    Food Facilties
    • The food on-board is very expensive. I would recommend eating before you board the ferry or have some food with you. I understand pricing for the on- board restaurant but the price for buffet is too high! There is no small snack place available where you could buy something for kids. We traveled with a young family with two kids. Although kids pay- half price for buffet, it would cost them EUR90 to eat in the buffet. Way too much! Other than that the ferry experience was really nice. Staff was very helpful and welcoming.

    Pleased to be on board!
    • After a long, hectic drive from Central Italy to Ijmuiden, in changeable weather, the comfortable cabin, excellent buffet dinner, and efficient staff was so much needed.
