    Not really anything to dislike.
    • Apart from the price I found Irish Ferries met my needs. We always use the Club Class lounge.

    Trip to Ireland
    • We traveled from Pembroke to Rosslare. Very good trip both ways. Club Class seats well worth the extra money. Could do with extra toilets on the deck as only one female and male cubical. We were fortunate that it wasn't very busy so not really a problem, a part from that very good journey.
