"Grandi Navi Veloci"
The journey is great. Plesant AND confortable. However, the departure and arrival times are not respected.

"Not very positive"
I am not going to be very positive, I'm afraid. I travel with GNV, because I don't have any other choice. They have the Sète Tanger market. I would use a different company if I could. The ship itself is fine. Although GNV is Italian, you could expect that on a France to Morocco journey, the staff and the services to be in FRENCH! It's incredible to see the staff (and only the staff) watching TV in Italian. It's difficult to ask any information. The meals are expensive, not very good and lack of variety.

The ferry schedule is never complied with. There are no activities on board. The wifi is too expensive. Apart from that, it's clean inside and I don't understand why we have to leave the cabin one our before arriving.

The cargo port of Tangier-Med is located around 40 km to the east of the city of Tangier in Morocco. The port opened in 2007 and is one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean and in Africa. The second phase of the port's development began in 2009 in order to meet the increasing demand for the port's services. The port also deals with passenger traffic which is accommodated in the new passenger terminal, which replaced the city of Tangier port as the destination for ferries arriving from Europe. Facilities in the new terminal include a bureau de change, a small shop, a cafe and ATM's.
Tangier's history has been influenced by the many different civilisations and cultures that have ruled the city since the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading centre to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
The French town of Sete lies on the cost of the Mediterranean Sea, around 30 km from Montpellier, and is sometimes referred to as the "Venice of Languedoc". The town's coastal and canal location is part of its charm and visitors to Sete will find a number of good restaurants, busy streets and visitor attractions to enjoy. If you head down to the St. Louis Pier you will be able to see yachts entering and leaving the harbour and fishing boats unloading the day's catch. The town was built on the sides of Mont St. Clair, between the Thau Lagoon, the Sea and the canals, and is one of the largest ports on the Mediterranean Sea coast. In Sete, there is a lovely mixture of scents from the Sea and the garrigue (Mediterranean scrubland) in the air.
From the town's port, ferries depart to Nador, Tangler Med and Barcelona.
