Ferry Tourist Sitting, Lite Shipping, May 16, 2022
No complaints, except that it was so hot
Ferry Standard A, Lite Shipping, May 16, 2022
Left and arrived on time as expected. Reasonably comfortable and straightforward trip. Baggage fees seem inconsistently applied/described by staff.
Ferry Tourist Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), May 8, 2022
Easy to book, the location at the port for the exchange of the voucher must be more clear to know where to go. It was too cold inside the boat. Even locals said that.
