The Cruise Roma and her sister ship the Cruise Barcelona are a totally new concept of ferry featuring the sort of facilities normally only found onboard a cruise ship. Apart from a huge choice of onboard cabin accommodation, there’s also a choice of restaurants and bars, a swimming pool, casino, wellness centre, videogames corner, dedicated children’s playroom and a Boutique.
The Cruise Roma features 411 air conditioned en-suite cabins with a choice of inside and sea view (outside) and around 70 luxurious suites. For those who’d prefer not to book a cabin the Cruise Roma also has around 150 reclining seats.
Onboard the Cruise Roma ferry there is no shortage of places to eat and drink. Choose from a wonderful menu in the à la carte Restaurant or help yourself in the self-service cafeteria. For a quick bite to eat 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 Cruise Roma contains a boutique which sells many high street brands as well as magazines, confectionary and travel essentials.
The Cruise Roman also features a Swimming pool with sundeck, a Casino with black jack and roulette tables, 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 with Grimaldi Lines and the Cruise Roma features a dedicated child’s play area to keep younger passengers occupied during the trip. There’s also a video games corner for the older children.

"Noisy but comfortable"
Great journey and facilities, but noisy. Quality of announcements was poor. Lots of teenagers on board and lots of announcements calling for tutors to attend reception, suggest if you have that many teenagers on board you need separate radios.

"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.

"Lovely friendly staff"
What stuck out to me about this whole journey was the friendly, warm and incredibly helpful staff who helped me with every need and who I have lovely conversations with throughout journey. As a solo traveller I felt very well cared for.

I really enjoyed my trip, the ship was clean, my cabin was very good (outside) and I found the staff friendly and food was fine. I would definetly use them again. There is no comparison between this crossing and the one I took last year from Genoa with another company. Grimaldi were miles ahead of them in terms of cleanliness and general service standards.

"Very nice ferry ride"
I really liked the ride from Barcelona to Civitacchi. The ferry was nice in good condition and had a lot of amenities. I even scheduled a message at the wellness center that was very relaxing. I didn't know to get to the boat early (wish my confirmations would have let me know the expected time to arrive to get on the boat) but at two hous prior I was on the boat but one of the last to arrive. Room was great clean shower food was good with a good amount of choices. Ferry is a great way to travel mad would definitely do this one again.

There was no journey, I wanted to change date to the weeks after but they refused to change it and they kept €200. Congrats to Grimaldi Lines. Unfortunatley for Barcellona there is only this company.

"shame for the poor organization"
Hello! Journey was nice, comfortable and clean ship! But I have to say two things: 1)Food is really poor and shabby...... 2) I would like to understand why on the booking website looks like the cabin is compulsory, and when you arrive on board you can acctualy stay everywhere in the common are, like on couches, seats, deck... air maittress... I COULD ADVICE THIS COMPANY TO A FRIEND BUT SAYING HIM: 1) DO NOT eat at the restaurant 2)DO NOT book a cabin. I hope I will received an answer about the ACCOMODATION... Thanks

"Trip without any problem"
On the outbound journey, at the port in Civitavecchia, I received the right assistance. The trip was quiet, i had a seat reserved and I managed to sleep quite well. However, i would recommend to bring a blanket or wear something warm as the air conditioning is too high. The return trip was the same as the outbound. The ferry was on time and the embark/disembark procedures very organised. I would recommend the route Civitavecchia-Barcellona, I spent h20 enjoying myself on the outside deck with swimming pool, indoor areas and restaurants.

"I'd take this ferry again"
The trip was more expensive than we had expected. The onboard food was acceptable. Beer was expensive. The room and bathroom were clean and adequate. Noise wasn't an issue. The staff was helpful. Be sure to bring good books or games.
