    Good trip Aberdeen to Lerwick return.
    • Pleasant staff, clean and tidy ship on time. Food choices a bit basic and uninteresting. Will use again.

    • Long haul from Devon to Lerwick but worth every mile. Excellent ferry crossing and facilities. Cabin wee bit expensive but very clean, comfortable and welcome.All ferry staff excellent. Again, all a wee bit expensive but overall a wonderful trip and holiday. Lucky to be in Lerwick for lifdboat day and enjoyed 2 hour trip on NorthLink ferry with lifeboat putting on great display. Not to be missed.
