What people are saying about Corsica

We left as a couple and we had great encounters! The staff are very friendly, there is atmosphere, music with a guide on the history of Ajaccio. However, there were quite a few of us on the boat so it was difficult to keep our distance. At the buffet level, the sommeliers were very professional and generous. Charcuterie, cheese, Corsican products and cakes were served on plates with very generous portions! The wine is excellent. The whole crew were great.

Very nice experience! A romantic sunset outing with the added bonus of passing dolphins!
