"Midnight sailing to corsica"
We've always watched the distinctive yellow and blue Corsica ferries travel into port and so this year we extended our holiday by spending a few days in the south of France before catching the midnight ferry to Bastia. It was fun! The cabin was clean, comfortable and spacious and we slept well. The only drawback is that the cabins have to be vacated before dawn, in good time for the crew to prepare them for the next passengers, so it's a short night. We travelled as foot passengers, which meant that the cost, even including the cabin, was low. I would definitely do it again.

"Corsican ferry "
Efficient staff and service getting on and off. We travelled by motorcycle and would do it again. Large variety of services from shop to top notch silver service restaurant. Even a swimming pool to pass the time.

We really enjoyed this trip. It lasted 5 hours but there were a lot of facilities to have a pleasant stay. There was a swimming pool, plenty of deck-chairs, nice restaurant. It didn't feel crowded, however, the ship was full. Everything was as promised in the offer.

""It does what it says on the box!""
Mega Smeralda is a big ship, and we found ourselves parked on one of the lowest car decks - not the easiest to access for anyone with mobility difficulties. The facilities on board were very good, the cabin was spacious and comfortable, but we had difficulty hearing the PA announcements - until we discovered the discreet volume control! The crossing was comfortable, but there seemed to be quite a lot of vibration, which we thought strange given how high above the engine room we must have been. All-in-all, a good crossing with everything going smoothly and to time.

"Ferry trip to Corsica"
When you are 4 people travelling on 4 motorcycles and you all want to share cabin it's not very clear how to book this. Your service was still ok, even if it took some time. It was also interesting that we had to pay 100 euros more for the return trip, we bought it at the terminal in Bastia, than what we paid for the ticket we bought through you. We didn't even get a cabin that was the same size as for the outbound. We did this because we weren't sure when we wanted to return. Otherwise Corsica Ferries behaved very well, apart from one flagrant episode. When we were returning home at 21.00 they told all passengers that they had to assamble at the stepping from 19-20, but the ferry didn't arrive until 20.30. It should be super easy to announce through the speakers that the ferry is due to arrive at XX. Instead hundreds of people were stood at a hot stepping for up to 2 hours before we could board the ferry. It would've been SO wasy to improve the travellers comfort with a short announcement, and still nothing was done. Why?

To be honest I found a couch and slept most of the way over as I was buggered from the night before but to be honest it's what you'd expect from a cruise. Friendly staff, slightly overpriced food and not a whole heap to do :)

I travelled better other times with Corsica Ferries.... Boarding waiting time in Toulon too long. The cabin was not easy to find. Kids area not was small. Landing procedure really long (1 hour in the garage). Better than others companies... Best regards.

"A lovely trip to a lovely island"
We use a lot of ferries, but this is quite the easiest. No fuss either end. The food is good and they provide a microwave if the pasta is not quite hot enough. Breakfast is good too, including fresh pressed orange juice. The cabins are spacious, and although you can't borrow a pillow from another bed, as with some 4 berth for two people you can, it was fine. All very professional.

Both ways to and from Corsica were great. The crew really know how to load/unload the vehicles, which save you time and wandering around. Nice and clean cabins, arrival on time, very nice trip, indeed!

"Perfect length to get work done between vacation spots"
I found the crew and accommodations to be adequate for getting work done between my destinations. The time between (~5 hours) provided me ample time to catch up on tasks while the enjoying a tasty beverage or two.

We traveled with Corsica/Sardinia Ferries from Nice to Bastia as foot passengers in August 2014. It was a most pleasant journey. Our bags were stored in the baggage room and so we were free to roam the ship. We took the sun up bu the pool and had dinner before we landed in Bastia. The staff were most helpful and friendly. I would recommend this company for travel to the islands.

Unlike our ferry crossing on the outward journey with MOBY Lines from Genoa to Bastia, the return trip with Corsica Ferries was well organized. Boarding went quite smoothly. The facilities on board, catering and customer service were very good. It was a very enjoyable trip. The next time we go to Corsica, we will definitely choose Corsica Ferries.

"Wonderful ferry trip"
We traveled without a car from Bastia to Nice. And the sailing was without any problems, great logistics at check-in/boarding and great escalator that made it easy entering and exiting the ship with a suitcase. We pre-booked seats, but thought it was a bit boring to sit there without a view, so we went instead to the "help yourself restaurant". We arrived on time as well, perfectly according to the timetable.
