The 4 of us decided to go on Spirit of Tasmania for an experience and adventure over to Tassie rather than flying, and we took our car because of the recent sales campaign so it was slightly cheaper than flying & hiring a car. From Melbourne we had to queue for about an hour to board the car but other reviews mentioned about that so it wasnt a suprise. We highly recommend getting the cabins instead of the recliners and make sure you pack an overnight bag with toiletries as cabins too small for large bags. the porthole cabins arent really any better than the inside ones unless you want an early view of devonport. Going over weather mild so no sea sickness, but we all found it hard to get to sleep as beds were vibrating with the ship engine. cafe food was like all buffet restaurants so its only OK. The ship has a little shop, pokies area and a silver service restaurant and also two bar areas and Tv's located throughout. In the morning you have to be up early as you leave ship at 06.30 there is a wake up general announcement at 5.50 so don't worry about sleeping in.
Overall worth doing at least once, particularly for convience of having your own car or caravan,but check the weather beforehand to see if you need any motion sickness tablets
