The Cruise Barcelona and her sister ship the Cruise Roma are a totally new concept of ferry offering facilities normally only found onboard a luxurious cruise ship. There’s a huge selection of cabin accommodation, a choice of restaurants and bars, a swimming pool, casino, wellness centre, videogames area, children’s playroom and a Boutique.
The Cruise Barcelona ferry features 411 air conditioned en-suite cabins with a choice of inside and sea view (outside) and around 70 luxurious suites. If you’d prefer not to book a cabin then there’s a choice of around 150 reclining seats.
The Cruise Barcelona has no shortage of places to eat and drink. Choose from the wonderful menu in the à la carte restaurant or help yourself in the buffet style self-service cafeteria. For a quick snack there’s also a fast food lounge. Drinks are served in Smaila’s bar or for same late evening entertainment head to the night club. During the summer months you can also have a drink in the swimming pool bar.
The ship contains a boutique which sells many high street brands as well as magazines, confectionary and travel essentials.
In addition, you’ll find a Swimming pool with sundeck, a Casino with black jack and roulette tables and a wellness centre featuring a sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, relaxation area, massage halls, beauty treatments, solarium and a gymnasium. If you want to surf while you sail then head over to the internet cafe.
Children are well catered for onboard the Cruise Barcelona which features a dedicated child’s play area to keep them occupied during the trip. There’s also a video games corner for the older children.

"smooth as silk"
Great boat but very very cold lounge and recliner seat area Is this to punish travelers who choose not to have a cabin? As i say lovely boat/ship Would defiantly choose this shipping company again if the need arises Many thanks

"Really great option for travel between Spain and Sardinia "
We really enjoyed taking this route between Barcelona and Sardinia. We travelled as foot passengers and had a cabin which was clean and nicely equipped for an overnight journey. Boarding was easy and quick, the boat left (and arrived) a little late but that didn't really affect us at all. The only thing it would have been nice to know in advance that nobody told us was that we would be made to leave our cabin 2 hours before arrival, luckily we were up and ready to go but it would have been a nasty surprise if not! We barely used catering or other seating facilities but they seemed perfectly adequate. Staff were few and far between and not particularly friendly, but they did their jobs as you would expect and we encountered no problems.

The booking and boarding process was very smooth, once on board we decided to upgrade to a cabin, no problem, good ambience and service on board and disembarking all done well. A good experience.

"Grimaldi Ferries between Barcelona and Civitavecchia"
We use these Ferries, Cruise Barcelona and Cruise Roma, because they are very convenient in cutting out long drives on motorways and because our destination is in a little village about 60 miles north of Rome. The cabins are comfortable, the food is improving, but we spend most of the time reading and we mostly eat food we have brought with us.

The cabin was fantastic, we had a great crossing.

Pleasant, first-time crossing. Overall, I would recommend this ferry trip to friends and acquaintances. The cabin was too warm, though. Everything else was quite good.

"Enjoyable journey "
I travelled between Barcelona and Rome at the end of January. The crossing was very smooth. As it was a Thursday the ferry was virtually empty but the advantage of this was I had a 4 bed cabin to myself. The beds were comfortable and the shower good. The food at the self service restaurant was good value. It's just a shame you have to pay for wifi and you can't get it in the cabins.

"Not bad for the price "
Can't really complain except the cabin on deck 7 was quite noisy. Business breakfast option not worth the money but the business Linch made up for it. Had a good meal in the evening restaurant but perhaps a little expensive. Check in and loading very good but knowing the procedure for getting your ticket and finding the ship could be made easier with better signage or advance advice. Staff very helpful. All in all I would say good value for money.

"What a Pleasure"
My wife and I took this trip and were extremely pleased Nothing to fault. We would do it again in an instant. Better than we anticipated. What a way to relax and unwind from the maddening crowd while on tour.

"Pleasant trip, comfortable cabin"
I had a lovely trip with my motorcycle on the Grimaldi Lines ship to Barcelona from Civitavecchia. The cabin was comfortable, nice warm shower, cosy bed, and thank goodness I could turn off the air conditioning when it got too cold! The staff were friendly in the bars and cafe areas and there was generally a great atmosphere on board. Thank you Grimaldi Lines!

Journey on board of the Barcellona Cruise , good level, good quality of the service, huge competence of the staff, good clenaing and good restaurants and food. The only flaw was the landing at Civitavecchia where there was so a mass people waiting to get off the ship.
