    • Boarding was very quick and organised. Staff were efficient and certainly know how to jigsaw as many vehicles as possible.

    I was surprised I wasn't seasick.
    • The boat was ideal, great experience. I personally thought vehicles were quite expensive to board with however I needed my car. There was no loo roll in the ladies, luckily I always carry tissues. I didn't chance my stomach at any hot food however there was plenty choice with crisps, chocolate and sweets, the cup of tea I had however was quite awful, it tasted rotten, it smelt like fish and when I was trying to avoid the sea sickness, this nearly set me off, so straight in the bin it went. Next time I'll bring my own so not really a massive problem.
