After our last crossing in 2013, we decided to travel with the same company from Sicily to Genoa in June. The restaurant was closed during the sailing, the swimming pool on board was empty and quite dirty, just like everywhere on board. We were quite sceptical about making another booking for July from Genoa to Sardinia and Grandi Navi Veloci offered the cheapest crossings. To our great surprise, the ship Toscana (a former ferry from Scandinavia and quite old) proved to be nice with several excellent restaurants, entertainment and bars on board. All this at very reasonable prices. Good service from motivated staff. The 4 berth cabin was quite small and the air conditioning went off at night but this did not spoil the fun. Disembarkation was somewhat later than planned but this wasn’t a problem because we were well-rested. De return trip with Tirrenia on the other hand was just the opposite.

"Naples/Palermo and back"
Apart from a poor and disorganised embarkation procedure, it was like a mini cruise in both directions and highly recommended.

Our experience on the ship was very pleasant until we departed which is outside of the control of the ship or company as there was VERY rough seas that night. Neither my husband or I slept at all as we were really rolling around in large swells & it made it nearly impossible to fall asleep. Outside of that, we had a fairly pleasant experience. We boarded & went straight to our cabin which was in pretty good shape with the exception of a bad smell. Almost like lingering cigarette smoke - assuming the room used to be a smoking room. We decided to grab a bit to eat at the sit-down restaurant & we were pleasantly surprised to see that the restaurant was well maintained & kept. We had a lovely server who was quite attentive & were incredibly happy with our meals! My husband had a pizza that was delicious (and large!) and I had an amazing fish baked with mussels & clams in foil. Was a wonderful surprise as we did not expect to have such great food on a ship. We purchased wine after our meal & sat in a common area & enjoyed the bottle. We were disappointed to learn that the wi-fi on the ship was not working which would have been a major plus during our travels but regardless we enjoyed the evening chatting.

"Porto Torres - Genoa - without cab = disaster "
Night ride Porto Torres -. Genoa We had booked Pullman armchairs, as a 2-cabin approx € 400, -. Would have cost total time 16.5 hrs. 13.5 hrs drive + 2 hour check-in + 1! ., 0 hours check-out the outward journey was completely relaxed also treated via Livorno-Olbia with travel time from Karlsruhe in 16 hours and the car was it significantly more comfortable Pullman armchairs were a disaster (!) -., the tilt possibility the backrest was about 5 cm There was little alternative options for sitting or lying down, and they were after check-in already all occupied Furthermore, the air conditioning was too cold set -... Feels 18-19 degrees Sleep was out of the question - we have trembled us at least a little warm the food offered was OK so far, not particularly appealing but cheap for the ferry -., the price-performance ratio was okay. So if anyone should think of these possibility of travelling to or from Sardinia, take only with cabin by reference to appropriate additional cost, or sleeping bag and mat that you can spend the night on the floor or on deck in an emergency. For further arrival is recommended to prefer to go to Livorno, to spend the night in the hotel and then by day-ferry in 6.5 hours (8:00 to 14:30 Mobylines) ferry to Olbia.

"Crossing Sardinia - Genoa "
A relatively old but clean ship, the cabins according to age but clean. The food prices and drink prices were a bit excessive, since a monopoly shamelessly exploited. The quality of the food again was acceptable on the whole.

"relaxed crossing to Sardninien "
The night crossing is highly recommended for motorists, because we got a good night's sleep and were able to enjoy our vacation from day one. It is desirable to output the room door opener (card) at check-in. After the deterrent return by Tirrenia we can only the organization and personnel of the Grandi Navi praise - never again Tirrenia !

"Staff need to be trained and toilets need to be functional."
Without taking in account the extra h2 trip comparing to the other ferries (grandi navi veloci) we decided to travel with SNAV. Despite the fare was very high, we saved €100 because we choose to travel during the week. The staff on board was very polite. But i have 2 things to say: First of all the staff doesn't have any idea on how to coordinate the parking on the ferry. The second thing is that, in the morning, before departure, the toilets are in terrible conditions.

"Genoa - Porto Torres crossing"
The main difficulty was to… board the ferry: in Genoa, you have to find the ticket office and a parking spot. The ticket office is at the Shop Centre. If you show at the boarding gate without a ticket, you can park temporarily and walk to the Shop Centre. The problem in Porto Torres is to find the boat. You can see it, but several ponds are between you. Other companies signposted the way to their dock, but Grandi Navi Veloci didn't. On board, you can witness the ballet of the cars, which go through no-through roads and execute a U-turn before finding the right dock!

The trip went well. I just don't understand the difference in between the seat and cabin price. I think fares should be revised to encourage tourism in Sardinia, which is a beautiful place.

It is very unclear where to check in on departure in Genoa because the email confirmation from DirectFerries does not state an address. (In hindsight this would only be a problem the first time you depart from there since all ships leave from a central port). When we were queueing for the return journey the "boat police" stopped us because our paperwork was apparently not in order. We were directed to some office in Porto Torres. Once again we lacked some information and an address. Food on board was outright disgusting. Other than that the journey was pleasurable and everything was clean and well cared for.

"smooth travel "
Everything has worked out fine, straightforward and reliable. Cabin was very clean, also the other toilets. Confusing is the numbering of the parking decks. Same parking space number exists more than once! Yourself do not forget this staircase exactly the parking space number alone does not help. Food and service fine. Negative: Extremely many dogs on the deck, you have to watch That First Step! The top deck should be closed to dogs.

"Trip Genua - Porto Torres (Sardinia) v.v."
This wasn't the first time we made this journey and it will most definitely not be our last. It was very enjoyable, staff is very helpful when taking the car on board. The caravan is spun around and coupled back onto the car before disembarking. Friendly staff everywhere. However, we arrived in Genoa 5 hours before boarding and parking spaces are very scarce. Perhaps something can be done about that. The cabin was tidy and contained beds, made, shower and toilet. Unfortunately the shower did not drain properly which caused our feet to get every time we went to the toilet (luckily clean water though).

"On the way to paradise and back ... "
On the way to paradise we did not miss anything! The ship is in a seemingly great condition. Meals in the various restaurants and bars is varied and good. Only the prices, compared to the Italian mainland are a bit too high. What really want to be left is the state of the toilets! Neither on the outward waynore on the wy back did the gentlemen toilets properly functioning. Towards the end of every ride you could practically no more toilet use because clogged or out of service. Very Needs improvement! Otherwise Top
