    On the ferry heading home now.

    Thought we would try reclining seats. First my newspaper was stolen before I could read it,. then early morning we went for a walk and when we came back Carols pillow had disappeared and there was now a man sleeping on the floor in front of us, on Carols pillow! I was so outraged I kicked him and instructed him to move on - which scared me more than him and after swearing at me he agreed. The worst part there was a serial snoring maniac (all night) two seats in front of us.

    I also stood on my laptop accidently and can only see half the screen whilst I write this!

    Oh for the lazy days and fun at Marjal!

    i always pay for a seat but as said they and the rooms they are in are horrible .find a quiet place elsewhere and grab a snooze. have had a cabin but dont think its worth the extra .

    for us it is worth paying for a cabin on the longer crossings, at least we can sleep proper knowing that any items we have carried with us on the boat are safe, and we can start our journey refreshed and washed once we depart the boat, not to mention the fact that we can make our own drinks of coffee or tea throughout the voyage when we want

    I am sat in a Commodore cabin this very minute in Portsmouth.

    Horrific journey down here with hold ups on M25 and M3 but now checked in ready to sail at 5pm.

    Brought some beer with me which is cooling in the cabin fridge.:thumb:
