boat Marseille-Tunis

Hi,


Does anyone know if the boats from Marseille to Tunis usually sold out?

I was considering the possibility of appearing on the port without a reservation.

Thanks,
José

When I went earlier this year, the ferry was full. I would book as the ferries do not run every day, and I wouldnt want to have to hang around Marseille waiting for the next one!

Also if you want a bed in a cabin (as opposed to a seat) I would definately book in advance.

I made this crossing in November 2002, and the boat seemed full. Why not reserve?

Hi , Jose !!

May I remind that there's a -cheap- ferry service from Valencia (eastern Spain) to Tunisia ?

For most people is just a minor distance saving , but for people from Portugal / Spain It makes a big differerce.

not sure about the prices , but were on the region on 300 euros . from Valencia (Salermo)
Tunisia.

It takes about 4 days (Valencia-Salermo 2days - Salermo Tunez 2 days ).

>Why go drive North when you mean going South ?

mail me for details.

HAve a nice day.

I didn't knew about the Valencia-Tunis option.
But, unfortunatly, I don't have 4 days to spend in the Med. But, thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Jose

I'm in Morocco at the moment and was thinking of the valencia to tunis option. The boat seems to go Tues at 0005 and arrive 2 days later at 1400 (www.transmediterranea.es) or I think there is a Saturday option. So not quite as bad as 4 days

Anyway I was hoping to try and get it around 8th Sept if you are interested.

Cheers

Gary
