""It does what it says on the box!""
Mega Smeralda is a big ship, and we found ourselves parked on one of the lowest car decks - not the easiest to access for anyone with mobility difficulties. The facilities on board were very good, the cabin was spacious and comfortable, but we had difficulty hearing the PA announcements - until we discovered the discreet volume control! The crossing was comfortable, but there seemed to be quite a lot of vibration, which we thought strange given how high above the engine room we must have been. All-in-all, a good crossing with everything going smoothly and to time.

"Ferry review: Toulon to Ajaccio return"
Ferry was overall a good experience for us, other than very early time of arrivals at both ends. Food was good; service was excellent. I have two suggestions: (1) - reduce temperature in staterooms; much too hot (over 80 degrees), with no means to control from rooms and windows not openable; (2) - car loading much too tightly packed in, leaving only extremely restricted egress from vehicles, and almost impossible to remove & transport luggage from cars to staterooms.

"August / September 2014"
Both ways to and from Corsica were great. The crew really know how to load/unload the vehicles, which save you time and wandering around. Nice and clean cabins, arrival on time, very nice trip, indeed!

"Why does it have to be so cold?"
The ferry left Toulon two or three hours late so I was very tired when I went on board and it didn't occur to me I'd need a sleeping bag to keep warm. I've very seldom felt so cold - I had to take a walk around the ferry every hour through the night to keep my blood circulating. It's good value, but I can't see why it needs such intense air conditioning.

The French city of Toulon lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France. It is a major French naval base and consequently has a large military harbour which is home to the French Navy aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle and her battle group along with the rest of the French Mediterranean Fleet. Toulon's history has strong links with many industries including shipbuilding, wine making, armaments, paper, maps, shoes, electronic equipment and the manufacture of aeronautical equipment.
Toulon's Old Town is located between the port, the Boulevard de Strasbourg and the Cours Lafayette, and is characterised by narrow streets, fountains and small squares and is where the city's cathedral is located. Selling local produce every morning, the area is also home to the popular Provencal market. Unfortunately the area fell into disrepair during the 1980's and 1990's but fortunately many of the town's fountains and squares have since been restored which has attracted many new shops to open up.
The city's port has two ferry terminals and has good passenger facilities including cafes, vending machines, a snack bar, toilets and long stay and short stay car parking. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Ajaccio, Bastia, Ile Rousse and Civitavecchia.
Ajaccio is the largest town on the French island of Corsica and is located on its south west coast, around 210 miles to the south east of Marseille, on the French mainland. The harbour in the town lies at the bottom of a hill that overlooks the peninsular which protects the harbour, and to the east of the original citadel, and on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio. Napoleon Bonaparte is arguably the town's most famous resident who was born in the Casa Buonaparte in 1769. His former house is now open to the public. The town's lovely mellow-toned buildings, lively cafes and marina make the town an ideal place to stroll through and explore.
The town's harbour is a major stop over for cruises and is the second busiest in France, after Marseille. Ferries from the port depart almost daily to Marseille, Toulon and Nice on the French mainland. There are also seasonal services to Livorno, Sardinia, Calvi and Propriano. The two major shipping companies providing these links are SNCM and Corsica Ferries.
