      Trip to orkney
      • Rough seas. Staff were lovely. Check in for onward journey had a hiccup in that we were only booked on leg 1 not leg 2 but staff quickly rectified it maybe something to check if like us you are returning to a different port

      Good company to travel with
      • An easy trip, helpful staff. We had a nice cabin, clean and tidy. One down side the lack of gluten free food.
