Busan Hakata Ferry reviews

  • "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.

  • "Great service!"

    Buying tickets on line at a good price was very simple with Direct Ferries. The International Port in Busan is very modern and well organised. Checking in with our vouchers was very easy. The process is like a simplified airport. Ferry journey was on the Beetle hydrofoil was comfortable and fast. Disembarking was easy too. All in all, an excellent experience from start to finish.
