Easy on, easy off. Arrived there early, so we stopped in for a quick bite at the diner. PACKED with families that were getting bites for the kids before the trip. The bathrooms are clean, though. Also an ATM.
The boat was easy to get on and off. We picked up a first class ticket to go over. We dropped off our luggage early, and were able to walk around the dock for a half hour. The in classes on the ship in first class is-air conditioning, you can sit outside in the very front of the boat like Titanic, and there are a few comfortable couches to sit on. If those things aren't important to you, save the $ 10/ticket.
We boarded on time, and when we got into first class, there were the snooty, turned up nosed people who were laying down on the whole couch that fit 8 people to sit on. Others who arrived early tried to take up 4 seats to themselves. When we asked if we could sit in 2 of the seats they put their luggage on, it was an imposition for them. I guess this is what you expect from island residents, so full of themselves. It didn't bother us in the slightest.
The bloody mary's from the bar were a good way to start the trip, but they are $ 10 each in a plastic cup. A bit expensive for what you get, but they have a captive audience. Bring your own food and drink for the 1 hour trip. The couches were nice and comfortable on the return trip.
It was a nice crisp morning, and we went outside to enjoy the fresh air. One nice perk was passing the slower ferries, and seeing the faces of all their passengers that wished they were on our boat. Easy off, and our luggage was waiting for us the minute we stepped off the ship.
To my followers:
If the weather is bad, or it is a really hot day, spend the $ 10 and get a first class ticket. It is worth it.
Also, the parking is bad, and lots fill up quick. If you get there early, there is a house down the street that have parking for $ 5 less per day, but you have to coordinate dropping off your passengers, bags, etc, and it really isn't worth it.
