    Not bad at all
    • Great check in, fast and getting there a bit early meant we got onto the ferry leaving before ours. Food on board was pretty basic but is only a quick journey so we didn't really mind. Staff were professional and helpful.

    Certainly did the job
    • Slowish check-in queue - but once at window immediately advised of an earlier service we could use. Very friendly helpful crew - v. limited catering facilities at Piombino.

    Pleasant journey
    • Very efficient with frequent crossings. Port can get very busy during August so leave yourself plenty of time, although, should you miss your ferry, Moby will book you on next available.

    It is cosy with Moby
    • Nice trip with helpful staff. On and off very quick. The directions to the port are numerous and easy to follow with Moby always indicated. The instructions said arrive 90 mins before departure - experienced locals say 30 mins! TokyoJacko
