Malta reviews

  • "Sailing thru the night "

    Excellent spacious cabin but shower less than luke warm, with taps that seem to work backwards. Point to hot label when it’s actually cold Staff were helpful Crossing was calm and uneventful Left late but arrived on time so all worked out as expected. I think this is normal for all ships, a bit like air travel timing

  • "Grimaldi car ferry"

    Very pleased with this crossing. The boat was punctual. It was an old ferry boat the cabin was adequate although the ensuite could have done with updating. The food was nothing special but fine for the trip.
