Croatia reviews

  • "Ancona Split return journey"

    Good management. Staff of great ability, always ready to help. The ferry is not brand new but apart from that no complaints.

  • "Very satisfied"

    I have to admit that I’d read some really bad comments on the website about this ferry. I was surprised to see that the ferry was actually clean, the crew so nice and the restaurant quite good. I highly recommend it.
