"A crossing between Ancona and Durres"
We are used to make the crossing between Sete and Tanger Med aboard a larger and better equiped ferry: -the AC wasn't working properly -the only restaurant which was open was too small and the food was canteen quality -there was only one lounge and it had been turned into a dormitory by passengers -our campervan was stuck between the trucks and it took us some time to disembark -I'll recommend this ferry, but with some warnings

According to schedule, the ferry should start on Saturday at 19h Then we received a mail that the ship should already start at 12h on the same day This meant for us that we had to start on Friday from home -.. Which cost us an additional . Hotel night then we arrived on Saturday morning to check-in at 9:30, since no one was at the desk of the ferry company and on the exit plan was at once. 15h Departure As to 10h then the switch was busy, we were informed that one would be happy if the ship against 18:30 einliefe and then you could start to 22h. So we spent a totally useless day in Ancona waiting and money spending. when we eventually were allowed at night on the ship AF Michela, there was one there giant mess in the car-briefing and at the reception. My wife was lost, I had to only look everywhere on the ship, because she was encouraged to leave the car. then they took our passport with the justification, to keep the pass as a pledge for the return of the cabin key. One had the impression that the staff had little knowledge of foreign languages, including Italian! Good thing was was that we worth a total of 2 times to change the cabin was allowed, but the cabins initially offered were not acceptable. This ferry I'll never go back!

The catering was horrible on both crossings. The food was tasteless et of poor quality. You'd better bring your own meal. The reception on board is not great. We arrived safe and sound, which is the most important, although both times with a delay. There is no need to be 3 hours before boarding as mentionned on the tickets.
