  • "All well"

    No problems at all. Arrived, was given the key for my cabin, travelled to the destination and got off! The cabin was fine, although a couple of things not working (the in cabin radio control, but I don’t know if there was even anything to listen to!) or open (it’s January!). Otherwise all fine, friendly crew, clean ship. The food is expensive, so it’s worth getting the food vouchers as you end up paying a bit less

Palermo Guide

The Italian city of Palermo is located in the north west of Sicily, by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city has a reputation across the world for its history, gastronomy, culture and architecture with a its origins dating back over 2,700 years. Many visitors flock to the city and it has become Sicily's main hub for culture, commerce and tourism. The city's centre has many examples of fine palaces and churches which give way to areas whose way of life doesn't seem to have changed for centuries. This is perhaps most evident in the markets in Palermo, whose Arabic origins can still be seen today thanks to the noise, aromas, colours, narrow streets and with the excellent array of produce on offer and the general 'souk's atmosphere.

From the city's port, ferry services operate to destinations include Genoa, with a crossing time of 21 hours, Civitavecchia, 14 hour crossing time, Naples, 10 hours and 30 minutes, and Tunisia, 10 hours. It is recommended that foot passengers check in 1 hour prior to departure and vehicles 2 hours prior to departure. For all departures to Tunisia check in should be 4 hours prior to departure.


Tunis Guide

The city of Tunis is the capital of Tunisia and is located in the north of the country, close to Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. The city has a lovely mix of architectural styles, wide roads and narrow alleyways which capture the spirit of the southern and northern Mediterranean. The stone walls of the city's 9th century Medina no longer exist, but its narrow streets, souks, mosques and other historic buildings still do exist and have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, in stark contrast to the old town, the Ville Nouvelle (New Town) is orderly and has a colonial elegance that was built by the French. In the centre of the city there are now some lovely buildings including an art nouveau theatre, Franco-Arabic market buildings and a cathedral built in a Roman Byzantine style. A popular pastime, especially to escape the heat of the midday sun, is to relax on a seat in the shady terrace of the Belvedere Park Cafe terrace. Alternatively one of the city's museums, such as the Dar Ben Abdallah or the Musee National du Bardo, are great places to visit at all times but perhaps especially so when it is particularly hot.
