On the way over we were told to be there very early for our 9 am departure time. We waited for several hours in a room that resembled a warehouse. The check in crew were very grumpy and not friendly at all. When we finally got on board and took off we had no idea what we were in for. Within an hour of leaving the port 4 out of 6 in our party were repeatedly vomiting as was at least half of the passengers on the ferry. The staff were very helpful in handing out vomit bags the entire 3 hour journey. On the return we were much more prepared. We all took Dramamine and none of us got sick even though the ride was just as rough if not rougher than the ride over. I just thought if the ferry is routinely that rough that somewhere on the website or in the passenger literature they might warn you and tell you to prepare. It was awful to have your friends vomiting for 2 hours straight. The ferry was not cheap either. Two first class adults (without luggage fees) cost $450 round trip. Also there is very little selection of food available for purchase on board the boat. Mainly just snack and drinks are available and there is only one cashier to service the whole boat. I will not be taking this ferry again!
