13 Oct 2014Canceled even though they had confirmed departure 2 hours before
When we got to the port to catch the 11am boat, they told us it was cancelled. We had to take a train from Algeciras to Madrid and were forced to buy tickets from another company and Inter Shipping refused to refund. We have put a claim with the Spanish authorities. This happened at 10.20am and at 10.45 they were still selling tickets for that departure on internet.

Pretty painless experience. Parking at the port is limited but we found a secure car park a street away. Check in, passport control and boarding all simple. Crew advised us to join queue to get passport stamped on board by Moroccoan customs quickly as it can take a long time if the ferry is busy. Plenty of seats and space on board, left shortly after it was due. Return trip also painless. Worth double checking departure times as they seem to vary; also if you're being met in Tangier check the local time of arrival as the time difference with Spain can vary.

The journey took over one hour instead of the half an hour advertised and the departure was delayed for thirty five minutes so it was very frustrating.
