Northlink Ferries Customer Reviews

  • "very good trip"

    Everybody was very nice at the Kirkwall end, very polite and friendly. The ferry was almost empty, as expected, very clean and they had sanitiser for the public, which I found very assuring. It was on time and overall a very pleasant trip, if it weren't for the fact that I was leaving my dear Orkney. thank you to all involved!!! Filio Tei
