Italy: Sardinia to Sicily

Jump to last reply

We would like (need) "current" info and experiences relating to the car ferry from Sardinia (Cagliari) to Sicily (Palermo).

My wife and I have been to Italy many, many times and this coming April/May 2012 we are going to see the only places left that we have not visited. We always travel by car on our own, and this upcoming trip will start in Torino, then to Genoa, to Corsica, to Sardinia and then to finish up in Sicily, where after a week there, return the car and fly home.

We know the car ferry between Cagliari and Palermo goes only once a week on Fridays, and takes 14+ hours (overnight). But the details and recent experiences are desperately wanted about boarding issues in Sardinia and onboard issues (cabins/chairs, car security, etc.) during the crossing.

Any feedback will be most welcomed.
