Ancona Split Ferry reviews

  • "Better than expected "

    I’d read other reviews which weren’t great but we found the service to be excellent, a lovely way to arrive in a new country. We booked seats which although we didn’t use much, gave us somwhere to leave our luggage and was preferable to the situation in the bar with people lying on chairs meaning other passengers couldn’t sit down - very selfish. Food wasn’t great in the self service restaurant but you are allowed to take your own so if you can be bothered I’d advise you do this if you’re fussy. Overall would definitely use again.

  • "Too cold"

    We sailed from Ancona to Split last night (August 6). The trip was fine and arrived on time. However the entire ship was so cold (low 60s F) that it was impossible to sleep. This was a night trip. We were deck passengers and looked all over the ship for a warm spot with no luck. The cold was from excessive air conditioning.
