taking the ferry across the adriatic sea

Hello everyone,
I’m planning on booking blueline ferry tickets to take me from Ancona, Italy to Split, Croatia. Now i have the option of going with “seat” or “deck” when booking my ticket. Apparently “seat” guarantees you a seat on the ferry, but with “deck” you don’t have a seat at all but just a space on board.
Now my question is, if i go with the deck option, i wont actually have to stand the whole time will I? It’s a 7 or so hour ferry ride and i’d rather not have to stand the whole time to save a few bucks lol.

Ferry Question

I’m traveling across quite a bit of Western Europe next summer, and I’ve added a stop in Palma de Mallorca. I’d ideally like to take a ferry from our previous destination (Naples) to palma and then a ferry (3 days later) from Palma to Barcelona. I’ve found a ferry from Palma to Barcelona, but I’m having an issue finding a ferry from Naples to Palma — but I really swear I could’ve seen one before…any tips or ideas here? Thanks in advance.

Ferry from Barcelona to Rome

Hey guys, I’m gonna be taking a ferry from Barcelona to Rome, and was wondering how this process goes down. I’m traveling with a buddy of mine and it’s our first eurotrip. I found the website (…), and I know which Ferry I’ll be taking (Grimaldi Lines, Barcelona – Civitavecchia) but I’m not sure how the payment goes down.

We purchased the Eurail Youth Pass (8 days, 4 countries), and I think we’re supposed to get some sort of discount on Ferry Rides. Basically, do I preoreder the ticket online and have it shipped to my house?

Where to go in Spain?

My best friend and I are planning a Eurotrip from May25-June25. When will be going from Italy to Spain, I was thinking of taking the train from Rome to Barcelona through France. Here are my two questions:

1. Is it reasonable to take that train ride? I have gotten the eurail 4 country selectpass by the way (france-italy-spain-benelux).

2. Where are your favorite places to see in Spain? We will be there for about 10 days.

I appreciate any info you’ve got to give. Smile

Italy - Greece ferry

What is a good site to book a ferry ride from Italy to Greece? (costwise, safety, efficiency, etc.) Most likely i’ll depart from Brindisi and maybe arrive in Patrai in late May.

Thanks for your help Smile

Rail pass and ferry issues (rome to athens)

I am planning a 20 days trip between 11th May to 31st May….rome to athens route.

ROme -> Florence (will visit Pisa also) -> Venice -> Athens -> santorini
then fly back to rome for flying back home.

I tried railsaver, its states abt buying 4D greece-italy passes (but there is no santorini in the system…so i nv add in)

But am wondering, does the rail pass include the ferry trip also ?

am looking at this ferry:

does the pass include?
