"Trip from Split to Ancona"
Reviewed 24 August 2014 by Kiara
The trip itself was very good. The staff were helpful and we were stoked with our seats. If I was to comment on the leniency of tickets, I would comment on the topic of allowing people who purchased standing seats to enter the section of those who purchased reserved seating. We are travelling for an extended period of time and are on a budget yet purchased reserved seating and paid extra for this. Although during our trip, customers who purchased standing seats woke me throughout the trip to see if anyone was using the seat next to me. As a customer I was not happy that people woke me during my sleep to take a 'free' reserved seat next to me. I paid £190 for myself and another person to sit on this ferry and was very unhappy to be awoken by people who paid nowhere near as much as me, to steal the free seat next to me. But I do thank the lady staff member that saw me shivering during the trip and tucked a blanket around me.

Smooth ride. Furniture is showing its age, but bed was comfortable. We didn't use the dining or entertainment facilities.

There wasn't any problem with the loading, the staff was ok. Our cabin on deck 9 was spacious with a matrimonial bed, a mini bar, a TV and a bathroom. Diner was well servious. The ferry is quiet and well maintained. We arrived on time. It was a bit slow to access the vehicles, it wasn't a major issue. It was a beautiful and problem free crossing.

Split is the largest and most important city in Dalmatia, the administrative center of Croatia's Split-Dalmatia county.
The city is situated on a small peninsula on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea. Although the beginnings of Split are usually linked to the building of Diocletian's Palace, there is evidence that this area was inhabited as a Greek colony even earlier.
Diocletian was a Roman emperor who ruled between AD 284 and 305 and was known for his reforms and persecution of Christians. He ordered the work on the palace to begin in 293 in readiness for his retirement from politics in 305.
Today, Split is a city who's economy relies mostly on trade and tourism. There are also some old industries undergoing a much needed revival, such as agriculture (fishing, olive, wine production), paper, concrete, and chemicals.
Ancona is a provincial capital of the Marche region, not quite midway down the Adriatic coast of Italy. It is one of Italy's more important ports, the terminus of the main rail line through central Italy, and the point of departure for many lines of passenger ships and ferries to Croatia, Albania and Greece. The town is finely situated on and between the slopes of the two extremities of the promontory of Monte Conero, Monte Astagno to the South, occupied by the citadel, and Monte Guasco to the North, on which the cathedral stands. The latter, dedicated to S. Ciriaco, is said to occupy the site of a temple of Venus, who is mentioned by Catullus and Juvenal as the tutelary deity of the place. After the fall of the Roman empire Ancona was successively attacked by the Goths, Lombards and Saracens, but recovered its strength and importance. It was one of the cities of the Pentapolis under the exarchate of Ravenna.
