Noise on other rooms, no one tries to calm them, better to sleep on open area's other than on rooms.

19 Aug 2017Not using them again
Terribly chaotic experience. HAS to be a better way to go from east to west.. driving across Europe is preferable to taking this ferry. My inside cabin was tiny and smelly. The car deck proceedings were insane. I do not like writing negative reviews and only do so in exceptional circumstances, but I will not be traveling on Ventouris Line again under ANY circumstances.

11 Jun 2017Worst boat trip ever- poor facilities, people smoking everywhere, oven heated food.
Whilst booking was a breeze thanks to aferry.co.uk the trip was a disaster. As titled there was only one toilet available for an overcrowded boat used by cheap fee bus passengers with humongous suit cases occupying most of the badly laid out setting areas. Oven heated food was overpriced. Smokers scattered everywhere and dare to get outside for a fresh air as the areas were occupied with smokers! That is next to oil barrels and other flammable liquid!!! The waiting times on the boat stairs last for ever and the boat comes to a long stop before we get to the port (needing permission from Italian authorities due to drug dealing necessary cheeks) The journey is a complete nightmare. Long checks both on entry and exit add more to stress and anxiety of those who are just tourists like me. The service is poor and the adria ferries company could not care!

30 Aug 2014Think twice about using this route again
From the start there was no clear direction of what to do the - staff were mostly rude and stern in their direction. Up in the Garage decks it was clear of the inexperience when the one member of staff was trying to park three rows of family cars where it was clear only two plus a fiat uno size car would just about fit without damaging other cars. I dreaded what I would find in the morning but all was fine. When we docked there was no member of staff on the car deck telling people to wait until directed to move their cars, instead a number of impatient travellers took it upon themselves to try and move cars themselves this was hilarious but how our car got away without being damaged was a miracle. This was not the end of the farce the disembarkation was something of fawlty towers proportions. When we finally got onboard and collected our key and went to the cabin we found the toilet seat was broken, the smell of smoke / smoking was prevalent all night and the blankets were not fit for use. When we tried to leave the cabin we tried to close the door but the lock was faulty. We got a member of staff and told him about it he said 10 mins and it will be fixed, it never was and when we left the cabin we had to take all baggage with us which was very frustrating. All in all this was a 11 hour sailing of complete madness and disappointment. I also question the safety. Never Again.
