Grimaldi Lines enhances its services to Sardinia

The Grimaldi Group closes the current year 2015 with the announcement of a new initiative: as from the 11th January 2016, a new service will be launched between the ports of Livorno and Olbia, dedicated to the transport of rolling freight and passengers. The new route will be operated by the ro-pax vessel Zeus Palace, capable of carrying 2,000 linear metres of rolling cargo, 1,500 passengers and 100 accompanying cars. The service will be daily (except Sunday) both directions, with a transit time of eight hours. Passengers can enjoy the various facilities on board such as a pool with bar, a health centre, a disco, a self-service and an à la carte restaurant, a video game room, a shop and a children room.

The launch of the new line follows the recent reactivation of the Civitavecchia-Porto Torres and Porto Torres-Barcelona connections for the winter season, thus becoming operative throughout the year. Served by the two flagships of the Grimaldi Group fleet, the cruise ferries Cruise Roma and Cruise Barcelona, the lines will have a twice-a-week frequency both sides in winter and a daily frequency in the summer season.
