The journey to Melilla was very good. There were no big waves so the ship didn't move that much. It arrived on time to Melilla. The return was as good but during the night. The arrival in Malaga was also punctual.

"A cabin or nothing"
Reviewed 16 September 2013 by Bourzigui
After a 12 hours drive under a scorching heay, you are tired, hungry and in need of washing. When you board the ferry, you think that you will be able to eat something, get some fresh air on the deck. However, it didn't happen this way. In spite our booking seats, two people in our group had nowhere to seat (except on the floor). Those who could get a seat weren't able to nap with the bright light and the sound of the TV in Spanish. We thought that we would eat at least. However, there were only pork based sandwiches. We thought that a ferry going to a muslim country would have something else. PS: The 3 hours crossing was quick, but you need a good stomach

"A crush for the boarding passes"
Reviewed 07 September 2013 by Abdelhafid
The boat is clean and well laid out. The problem is with boarding. The queue are poorly organised. It takes at least 1h30 to get the boarding card despite of the self service machines - which are not always working…

Malaga is a port city in Andalucia, southern Spain, on the Costa del Sol coast of the Mediterranean. 3.000 years ago the Phoenicians landed in Malaga, they called it Malaca (probably from the word malac - to salt) and they used the harbour as an important centre for salting fish. The Greeks followed the Phoenicians in the 6th century B.C. Malaga was further developed by the Romans, who colonised Spain in 218 B.C. and stayed for more than six centuries. In 711 A.D. The Moors invaded Spain and called her Al-Andalus. Malaga became a major Moorish city and port, famed for Figs and Wine. It was one of the last Moorish cities to fall to the Christian conquerors, Isabella and Ferdinand in 1487. The quarters of El Perchel, La Trinidad and Lagunillas surround the centre. The city gains much revenue from the agricultural sector and from tourism. The painter Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas were born in Malaga.
Melilla is a Spanish exclave in North Africa, located on the northern tip of Maghreb, on the Mediterranean coast. Traditionally considered part of Andalusia for historical reasons, it was administered as part of Malaga province prior to the March 14, 1995 Statute of Autonomy, and was a free port before Spain joined the European Union. It was a Phoenician and later Punic establishment under the name of Rusadir. Later it became a part of the Roman province of Hispania Nova Ulterior Tingitana in Hispania. As centuries passed, it went through Vandal, Byzantine and Hispano-Visigothic hands. Melilla was on the frontier of the Kingdom of Tlemcen and the Kingdom of Fes when the Juan Alfonso Perez de Guzman El Bueno 3rd Duke of Medina Sidonia reconquered it in 1497, a few years after Castille had taken control of the last Nasrid kingdom of Granada. General Francisco Franco used the city as one of his staging grounds for his rebellion in 1936, and a statue of him is still prominently featured.
