"Alternative to driving"
What an amazing trip and a lot quicker than driving. The boat is huge and the staff are so helpful but the food does not compare to Sicilian.

We 'pushed the boat out' and took a presidential suite which had a balcony. This option isn't clearly labelled on the directferries website but is well worth the money if you can afford it because you get a balcony and the trip becomes a mini luxury cruise. Don't by the meal tickets though as these can only be used in a tacky cafeteria whereas there's a very nice restaurant on board. Loading is chaotic so just be prepared for potentially having to reverse your car down a ramp to the bottom deck and unloading is a shambolic free for all where the staff seem to wash their hands of any health and safety responsibilities. Just one tip, if you have a cabin, don't bother to vacate until you're in port, disembarkation takes ages yet they call you to leave your room 1.5 hours beforehand

"Nice journey "
I think it been a nice and comfortable journey with GNV from Palermo to Genoa. I will use the service again for sure.

The qualitu of food at the buffet was really poor and the staff did not speack english. This kind of ship should be avoid during the summer season because the better services like spa, disco or pool are closed.

All nice and comfortable especially if you have the cabin. The only negative thing is that mannerless people let their pets get dirty inside the ship... We should have more stricter controls and rules. Good journey.

"staff of, food sent us to the hospital"
It was our first time with GNV. We were amazed by the greatness of the ship and by the animation on board, everything beautiful and cabins were clean enough. Unfortunately 3 of us felt bad at the arrival because of a food intoxication (if you would like we could send you the relative certificates) fortunately my kids ate something else. Don't sell fish cooked 4 days before...

The quality of the service, clean cabins.
Reviewed 13 July 2015 by Anonymous who travelled with Grandi Navi Veloci on La Suprema
We booked this trip online. Since the price difference between an inside and outside cabin was not big, this time we chose an outside cabin. The cabin seemed a bit bigger and to our surprise the ship seemed fairly new with a completely different interior than we were used to. In summary, the beds were good, it was clean, the food was good, and the shower provided good. A good experience, however pricey.. Dismbarking in Genoa went smoothly because everything was very well organised and the motorists drove off quietly.

What a deal. How can you beat it at this price? It would cost who knows how much to drive the length of Italy, with tolls, and the stress of roadworks. This was like a giant cruise ship. Bars, restaurants, cinema, casino, playroom for kids, showers for those sleeping in pullman seats. I went off-season, so very empty and plenty of space to stretch out and sleep. Don't know how comfortable it would have been in high season with just one seat per person; I'd probably have chosen a cabin, but as I was traveling on my own, it would have meant a shared 4-berth cabin. My only regret was that a man in an office told me there was no internet connection, so left my laptop in my car (no access to cars after departure). Yet of course there was Wifi (how could Italians be separated from their telefonini for 22 hrs!) The captain said the sea condition was 'rough', but the ship is so huge it is very stable so very little movement. I I would highly recommend this option for getting to Sicily. There is an Ibis Styles right opposite the port, so it's only 1 minute to an overnight hotel. All in all it was an enjoyable and stress-free experience.

The crossing it was comfortable but I want to point 2 things. 1)I did not like the change of cabin. 2)too long the waiting time before the boarding. It should be reducted in particular for who has the car in the A garage.
