"Good cabin, no issues apart from wifi"
Wifi should be much cheaper to buy, or made free altogether, especially after paying for a cabin with wifi already in place and reachable/available. a Strong minus regarding this. Otherwise very satisfied with the service.

"Driving From UK to SICILY"
By far the most; Comfortable, safest, relaxed and best value for money to drive to Sicily from the UK, Grandi Navi Veloci on the la Superba, twicw now I have used this service and twice now it has proved to be a mini cruise on an excellently equiped ship. I would always recommend this method of travel.

Having used this ferry route previously, I knew what to expect, and as usual it was clean, on time, and the trip was a pleasant one. I only had one annoying moment, and on the route from Palermo to Genoa, we had a good meal, well presented in the a la carte restaurant, unfortunately on requesting a coffee, and a liquer, the coffee arrived cold. We informed the waiter who told us he thought it may be as the machine had been broken since the day before. Instead of apologising, and making a coffee in the kitchen, getting one from the bar, or just heating it up in the microwave, which was situated next to the defunct coffee machine, we were told there was no coffee available. On paying our bill, I thought that in lieu of a coffee, that the liquer would have been offered free by way of compensation. No, it was not, and both waiters were by now being rude. A senior member of staff arrived, and took us through to the bar, and sorted out a complimentary coffee, at the same time as agreeing with us that the matter could and should have been handled better. I will use the ferry again, but if the same staff are in the a la carte restaurant, I shall not be utilising it. The remainder of the staff were helpful and pleasant through out both trips.

"Arrived early, but long, long wait to disembark"
The Palermo-Genoa service is generally a good one -- the cabins are clean, if a little old-fashioned, the restaurant food is OK and the staff are polite. However, I do think that the disembarcation procedures need looking at. We were asked to leave our cabin at 5.30 for a projected 7.00pm arrival (2 hours early due to very calm seas)and then had to sit in a very crowded bar until 7.30, eventually getting off the boat at about 8.00pm. It does not seem very efficient, but perhaps that is due to the multiple vehicle decks.

"Only one complaint"
I found everything fine and convenient. However, long before disembarking,thhe toilets werde closed. In addition to my own dismay, I observed several agitated and unpleasant quarrels beween needy travellers and cleaning personell, but mostly desperate people in search of someone who could help them. There should be clear announcements about the availablility of WC facilities.

The journey was pleasant, the service on board was good, it was on time. The cabin could be better maintained, it wouldn't need much: a plug in working order, some properly fixed towel handle, etc.

"Overall a pleasant trip"
My wife and I travelled from Genoa to Palermo in June 2014 with a car. We booked an outside cabin. Overall it was a pleasant experience. Loading was simple and straightforward. The cabin was roomy, clean and comfortable. The meals we ate on the ferry were acceptable. We wouldn't hesitate in making this trip again and would recommend it to fellow travellers.

"Unexpectedly good experience"
A very enjoyable trip spoilt by dirty sheets on my bed. Very comfortable suite going. Comfortable, but dirty sheeted cabin, coming back. Restaurant on top deck very disappointing, food mediocre and expensive. Staff uncooperative. Service poor. Not what one would expect from Italian waiters.. Plenty of good seating accommodation in main lounge. Wonderful coffee. Loading very efficient and well organised.

"Very good crossings / some suggestions to do better"
Some idea for improvement: -the AC is too cold inside the boat, there is the opportunity to save energy and to improve the confort of passengers -the loading of the cars is very frustrating: the first people to board should be the first the disembark. All you have to do is to modify the loading order. -the opening hours of the restaurant and of the self restaurant are too short -getting evicted from your cabin 2 hours before arrival with nowhere too sit is really unconfortable and gives the bad impression before the end of the journey. -the catering staff should be commercial : ex: a cold coffee which was still billed.

"Great trip to Sicily!"
Have been on many ferries and had the small cabin filled with four bunks. Decided to "push the boat out" on this trip and booked a 3 berth outside cabin for the two of us. Had a superb cabin looking out over the bow of the ship with a large double bed. Had the best night's sleep of our fortnight away. The on board catering was very good, once we had found the self-service restaurant! Yes the ship left late, but made time up on the journey and arrived early. The only (small) fly in the ointment was the chaotic and time consuming loading and unloading. Good comfy clean and recommended.

"a trip to Sicily in the portofino room"
We were sitting in the Portofino room on some chairs, which weren't very confortable for sleeping. Moreover, the AC was too strong ; we were cold. You should tell the passengers to bring a blanket. The lights were too strong as well. A night light would be enough for the night. The food at the self was very good, but the cafe bar was not. The ship was very clean and boarding and disembarkment were very well organised.

"A good journey but you need to choose your boat carefully"
Genoa - Palermo line We travelled aboard the the FI for the outbound journey and the Superba for the return journey. We were disappointed with the outbound journey and satisfied with the inbound journey. OUTBOUND: difficult boarding, the vehicle was placed on the external deck and the car was covered with salt when we arrived, there was only one place to eat and no confortable deck outside. You need to bring something to keep you occupied during the crossing! that ferry was fitter for freight than for tourism. INBOUND: the disembarkement is fluid and efficient, the boat is spacious and well equiped (there were several places to eat, several rooms and spaces to relax, outer decks with a pool, a movie theatre, a club...). The restaurant was good (the spaghetti with seafood were delicious). The lounge is huge, so in high season it's probably not that quiet! I would recommend Grandi Navi at the condition of being careful about the boat.
