NLG Customer Reviews

  • "Capri to napoli"

    Nice trip across from Capri to Napoli. Ferry was not crowded due to timing of traveling in the morning.

  • "Helpful NLG staff Naples "

    My wife and I were booked on the 14.40hrs fast ferry to Capri however we made good time arriving in Naples earlier than anticipated. I went to the NLG office where I spoke with two members of staff who spoke good English. They changed my booking for me getting us onto an earlier ferry, it was honestly easier than I thought it was going to be. The actual ferry was busy but there were enough seats to cope. I would recommend NLG to friends if they come to Naples or Sorrento.

  • "Trip to Capri"

    You need to get your printed reservation exchanged for tickets in the office area right beside where you board..staff are good and organised both at dock side and aboard..I thought we had booked a direct ferry to Capri...but it did stop in Amalfi..and positano before hand..left on time 8.20hrs..arriving in Capri at 10.20hrs..Have a plan when you disembark as it's very hectic!!!
