Excellent Crew. Ferry on time. Very professional approach to transportation. The food service operation needs an overhaul. Equipment and approach to the culinary offerings needs to be re-visited. They could easily install a really good espresso machine and offer quality Italian pastry. How about some uniforms?

Had a very nice crossing from New London to Orient Point NY. Seas were calm... The crew was efficient and courteous. A good way to avoid the I-95 experience! The remaing drive through eastern long island was a lot less strenuous.

Very well organized, for the one hour 20 minute ride from New London to Orient Point, Long Island. TV room, snack bar, area for people bringing pets along, and plenty of room to sit and relax for the ride. About $60 for a car and driver, one way.

We recently travelled on the Cross Sound Ferry on a weekend trip to eastern Connecticut. The ferry is professionally run and very user friendly. We had a 5 pm reservation but were running early. We called and they gladly switched our reservation to 4 pm. We were carefully directed onto to the ship. There was very dense fog. Despite this... More

I travel on this ferry 6 times a year to visit my son in Boston. It's certainly not the cheapest way to travel but if you like a break in the action and enjoy time on some of the most beautiful waters in the world it's a nice way to go! The crew is first rate and honestly they make... More

A much easier way to travel North from long Island. Why deal with I-95 in Connecticut when you can relax on the cross sound ferry

We picked up Sound Ave just northeast of Riverhead and had a wonderful ride through the farms and vineyards along the north shore of the island out to Orient Point and the... More

Hate to drive west off long island just to go east in Connecticut? If you have never taken the cross sound ferry, I suggest you give it a try. From either direction, it will shave time off your trip and dollars off your gas bill. Enjoy the view of the sound on a quick trip rather than stare at a... More
