The previous posts on this ferry(Excellent) were all negative. We were planning to go this way as the plane times to Barcelona are very limited. We are going from Cinque Terre and figured it would be a fun way to travel. We would splurge for an upgraded cabin. The reviews are a couple of yrs old and caution to stay away from this ferry company as the ferry is old and dirty. Any recent positive experiences or have people still have negative experiences. Thank you!
