I was on a ferry recently and the journey is lovely.. And the beds very comfy..I slept like a log
I've been on quite a few, until a few years ago had a fear of flying. Only had 2 bad experiences. One on Swansea to Cork route years ago, worst I've known, luckily a lot of my Cork relations worked on it so was well looked after.
Another coming back from Holland, journey out was lovely, Casino on board lovely restaurant etc. Coming back it was like a pre WW2 Russian cargo ship, journey was OK but the ferry was awful, all corridors were flooded, the restaurant was the pits, no cinema, I'd have been better swimming home.
