    Awful - bed bugs infestation
    • Please avoid cabins at all costs - we travelled overnight with our young children - within 2 hours I was covered with 73 large and itchy bites (I took photographic evidence) and my 5 year old was covered with bites all over her scalp. We had to immediately clean our clothes repeatedly once arrived at our destination - causing panic with our in laws. Five weeks later, I still have marks from the bites but they are starting to fade. Truly horrendous experience. Never again am I sleeping on this overnight ferry. The onboard entertainment for kids was very poor and there was insufficient space to sit. On the up side, we arrived and left on time. Staff were friendly enough if you could ignore the lingering smell of sick and smoke.

    Not the best one
    • I dislike the conditions on the ship which was not at the best standard for the money ticket.

    • IT was a very expensive journey, € 494, no cabin, I had to spend all my time(19 hours) in the restaurant, I was not unformed about very high phone costs and for the moment I don't have any connection phone line, my phone company suspended me for high costs, in two words BAD EXPERIENCE!
