Ancona Split Ferry reviews

  • "Smooth trip .. No hassles, off peak "

    First time travelling from Ancona ( Italy) to Split ( croatia). OVerall the trip was smooth and much enjoyed. Especially as it catered for a over night travel which allowed me to sleep during. The Check In Process was a bit tricky in Ancona side, Some pre instructions for awareness would have been appreciated. Other than that, the trip went very smooth. Boarding the car and settling into cabin was smooth. The private ensuite shower with cabin was ridiculous as the toilet doubles as the shower cubicle which is just not practical when you can just about close the door to use the toilet. That said, nice to have a private toilet. The ship was bang on time for departure and arrival and disembarking was smooth also. Would use again and thank you for offering the travel option.
