"ON BOARD JACUZZI"
The crossing from Split to Ancona we made this year with the Blue Line ship - Regina della Pace - was, it must be said, better and more comfortable than the same crossing we made last year with the Jadrolinija ship. The crew were very helpful; the dinner in the restaurant good. We booked the luxurious "executive" cabin and were amazed to find it contained a jacuzzi (which we didn't use) but it has to be said that there was a distinct smell of drains in the bathroom area.

"Excellent ferry journey from Croatia to Italy"
Ferry check was open very early, easy to check in and fairly short queues. Boarding 1 hour and a half early meant ferry left on time. Easy to board. Staff very helpful on board, helped me to find my cabin. Cabin was comfortable and suited my needs at a very good price. Self service restaurant was used for breakfast - good varied menu and competative prices. Ferry arrived on time and disenbarking was easy. Would recommend to others

The Croatian city of Split is Croatia's second largest city and is located in the Dalmatia region of the country. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea and is spread across a central peninsular. The city is an important transport hub, with many connections to the islands in the Adriatic Sea and to the Apennine Peninsular, and is also a popular tourist destination. The city can trace its history back to the 4th century BC, when it was a Greek colony of Aspalathos. Modern day Split is a lively city with many sights to keep tourists busy including the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the Diocletian's Palace is one of the world's most impressive Roman monuments. Located within the city's old walls there are many bars, restaurants, cafes and shops that will cater for everything tourists would need. The mountains behind the city provide a lovely backdrop to Split and provide a stark contrast to the blue waters of the Adriatic.
Ferries operating from the city's port depart to Ancona, Pescara, Rijeka , Korcula, Dubrovnik and Mljet.
The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years. It is popular for its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy, which the city itself has many things to offer its visitors. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.
Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
