12 Oct 2017Fine on board but not at Aberdeen.
1. No access to marshalling area when we arrived early at Aberdeen after a very long journey. Paid to use public car park. 2. An hours wait to disembark at Aberdeen while trailers were unloaded significantly affecting our onward journey.

10 Aug 2017Fantastic
We took the ferry in 2007 and it was adequate. Taking it in 2017 is a very different experience. We upgraded to the Magnus Lounge and had a berth. Such comfortable passage in lovely surroundings. The food was lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. We won't wait 10 years to go back.
