  • "Easy access to the Amalfi coast"

    I booked tickets for ferries to get from Naples to Positano (changing ferry at Sorrento). I was a little apprehensive after reading bad reviews but had already purchased tickets The tickets were easy to book online. My friend and I had a good experience using this company - the staff were friendly and helpful. We were not aware we had to pay for baggage once we boarded but it was €2 per bag - we didn’t have to pay on the last leg of the trip, we kept our bags with us. I managed to use my email confirmation/tickets to board all but one ferry, where we were told to go to the desk and ask them to print the tickets - they pushed us to the front of the queue. One ferry was delayed by 15 minutes but the ferry times are far apart enough that we still had about 45 mins before boarding our next one. It can be a little confusing knowing which pier to go to - we were told pier 5 but it was actually pier 7. I think things change at the last minute, so I would recommend double checking and keeping your eyes open. All in all, a good and easy experience

  • "Sorrento Ferry "

    The ferry was great. The only problem is that the organisation at the terminal is poor. There is a big departure board showing each departure gate etc, but it never worked, so travellers were left to guess, with no information, and we nearly missed our pre-booked crossing
