Malta reviews

  • "smooth as silk"

    Great boat but very very cold lounge and recliner seat area Is this to punish travelers who choose not to have a cabin? As i say lovely boat/ship Would defiantly choose this shipping company again if the need arises Many thanks

  • "Really great option for travel between Spain and Sardinia "

    We really enjoyed taking this route between Barcelona and Sardinia. We travelled as foot passengers and had a cabin which was clean and nicely equipped for an overnight journey. Boarding was easy and quick, the boat left (and arrived) a little late but that didn't really affect us at all. The only thing it would have been nice to know in advance that nobody told us was that we would be made to leave our cabin 2 hours before arrival, luckily we were up and ready to go but it would have been a nasty surprise if not! We barely used catering or other seating facilities but they seemed perfectly adequate. Staff were few and far between and not particularly friendly, but they did their jobs as you would expect and we encountered no problems.

  • "Safe trip"

    I have travelled with my wife from Italy to Greece on Euroferry Ignatia. The ship is huge, as a result the loading takes a lot of time and you need to wait in lines. We had no cabin, so I cannot share any information on those. I can, however, tell that if you feel inclined to reserve seats (like we did), you better not bother. The reserved seats are located on an upper floor, in two compartments lined up with aircraft- or bus-like seats. They can recline, but all in all they're not comfortable and you need to spend the night. Better try to board as early as possible and get yourselves a nice coach from the ones lining the walls in the hallways. There are roughly 20 or so places you can lie down and actually sleep well (but be aware that it's quite noisy, mainly due to traffic and playing kids whose parents do not bother to control them). The food is excellent, although a little expensive. Don't hesitate to eat at the self-service. The ship had no delay (a matter of minutes) and the trip was excellent - but we did have the benefit of calm seas.
