    Naples-Palermo and back
    • Convenient way to get to and from Palermo. Pay extra to get the sleeper cabins. They are small but acceptable. Staff was friendly enough but they do start to roust you 2 hours before you actually need to get off the boat. We went with a car and the loading and unloading process seems disorganized but it works for them.

    Tirrenia is a good reliable choice for the Naples to Palermo crossing
    • I was impressed. We make this crossing several times a year for work. This spring our cabin was newly refurbished with a comfy mattress and the bathroom in particular was very clean and new with lots of hot water. We had a nice meal in the canteen too.

    • This was all very easy booked with the port wS fairly hard to find on foot in Naples but once we established where it was the rest of the journey was great w had a cabin clean comfortable smooth cruising food typical ferry fodder overpriced ed and unhealthy! Staff very helpful my daughter left her phone in the cabin and we returned for it and they had it! No issues recommend easy to walk Into Palermo when you arrive in Sicily!

    • 2 hour wait in hot sun with no canopy to get on ship. Entered through vehicle lodge bottom of ferry. This was oily and loud. Only for place to eat closed most food outlets at 9pm. No information to navigate ship or where to go for doorcard!! Only luck I asked member of staff who passed me one out of a bundle he had in his hand?? But decent 4berth cabin not has small as I thought it would be. Clean and comfortable. Cheap accommodation and combined travel from Naples to Sicily.

    Overnight sailing from Naples to Palermo
    • Cabin was much larger than expected and very comfortable. Staff were welcoming and efficient dealing with large numbers of passengers. Food was good. Great service, well done Navi Veloci!
