The barman often seemed bothered when you asked them for a simple coffee. The lavatories were very clean, the cuisine was good and the prices were reasonable.

It was perfect, the service was good, we departed and arrived on time. What else can you ask? Maybe a slightly cheaper fare for the car.

We've had good experiences with Moby Lines before and their good customer service was confirmed once again. No need to go and collect tickets from an office on arrival at the port, but straight on to the queue, handover your reservation confirmation and your ticket is printed on the spot. What's exceptional is how friendly all staff on the ship is, and they all try to speak English. The announcements are also bilingual, in Italian nad English. The ferry is very clean, modern, spacious and with ample seating. Unfortunately there are no chairs on the outer decks, so it's advisable to bring a folding chair. The ship departed right on time. Moby Lines is a fine example to other ferry companies going to Sardinia.

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.
The town of Olbia is situated on a plain, in the farthest point inland of the Gulf of Olbia, on the north-eastern coast of Sardinia, in front of the island of Tavolara. It is an important town in this area and has a busy port and airport. In fact, the Olbia port is the busiest on the whole island with thousands of visitors arriving every day, particularly in summer.
The town is believed to have been founded in Punic times (6th century B.C.) and became an important trading settlement during the Roman Era. The many archaeological remains to be seen are testimony to this flourishing Roman period.
In the 1960s Olbia experienced a genuine demographic boom linked to the rapid development in the tourist industry of the whole Gallura region. The economy is based on tourism, but also boasts a healthy food industry and an important fishing and mussel farming sector.
