"modify the booking "
I was very satisfied, the only trick has been that I saw an offer to take my vehicle but it was implying an operation of cancelling and returning to acquire other tickets very complicated that made me desist. I would like that this operation will be simplified

"review of ferry "
Unfortunately, the cabins were not really clean. On the way we had chip remains in the beds and on the floor. The toilet was, unfortunately, not really clean. On the return trip we had to the extent legally clean beds, but several foreign hairs were on the shower floor and also the toilet was not cleaned completely. Super are embarking or disembarking from the ferry.

"Value for money "
I would have appreciated a lounge similar to the Neptuno in Balearia, where the seats were big and comfy. I was ready to pay more to be in a more comfortable seat. It is not a secret that the seats are old, uncomfortable and look more like an old cinema. The rest is well-organised. For what I paid, you can't really ask for more.

"Outward journey zurbaran, Return by Sorolla "
The cabins are unfortunately sometimes extremely dirty. Dirt in the showers, especially on the Sorolla, a lot of dirt in the bed boxes. Coffee is served in paper cups unfortunately only. very positive for me as severely disabled is the helpfulness of the staff on the car deck.

"Pleasant Crossing "
Overall pleasant crossing (6 hours). Although the ship was not punctually, but with about 45 minutes late, but it arrived on time. The ladies toilet near the bottom salons morning was very dirty, but was soon cleaned. On the sun deck more chairs / sun loungers may be present.

Even though the ship is not the best one I have been in because there was not a lot of space on the deck for the length of the journey, I have to say it was impecable and the attention to detail of the the staff was outstanding. I was travelling with a disabled and an elderly person and they looked after us and made sure we were comfortable at all times.

"All perfect except the low temepraturas"
The whole trip has been very good except for low temperatures at night. We reserve a seat (the cheapest), but at night it was so cold We could hardly sleep. The ship was in perfect condition.

"Boat in good condition"
Satisfied! Online booking with Direct Ferries was easy and efficient. Left and arrived on time. Proper comfort on a well maintained boat and in good condition. NB: You have to go to the counter of the company just before the start to show their reservation and get tickets passage present at the entrance to the boat.

"Ferry Acciona from Valencia to Palma"
For a long journey like this one (specially if travelling during the night), I highly recommend booking a cabin if you can afford it. I booked only 2 days before the departure so I had to go for the reserved Seat but it’s hard to sleep on it during the night, almost impossible I would say! It was so cold during the crossing as well, which made it even more difficult to sleep well.

"Ship well - border into Morocco crap "
For those who just want to go to Melilla - "good". But the ship to Malaga is even better. However, those who wish to enter Marocco, should directly take the ferry to Nador, because crossing the border has gotten worse than it has been a few years ago.
