What fun sitting at the front watching our trip the whole way. Comfortable seating and great snacks available. We chose first class which really only provides early seating but I'm bad for waiting in lines. Only wish that we had more time on Nantucket.

Our family of 16 took this Christmas cruise on the brand new Holland America ship. The comfort and decor of this ship is exceptional. Many activities centered around music venues makes for a memorable time. We can highly recommend this vacation experience.

This is a typical ferry ride where you get on and have to vacate your vehicle while traveling. Trip does not take very long.

Took from Hyannis to Nantucket. Check in was quick and easy. Parking was very accessible and reasonably priced. Ferry left on time. Had to change reservation. No issues experienced. You check luggage and that was quickly available.
