I took this ferry today only because the MUCH better Fred Olsen was booked (several days in advance, so travelers be forewarned and plan). My 10:45am ferry left La Gomera at 11:30 and docked at Los Cristianos (Tenerife) at 1:30. No explanation for the delay....More

My partner and I took day return crossings as foot passengers between Playa Blanca (Lanzarote) and Corralejo (Fuerteventura). The two harridans at the quayside booking office at Playa Blanca really need sorting out, with a lot of unhelpful shouty gabbling. One of the harridans demanded...More

If you have a cabin it's not possible to check in on line and you have to queue for 45 mins in a shed. After paying 800 euro for your ticket. Chronic system. Ruins an otherwise nice journey.
