06 Jul 2013Mini mediterranean cruise
Thought we were going on a ferry with very basic services. Cabin was lovely, crisp white linen and very clean. Lots of places to have drinks and watch the sights. Only negative maybe is all instructions are in French. Maybe put in cabin emergency instructions in English etc. for non French speakers to read.

02 Oct 2012An experience better forgotten
Is it not time that SNCM's Paglia Orba is removed from service? The tired décor and outdated and inadequate facilities make travelling on it a depressing experience. Here are some examples of what a prospective passenger can expect:- The "fast food" restaurant consists of a single supermarket-type aisle about three metres long with a choice of three salads encased in polystyrene cartons (so that you cannot see in advance how truly awful are the contents), some sort of stew which you have to queue up to heat yourself in a single inadequately powered microwave oven, and a cheeseburger - which also has to be heated in the microwave (with predictably dire results). If you want a drink with your meal you pay for a bottle at the checkout then have to walk to the nearest bar for it to be opened! Ice creams are supposedly on offer for dessert but we didn't find any. You have to eat your meal in a corridor (if you are lucky enough to find a table with free seats). Backpackers are permitted to camp out on ledges immediately in front of the cabin windows so you have to sail with curtains permanently closed if you want any privacy. SNCM foot passengers are treated as a sub-species at the check-in in Ajaccio. The check-in procedure does not take place in the large air-conditioned SNCM Maritime reception hall but in a tiny room half a kilometre away, after which one has to wait in a narrow and stifling hallway until everyone has registered before being allowed to embark. Next time we travel to Corsica we will sail with La Meridonale in both directions.
