"Algeciras to Cueta"
Excellent outward journey, which was on time despite the thick fog. Long delay on the return journey not sure why.

"Ferry Transmediterranea Acciona "
I took the ferry from Algeciras to Ceuta due to business. I did the journet in Club classand I must say that the facilities and staff treatment were excellent. However, I must say that none of the timetables were followed. To summarise, I must say that the journey in ferrry was great but you should calculate that extra time.

"A crossing between Algesiras and Ceuta"
I am very satisfied with this crossing. Moreover, the parking lot is covered and monitored is located 500m from the boarding area. It's very practical.

The ferry met fully our expectation. Rapid super low. The only drawback are the unwashed windows, so there is no beautiful images of the environment could be made

"Acciones Algericas-Ceuta ferry"
The purchase through DirectFerries.co.uk was easy and quick. We arrived @ Algericas terminal and parked in the multi-level parking (a 3 minute walk to the terminal. Total parking cost overnight was 14+ Euro. The Ferry was clean and comfortable, we were able to sit anywhere we preferred. The ferry left on-time and took approximately 1 hour to cross on smooth seas. The return trip on the next day was just as great. All terminal and ferry personnel were helpful and pleasant. remember to exchange your return voucher for a boarding pass on first floor prior to going upstairs to the gate. Overall a very pleasant experience.

"Cueta Algeciras Ferry"
A very clean, prompt and efficient ferry. But remember if coming from Morocco it takes time to cross the border and Cueta operates on Spanish time (CEST).

We booked a more luxurious cabin, “club version”. Very nice, very good food and good crew. And the visit in Africa was very good. Thank you and see you soon =)

Little confusion at the terminal going over from Algeciras, but we received excellent service from the staff and the ride over to Ceuta was very pleasant. My only complaint is that the windows of the ferry were salt encrusted and you couldn't see very well.

"Barcelona - Mallorca"
On the way there we had a ferry that had a spartan equipment and our cabin was not very clean. Also, the receptionist was rude or just overwhelmed, although not many travelers were on the ferry . The trip was great, a ferry was well equipped, our cabin was very clean and the staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Too bad that one has to leave his dog in a kennel on the upper deck. We didn't have a dog there, but we have felt really sorry for the animals.
