    Reliable prompt service. The only criticism would be that the restaurant service (not self service) was a muddle.

  • "Absolutely unsatisfied"

    Absolutely unsatisfied. We called so many times Direct Ferries to change the departure date. No answer and we paid all the calls. . At the end we asked directly Corsica Ferries. Too long the landing and indecent toilets.

  • "Sheer Joy."

    WE sailed with Corsica Sardinia Ferries from Bastia to Nice at the beginning of Oct. 2014. It's a five and a half hour trip and it has been our most enjoyable ferry trip ever.Calm seas,warm sunshine, sun deck and deckchairs and an enjoyable breakfast made the trip feel like a mini cruise. I have to admit that our main ferry journeys have all been on the Irish sea in recent years, but nonetheless I would like to applaud Corsica Sardinia Ferries.

  • "Nice to Ajaccio"

    First of all the port of Nice:- There are two areas of the port where you can board the ferries, one on each side of the port or harbour, approx 20 mins walk from each other. There is a small mini bus that runs between each of them. However there does not appear to be any way on knowing, certainly not in English which side/office to go to. Other than that everything went very smoothly. The ferries:- All the 'Corsica Ferries' which we travelled with seem to be based in Genoa, so the crew is mostly Italian, which wasn't a problem, but a little unexpected. The ferries were well run and clean, with good food and helpful staff, would certainly recommend them if travelling from southern France to either Bastia or Ajaccio in Corsica.

  • "Bon Voyage"

    Just completed 2nd vacation in Corsica after annual meetings in Monte Carlo. Last year booked ferry from Nice to Il Rousse, this year Nice to Bastia. Nice to Bastis is 2 hours longer trip and much larger fery with more accomodations in therms of cabins and food. Ferry departed and arrived on schedule. Boarding is always a bit chaotic with cars and trucks and motor bikes off boarding but everyone behaves with civility and the traffic officials kept things under control. Ferry staf handling boading process was excellent, very efficient, informative, courteous and helpful. we upgraded to a small cabin for additona 15 euros which was reasonable since it provided privacy, sleeping, showering and a porthole to see out and allow natural light to come in. It didn't make sense that you couldn't have access to the cabin till 30 minutes after departure ANS we were asked to leave the cabin 1 hour before arrival. The cabin cleaning staff were very rude when we interected with her. Food and wait staff were very good considering the fact that this is a ferry for transpotation and not meant to be a cruise. Many pets were on board which is fine and they seemed to have good accomodations for the animals. All things considered it was good value for the money and a pleasant trip. Hope to use Corsica Ferries for years to come.

  • "August / September 2014"

    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!

    Very friendly staff. My daughter who was on crutches was immediately allowed to use the elevator and escorted upstairs by a crew member. Also, the food and the breakfast were delicious!!!! Shame there was no water in the pool. Very recommendable.

    Our journey to Corsica with this ferry was very good. We did not travel with car, so it was not easy to know where to board the ship as a foot passenger. This should have been signaled better.

  • "Fun alternative to flying "

    I caught the 5 hour ferry from Nice to Corsica just to experience the trip. I didn't have a car on the ferry. I loved it. It was easy to do, and the ferry was fun. I paid a little extra for a reclining chair and was very pleased that I did. I was comfortable and the food that I purchased in the cafeteria was fine. It made a nice change from flying and I would definitely recommend it.

  • "Our Holiday trip to Corsica started in Nice"

    We found the trip a little more exciting. Okay, we’ve travelled by boat to Texel in the past but this is different. Spending more than 6 hours on a boat is not nothing. There were plenty of beach chairs on the deck and when it got too hot, we went inside to one of the many lounges to watch a live World Cup game! It really felt like some kind Love boat. Very relaxed!

  • "A CROSSING TO CORSICA"

    A beautiful ferry, a welcoming staff, the inbound journey was punctual. The lack of consideration of some passengers who put their bags on the seats to prevent other people from seating is pityful. Pets should be in a cage and it should be forbiden to walk barefoot on the carpet. I'd like to thank the company again for this pleasant crossing.

  • "A trip to Corsica"

    We travelled during the day. It was a very good journey, we'll use Corsica Sardinia Ferries again. I just have a comment regarding the inbound ferry (the Mega Express Five I think). It's a shame that the restaurant is located at the centre of the boat without any sea view. However, you can see the sea from the cafeteria.
