I was most impressed with the price I paid , compared to Condor Ferries. I have already recommended Direct ferries to friends. I hope that I get a good deal next year! Thank you.

"It was ok"

It was overall fair. But I can't believe Directferries charge full price for an baby of 3 months old. Furthermore, there is no lift on upper deck. So no access for pushchairs or disable chairs.

Good trip out, and easy loading etc. Fast service, but wind and tide caused delay on return trip. Good service.
