  • "First time travellers"

    One person in our little family group is afraid of anything that sits on water and she was not looking forward to the crossing. Imagine how delighted she was to find helpful staff, good seating arrangements and enough going on around her to make the journey a great experience. Fares very good value and a pleasant way to begin a holiday.
