    First Ferry trip from Lerwick to Aberdeen
    • My first trip aboard the Northlink ferry from Lerwick to Aberdeen was well designed from the friendly check in staff to the facilities aboard the ferry. I booked in my bag and had dinner at the buffet style restaurant, choice and quality were ideal. I found the sleeping pod I had booked fine for the overnight journey. As I had plenty of time in the morning being able to eat a meal on the ferry before I caught my train was ideal.Thank you Northlink ferry for a great experience.

    Pleasant Voyage
    • Simple to get on board, fine accommodation and pretty good food and good selection of drinks on board. What else do you need?

    Excellent voyage
    • My wife and I had a pleasant and calm crossing - it was a surprise to us that the ferry called in Kirkwall as the schedule by the time of planning said "no" on Wednesdays - we had actually planned to go to Orkney and had dropped the plans for that reason.

    Great way to get from Shetlands to the Mainland
    • We booked a cabin for 4 and never regretted it. We slept well and arrived refreshed in Aberdeen ready for our drive across Scotland to Glen Coe. The ship was great, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The food was fine and the ensuite in the cabin was great. The shower was a good one and the beds comfortable with a power point for sleep aids for one of our group. Having used the "sleeper seats" previously there is no comparison. Get a cabin and enjoy the trip it is well worth the extra money.

    • It was an incredibly rough ride over, nearly everyone on board was quite ill, so recommend the good sea sickness tablets in the winter runs as this type of condition was to be expected. Even some of the staff on board said that it was a really rough run, and were extremely hospitable about it all and super friendly. Our run home was firstly cancelled and everyone at the ferry place was amazingly helpful in getting us somewhere to stay and some discount vouchers for the next nights run. Overall, even though the boat was cancelled and delayed I cannot complain about the quality of the staff and the ship itself. Really great journey and great service and staff. thanks guys.
