    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.

    Comfortable but bring a blanket!
    • The ferry was clean and comfortable and we had a nice snack before we set off a little late due to bad weather which had delayed crossings earlier in the day. It was quite rough but we slept fairly comfortably across some seats in the bar. It was a bit cold though, next time I'm bringing a blanket and a pillow - as many of the more seasoned travellers were equipped with!

    Occasional visit to friends and relatives in auld sod
    • All went as expected.Help provided when requested at check in for elderly companion with mobility needs i.e car located by lifts.Told this could have been arranged when making booking but if so this isn't obvious on your website.But the response on both journeys was immediate. Queues for lifts to the car deck when disembarking were longer than expected. A notice encouraging the young and all those fit and able to use the stairs might help ease the numbers.
