    • This was the end of our Trans-Siberian journey. All went well.

    The only option, and a pretty good one
    • The most important advice - take some food. The shop and bar are both really expensive (USD7 for a pot noodle!), and meal times in the buffet restaurant are a smash and grab affair with a strict time limit. Otherwise, the shared room was clean and comfy, the showers and toilets were fine and the staff were cool too. Access to safe hot and cold drinking water was a great convenience. Oh, and perfectly tolerable for me, I sleep through anything, but the engine noise was pretty loud in our cabin - take earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

    Best way to leave Vladivostok (or arrive)
    • I travelled 2nd class. So 8 bunk beds per cabin, but very comfortable: large and long, reading light, good curtains for privacy, much space in the common area of the cabin, clean. But you cannot lock the cabin as there is only one key for all passengers. As a westerner you should definitely prefer bunk-beds, not floor cabins. Floor cabins have no privacy (which may lead to getting into interesting contacts though). Attention: Rubels are neither accepted for payment, nor can you exchange them! Yen, Won, Dollars and credit cards are fine. Information desk staff speaks good English. No proper Lounge, only bars etc. and banks outside. Leaving Vladivostok by ferry is a whopper!

    a nice trip from Russia to South Korea
    • We are happy with our choice to travel from Russia( Vladivostok) to South Korea ( Donghae) by ferry. It gave us the respiro time between the experience of two cultures , time which we wouldn't have if we would had taken the plane. In Vladivostok, the Marine Terminal is just behind the main railway station, you just have to pass a walking bridge. Inside the terminal, the signs are not so obvious or are missing. Luckily there are people who are used to the formalities so all you have to do is follow them. This is how we found that we have to go in the office just in front the big souvenirs shop, to pay the terminal fee and take our tickets. Check your tickets to see if they are ok. we didn't and only in the ferry we discovered that we, husband and wife, were put into different cabins, even that we've bought the tickets together. It was easier to get embarked as well as disembarked because it is not as crowded as in an airport. The staff on the ferry was nice and helpful, and kind. All over was clean. We had a delicious breakfast with traditional Korean food. A minus was that there was not enough place for people to socialize inside when outside was bed weather. Still we could and share travelers stories with other people, and that would not have been possible if taking an airplane. Tip: Donghae Marin Terminal is quite far from downtown so you have to exchange some money in the exchange office there, even if the rate is not so good, in order to pay a taxi and so on. The express bus terminal was newly opened and didn't have an exchange office yet. So you pay for the bus ticket by card , or you change enough money on the maritime terminal.
