experience.
We were welcomed aboard and shown to our outside cabin, which was clean and fresh.
The food and drink were very reasonably priced and service was exceptional.
All in all, despite the sea conditions which we never really felt, we would not hesitate to recommend this crossing.

1) Passengers were asked to check in two hours before boarding, and the receptionist made clear her disapproval that I was 15 mins late. Yet nearly an hour after departure time, trucks were still being loaded. The same rule should apply to all.
2) When I wanted to advise my hosts that I would be late, I was charged for a wi-fi connection (which didn't work) although the delay was the company's fault, as stated above.
3) Every one of the three bars had non-stop pop music playing; on deck 11 it was so loud that it was difficult to communicate with the staff and impossible to hear announcements. There should be at least one silent area.
4) On arrival at Barcelona, no Grimaldi staff were available to advise passengers about transport or other issues, even though their office is above the terminal and appeared occupied as the lights were on.
