Having not been to Ireland for some 30 years I was impressed by the improvement in the comfort, accommodation and catering standard on board ship. Booked a cabin on the night return trip and slept very well. No complaints at all. Thoroughly recommended by me as the best and shortest sea route to Ireland.
