    Seat reservation
    • We had to be ejected from seats that we had not realised were reserved as they had no sign on them when we settled. I had not realised that you had to pay extra for a seat when making my booking. It seemed obvious that a seat was essential for a 6 hour voyage. At our age this was unsettling.

    Fine once you're on board
    • Signage for foot passengers from Aberdeen station to check-in very poor. Very good service for Orcadians, not so clear for visitors
