  • "What a horror trip"

    The way there was more or less okay, the ferry was nice and calm but left over 1h 30 minutes late from the port in Algeciras. Apart from that, a parking is announced on the website without location or any further details. Also inside the port it is rather hard to navigate by car. The food on the ferry is good, the seating places are comfy and people in general are nice and helpful. It was our first trip and we didn't know anything about how this works or immigration forms. The signs in the terminal are non existent, there are no warnings or what so ever on the ferry stating that you require a stamp in your passport and no hand outs or anything stated on the website. We ended up leaving the ferry almost right before it left back to Spain waiting to get our stamp. The website states that Tanger Med is shortly outside the city, it is a 40 min Bus trip! The travel back to Spain was a terror, we had to wait 2 hours in the waiting queue for secutiry control, another 1h 30min outside the terminal until a Bus took us to the ferry. After another 1h 30 min waiting on the ferry we finally left. Instead of 1:30 am, we arrived in Algeciras at 6:30!!!!! Do take the ferry from Tarifa, DO NOT TAKE A FERRY FROM ALGECIRAS!!!!

  • "Safe but delayed"

    Customs and boarding process was very slow, there was a delay of 1.5 hours which made it very frustrating, especially as this boat was very big and had lots of trucks being loaded. The return though was much better as it was a smaller ship.

  • "Algeciras-Tangier"

    The journey itself was very good. Only, the departure and arrival times weren’t exactly correct. There were people who had been waiting for a long time. We were supposed to travel at 2pm but after checking in it was changed to 1pm, and we were not informed about this change. By coincidence, we were able to travel one hour earlier. The lady at the check-in desk was not professional. Best regards, Dorine

  • "Ok but late!"

    Ship was due to depart at 17.00. It didn't arrive until 17.25 and by the time it unloaded and reloaded with us and all the trucks with and without the tractor units we set sail at 18.40 the trip and the unloading went OK.

  • "Nice quiet crossing"

    Signs to the ferry were poor in Algeciras. We arrived one hour before and were the first there - though we were advised the check-in time was over an hour. They secured our motorcycles well on the ferry which was clean. The ship left an hour late.

  • "will think again next time.."

    The ship was fantastic, a little late getting off but got me there safely and I was happy with the service! The ONLY thing I will think about again is departing from Tangier MED! I booked this ticket first assuming Tangier MED was in Tangier! It's not! its a 200Dh 45 minute taxi ride away, and with making my booking early it was a bit hit and miss i would arrive on time. When I returned to Morocco I did it a bit different, took a fast ship from Calcutta directly to Tangier and a 5 minute taxi from Tangier port to the train station/city. I was staying in Algeciras however 1hr before your departure from Calcutta there is a free shuttle bus from outside the Algeciras terminal (20 minutes but nice and air conditioned) takes you to Calcutta terminal then a fast boat to Tangier :) Also if you are doing it the other way around go to Tangier get the boat to Calcutta and the free shuttle bus will take you to Algeciras.

  • "No schedule compliance "

    Last month we travelled to Morocco with Transmediterranea and I must say there is no compliance with the schedule at all. We departed with an hour delay and we arrived two and a half hours late. Other than that, everything was correct.

  • "Great trip"

    A hassle free and smooth trip from Morocco to Spain. We did however go to the wrong port, and did not realise the port was so far out of Tangier, ensure you leave plenty of time to get to the ferry. The ferry does not accept Dirham, so ensure you spend up before getting on the ship, and take Euro with you if you want a coffee. Definitely recommend this company.

  • "Trasmediterranea Ferry to Tangier Med "

    First - the ferry goes to Tangier Med which is about a 1-hour bus ride from Tangier. The bus costs about 3 euros. We got a cab ride back for 20 euros (4 people). The bus dumps you off in the middle of the city where you will be accosted by people trying to show you around - for a fee. DirectFerries said the trip would be 30 minutes - it was three hours. The ferry had a bad odor in the main room. The return ferry was much better and only took an hour. Overall, the ferry ride was acceptable, but I would recommend trying to find one that goes directly to Tangier.

  • "Comfortable accomodations, but inefficient"

    For the price, I was impressed with the services available on the ferry. The seats were comfortable and there were reasonably priced food. However, the ferry left 2 HOURS later than the departure time indicated on the ticket. This caused my friends and me to be late for our train, which we booked with 2.5 hours between our supposed arrival time and the train departure time. This left me with the impression that the ferry company does not value its customers and is not reliable for timely transportation. I would only recommend using the ferry if you have a lot of time to spare on the travel day. In fact I would give the ship punctuality a rating of "0 stars" if I could.
