"Palermo - Genoa GNV"
We were avoiding flying for environmental reasons so travelled by bus, train and ferry instead. We had an excellent trip with GNV. Efficient service and helpful staff. Very comfortable 4 berth cabin to ourselves - there were 2 of us. Very clean, good shower. The food was very reasonably priced and adequate. Very punctual. I would definitely travel with them again, and on other ferries.

"Traversée très agréable"
Cabines spacieuses, bien équipées, fonctionnelles. Beaucoup d'espace pour se promener. Décor un peu clinquant. Service au bar à café peu efficace.
Reviewed by Jacques who travelled with Grandi Navi Veloci on La Superba
We booked Pullman seats but upgraded to a cabin when onboard which made the journey really enjoyable. Helpful, friendly staff. Disappointed the pool was not in use as it was a beautiful day. The only downside was the early exit from the cabin, two hours before we docked and the chaos of the wait to access the car, could easily be rectified, this was a common experience not just a Brit gripe. Enjoyed the trip however.

"Genoa Palermo and riturn"
Genoa-Palermo in board the La Superba it was not the best journey, all approximeted, poor self-service quality. The return with Majestic was so much better, good cleaning, especially inside the cabin, helpfull staff, it was like a mini cruise with a really resanable price.

"Good cabin, no issues apart from wifi"
Wifi should be much cheaper to buy, or made free altogether, especially after paying for a cabin with wifi already in place and reachable/available. a Strong minus regarding this. Otherwise very satisfied with the service.

By far the most; Comfortable, safest, relaxed and best value for money to drive to Sicily from the UK, Grandi Navi Veloci on the la Superba, twicw now I have used this service and twice now it has proved to be a mini cruise on an excellently equiped ship. I would always recommend this method of travel.

Reviewed by Maurizio who travelled with Grandi Navi Veloci on La Superba
Having used this ferry route previously, I knew what to expect, and as usual it was clean, on time, and the trip was a pleasant one. I only had one annoying moment, and on the route from Palermo to Genoa, we had a good meal, well presented in the a la carte restaurant, unfortunately on requesting a coffee, and a liquer, the coffee arrived cold. We informed the waiter who told us he thought it may be as the machine had been broken since the day before. Instead of apologising, and making a coffee in the kitchen, getting one from the bar, or just heating it up in the microwave, which was situated next to the defunct coffee machine, we were told there was no coffee available. On paying our bill, I thought that in lieu of a coffee, that the liquer would have been offered free by way of compensation. No, it was not, and both waiters were by now being rude. A senior member of staff arrived, and took us through to the bar, and sorted out a complimentary coffee, at the same time as agreeing with us that the matter could and should have been handled better. I will use the ferry again, but if the same staff are in the a la carte restaurant, I shall not be utilising it. The remainder of the staff were helpful and pleasant through out both trips.

"Arrived early, but long, long wait to disembark"
The Palermo-Genoa service is generally a good one -- the cabins are clean, if a little old-fashioned, the restaurant food is OK and the staff are polite. However, I do think that the disembarcation procedures need looking at. We were asked to leave our cabin at 5.30 for a projected 7.00pm arrival (2 hours early due to very calm seas)and then had to sit in a very crowded bar until 7.30, eventually getting off the boat at about 8.00pm. It does not seem very efficient, but perhaps that is due to the multiple vehicle decks.

The last year they treated very bed, infact I said I will never travel with GNV anymore. But this year I use it again and it was all very clean and tidy, comfortable seats and all was ok apart from the service at the bar, they did not how to make a coffee.

"Only one complaint"
I found everything fine and convenient. However, long before disembarking,thhe toilets werde closed. In addition to my own dismay, I observed several agitated and unpleasant quarrels beween needy travellers and cleaning personell, but mostly desperate people in search of someone who could help them. There should be clear announcements about the availablility of WC facilities.
