"lousy service, same trip never again "
The trip was beautiful along the coast of Sardinia. HOWEVER if you want to go to the bar, the restaurant or any shop you want to find out did the selection as well as the willingness service is very limited, as if there was no crisis. They could do a lot of business on board but just miserably miss any opportunity. So sad. On top: the cabin was not clean, the towels not Replaced and no toileteries. Same trip never again.

"never more "
Contrary to our previous experience, it was necessary with the online booking documents visit the office of the shipping company to get the tickets for the crossing, which led to confusion and loss of time. The service at the cabin allocation was miserable. All cabin passengers were at a reception, to which indeed were five crew members, but four of them were obviously just decoration during the booth opening cards spent. According to long were the waiting times. For other shipping companies this can be done differently. Our first-class cabins were inadequately cleaned. In addition, the decor was very worn and in need of renovation. There were no reasonable hand or bath towels available. We have found only three small dish towels with which showers was not possible. The toilet on the car was broken and could not satisfactorily be set repair despite our complaint. On deck, there was no sitting, although we left already at 14.00 clock in Arbatax and really wanted to enjoy the ride on the Sardinian coast on the deck with views of the island. All announcements were almost exclusively in Italian. Only the reference to the on-board restaurants successes in addition to incomprehensible English. Conclusion: We are just driven two times with this shipping company, namely the first and the last.

The small harbour of Arbatax is located in Sardinia in Italy. The town's centre is located at the bottom of Cape Bellavista which is an area rich in Mediterranean scrub and known for its red rocks and the porphyritic granite found near to the harbour. Surrounding the town are the highest mountains on the island which provide a breathtaking backdrop to the town. A popular attraction in the town is a 17th century tower adjacent to the harbour. Whilst out to see visitors are able to observe the silhouette of the famous porphyritic reef known as "red rocks' from Arbatax. Also popular with visitors is the S. Gemiliano Tower which is located on a point in the southern part of the headland around 3 km from the town.
Arbatax ferry port connects to the Italian mainland via the ferry ports of Civitavecchia, Genoa, Fiumicino, Olbia and Cagliari.
The port city of Genoa is located in the Liguria region of Italy and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Genoa's historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys that open up onto small squares and is where visitors can't fail to appreciate the history and culture that embodies the city. Architecturally there are many different styles sitting side by side with a medieval wall acting as a base for a 14th century building on Gothic loggias. Genoa really is a place where the past literally forms the foundations of the present.
The city's old port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, is a popular draw for tourists who go there to take in all the sites the old port area has to offer. A popular site located close to the pier is the city's lighthouse where lovely views of Genoa and its Gulf can be had.
Genoa's ferry terminal is located in the Calata Chiappella and ferries depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco. The terminal building has all of the usual passenger facilities and is also wheelchair friendly.
