Comfortable Daytime Crossing
A very comfortable and relaxing crossing, Good food at reasonable prices and enough to do to prevent me from getting bored.
I enjoy these ferry crossing as the rooms are very nice.
Harwich passport control awful
The ferries are really excellent - absolutely nothing to complain about (except the 05:00 wakeup call for a 07:00 disembarkation). The cabin is like a hotel room - fantastic. One downside : passport control when disembarking at Harwich takes far too long. Only two controllers present - we were in that queue for a whole hour!
Relaxing voyage after a long drive
Having driven over 600km from west Cornwall to Harwich we were in need of some relaxation. Boarding was quick and efficient, the cabin very comfortable, the bathroom facilities great and the restaurant excellent. The alarm call was appreciated to be sure we were ready in time for disembarkation. The only negative was that the disembarkation took quite a long time - we sat in the car for about half an hour waiting to drive off. On the outward journey the disembarkation at Harwich was much quicker but the passport control seemed to be on minimal manning until 0700 causing queuing and delay for the onward journey.
