  • "A Tirrenia Sardinia ferry crossing between Porto Torres and Genoa"

    As it was low season, the journey was very good: the ship was clean, the cabin was well laid out and we disembarked on time. The only potential issue was the disorganisation at boarding (the check-in takes place at the ferry terminal, which is more than 2 kilometres away from the jetty). If someone arrives in Porto Torres and follow the signposting for boarding, they end up needing to go back to check-in and then to the jetty again.

  • "genoa porto torres a good value for money"

    Nothing to report regarding the reception in Genoa and in Porto Torres. Nothing to report about the boarding and the disembarkment. The self service restaurant could be better. The waiting time to pay is too long and the dished which are barely warm become cold. One negative: the morning coffee in the self restaurant is disgusting. It's awful, especially after a week of excellent Italian coffee. Except for the coffee (which is not a major issue anyway), everything was fine.

  • "Car Ferry Genoa-Porto Torres "

    The boat tour was on the whole in order. On the negative side acoustically unintelligible loudspeaker announcements. The food in the buffet restaurant was lukewarm, the choice of breakfast on the return trip meager. Places to stay in the bar area were severely limited by passengers who occupied their sleeping places there.

  • "Porto Torres to Genoa September 2013"

    Directferries' confirmation email stated that the tickets could be collected at the warf. When got there we were sent back because we had to collect them from Stazione Maritima, roughly 1km in the direction of the city. Queued up there again. Unbelievable that Directferries provides incorrect information!! the journey itself was satisfactory, but we did think that too many passengers claimed public space to sleep (even double air matrasses).

  • "What a let down!"

    It was the first we used this company to go to Sardinia. We were expecting a cruise like boat and were disappointed. It was an old, dirty boat and there were no attractions on board (swimming pool, spa, night club). The food was bad and expensive and the cabins were unsanitary (mold in the shower, holes in the linen, dirty furnitures). The staff was unpleasant too. We really don't recommend this company!

  • "Tirrenia crossing"

    The crossings went well. However, due to a bad guidance from your staff, my car almost fell between deck 3a and 3b. The signposting of the garage deck during the return crossing was lacking, and a lot of passengers got lost because of the 2 levels.

  • "Clean ferry"

    We had a nice trip: the ferry was clean on both journeys, the staff onboard was friendly and we arrived on time, which is unusual for Tirrenia! Let's hope they carry on providing this service because it's much better comparing to some years ago. I would suggest to take a jacket or blanket because in July it's colder inside that outside! On the bad side, the ticket fares are too high: we took the ferry only because we were invited to a wedding, otherwise we wouldn't have paid €323 for 2 people on seats and a fiat punto!
