Malta reviews

  • "Passengers are not Sheep"

    The ferry was great and it's a lovely journey, but treatment of foot passengers at pozzallo is appalling. Herded into pens in the middle of the parking lot and left there for an hour, with no toilets, shelter or water.

    The crossing from pozzalo to Valletta was easy . It had been very rough earlier but calmed down for our crossing . Comfortable in club class . Had some tea and a sandwich . Slept for a bit the boat went from side to side and up and down but not bad at all .

  • "comfortable environmental friendly way to come to Malta"

    Taking the ferry is a nice and - compared to the plane - a very environmental friendly opportunity to reach Malta. The trip with the ferry was very nice. There is a lot of space and it is so much more comfortable than a plane. Only negative point: on a holiday and on Sundays there is no public transport connection from Catania (Sicily) to the port in Pozzallo (Siciliy). Paid a fortune for a taxi. Apparently there are buses you can book in advance but I never got that information, only afterwards. If you could improve your information policy about that, Firtu Ferries, that would be great. As I saw most of the passengers use the ferry without a car, so they need to come to the port somehow also on a Sunday. Also some more plug sockets would be great.
