We really appreciated this inbound ferry crossing from Corsica. The weather was nice and there was a couple of dolphins. The staff, the atmosphere and the confort on board were perfect.

"Calvi - Nice Crossing"
A very bad organisation for the loading of the cars aboard the ferry . And after disembarking, you are not allowed to park for a few minutes to wait for you pary. We got lost, although there would have been space to park.

"Calvi to Nice with Corsica Sardinia Ferries"
For a 5.5 hour ferry, it was relaxing and since the sun was out and the weather great we didn't need a cabin, Spent the whole of the trip on the deck near the small pool and back bar. It's very load and they play euro dance music louder than necessary but if you can bare it it's a nice deck. There was not anything special about the bathrooms or catering. I would suggest one gets on early though to snag a chair or lounge seat of they are trying to sit outside, they get reserved pretty quickly.
