Palermo Naples Ferry reviews

  • "Delays too long"

    Although the actual time spent on the boat was extremely pleasant, and everything on board was great (restaurants, private cabins etc...), we were asked to turn up 3 hours before departure of boat, only to discover that our boat had not yet arrived, and we left with 2 hours' delay....We were told that we had been asked to arrive early for security reasons, but there was no security check, so all in all it was a very irritating 5 hour wait .

  • "Great service"

    We had an excellent experience on this trip. Delicious pizza eaten and a very comfortable and clean family suite. Only small grumble was being told of arrival at 7am when we actually arrived after 8.30 = lost sleep!!

  • "Palermo to Naples."

    We found our cabin excellent and well stocked. Would us this ship again. Did find it very confusing locating the booking office at Palermo. The name of the ship was slightly different to on our boarding pass. As there were no indicators on the wharf pointing to walking passengers. The boarding process was totally confusing.

  • "Wifi needed"

    Everything was better than my expectations. The only down side was that there was no wifi within the ship.
