  • "Stormy trip"

    Very clean shop. Staff were friendly. I spent the night on a reclining seat which was in a shared room with several other people. There was excellent entertainment particularly David Conley. He also shared a song with the female compare. She was also a excellent singer. There were plenty of options to eat including a restaurant. The food was very good and staff friendly. Same at the bar. Overall positive experience in spite of bad weather.

  • "Difficulties to amend booking"

    The ship was great. We really enjoyed the trip and everything went smoothly. But next time I will not go through direct ferries anymore. I only accidentally booked with them because I happened to click on their advertisement on Google. I meant to book a refundable ticket but that got lost in the process. The ticket I booked was amendable. When I actually had to amend the date of my trip my first request was closed automatically by direct ferries. I created another request and ended up exchanging a lot of emails with direct ferries. Every single one came from a different member of the staff and often the contradicted each other. Time passed and the new ticket became more and more expensive. Even more expensive than on the website of the ferry operator. In the end I was so frustrated that I stopped the process and ended up using the original booking.

  • "Excellent food and shops"

    The whole experience was great - the restaurant and shop were surprisingly good and reasonably priced and the ship clean and staff well trained The only downsides were the very uncomfortable mattress and super expensive wifi which disappeared suspiciously quickly I bought a 1GB package for £21 as I had to do several things for work and it lasted about half an hour of messages and surfing. I would definitely never repeat that experience again..
