Not to worry about the number of bags
One piece of luggage is free, all the others must be paid for.

On the Nice Bastia ferry, you can take as much luggage as you want, within the capacity of your vehicle. If you are traveling as a pedestrian, the conditions may be more restrictive as you will have to keep your luggage with you until you arrive in Bastia. However, it is worth asking the Moby Lines or Corsica Ferries staff if the ship has a luggage room where you can leave your luggage until Bastia.
No need to worry about traveling with your bike
On the train, bus or plane, it is often very complicated and sometimes impossible to travel with this cumbersome companion: your bike. However, on a ferry, you don't have this problem: your bike is loaded directly into the huge garage of the boat. You travel from Nice to Bastia in complete peace of mind, without fear of your bike being damaged. You will get on your bike in Bastia to get off the boat.
