There is not a whole lot of (good) information at the terminal regarding where to get tickets, where to enter, etc. I think the booking/boarding process can be improved. The ferry trip was fine. It was raining and kind of choppy. For the price and considering the limited options...I really can't complain, it was an acceptable experience

Comfortable, easy ride. Ferry looks like it’s done a few trips but was fine. Make sure you go to the same port as the cruise ships at Swettenham pier.

Over all the experience was okay, boat was quick getting to langkawi. Although you couldn’t really get up and walk around and you can’t see out of the windows which sucked. It’s more the boarding procedure/knowing where to be and when that was the issue. We were just issued random tickets with no other information on an email. There is no previous information given on what the address is of the jetty that the ferry is leaving from. We went to 3 different jetty’s before finding the one we needed and were only helped by police officers we asked, there were literally no other staff around. For the record it’s the Bali berlepas departure hall and it’s the large pink building on the bend. Across from the clock tower there is a large gate, they open this 90 minutes before departure and you just go through a series of waiting areas until you are told to get on the boat. Take snacks because there isn’t any!

The ferry was taking off 1hour later then planned. We waited 2,5 hours in the hall with 100 other people. We had seats in the first row, which is not good. The tides were high and it was super scary to see the waves crashing next to you after a super high tide. Our seat was under an escape route, so water was coming in. We didn't see anyone from the stuff inside to ask, if this is normal. If you get sick easily, never take this ride. At least vomit bags are provided and needed! That's the second star.

Was told to arrive 90 minutes before departure, which is ridiculous seeing it was an 8.30 am departure, I emailed them and they said, ok at least 45 before, the boat is far from super fast, the a/c was freezing, I ended up with a head cold for the rest of my holiday, the safety announcement was so loud you had to put your hands over your ears, nothing to do for the 2.45 min trip which took 3.15 minutes and seas were calm, catch a plane people, if you have to travel on the ferry take a book or something, no tv working .

Arriving 90 minutes before departure is unnecessary, it only takes a moment to check in and then there is so much waiting around in a terminal with nothing to do. When on the ferry, the front section was so hot, no air con, so it was making passengers very uncomfortable. We moved to the back where there were empty seats and air con which was much better, even though the air con was extremely cold. I gave 3 stars because the price was good and the ferry arrived 1 hour ahead of schedule.

Having travelled on ferries in HK, the Philippines, Seattle, Venice, Rio de Janero, Bangkok, India, Thailand down country, NYC, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Vancouver, Portland and some other places I've probably forgotten and, additionally been an officer in the navy, it is not fair for me to pass judgement on yesterday's trip from Penang to Langkawi, as I can't be unbias in my appraisal because in all the previous mentioned trips, I was able to look out and walkaround and not cooped up in a too small seat with no leg room in the lower forward area with the windows blocked out with something like white paint. Nevertheless, I made it thru with conversations with fellow travelers. It would be nice for the snack shop to have some healthy alternatives to sugar, oil and salt and also having an employee brief the boarding proceedure while waiting would be a plus. Cheers

Goed georganiseerd, op tijd vertrokken, zitplaatsen toebedeeld gekregen-> scheelt weer in het zoeken naar een plaats tezamen met de andere toeristen. Bagage snel afgeleverd en terug gekregen. Zee was rustig dus kalme overtocht. Geen zeezieke medepasssagiers, komt de geur ten goede.
