"Trip to Bastia, October 2014"

The ferry was a great experience by and large. It was a little confusing figuring out where to go exactly to check in and get on the boat in Livorno, so if you're picking the ferry up there, make sure you have a little extra time beyond the 90 minutes. The ferry is nice though, almost like a mini-cruise ship with lounges, TVs, a couple of bars, a restuarant and a cafeteria. Even though it was a hour trip, the time passed quickly.

Easy checkin, bus to ferry from terminal, escalator to deck which was great with heavy suitcases, luggage room to store suitcases during sailing, clean ferry, smooth disembarkation. Only issue, we were told there were shuttle buses from the terminal running into Livorno. However, the only buses we saw at 6 pm on our arrival were all locked up at the exit gates so we had to walk into the main town centre. We didn't use catering so can't comment on the food but the main dining area looked very elegantly set up.

The boat left on time and the staff were very efficient and competent. The food was good and the staff were prompt to deal with any spillages or problems. We were foot passengers and we were well looked after. Would recommend.

Livorno is a port city on the Tyrrhenian Sea on the western edge of Tuscany, Italy. It is the capital of the Province of Livorno and the third-largest port on the western coast of Italy.
Livorno's port was developed under the Medici. In 1618, they declared it a free port and instituted a liberal constitution which prompted an influx of Jews, Greeks, Spanish Muslims, English Catholics and a cosmopolitan throng of other refugees. Livorno flourished, and attracted a community of English expatriates (including Shelley) whose anglicization of the city's name into Leghorn is still in use today.
Europe’s first bathing establishments were built here in the nineteenth century when the idea of seaside holidays first became popular.
Ancient seagoing traditions are also kept alive by rowing races held between the city’s various quarters, both in the sea and on the canals.
Bastia is a town and commune in northern Corsica, in France. It is the préfecture (capital) of the Haute-Corse département. It is also the principal port of the island and its principal commercial town.
The city dates from Roman times, when a base was set up at Biguglia to the south, although Bastia began to thrive under the Genoese, when wine was exported to the Italian mainland from Porto Cardo, forerunner of Bastia's Vieux Port, or Terra Vecchia. Despite the fact that in 1811 Napoléon appointed Ajaccio capital of the island, initiating a rivalry between the two towns which exists to this day, Bastia soon established a stronger trading position with mainland France.
The Nouveau Port, created in 1862 to cope with the increasing traffic with France and Italy, became the mainstay of the local economy, exporting chiefly agricultural products from Cap Corse, Balagne and the eastern plain
