  • "Parking is a bit ridiculous "

    We didn't have any issues on our trip bar the initial parking on the boat. Going out we'd used a different company (condor) and it was preferable. I was asked to park on the edge of the row (So I had the side of the boat next to the drivers door. I literally had to climb out onto a net, as it was stopping you falling through the gap in the floor better the edge of the boat and my car! My car door wven got caught on the net, so i was balancing on the net / side of boat, like a cargo net ezcercise, while trying to untangle my car door! Just a joke! It was ridiculous. The passengers on the other side struggled too given the lack of space between my car and the one next to us. Bearing in mind people are trying to get out with bags, there was less room than the tightest of spaces in a car park. I won't be travelling with this company again. I'm surprised my car didn't get dented. The guys loading the cars were pretty rude too. The people working on the drinks/ snack bar were really friendly and super helpful. Everything else was fine, and I can even forgive the odd broken chair ie couldn't recline them back or forth.
