  • "Great crossing"

    Had the pleasure of making the crossing on the Manannan Cat, an impressive ship. Reserving seats didn't prove necessary as there are enough seats during peak times. Anyone can take up a free seat in the lounge section (the executive lounge is policed more firmly). They had relative recent movies on in 2 screening rooms, which our kids enjoyed. Have not tried the traditional ferry.
