  • "Homewardbound"

    After a long drive through England,I arrived at the terminal tired and hungry. I was very disappointed to find ther was no facilities for having a hot meal in the terminal. There were only two vending machines. One for soft drinks and the other for hot drinks .Unfortunately the Hot drinks machine would not operate. The power saving mode stayed on and I was disappointed to find it would not work at all.I spent five hours before being allowed on board the ferry. I ordered a burger with cheese and bacon from the Barissta and found the prices to be a real rip off.£1.95 for a mug of hot water and a with a tea bag thrown in. The burger price was a rip off,I got little change from £10! The trip itself was pleasant and I was most impressed with the value and service in the onboard restaurant next morning. For £8.95 I received a fresh cooked breakfast with toast and orange juice. I was also able to have as much tea as I wanted. In almost 40 yrs of using this route, this was a very pleasant surprise. Disembarking in the morning was very efficient, the staff very helpful and pleasant. All in all a very enjoyable trip home despite the disappointment of the Barrista Bar experience!
