  • "Midnight sailing to corsica"

    We've always watched the distinctive yellow and blue Corsica ferries travel into port and so this year we extended our holiday by spending a few days in the south of France before catching the midnight ferry to Bastia. It was fun! The cabin was clean, comfortable and spacious and we slept well. The only drawback is that the cabins have to be vacated before dawn, in good time for the crew to prepare them for the next passengers, so it's a short night. We travelled as foot passengers, which meant that the cost, even including the cabin, was low. I would definitely do it again.

  • "pleasant journey"

    We really enjoyed this trip. It lasted 5 hours but there were a lot of facilities to have a pleasant stay. There was a swimming pool, plenty of deck-chairs, nice restaurant. It didn't feel crowded, however, the ship was full. Everything was as promised in the offer.

  • ""It does what it says on the box!""

    Mega Smeralda is a big ship, and we found ourselves parked on one of the lowest car decks - not the easiest to access for anyone with mobility difficulties. The facilities on board were very good, the cabin was spacious and comfortable, but we had difficulty hearing the PA announcements - until we discovered the discreet volume control! The crossing was comfortable, but there seemed to be quite a lot of vibration, which we thought strange given how high above the engine room we must have been. All-in-all, a good crossing with everything going smoothly and to time.

  • "Cruisy ride"

    To be honest I found a couch and slept most of the way over as I was buggered from the night before but to be honest it's what you'd expect from a cruise. Friendly staff, slightly overpriced food and not a whole heap to do :)

  • "A lovely trip to a lovely island"

    We use a lot of ferries, but this is quite the easiest. No fuss either end. The food is good and they provide a microwave if the pasta is not quite hot enough. Breakfast is good too, including fresh pressed orange juice. The cabins are spacious, and although you can't borrow a pillow from another bed, as with some 4 berth for two people you can, it was fine. All very professional.

  • "Ferry Trip"

    We traveled with Corsica/Sardinia Ferries from Nice to Bastia as foot passengers in August 2014. It was a most pleasant journey. Our bags were stored in the baggage room and so we were free to roam the ship. We took the sun up bu the pool and had dinner before we landed in Bastia. The staff were most helpful and friendly. I would recommend this company for travel to the islands.

  • "Well organised"

    Unlike our ferry crossing on the outward journey with MOBY Lines from Genoa to Bastia, the return trip with Corsica Ferries was well organized. Boarding went quite smoothly. The facilities on board, catering and customer service were very good. It was a very enjoyable trip. The next time we go to Corsica, we will definitely choose Corsica Ferries.

  • "Excellent crossing!"

    Our Corsica Ferries crossing which we booked through you went perfectly well. We would only like to comment about the information on the confirmation which stated that tickets had to be collected/activated at the port. This wasn't the case with us because it wasn't necessary. In both Savona and Bastia, the Corsica Ferries port agent activated the tickets for us, using the bar codes on out confirmation. May be the information on the confirmation should be corrected. We hope to make a new booking for our trip next year through your company. Best regards, Ruud Alberts

  • "ALMOST JUST AS SATISFIED AS THE LAST YEARS"

    We travel to Corsica with Corsica Ferries each year and for the past couple of years, we've been very pleased. This year we were immensely disturbed by sleeping passengers on the sofas in the restaurant is. You're too cosy reading something with a drink and next to you are people snoring on the couch. They bring their own drinks, lay barefoot under their sleeping bags and on the benches and don't care if something is said to them. Maybe next year we shouldn't book any cabins, we should just find a nice cosy couch in the restaurant. We will not be doing this but hope to stay Corsica Ferries customers.
