"Motorcycle trip to Sicily"
Biggest problem was finding the port in Livorno, as multiple roadworks defeated our SATNAV - very frustrating, but eventually followed a camper van who seemed to know where he was going!! Loading was quick and efficient, but "slot" allocated to m/cycles very narrow, and required backing out on arrival - not easy on a big tourer. The cabin was great and very comprehensive, the crossing smooth and the food excellent at a reasonable price. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Recommended crossing, but allow plenty of time to find the correct port!!

"Wonderful cruise to Sardinia "
We cruised between Livorno and Olbia for holidays. First time for us. Everything went smooth and easy : Quick and efficient onboarding and disembarking, relaxing cruise. We enjoyed especially the swimming pool and the cabin on our way back (night trip).

The journey was really good. The only bad thing was about the reserved seat, they are old and all ruin so that I preferred to stay on the deck.

"A lots of troubles"
No chances to get the boarding ticket and no indication on where to get it. Really long boarding times and underneath a really hot sun. The common area became a dormitory (even during the day) and all the seats where busy becouse of that.

I did not like only the milk at breakfast, the rest it's ok.

Our trip was comfortable and relaxing. The ship was old but the staff on board so nice and helpful. Really fast landing in Salerno.

I spent nice time on board with friendly and helpfull crew. The only bad thing in the seats area was the temperature , max 15° and it was July. No one of the customer slept there. We all rest on the couches at the bar. I recommend this company.

"Good, clean, friendly and helpful staff "
The ship departed quite a bit later and I have reflected this in my rating below. However, it made up time and we did arrive on time so I want to make that clear.

Excellent trip. The embarkation was slow and not very organised (I guess it depends on the port)

"Travel by ferry from Salerno to Palermo"
The boarding was very fast.We have travelled with the inside cabin. The ferry and the cabin was clean. The ferry arrived very punctual to Palermo. We have not used the restaurant or the bar. Nobody touched our car during the crossing. We can recommend that operator , the price was really good comparing with another crossings to Naples. The only problem was the labguage barrier but I guess in all Italy is the same. We are family of two adults and two children. July 2015

Punctuality. Cheap price. Kind staff. Cleaning and organization
Reviewed by Belhassen who travelled with Grimaldi Lines on Zeus Palace
I travel with Grimaldi 8-10 times a year especially with Zeus Palace ferry. Friendly staff, cabins always clean and tidy. It's a shame that it's full of people sleeping everywhere on the floor so you can't spend time at the bar. Food at the restaurant not the best one that you can have.

departure 2hours late. People everywhere. I booked and paid for my reserved seats for anything because everyone could sit there, no one controlled. Really bad experience, never again

"trip Palermo/tunisi and return"
old ship but good services. Great restaurant on board and deperture on time. Too many people with deck space on the outbound route, everyone was sleeping and eating on the floor. They should offer more seats.

"3 hours late and no informations"
I travelled with a 4 berth outside cabin for the route Salerno-Palermo on the 01/08/14. Bad organization at the check in and during the boarding because the port was very busy. The cabin was not very clean and the air conditioning too strong. Almost all the staff could speak only spanish and it doesn't make any sense for an italian route. We left the port at 2.30am on the 02/08 instead of 11pm of the day before and no one advised us. Tickets too expensive for this delay and this low service on board

"great way to go"
this is an excellent value and wonderful way to get to Sicily from Salerno. The trick is finding your way to the boarding area. I'd recommend a car service to take you. We booked a private room, which was clean and comfortable. This is a no frills cruise but since you leave at 11 pm and arrive at 9 am, it's a perfect way to get some sleep and travel between the two cities. Well worth it!

the ferry it's very good as well as the customer service, but it was a shame to mix the people with different tradition wih other passengers, because they occupyed 3 or 4 places and change themselves in front of everybody, due to this you can't completely enjoy this spaces.
