“They're hard to contact on the phone. Don't bother trying on the weekend or in the evening. I use them once or twice a year traveling to Freeport from Ft. Lauderdale. I like the boat and the ride is usually smooth unless it's really rough in the Gulf Stream. The seats are comfortable. Don't expect to go outside on deck or do much walking around the ship. It moves quite fast and it's a good idea to stay in your seat.”
“Make sure to buy a ticket for the bus while on the boat. Its $26 and takes you into town and back to the boat.”
