"Very good trip Genoa -> Porto Torres"
I used the ferry for a 5 day trip to Sardinia travelling by motorbike. Booking with Direct Ferries was easy and a change I made to accommodation worked fine. Direct Ferries give you vouchers that must be exchanged for the tickets at the office in Genoa - this is located on the 1st floor of the Ferry Terminal Shopping Centre. Luckily being on a bike I could just park it on the pavement and nip in - it is a very congested area so not sure how that would work with a car. I headed down to embarkation about 3 hours before the ferry left just to get out of the mayhem of Genoa. All worked well, I was given a voucher for my cabin and joined the queue. Good thing in Genoa is that you could walk through to the shopping centre after joining the queue and parking up. Boarding was quick and easy, cabin key was collected from reception and luckily I was given a 4 berth cabin. It was clean and functional, shower worked well, no complaints at all. Snack bar had various sandwiches and pastries or you could get a full meal in the restaurant - I didn't bother. After 11 hours of riding that day I was in my cabin at 9pm and slept through. Ship arrived on time and unloading was stress free. All in all an excellent trip.

The ship is a bit dated but it actually is a good thing - for 12 hours or so we got transported to a that great tine way back when everyone travelled by car and this ferry ride was a pinnacle of the experience. Quite luxurious, even if if dated (which, again, is a great experience)

We were happy with our cabin. Slept well and arrived well-rested in Sardinia. On the return trip, we travelled with Moby. Apparently they no more cabins available. Tried to sleep in a chair, very uncomfortable. I'll never do that again.

"Journey Genova Porto Torres and riturn"
I travelled a lot to go to Sardinia, and usaully with Tirrenia since 1964!! Services are really improved, but still there is a problem with people bringing dogs in the cabins! You should control more on board becouse is about hygiene!

The Italian city of Genoa lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is located in the Liguria region of Italy.

Additionally the city was declared the European Capital of Culture in 2004 and is also the birthplace of Niccolo Paganini and Christopher Columbus.
The maze of squares and narrow streets make up Genoa's historic centre. The city has influences of the medieval about it, along with 16th century and Baroque influences (San Matteo square and the ancient via Aurea, now via Garibaldi). Visitors can still see remains of the 17th century walls near to San Lorenzo Cathedral, which happens to be the most attended place of worship in Genoa.
