Corsica Linea is the new brand name of Maritima Ferries, who acquired SNCM ships in 2016, and are focused on providing the best service to the French Mediterranean island of Corsica.
Corsica Linea embodies a new change of shareholders. In January 2016, Patrick Rocca was chosen as the new buyer under his subsidiary company, MCM. However, after months of legal controversy, a consortium of 15 shareholders under Corsica Maritima group took control of the company and decided to use a new name and different colours.
Corsica Linea’s red vessels provide year-round services from Marseille, the main trading port in France. They also offer regular crossings to the Corsican ports of Ajaccio, Propriano, Bastia and Ile Rousse, as well as direct connections to the seaside resort of Porto-Vecchio.
Your holiday starts the moment you step on-board Corsica Linea cruise ships. The vessels are well equipped with a range of cabins and their cruise ferry, ‘Danielle Casanova’ can transport up to 2200 passengers and 700 vehicles. The Jean Nicoli vessel was the first redesigned ship under Corsica Linea colours and their logo also shows a Moor's head, the symbol of the Corsican flag.

"British travel to Corsica via Marsielle"
The first thing you need to know is that the departure port is tiny. Unlike some British ports which have cafes, bars and some shopping. Marsielle port consists of 2 vending machines, toilets and the check in desk. That’s it. The port is located about 5 mins walk to the left of Terraces du Port . Our cab driver to us to the totally wrong place and we’re faced with a 30 minute walk so watch out for that. Boarding starts about 2 hours before departure, so lots of time to have a drink. You get on a bus this drops you off at the door where cars enter the ferry, watch out for lorries and cars. On board the bar, restaurant and food kiosk on one deck. There was only one veggie option in the restaurant and this contained an allergen of wild mushrooms. The pizzas from the kiosk are amazing and take 2 mins to cook. If it’s a busy crossing queue goes quiet after 9. But it’s a half hour queue before then. Wine is great . Toilets are clean. Few staff speak EnglishRead More Read Less
"Journey from Marseille to Ile Rousse "
Everything was ok. But it would be good to explain how to go to the ferry. Marseille is huge. And Google Maps didn't work so well. I didn't know I had to go to Gate 1. A small map would have helped a lot.Read More Read Less
"A civilized and comfortable crossing"
Checking in at the Gare Maritime Joliette in Marseille was easy - once it was open for foot passengers On board the cabin we were provided with was spacious, clean and comfortable, and easy to access as passengers with large sized luggage via the elevators A very pleasant cafe style bar with a jazz solo to add atmosphere made the time either side of dinner a civilized experience The restaurant menu had choice and the standard of the meals we selected was very competent given this was a ferry class ship The early morning time of arrival at Ajaccio meant that breakfast was busy...in my experience this is often the case on ferries Willingly use againRead More Read Less
Everything was perfectly fine, members of staff were friendly and the cabin was clean.Read More Read Less
