Hakata Busan Ferry reviews

  • "Smooth sailing, trouble in Port. "

    I was travelling with my mother who is 78. Neither port seems to have special assistance. It would have been very useful to have wheelchair assistance to help us board and disembark. The journey itself was excellent. We had booked a deluxe cabin so that we could rest up. The cabin was comfortable and well equipped.

  • "Easy crossing from Japan to Korea"

    Very straightforward from check in to arrival Be aware that there are additional charges to be paid in cash at the terminal. Don’t use up all your Yen!

  • "Positive experience!"

    I took Camellia Line from Fukuoka to Busan, and really enjoyed the experience! The cabins were nice and allowed for some rest, but there were also entertainment, food and even a japanese bath on board. Thank you!

  • "Wonderful experience"

    So glad I chose to travel over by Beetle to Korea. Although quicker to fly to Seoul the journey I had was amazing experience and quite unexpected. Staff were lovely and having hot coffee and a sandwich was an added bonus. Depending on the weather the wifi doesn't always work although I did manage to connect with friends on Facebook while we were travelling. I travelled in November and was not at all seasick. In fact I was astonished at how smooth the sea was. A really great experience that i would advise any visitor to Japan or Korea to embark upon at least once in their lifetime.
