"Excellent experience with Tirrenia Civitavecchia-Olbia"
We were in four with a cabin and car on the route Civitavecchia-Olbia-Civitavecchia. Excellent service. Kind staff, good value for money at the restaurant on board.

Tirrenia Bithia is a very comfortable ship, the cabin it was first class for real, big and clean. There are not so many bar/restaurant/self service, but it was fine. Really good breakfast at the restaurant. The restaurant, the seats and all the enviroments are really fancy.

Good welcoming and staff, food should be improved and served hot.

The ship was ship shape, on time, the cabins compact/clean and comfortable. BUT the boarding process in Civitavecchia utterly chaotic. Poor signage, only one luggage scanner and not enough staffing. Better in Cagliari but still long lines to check in. The sit down restaurant was a real disappointment. They did not have half of the items on the menu and and did not provide the proseco as the menu advertised for the fixed price diner. My advice "self cater" unless you are a snack bar fan.

"Ferry crossing Genoa to Olbia"
just to let you know we loved our trip on the 'Bithia'. The cabin was very comfortable. All staff were very helpful and polite. We hope to visit Italy in the future and take another trip on one of your ferries. Katharina Thomas and Stephen Smith GB.

"every thing went smooth as silk."
We took the ferry from cittivecchia to oblia sardenia and all went well as it could. the boat was available for boarding quite early so we could settle in. The directferries web site made booking the trip very easy. the only small drawback was that when you pulled up the options for the trip you wish the options to other destinations also pop up. in other words if you want to go to oblia, the trips to cagliari pop up in line at the bottem of the page. if not careful you might book a trip to the wrong destination. there is not demarcation between the two destinations. but all in all direct ferrys worked great and i will use them again

"Direct Ferries YES - Tirrenia NO"
so, I'm ging to Sardinia every month for work. I have nothing to say about Direct Ferries because the service is always the best. But Tirrenia, €730 for 2adults, 1 child with cabin and a car, return ticket, I think is very expensive.
