Paglia Orba

Operated by Corsica Linea on the Ajaccio Marseille route

Named after the mountain in the heart of the National Park area of Corsica, the Paglia Orba carries up to 590 passengers and 120 vehicles on each of its voyages. This veteran vessel is far from the biggest ship in the Corsica Linea fleet but does not lack amenities and facilities. On board you’ll find luxurious cabin accommodation, a wide range of food options, a dedicated kids area and even room for your four legged friends in the designated kennel section.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Cabin accommodation comes in the form of two and four berth rooms, perfect for relaxing and maybe even getting some sleep during your voyage. Passengers who book outside cabins will also benefit from having a television in their room. If you decide not to book a bed on board it doesn’t mean you are missing out on a comfortable crossing. The lounge areas have comfy armchairs, ideal for taking it easy during your sailing.

Onboard Food and Drink

Corsica Linea provide a wide variety of food options for varying budgets as well as tastes. The more formal restaurant setting offers the chance to taste the flavours of a menu inspired by the best Corsican recipes. If it’s fast food you’re after the snack bar serves freshly prepared sandwiches and salads, as well as pizzas, gourmet desserts and a wide selection of cold drinks. There’s even a sweet and savoury buffet option where you can indulge in pastries, dairy products and hot drinks. An array of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages are also there to be purchased at the bar.

Additional Onboard Facilities

For foot passengers joining the Corsica Linea liner you don’t have to be huddled around your belongings for the whole trip. There are luggage storage areas on board, allowing you the freedom to roam the ship and take advantage of the available conveniences. All passengers can enjoy the voyage, even your pets, as a special kennel area is available for you to ensure your four legged friend also has a comfortable crossing.

Travelling with Children

Corsica Linea offers a dedicated space for children on all of its vessels. Special games are available as well as movies and cartoons, all of which are free in these devoted kids areas. On decks five, six and 10 you’ll find baby bottle warming facilities, changing tables and specialised children’s bathrooms, meaning there’s no need to get caught out with your little ones aboard.


Disabled access toilets are available for those travelling with restricted mobility.

  • "British travel to Corsica via Marsielle"

    The first thing you need to know is that the departure port is tiny. Unlike some British ports which have cafes, bars and some shopping. Marsielle port consists of 2 vending machines, toilets and the check in desk. That’s it. The port is located about 5 mins walk to the left of Terraces du Port . Our cab driver to us to the totally wrong place and we’re faced with a 30 minute walk so watch out for that. Boarding starts about 2 hours before departure, so lots of time to have a drink. You get on a bus this drops you off at the door where cars enter the ferry, watch out for lorries and cars. On board the bar, restaurant and food kiosk on one deck. There was only one veggie option in the restaurant and this contained an allergen of wild mushrooms. The pizzas from the kiosk are amazing and take 2 mins to cook. If it’s a busy crossing queue goes quiet after 9. But it’s a half hour queue before then. Wine is great . Toilets are clean. Few staff speak English
