    • Ether travel first class or no class, the seats at the rear are uncomfortable and noisey, staff were great and we had a really smooth crossing both ways.

    Smooth Crossings
    • I was lucky enough to have smooth crossings in both directions. The lounges were generally on the cool side and the seats are not very comfortable. Towards the end of my homeward journey I discovered the cinema - warm with comfy seats - next time I will be there throughout!

    Thanks for the ride.
    • It was a fun trip for us but I thought the special seats were a rip off.

    pleasant crossings
    • Not knowing that the Niarbyl (?)lounge was only accessible by a steep stair and without any facilities at that level, I mistakenly booked it. Once there, as a blue badge holder, I had to stay there throughout the voyage without refreshment or access to a toilet. On the return voyage I opted to remain in the main passenger lounge and was able to enjoy all the facilities on board. I wasted the money on the other lounge.
