I would give everything 5 stars, but because everything can always be improved, I will give this experience a four and a half. Friendly staff, super delicious food at the restaurant and, unlike last year, both during the outward and return trip, there was a live performance at the bar. Compliments to the gentleman who performed on the return trip, on Tuesday 22nd of July, from Porto Torres to Genoa. I still doubt if it was not the real Eros Ramazzotti, in disguise. So no bad comments, excellent!

"Genoa-Porto Torres with Tirrenia"
I've travelled alone with two small children, but I can say that it was one of the best journey I have done. The staff at check-in was very nice, in the garage, they were helpful and available. The cabins are clean and the beds are larger than usual. We arrived on time and the disembarkment was quick and well organised.

The ship was beautiful, clean and confortable. However, it would be better if it wasn't so cold on board!!!

"genoa - porto torres crossing"
a bad organisation to attribute the cabins. Family with kids have to wait for too long. No announcement is made is French.

"No English spoken!"
The cabin was fine and the dinner was ok, served by a charming waiter! The only trouble was that ALL notifications over the load speaker were in Italian only! So we didn't know what was going on!

"Ferry Sharden - Genoa to Porto Torres "
"The ship is already getting old., The device (eg bathroom) already looks" "used". Although we have booked a 2- cabin, we are housed in a 4-cabin. Of course, only the two of us - but we had a 2 he expects cabin (ie just 2 and not 2 * 2 beds). The staff is friendly, the ferry runs on time and off. The Board complies normal canteen food. "

"Traveling with Tirrenia "
Well then, the crossing from Porto Torres to Genoa and the equipment of the ferry was quite good. However us a few things have bothered that we were used to from another ferry company manufactures. First you had to pick up the ticket at the port office and if you do not know exactly where it is (bad Reported) can quickly rise times of stress. Okay, the next time you do it, yes. Secondly, we had a toddler with a cabin directly above the bar it was hell loud (until 23:30 clock) and could remain the same in the bar. Unfortunately, no sun loungers or chairs were on deck where one could enjoy the starry sky. Conclusion: If we had known that before, we could cope with it . We would ride again.

Ship wasn't clean enough in my opinion.

Very speedy and hassle-free loading and when arriving in Genoa, unfortunately due to a defect almost 2 hours of waiting time in the garage deck! Rooms and sanitary facilities clean but pretty worn (toilet seat, shower) For this price, still a good choice.

"Genova - Porto Torres and return in August 2013"
We will forget that trip. Tirrenia services are well below what you can expect for the price you pay (820€ for 4 people + a car). 4 first class seats booked: on the boat, they tell us that those seats no longer exist and that we can either be refunded partially and get second class seats or pay extra and get a cabin. After debating for 20 minutes, we managed to get a cabin without paying a supplement. I wouldn't recomment this company which doesn't care about their clients.
