Barcelona Civitavecchia Ferry reviews

  • "June 2015 sailed from Spain (Barcelona) to Italy (Civitavecchia) with Grimaldi Lines "

    Excellent 'mini cruise' Four berth cabin had plenty of room. Restaurants were very good with choice of self-service to a la carte. The service from the crew was excellent. The ship was very attractively furnished giving a feel of luxury. Very smooth sailing. This is the second time we have sailed with Grimaldi Lines and I would highly recommend them.

    The experience of traveling on the ferry from Barcelona to Civitavecchia (30/07/14) was bad, especially for the quality of the food amenities and food, and bad conditions of public areas. But, the experience of the return trip from Civitavecchia to Barcelona (16/08/14) was simply outrageous, my wife tried to make a complaint but there were not forms available. The ship looked like a refugee transport, with families sleeping on the floor in corners of the hallways, on all the sofas in the cafeteria and other common areas, crowded sleeping, on the terrace and common areas, totally inadequate for the entire passage, a unacceptable queues at the cafeteria. We had to leave the cabin two hours before without notice, because of the cleaning, there was no space to await the arrival to destination. On both occasions the ferry left one hour delay. Summarizing DISAPPOINTING experience by not giving a rude epithet.

  • "In Cabin"

    20 hours ferry crossing, which if you don't have a cabin booked (I did it and never do it again) the crossing is endless. In cabin, the crossing is good. The swimming pool was opened. Small cabins but enough. Expensive food. NEGATIVE ..... you get an hour and they make you left the cabin almost 3 hours before. I never do that again, because I paid the cabin for the whole the journey ... .....
