I took the overnight ferry from Split to Ancona. Despite wind speeds topping 50mph and fairly choppy waters, a ship of this size just sailed through quite smoothly. The experience was generally good: the staff were friendly, helpful and competent; my 4-man cabin was clean and functional (lights, plug sockets and en-suite facilities all worked); the food was OK and everything ran to schedule. The only downsides was perhaps that there was about a 10-minute queue to check in at reception (and the ship was only about 50% booked, so I guess that queue gets longer on busy days), and the male toilets could have been a bit cleaner (some water on the floor could have been mopped up). Of course the night entertainment was a bit naff (karaoke etc.), but this isn't a glitzy cruise ship, it's a ferry. If you want to get from A to B comfortably and at a reasonable cost, this delivered. :)

"Very good experience"
The ship was very nice and had anything you would need during a 11H trip (restaurants, shopss, lounge). The rooms are spacious and clean. The departure and arrival were as described in the time table. I recommend it!

Landing was not really well organised. A crowde of people everywhere on board, corridors, stairs... It should be more secure separating the groups of the buses from the cars. Or letting only the drivers get off first. I did not use the restaurants. The cabins were enough spacious, good toilets, in conclusion comfotable enough, the best at the momente between Croatia and Italy.

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.
