Sailed from Ancona to Igoumenitsa. Cabin tiny. Facilities otherwise good. The self service cafe served large portions, but expensive. Deck 11 has great views as you sail between the Greek Mainland and Corfu approaching Igoumenitsa. The trip takes 16 hours. We were 2.5 hours late...More

The most awful ferry that I ever experienced. The ferry-terminal near Rome was not announced. Confused staff. A dirty cabin ( damaged). Wrong food. An old, dirty and filthy boat. The staff didn’t talk English. The breakfast was expensive and not worth the money. Never...More
