    The journey was pleasant, the service on board was good, it was on time. The cabin could be better maintained, it wouldn't need much: a plug in working order, some properly fixed towel handle, etc.

  • "Catering"

    The catering was deficient, the choice was poor and the quantities were small. The prices are high in comparison to what's on offer (both in the self restaurant and in the restaurant). Moreover, you should adapt the opening times of the restaurant according to the time of boarding.

Genoa Guide

The Italian city of Genoa lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is located in the Liguria region of Italy. The city's old town, which has a long and rich history in art, music, architecture and gastronomy was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006. Additionally the city was declared the European Capital of Culture in 2004 and is also the birthplace of Niccolo Paganini and Christopher Columbus.

The maze of squares and narrow streets make up Genoa's historic centre. The city has influences of the medieval about it, along with 16th century and Baroque influences (San Matteo square and the ancient via Aurea, now via Garibaldi). Visitors can still see remains of the 17th century walls near to San Lorenzo Cathedral, which happens to be the most attended place of worship in Genoa.

Genoa's port is Italy's largest commercial and industrial port, and one of Europe's busiest ports in the Mediterranean Sea. The ferry terminal, located in the Calata Chiappella, between Ponte Asserto and Ponte Colombo, is on many levels and is accessible by passengers in wheelchairs. On the terminal's top level visitors will find waiting rooms and a shopping centre. Ferries operating from the port generally depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco.

Tunis Guide

The city of Tunis is the capital of Tunisia and is located in the north of the country, close to Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. The city has a lovely mix of architectural styles, wide roads and narrow alleyways which capture the spirit of the southern and northern Mediterranean. The stone walls of the city's 9th century Medina no longer exist, but its narrow streets, souks, mosques and other historic buildings still do exist and have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, in stark contrast to the old town, the Ville Nouvelle (New Town) is orderly and has a colonial elegance that was built by the French. In the centre of the city there are now some lovely buildings including an art nouveau theatre, Franco-Arabic market buildings and a cathedral built in a Roman Byzantine style. A popular pastime, especially to escape the heat of the midday sun, is to relax on a seat in the shady terrace of the Belvedere Park Cafe terrace. Alternatively one of the city's museums, such as the Dar Ben Abdallah or the Musee National du Bardo, are great places to visit at all times but perhaps especially so when it is particularly hot.
