  • "a great atmosphere"

    The boat was clean and the staff is always trying to please the clients. The only thing lacking in our cabin was the flat sheet and the towels, but we were given some when we asked for them. The atmosphere on board was good. See you soon.

  • "Regular or irregular service"

    A delay of more than 2 hours, because of volontary late comers, who come at the end of boarding to be the first people to exit the boat. The company was very laxist with those individuals. Why? Bribing? The service at the bar wasn't adapted. No special care or service for people in luxury cabin.

Durres Guide

Located on the Albanian coast, Durres is a city that is around 33 km to the west of the Albanian capital, Tirana. It is Albania's second largest city, its main port and is one of the most ancient and economically significant in the country. Lying on the coast at one of the narrowest points in the Adriatic Sea, the Italian port of Bari is around 300 km away and Brindisi is 200 km away.

Popular attractions in the city include its main library, its cultural centre with the Aleksander Moisiu Theatre, the Estrada Theatre, the puppet theatre and the philharmonic orchestra. For visitors who enjoy a bit of history, there are a number of museums in the city including the Durres Archaeological Museum, the Royal Villa of Durres and the Museum of History.

The city is also home to the Durres Ancient City Wall, Durres Cathedral and the largest amphitheatre in the Balkans which is located close to the harbour. This first-century construction is currently under consideration for being declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Ferry destinations available from the port include Bari, Ancona, Trieste and Brindisi.


Ancona Guide

The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years thanks to its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.

Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
