Tirrenia or SNAV from Naples to Palermo?

The fares are more or less the same. Which would you take and why?

Thanks in advance!

Not much difference at all.

If taking a reclining seat, the first class seats on the Florio/Rubattino/Bithia class ships are reportedly more comfortable than those on the SNAV ships.

If taking a sleeping cabin, there should be very little difference.

Here you will find a very comprehensive comparison of the ferries used by these competitors on the Naples/Palermo route:

I've taken both. I rented cabins and they were pretty much exactly the same.
