GLD Lines

GLD Lines (Grimaldi Louis Dreyfus Armateurs) is the joint venture of a partnership between two big European ferry companies, the Grimaldi Group and Louis Dreyfus Armateurs. The partnership came together to work the new `sea motorway' route linking the two stunning Mediterranean favourites Rome (via Civitavecchia port) and the south of France (via Toulon).

GLD Lines vessels offered a high standard of speed and comfort; Their ferry Eurostar Valencia can reach a speed of 22 knots and performed the journey in only 14 hours. Onboard there were cabins, suites, a self-service restaurant, bars and many more top-quality facilities.

    Absolutely gorgeous!
    • Catania to Salerno with Grimaldi Lines

      Absolutely gorgeous! Big comfortable clean cabin. Good restaurant for dinner that opens 1 hour and 15 min before departure.

    Great experience!
    • Livorno to Palermo with Grimaldi Lines

      Livorno - Palermo. Very comfortable cabin, great, filling and tasty lunch though standard non-business (did not buy dinner for my journey), and felt very comfortable and safe aboard--almost like a mini-cruise ship. Pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. Will definitely sail with Grimaldi again.

    Old Ferry
    • Salerno to Catania with Grimaldi Lines

      The ferry was old and used. Not very well equipped. Chaos during getting off the ferry.

    Family with a caravan
    • Barcelona to Civitavecchia with Grimaldi Lines

      Unfortunately the directions to the ferry terminal and check in instructions when you get there were limited and there was nothing specific for a caravan which would have been useful. We had also expected a roll on and roll off ferry and were horrified to see coach and lorry drivers reversing on. We were instructed to drive on but were then concerned about reversing off in Rome. i must say the crew were clearly very experienced and helpful speaking English and helping me reverse off telling me to turn left or right as required. Having now experienced the ferry crossing i would recommend it to all and would be happy to use it and other crossings abroad again. We booked a cabin suite which was great to have some space to ourselves.
