The best way to get from Long Island NY to Connecticut (or vice versa). The boat is clean! The crew is knowledgeable and friendly -- especially in the "kitchen" area. The seating is OK, but not luxurious. Over all a good way to get there and save HOURS versus going around by land. There are also several lighthouses that are... More

I find their new "base price" vs. "full price" categories to be distasteful and offensive. I can think of no other word to describe these recent change in booking other then "greedy" in the extreme. Even though the Bridgeport ferry is only a few dollars cheaper, I would rather take my business there where I feel that I am treated... More

Super trip. Not sure it is quicker, yet for sure more fun. The ship matters so pick the right one. Enjoy

My wife and I were very pleased with the crew of the Cross Sound Ferry. Arrival and departure times were right on schedule. The snack bar was good. They gave me a free drink for Father's Day. Took a power nap on during the ride. Thanks!

Our ferry was delayed for 3 hours! They didn't even gave us an explanation or offer to us some drink or part of the ticket. Don't trust in this company.

We enjoyed our ride on the Cross Sound Ferry. We were on the Cape Henlopen ship, traveling from New London to Orient Point, on the far east northern end of Long Island. We were traveling south from the Boston area on a Sunday afternoon, and the drive out the Mass Turnpike to I-395 was a fairly stress free ride with... More
