  • "Short cut to Sicily"

    Our voyage on Splendid was a very pleasant experience and we would recommend this as an effective way of avoiding the long motorway journey South from Rome. Boarding was easy, just keep your eye on the signage as it is a busy quayside. On board the cabin was reasonably spacious. We used the restaurant in the evening, food was good. Our crossing (early May) was very quiet. Breakfast at self-service limited but met our needs. We would use this route again.

  • "Recommend it"

    We travelled on reserved seats, long journey but we were comfortable and without not too many problems. But I will keep open at least 1 of the cafè shops during the night, instead they all closed at night and open again in the morning at 6.30.

  • "GNV's ships ok, Direct Ferries's booking service ko!"

    Nothing to say about the transport service but it was disappointed.. About Direct Ferries instead gives you no service from the call centre. I booked a ticket for 3 persons + car Civitavecchia-Palermo with return (14/08-23/08). After we booked we realized that the return was on the 28/08. After so many times trying to contact the Customer Care by phone(payment call) by email, they let me change the date but they made me pay again. At the end, fortunately, I've got the refund. Next time for sure no more Direct Ferries. And to be honest I do not recommend it.

  • "Good but not really good"

    Perfect journey... But the first to arrive is also the last one to landing, we waited an hour, instead the latecomers who don't care to take your advice to be in time can land before us.

    Journey Palermo-Civitavecchia nice and quiet, but my cabin was occupied at the beginnig and I hat to wait to have another one. You should prevent this kind of things, cabins should be locked, in order to do not let anyone to enter in some's cabin. Excellent cleaning, helpful staff and punctuality.
