About Barcelona

Barcelona is the capital of Spain's Catalonia region, and is one of the Spain's, or even Europe's, most beautiful and vibrant cities. Barcelona is a city of contrasts, which is evident in its architecture, a marriage of Gothic spikes and modern curves, including the famous - Sagrada Familia.

Barcelona is divided into two parts. The old city, which is the heart of the city, includes shopping, cafes and museums. Then there's Port Vell, which features bars, restaurants, shops, an IMAX theatre and the largest aquarium in Europe, not too far from the main Barcelona ferry port.

    Worst Ferry ever
    • GNV must rate as one of the most poorly organised ferry companies I have experienced. Ticketing is inconvenient and over complicated, loading and disembarking is chaotic and every ferry I travelled on was late. Add to this poor cabins. inadequate catering and rude staff and you have a fair summary....AVOID.

    First journey
    • Smooth enough crossing. Shame about the cleanliness of the cabin. The toilet floor had blood on it and the toilet had not been cleaned. Poor facilities. No entertainment.

    Loss of some Information
    • It was a pleasant journey. It was good to ferry. The staff were kind and courteous, helpful, hardworking and cheerful, in spite of a lot of work. Which it was a problem when we started to pass. When booking a month earlier already received, bill, ticket was not indicated, that have to another tickets, small tickets in the port. Moreover, it was shown that the Internet can be obtained ticketed to travel. This has been the final minute of the start only been reported. I had to rush to the ticket office, get little tickets. So, we were the first, who arrived at the port, but last we got on the boat,due to the above-described. A little information can help with this would have been eliminated. Other than that, the trip was perfect and we are satisfied, we felt well, thank you.

    Ports are time consuming
    • Had a cabin booked, and would do so again, for a private place to sit or sleep. Did not try the onboard food but hot drinks were easily available and well priced. Good, clean, public areas (pool disused) but nice to have a place to retreat to. Lots of opportunity to access the deck and spent the afternoon and early morning in distant sight of the coast. Good mix of people. Entering and leaving port is brilliant. An interesting, time efficient way to travel overnight but the delays, long walks and poor sign posting at ports at both ends made it uncompetitive with trains or airports. Left late and disembarked late, though made up some time on the trip. Would do it again, but would avoid having immediate plans at either end.
