  • "Good Old Baby"

    Moby Baby is not a baby anymore, some 45 years has gone since she was the most advanced scandinavian ferry. But her exterior design remains and she is a very elegant little ship with very good outdoor deck space and plenty of viewpoints. The interior design has been modified many times, and those big changes made in her Sealink time is still visible, even some few original interior details blend well with the modern Moby interior design concept. Original Jacaranda teak wall coverings are gone, just as the elegant swedish interior design - but the coffee is good and Moby Baby keeps on going - transformed from exclusive long distance night ferry of the sixties to a modern commuter ferry. If you like ferries, go and experience this old baby!

  • "Excellent ferry - great ferry company!"

    I’m a 51 years old originally from Sardinia but I grew up in Dorno (Pavia). It is almost half a century I travel by ferries, I tried all of them, including Moby Aki and in my opinion MOBY is more competitive both on land and on board. Many compliments and thanks for the service you offer!

  • "Great ship"

    Beautiful trip to Barcelona in wonderful ship! I’m not used to taking a ferry over a long long duration because I normally suffer from sea sickness but after this experience I have changed my mind. The lounges are big, well-kept and clean and I didn’t have the impression of being on the sea but in a hotel. My boyfriend and I were very pleased!

  • "Good trip"

    Great cabins, kitchen not so great (the only negative point I found), staff is very willing to help and give information, entertainment is good and there is a nice atmosphere in the Piano Bar.
