We'll be coming from Sicily to the Amalfi Coast, starting with Paestum and traveling back west. Apparently there are two ways to do this -- fly to Naples and backtrack over land or sea, or take a l-o-n-g overnight ferry trip (13 hours or so). I'm inclined to fly -- at least I'd be doing that during the day and could have an atmospheric dinner out and sleep in a good hotel.
But I should probably ask the question, anyway, what are these overnight ferry trips like? Can you get a cabin and a bed, similar to a train sleeper car, or is it more like plane travel, with rows of seats? Are the seats reserved? I've looked at numerous ferry company websites but in addition to being confused by the way they set up their sailing tables, I can't find any references (in English, anyway) to their facilities and amenities.
Appreciate hearing from someone who's done a long ferry trip. Thank you.
