    disaster averted, incompetence overcome
    • We're Americans. My wife's birthday, October 3rd, is normally recorded in the USA as 10-3. In Italy it's recorded 3-10. This is common knowledge. But the woman checking our passports to board the ferry got confused when the boarding pass said 3-10 and her passport said 10-3. She told my wife that her boarding pass was wrong and she would have to get another one (while we were boarding, so she might miss the ferry). This was despite the fact that my birthday, January 5, had the same problem (1-5 or 5-1) and she had looked at mine. Everything else about the trip was fine, but we almost didn't take it.

    • The facilities at the dock in Pozzallo are basic to say the very least and there are currently no toilets available until you get into the actual dock area. Check in at the town office had been quick and easy, but until the new terminal is opened and there seems to be no work being done at present, you have to wait in the open until it is time to board. That was quick and easy and once onboard everything was fine and it was a smooth crossing to Malta. The late evening arrival was no problem as the bags were on the quay side by the time we disembarked and there were plenty of taxis waiting.

    Virtu Feries without competition from Pozzallo to Malta
    • Even though Virtu Ferries is saying the journey takes 1hour and fortyfive minutes the true travelling time is at least 2 hours. Especially in the main season Virtu is sometimes more expensive than an Airline flight. When you arrive with a car which has a foreign numberplate just be Aware that customs in Malta will ask you how much Money you bring into the Country. Maltese People are normally spared of being asked such questions because in this tiny Country almost everybody is related with everybody. Therefore foreigner have to bear the burden of being checked for Money.
