"Boarding and deboarding chaos- Once is enough!"
The ferry ride was terrific- getting on and off the boat was horrible. First, it was chaos in getting my ticket at the ticket counter. Hundreds of people waiting in a small crowded waiting room trying to figure out which ticket window would open up. Once they did, there was no clarity on which ones and if others would open. It was a crazy scene. Next, boarding the boat- line ups in 36 degree sunshine without clarity on when the boarding would take place. Finally, deborading no clarity or communications on which exits to take and then as we got off at the same time while cars were coming off. Lucky, we didn't get run over. Lucky for my wife and I we won't need to take this ferry ride again. Howard and Christy Green Toronto, Canada

"A pleasant cruise across the Adriatic "
Overall the experience was very good. The checking in process could be greatly improved.Hundreds of people were milling noisily around and sometimes inconsiderately, and only one check in window was open. The staff member was under great pressure but handled it well. Stood in check in queue for an hour.
