France reviews

  • "First Time"

    We normally use a ferry from Barcelona to Palma. Corsica Ferries was cheaper and took us closer to our final destination in Mallorca. Would definitely use this route again. Comparing catering between the two, Corsica Ferries wins hands down!

  • "An Unfair Decision "

    The journey itself was alright. The ferry is fast, and has a nice balcony at the back. Moreover, seats are very comfortable. However, we were at the port exactly one hour before. At some point it was good, because nowhere, not only on the ticket, is written where we should have been waiting. We had to ask at the ticket office, where they told us to go to the quay to Sardinia - which is, I consider, quite unexpected. But that’s not all. We waited there an hour. No ship. So we turned around and a man was directing other cars to a different ferry that went to Elba. Not only that we, the first passengers who successfully found the right quay, were informed at the last moment, and therefore couldn’t fit on the substitute ferry, we also hadn’t been told what was going on. We had to ask four times before someone finally gave us an explanation. At least we had an occupation for the one hour we had to wait for another ferry... Having said all that, bad things happen. However, I would appreciate if the company could inform their passengers properly, the communication is really poor.
