"Pleasant stay "

Reviewed 26 August 2014 by Anonymous

I had a relaxing overnight journey from Patras to Brindisi - the facilities are slightly dated, but fully functioning. Disembarking is a nightmare and should be better organised but other than that I would highly recommend this ferry service!

"Good trip"

Reviewed 25 August 2014 by Richard

The reviews we had read about this trip had been less than exciting so we were very pleasantly surprised. The loading process was a bit tortuous and seemed to take forever. However, once on board things improved greatly. The crew were most helpful and eased us through the rather cramped journey from the car deck on deck to to our cabin on deck 9. A rather small and inadequate lift trying to move too many people upwards at the same time. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The next pleasant surprise was the food. Reviews had complained about the quality. Our experience was the opposite, really tasty and good value. The hour and a half stop in Sardinia in the middle of the night was a surprise; not mentioned anywhere that we had seen in advance. The amenities on the ship were fine. Getting off in Barcelona was a repeat of getting on-too many people trying to cram into too small lifts but the crew helped admirably. Overall a good experience and one we would repeat. Of, the sea being flat calm no doubt helped?

"Ikarus Palace"

Reviewed 23 August 2014 by Anonymous

We had a very unpleasant experience on the Ikarus Palace. The ship had come from Tangiers before Barcelona and it was apparent as soon as we got on board that the ship had not been cleaned. Simple things like tables being wiped, bins being emptied and general tidiness. THere was very little choice in the restaurant and I would say the food was of a very low standard. We had reserved seats in the lounge area but I was so appalled by the smell and condition of the seats that we took a cabin. A lot of the seats were missing, those that were not were filthy and covered in stains. There was no air-conditioning, even though they said there was and it was 38 degrees. When i washed my hands on the toilets the drain was obviously damaged and drained onto my feet and there was vomit on one of the decks which had not been cleared up. Having said all of this our cabin was clean and tidy and the air conditioning did work. It was a very expensive trip for such poor service and low levels of cleanliness .
