  • "Clean socks"

    Well there's not really a choice for this crossing but it's ok. It's clean and spacious, modern and comfortable. The staff are mostly really cheerful which is hard to bear so early in the morning. One steward said "take your feet off the seat" really rudely which I didn't like. I had taken off my boots and had clean socks. I wasn't being a yob and he shouldn't have treated me like one. The cafe was as expensive as one would expect, but I didn't expect the tea to be so bad! There is no point making tea without boiling water, and it should not be offered if there is no boiling water.

  • "A little pricey but great service "

    It cost around 300 euros for the return ticket for my car and 2 passengers, which I think is a little expensive but the service was great. The boat was comfy and clean and punctual. Or ferry was actually moved because of bad sea conditions and virtu actually called me to notify me. The sea conditions were pretty rough and the clean toilets were appreciated because most of the trip was spent sitting on the floor in there.

Valletta Guide

Valletta is the capital of Malta and lies in the central eastern part of the island and the Valletta Peninsular is home to two natural harbours; Marsamxett and the Grand Harbour, which is Malta's main port that has a number of quays at Marsa. Along the old sea wall of Valletta's waterfront, which was built by Manuel Pinto de Fonseca, there now stands a cruise liner terminal. Many of the city's buildings date back to the 16th century and were built during the reign of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as the Knights Hospitaller. The mainly Baroque city also has traces of Mannerist, Neo-classical and modern architecture and the effects of the Second World War on the city are clear to see with many scars left behind - particularly the demolition of The Royal Opera House. In 1980 Valletta was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the island's cultural centre with many churches, palaces and museums for tourists to explore.

Ferry services operating from the port depart to Catania and Pozzallo.

Pozzallo Guide

The Italian town of Pozallo is located in the Ragusa region on the west coast of Sicily. A popular pastime for many of the town's visitors is to visit one of the town's beaches which have been awarded Blue Flag status in recognition of their water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety. The 2nd and 3rd week of August is perhaps the best time to visit Pozallo which is when the town hosts Ferr' Agosto and is when it is not uncommon to find many people partying and sleeping on the beach.

Some of the region around Pozallo has changed significantly over the past two decades which is largely in response to tourism although there are still places that have managed to remain untouched over the last two centuries and have retained a lovely 18th century atmosphere.

The town is also a major port with ferry services operating to Malta with a journey time of around 90 minutes on a high speed ferry.
