    Fantastic trip to Venice
    • Very well organised trip with fantastic guides. It is worth booking the extra excursions, gondola ride, lunch, water taxi as it saves a lot of time when you get there as it is so busy in Venice. We were very lucky with the weather and the ferry crossing. A wonderful day out!

    Journey home in spite of Hellenic seamen's strike
    • We took this route because of a strike. The cabin was wonderful, very large, comfortable bed and plenty of hot water. The onboard food was tepid and very expensive and disappointing. I know it is not a fault of the ferry, but the journey from Venice across to Turin was horrendous, worse than the M1 on a busy day and for that reason we would avoid taking this route again.

    Return in spite of Hellenic seamen's strike Patras to Venice
    • Took this route at the last minute due to strike. Given a very large cabin which was a plus. Found the food cold and disappointing compared with our outward journey from Bari to Ancona, and also very expensive. Shower curtain in the cabin was far too short and the whole room flooded - such a silly mistake!
