    Fine 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.

    Fantastic
    • 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.
