Priority Disembarkation Service
Be the first to disembark and start your holiday straight away
With the new GNV Priority Disembarkation service, you can be one of the first passengers to disembark, without having to wait in the garage, which means you can start your holiday sooner.
By choosing GNV’s Priority Disembarkation service, you will have access to a separate queue in the embarkation area. Once you have parked your vehicle, you can choose whether to leave it in the parking area and get on board to start using the ship’s services (except on the Genoa-Tunis route), or stay inside your vehicle while waiting to embark.
This service is reserved for the A1 Car category (4.99 l – 1.90 h), and exclusively on the Genoa/Palermo, Genoa/Porto Torres, Genoa/Olbia and Genoa/Tunis routes.
The Priority Disembarkation service costs between €20 and €30 depending on the travel dates and the route selected.
Add the “Priority Disembarkation” service while purchasing on our website or at the GNV Contact Centre, ticket offices or Travel Agencies.
Please note that availability is limited. We suggest you take a look at our late check-out cabin service to find the perfect combination to go with your priority disembarkation service, so that you can start your holiday straight away, before you even get there, and well rested.

Be the first to disembark and start your holiday straight away! Priority Disembarkation: how it works
1. Display your receipt During check-in, you will receive a Priority Disembarkation sticker that you must stick on your car’s dashboard.
2. Park in the designated area The terminal staff will direct you to a designated wharf parking area, marked by special signs. Once you have parked your vehicle, you will be able to choose whether to leave it in the parking area and get on board to start using the ship’s services or wait inside your vehicle.
3. Embark your vehicle Our shipboard personnel will let you know, through special announcements, when it is time to drive down to the wharf so that you can embark your car, as instructed by the GNV operators (approximately 30 minutes before departure).
4. Be the first to disembark When the ship enters the port, on-board announcements will be made to provide instructions on how to access the garages. You will be the first to disembark, without having to wait.
