"Terrible management of embarkation and disembarkation"
The services and quality of the cabin as well as the crossing, were to our liking. However, we are very impressed with the mismanagement during boarding and disembarkation. To boarding in Genoa we were waiting two hours before, because they had to position the vehicles whose final destination was Tangiers (the second stop), since we and along with dozens of other vehicles ended our crossing in Barcelona (the first stop). It would be more reasonable to make two boarding calls: first for vehicles destined to Tangier, and then to Barcelona. Similarly, on disembarkation we had to leave the cabin at 12:00 and made us wait in a small space on the 6th floor for two hours until we could finally leave at 14: 00h. We were traveling with small children and the heat was unbearable. We should have been located in a better conditioned area.

"Lack of cleanliness"
Overall the ship was in good condition but just dirty. The cabin had clean sheets and pillows, but the bedspreads and the bathroom was not totally clean. While the passengers did not care too much the facilities nor the boat staff did anything about it. Staff generally were not totally friendly, rather unpleasant, with the Maghreb passenger

"Plesant travel adnd well organized"
We ravelled from genoa to Barcelona on the ferry that later went to Tanger, it was the bigger boat i have travelled with, was well organized despite the large number of vehicle and passengers on board , above all maroccan families . The cabins (we were 3)very big with window with sea view. I have a complain regard the restaurants time, to have the breakfast you had to wake up very early or you're content with the few leftovers of the bar.
