Tips for your journey

  • Book in advance, especially during peak season (June-September). With just a few departures each week, it's best to book your ticket as soon as possible. Prices tend to rise throughout this period as well
  • Decide if you'll be traveling on foot or by car. This will impact the cost of your ticket
  • Pack for a lengthy trip. The boat voyage takes around 48 hours. Bring comfortable clothing, toiletries, prescriptions and entertainment, such as books, games, or a gadget loaded with movies and TV shows
  • Consider bringing snacks and beverages. While aboard restaurants and cafés are available, bringing some food will help you save money and avoid long waits
  • Make use of the onboard amenities and relax. Most ships provide restaurants, bars, stores and entertainment options including live music performances, disco clubs and cinemas. There could even be a pool on the open deck
  • Breath fresh air and take photos of the views. Take a break on deck to enjoy the fresh air and the Mediterranean. Dolphins and whales may also come out
  • Be prepared to undergo customs inspections. Customs inspections will be required for both entry and exit from each nation. Prepare your passport and any relevant papers
  • Understand some fundamental French phrases. French is France's official language, and while certain regions cater to English speakers, learning a few pleasantries and phrases may go a long way. Here are a few instances:
    • Hello: Bonjour
    • Thank you: Merci
    • Yes: Oui
    • No: Non
  • Before you travel, exchange some cash for Euros (EUR). While certain stores may accept Moroccan Dirham (MAD), having Euros is always useful
