An outside cabin has windows looking out of the ship. An inside cabin has no windows.
A 2-berth cabin has beds for 2 people. A 4-berth cabin has beds for 4 people.
haha thankyou, as i guessed, but is there any difference in comfort or size or decor, i.e is it worth spending the extra???
If you can afford Commodore Class and particularly for an overnight crossing you get 'real' beds rather than bunks, a TV and tea/coffee facilities other than that others are all much the same.
Thankyou thats great help, yes I think we'll just go for the standard cabin, its only really somewhere for my husband to have a sleep as we're doing the 8am crossing from Plymouth to Roscoff and he'll be driving down from Manchester through the night setting off around 2am so he'll need a sleep before we arrive in France.
Is there anything much for myself and 22 month old girl toddler to do onboard whilst hubby sleeps??!!
From memory the sailing lasts about 6 hours during the day which can seem quite a long time to keep a child occupied! There are childrens play areas with a climbing frame / soft ball pit for them to play in, and usually colouring equipment and occasionally a dedicated member of staff to play with groups of small children.
During high season there is emtertainment in the bar area but I wouldn't be sure about that so early in the morning!
There are 2 small cinemas and they always have a film suitable for children but your child may be too young to enjoy that.
Food - plenty of options which can take up some of your time. And of course shopping to keep you occupied!
When we have travelled with our young children I have found the cabin a blessing as there is somewhere secure to return to when they inevitably het tired and bored. We have tended to go for the larger cabins with more room and facility to make a cup of tea and watch the TV. Commodore class also have DVD players which can while away an hour or so.
And if you decide not to drive down during the night there are the usual chain hotels very near the port which is what we do if not taking a night crossing - quite nice to arrive on the ferry and have a decent breakfast which can take up some of the time.
Hope you enjoy your trip.
If we have 2 people traveling and require a 2-berth cabin, when making a booking via internet should we enter 1 or 2 cabins for a 2-berth cabin. We are confused with the number.
Just 1 cabin as they have 2 beds
I found these posts very helpful as like the original poster I am travelling with my other half and 2 little ones (age 3 and 2) on the 8am Plymouth - Roscoff ferry in a few weeks. We can't stay in Plymouth the night before as I'm working. I have just found out the cabins are reduced on daytime crossings, so we managed to book an outside 4 berth with TV and tea/coffee for just £35. The person who helpfully posted about having somewhere to go to if the youngsters are playing up is a very wise person indeed!!!! Not to mention the fact after a 4am start we'll all need a siesta :-)
