Well the return trip itself is good, very efficient and pretty comfortable. On board it is pretty expensive and on the way to Tasmania the main restaurant was fully booked as there were a bunch of Rolls Royce owners travelling so we had no choice as to go buffet restaurant. Nor the food nor the service was great. We took a meal and a dessert and had to pay more than the specials offer for am meal, dessert en a drink. Our drink (alcohol) was on top of that as that was not included which is nowhere mentioned, so basically we had to take a soft drink and throw it away to be cheaper ..... We skipped breakfast as we were told there were plenty of options on arrival by fellow travelers. On the way back we did not dine at all and we had a great lunch and took our own food on board. Highly recommended!

Just had a meal if that is what you call it on the spirit of Tasmania traveling from Melbourne to Devonport.

Absolutely disgusting.

Not only the meal Of Undercooked vegetables and tough meat but the $31 per plate as well.

Give us a break.

Take my advice and pack a feed before you get on board. You will save heaps.

A few wraps or a bucket of KFC and some refreshments and you would be the envy of every poor. Soul who ate here tonight.

Breakfast be buggered.

I'll wait till I'm off the boat.

Your loss TT LINE.

Quite an experience, a little crowded due to Easter but a rather nice way of getting to Tassie. Having your own vehicle is a plus when travelling and the staff of the Spirit were very accommodating.

If you really need to take your car to Tasmania then obviously you have to take the ferry. Otherwise flying is so much cheaper. The cost of the rooms is very high and you only get a bed and en suite. There are no tea or coffee making facilities or TVs or anything. I am sure that they do their best with the boarding and disembarking but it is a slow process and there is a lot of waiting in your car. At least at the airport you can keep walking around while you wait!
