Excellent ferry company. The staff was very responsive and helpful whenever we add any question. Trip went exactly as planned. We were asked to arrive 1H early at the ferry terminal and this was correct in terms of border crossing, security and boarding.

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.
