"Reliable prompt service"
Reliable prompt service. The only criticism would be that the restaurant service (not self service) was a muddle.

"Superb way of crossing to Corsica."
After a long drive the length of France, it was very welcoming to be on a mini cruise ship to Corsica. The ship may have been old but the facilities were excellent, and the food good. The cabin was quiet and pretty comfortable. The only issue I found was that the cars were very tightly squeezed together on the vehicle deck, which led to a couple of scrapes with people's cases as they passed. Also we both had to exit from one side of the car. It was good to have a long sleep and wake refreshed ready to enjoy our holiday.

The Express 2 was very noisy, it was impossible to sleep (I booked an outside cabin). De mega Esmeralda was way better, even the meals in the Trattoria were excellent. The service on this ship was very good. Am very satisfied!

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.
The city of Bastia is located on Corsica's east coast and faces Italy with views out to the Tuscan Archipelago, and is the second largest city on Corsica. To the north of Bastia is le Cap Corse which is a peninsular dotted with Genoese Towers and a large nature reserve that is popular with hikers. The town's history, like many in Corsica, begins with the Genoese who ruled Corsica from the 14th century. In the south of the town, the Old Port (Vieux Port) is a popular spot to take a stroll and to see the town's jaded buildings clustered around the fishing port, which are not dissimilar to those you might expect to find in Venice. From the port, a stroll through the Romieu garden will take you to the citadel above the port, which is actually the original Genoese town that was protected by defensive walls, added during the 15th century, and includes the Porte Louis XVI through which you enter the citadel.
The ferry Port of Bastia links the city to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).
