Ancona Durres Ferry reviews

  • "Returning to Albania"

    After a long, eventful trip to Italy, I returned via the Adria Ferries from Ancona to Durres. It was like being on a luxury cruise ship. The facilities were very clean, pleasing to the eye, and the staff quite helpful. The only "problem" was that the ferry arrived early and I had to get off. Hope to have the opportunity to travel again in the future

  • "my experience "

    all good, but they have to improve the timetables. Because of some people that arrive late we can't leave late. Thay should reject them. Thanks

  • "A crossing between Ancona and Durres"

    We are used to make the crossing between Sete and Tanger Med aboard a larger and better equiped ferry: -the AC wasn't working properly -the only restaurant which was open was too small and the food was canteen quality -there was only one lounge and it had been turned into a dormitory by passengers -our campervan was stuck between the trucks and it took us some time to disembark -I'll recommend this ferry, but with some warnings
