Barcelona Genoa Ferry reviews

  • "Service review"

    Boarding procedure really good. A bit old ship but with clean and comfortable cabins and toilets. Young, helpful and frendly staff. Expensive price to eat on board. Quite positive experience. Improving the point I indicated could be perfect. No instructions given about emergency situations.....

  • "Good service, a time saver."

    I just sailed with a Pullman seat, a little noisy but not too crowded and I was able to get a decent nights sleep. We arrived early and all went well.

  • "We liked it."

    We were foot passengers (two people). Boarding in Barcelona was organized and on time. We got the room key easily and found the room (3 person cabin). Room including toilet/shower was clean. Plenty big for 2 people (we've stayed in smaller rooms in London!). We carried on our own food, so we did not eat except we had a cappucino in the morning of arrival. The boat in general was ok. Some of the facilities like the pool and different entertainment rooms were closed and not very clean. But we did not care much. Arrival was slightly earlier than scheduled and again was organized in a similar manner as the boarding in Barcelona so it was not a total chaos. The only really annoying thing was that they make you wake up at 6am and sit around the lounges for more than 1 hour before arrival.

Barcelona Guide

The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.

Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.

Genoa Guide

The port city of Genoa is located in the Liguria region of Italy and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Genoa's historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys that open up onto small squares and is where visitors can't fail to appreciate the history and culture that embodies the city. Architecturally there are many different styles sitting side by side with a medieval wall acting as a base for a 14th century building on Gothic loggias. Genoa really is a place where the past literally forms the foundations of the present.

The city's old port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, is a popular draw for tourists who go there to take in all the sites the old port area has to offer. A popular site located close to the pier is the city's lighthouse where lovely views of Genoa and its Gulf can be had.

Genoa's ferry terminal is located in the Calata Chiappella and ferries depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco. The terminal building has all of the usual passenger facilities and is also wheelchair friendly.
