Now, I don’t have sea legs at all, so I was rather nervous about this part! I hadn’t really looked into the type of ferry, how big it was or what there was on board. Largely because I imagined I would just go straight to our cabin when I got on board. Due to the fact that it was an overnight crossing, all bookings come with a basic cabin which have four bunks and a small shower room and toilet. You can upgrade to a cabin with a window, but as we would be travelling overnight, we didn’t imagine that a window would be all that useful. Towels and bedding are provided as standard, meaning you don’t have to lug a load of extra stuff on to the boat.
My top tip for this is to book in advance as it says you around 10% of the cost (we did this for the journey on the way back).
The food was great and there was plenty of choice for all of us. There was an option of ordering other food for the children too, so ours had pizza and spaghetti bolognaise.
book the buffet restaurant in advance;
pack a small bag with everything you need for one night,
take something for breakfast to save you having to buy it on board
Fab tips! Thanks Sian!
