Im lucky enough to of never been on a rough crossing ..but believe in winter it's awfully rough.. I've only travelled in the summer months when it's a lot smoother..
I'm glad I haven't been on a trip like the one you described it must of been awful
Betty, the trip was in June so not winter
We paid top whack for the four of us to go in club class, all the comforts and such and I spent 95% of the journey in the honking toilets looking after my Mother who was sick as a dog
