Occasionally I check www.directferries.co.uk/tangier_ferry.htm which shows there to be a ferry from Tanger to Barcelona three times each week with Grandi Navi Veloci.

Also there is Grimaldi Lines who have a sailing once per week.

In both cases the journey takes 25 hours as the distance is great. Perhaps you could consider flying or break up the journey by taking a coach and making several stops?

I was travelling by car and took the Grandi Navi Veloci ferry from Tanger Med to Barcelona last month. It left at around 6pm and arrived at about 8pm the next day.

I arrived three hours early and boarding took about an hour and a half. There are a couple of restaurants on board, a bar and a small shop. I'd recommend taking a book/s as there is nothing to do.

You can wander on the deck but when I went there were no chairs available.

Wifi is available for an additional charge.
