  • "I feel like on a cruise holiday! "

    I was surprised about this ship! Easy check in and out. Clean terminals and most of all the ship. The moment I enter brings back the memories when I was on cruise holiday. I like everything about this ship. Modern facilities and interiors with amenities that will keep you busy the whole trip. It add up to my holiday experience. I scored low to staff competence because one thing I noticed they do not smile much and greet passengers. I am a firm believer if they do it, it makes such difference to your experience!!!

  • "Way above expectations "

    Frankly, I was amazed with the Megastar as soon as we came onboard. I expected the usual drab ferry with a few sad and unhealthy snacks to eat and likely not enough room to sit. I was 100% wrong on all counts. We ate delicious food and wine and were able to enjoy the super clean and well-furnished dining room and aft garden with lots of room. I appreciate that there didn’t seem to be a lot of single-use plastics. I have already told a few friends to be sure to book this ferry for upcoming crossings.
