Busan Hakata Ferry reviews

  • "Good "

    Ferry was on time. New terminal in Busan was spacious and clean. Even on a clear day the journey was a bit bumpy. If you suffer from motion sickness then take some medication before you leave. Ferry is small and you can't walk around but there is adequate leg room for the average person. Toilets were clean. Limited food and drink available to buy.

  • "Efficient and Effortless! "

    Beetle Ferry is a great alternative to flying to Busan and South Korea and effortless abd efficient. Price is compatible but you avoid most of the hassle you get when passing though airports. Also you are disembarked at central port locations not far from the city centres.

  • "Great trip"

    A quiet evening/ night. Everything closes at 22:30. There's no bar and the food looked soso and expensive so bring water and food! You can use the microwave after the kitchen closes at 9pm ISH. There is a water opposite room 320 on 2nd class. The first class cabin is like p and o ferry economy window class. But comfortable and with space. The baths were fantastic.
