The cruisèr is fast and well organized . The problem arises on peak holiday periods or on winter when the high seas isolate the island community and vice versa.

We travelled as a group of 5 adults to the Aeolian islands. We used Ustica ferries to travel from Messina to Vulcano, then Vulcano to Stromboli and finally Stromboli back to Messina.

All ferries were reasonably punctual; loading and unloading was efficient and the ferries were comfortable enough - bearing in mind that the gain in speed (65 kmh according to my GPS) is at the expense of a somewhat bumpy ride.

I booked our tickets online before departure, although this turned out to be unnecessary as the ferries weren't very busy. The website worked well and I exchanged the printout for tickets at a booth before each departure.

The only thing missing was a bar service on the boat. Take a picnic onto the boat when you travel.

Our experience with Ustica Lines from Milazzo to Lipari was good. The crew efficiently loaded luggage and passengers and ensured that everyone had a seat. The hydrofoil left on time and the ride was a smooth as it could be. The crew handed out sick bags when the journey got rough. The young people on the journey enjoyed the heaving motion and made appropriate squeals of delight. The hydrofoil had a smooth connection at Volcano and in a few moments we were off again to Lipari.
An efficient service indeed.

The day we meant to sail Ustica Lines was on strike and all that was shown in the office was a note saying tickets are valid with Siremar. We tried to exchange our tickets but the Siremar agent just shouted at us and said wait for the Ustica ticket office to open which was not going to happen as they where on strike, eventually they accepted our ticket.
