Olbia Civitavecchia Ferry reviews

  • "Very comfortable trip"

    The crew were very helpful, friendly and efficient. Our cabin was clean and the beds comfortable. The announcements were a bit scratchy and difficult to hear particularly in the cabin, but over all an good experience.

  • "Smooth crossing"

    Recent crossing from Olbia to Civitavecchia was very smooth. The cabin was spotlessly clean and quite spacious, with 4 beds for 2 persons (1st class). The restaurant was reasonably priced, but we were surprised that the food was exactly the same as the self-service café, just with table service.

  • "The best way to enter Sardinia"

    We took the overnight ferry to Sardinia and back, with a sleeper cabin, and had a fantastic journey. The price is just right, and will definitely do it again.
