"Rough sea "
The staff were fantastic looked after everyone on board it was a very rough sail, they went over and above their job.Read More Read Less
Had the pleasure of making the crossing on the Manannan Cat, an impressive ship. Reserving seats didn't prove necessary as there are enough seats during peak times. Anyone can take up a free seat in the lounge section (the executive lounge is policed more firmly). They had relative recent movies on in 2 screening rooms, which our kids enjoyed. Have not tried the traditional ferry.Read More Read Less
