"Comfortable trip saving many road kilometres"
We had a very smooth crossing with good service from all staff plus a comfortable cabin. Food and wine reasonably priced but not outstandingly imaginative. We would use similar ferries again to save long road trips.

Great crossing and had a pleasant surprise with the unexpected complementary breakfast that came with the bunk room. I was impressed by the service. Good value for money.

"Trip from Split to Ancona"
The trip itself was very good. The staff were helpful and we were stoked with our seats. If I was to comment on the leniency of tickets, I would comment on the topic of allowing people who purchased standing seats to enter the section of those who purchased reserved seating. We are travelling for an extended period of time and are on a budget yet purchased reserved seating and paid extra for this. Although during our trip, customers who purchased standing seats woke me throughout the trip to see if anyone was using the seat next to me. As a customer I was not happy that people woke me during my sleep to take a 'free' reserved seat next to me. I paid £190 for myself and another person to sit on this ferry and was very unhappy to be awoken by people who paid nowhere near as much as me, to steal the free seat next to me. But I do thank the lady staff member that saw me shivering during the trip and tucked a blanket around me.

Bathrooms and facilities extremely old and in bad conditions, there isn't any kind of surveillance at night to make people respect the resting of those passengers that have paid -expensive- for a cabin. People can drink on the deck and sleep lying on anywhere on the ship. Crossing Split-Ancona, July 24, 2014
