"Comfy beds, good food and good service!"
Had our own room for an overnight ferry for a very reasonable price, left 5 minutes late. A lot of choice for food and drinks on board. Beds were very comfortable.

"Comfortable cabin with friendly staff."
Having never travelled overnight by ferry before, I was unsure as to what to expect. I was really pleased with the journey, it was comfortable and pleasant and had excellent facilties onboard. The staff were approachable and friendly.

"Great way to travel from Sicily to Naples!"
Travelled to Sicily by train from the UK and took the boat back to Naples to make a 'round trip'. From arrival at the port to check in, everything was perfect! Easy check-in and walk across the dock to board the ship, welcomed aboard and found our comfortable, clean two-berth cabin with bathroom. Plenty of public accommodation space, enjoyed an evening meal in the restaurant and breakfast in the cafe with good coffee as the boat arrived into Naples. Excellent value for money considering the distance travelled and quality of overnight accommodation. Highly recommended.

"Napoli-Palermo-Napoli Oct 2, Oct 10 2014"
this was our first time taking an overnight Ferry. Much of it was frustrating for the following reasons: 1. There was no information that told us to go to reception to get our room key so we went directly to the room and then had to move our baggage twice. 2. On the trip from Napoli to Palermo the speaker system was impossible to understand either in Italian or English. 3. On the trip from Palermo to Napoli the staff insisted that my wife get out of the car and climb the stairs to board, which is difficult for her as she has a bad hip. This was not the case on the trip from Napoli to Palermo. 4. On the Napoli-Palermo trip we tried to buy a drink at the bar and the bartender told us he could not make change for a 20 euro bill. That is intolerable. On the positive side, the meals at the restaurant were very good and relatively well priced; The accommodations were clean and reasonably comfortable; the staff was friendly and helpful for the most part, except for the one who insisted my wife walk up the stairs to board and the bartender who refused to accept the 20 euro bill for our drinks saying he had no change.

"A nice, very spacious boat with decent facilities and particularly helpful bar/café staff."
A nice, very spacious boat with decent facilities and particularly helpful bar/café staff. The staff only speak Italian, but why shouldn't they - this is a service from Italy to Italy. The approach to loading and vehicle securing is pretty southern Italian too - namely very relaxed. We secured our motorcycle ourselves as we weren't happy with the way it had been done but, as this is the Med, not the North Sea, it would have been fine just with the two bits of string (OK, thin rope) used by the deck crew. We'd happily use this service/ company again.

"great way to travel"
Having taken a train from Rome to Catania , Sicily and experienced the train being ferried over to Sicily was a great way to get there..Wishing to spend more time in Sicily and finding the "Direct Ferries" site , reading reviews and selecting to get a cabin were all good decisions.The ship was great ,clean and all staff,crew on-board were more than professional about their duties. 30 + years in the travel industry has shown me more than one "good idea I wish I never had"..This was NOT one of them..The entire experience from boarding to departure was a delight.Arriving the following AM in Naples well fed well rested and ready for the next leg of our travels was the best and I look forward to more travel on Ferry/ships in the future.Great Job

"Boat trip was nice but check-in was confusing.."
We rented a Family Room for 2 adults and a child. The photo showed a Queen and a couch. The couch actually folds over into a real twin bed and another twin drops above for 2 bunks. The bathroom was clean and big with toiletries and slippers. The carpet and bedding were a little dated but everything was clean. The rest of the ship is actually quite nice with 2 dining areas, a coffee bar/dance floor, a TV room with 4 or 5 large screens and theater seating, and a gift shop. We didn't use anything except the coffee bar for breakfast since we had to be awake so early. They will not let anyone down to their car until it is time to drive off so you wait a good while in the lobby while the foot passengers disembark. Some truck drivers showed up just before the ropes were lifted because they knew the process (extra sleep). Once they let you down to the cars, it goes fairly quickly so that is probably why they want everyone ready and waiting. Check-in at the port, however, was confusing for us. First of all you must change your email confirmation for actual tickets at the check-in building. The email we received did not say SNAV only Grand Navi Veloci and there are two ferry companies leaving at the same time. The first entrance into the port says SNAV but it is not for cars(foot passengers maybe?). The car entrance is the last entrance with the official PORT Entrance sign. Once you get your tickets, which is a fairly quick process, then you have to drive your car directly behind the check-in building but you have to drive off in a completely opposite circular pattern to get back. There are people to ask. WARNING: We booked the reservation knowing we were taking a rental car and put Hertz/Hertz in the make/model. That did not work. They made us go back to the ticket office and get the tickets reprinted with the actual plate number and it cost an extra 25 Euros. Take your rental key in and have them put that information on the tickets before they print them the first time. We were glad we allowed 2 hours for check-in. Otherwise it was a nice ride with nice views leaving Naples. The seas were choppy overnight but I don't know if that is normal. Not enough to get sea sick but since we were not used to the waves we woke up several times. Overall, I'd do it again.

"Recommend Grandi Navi"
Our trip was overnight from Naples to Palermo and back. The room was clean and had outlets to charge our electronics. It's pretty tight in the bathroom/shower and should have had an extra towel to soak up the water on the floor. There were three of us and had to ask for the third towel. We brought our own food after reading reviews of the food on board so can't review their fare. All in all it was a good trip.

"Very average ferry"
Unfortunately I made a mistake with the reservation so I went with "Autostrade del Mare" instead of GNV, the cabin that we has was too small and the beds uncomfortable. We are elderly people and in the return my husband preferred to sleep in the little sofa, the ship was really old, only redeeming factor was that the staff were quite nice I hope they don't loose the job for all of those inconveniences.

The crossing was perfect thanks to the perfect sailing conditions. The cabin was really clean and in the morning after it was possible to have breakfast at the bar, the staff were really kind and helpful, it seemed to be more like a cruise than a ferry trip. Completely satisfied

"Crossing Naples - Palermo "
Training and arriving on time, fast loading (motorcycle), the cleanliness of the ship and in the cabin there were no defects. Comprehensive food offer in the self-condition restaurant, quality of food ok. It was an older ship (MS SNAV Lazio BJ. 1989, since 2005 is under SNAV staff in service), the equipment of the vessel is therefore a bit dated, but still quite ok., only to part of the English language. General remained a positive impression, we would not hesitate to go again with this ferry.
