    Long day
    • Lovely crossing but the time of return being cancelled with no reason explained was a nuisance. Especially when we saw an earlier ferry leaving about 5pm which we did,nt even know about. As we would have liked to have had the option at least. Luckily the taxi driver waited for us in Malta.

    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.
