    Arrived earlier than expected but NLG quite happy to take all six of us on the presvious crossing Naples to Capri. Same on the return route when we realised that our booked crossing was cutting it very fine for our cruise final boarding time, which we did have to hand at time of booking. Smooth jpournety both ways . Many thanks to NLG from all of us.

  • "Super and reliable "

    Professional service, competent staff, punctual and efficient.  Crowd control on the landing stages was a bit chaotic in this high season for tourism - but not NLG’s fault
