  • "June 2015"

    Booking in is easy and can be done in plenty of time. Loading is very swift with no delays to sailing. On board the facilities are ample for the 3 hour journey and I must really complement the food and service. We ordered 4 different meals, 2 were ready straight away, 2 needed to be prepared. These meals were brought to us in the dog lounge when they were ready, we did not have to stand around waiting. All the staff were very helpful and happy to assist, even having time to chat. The whole experience was very pleasurable and relaxing.
