Barcelona Genoa Ferry reviews

  • "Recent trip to Barcelona"

    Unfortunately there was a problem when I paid for the trip and the ticket had only my name on it, so at Genova I had to change the ticket. As the terminal is being renovated I found it extremely difficult to get to the ticket office. Then there was a problem when we were about to get on board because we had apparently not checked in, but we had checked in and when I went yet again to another place to sort this out they told me we were chacked in and to go away. However, they did not want to let us onboard. In the end someone came and sorted it out over the telephone and we were allowed onboard. We have never had this problem before. It seemed like one person did not know what another one was doing. Once onboard everything was ok. It is unfortunate that if people have to pay for a sleeping seat, there are still people all over the various decks sleeping on the floor. This gives a very bad impression and does not make me feel safe.

  • "Very little customer information provided."

    No signs indicating where to go or what to at the Genoa terminal.. No indication as to when and how to board ship. No signs on board advising restaurant opening hours.. A general lack of customer information.

  • "Ship was OK, but disgusting food"

    The food at the self-service was gross, meat and fish baked dry, sauces with weird off-flavours. Coffee served in plastic cups. The cabin was decent. The bars felt stuffy.

  • "All well"

    No problems at all. Arrived, was given the key for my cabin, travelled to the destination and got off! The cabin was fine, although a couple of things not working (the in cabin radio control, but I don’t know if there was even anything to listen to!) or open (it’s January!). Otherwise all fine, friendly crew, clean ship. The food is expensive, so it’s worth getting the food vouchers as you end up paying a bit less

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.
