Boarded the Spirit of Tasmania today 23rd April 2018. They were very accommodating with helping my disabled husband. Cabin was very clean and the beds were comfy. Food was tasty. Very easy to get around. Looking forward to our return trip.

Overall a smooth crossing both to and from Tasmania. The food selection was good though pricey for what it was. Our car was loaded and unloaded very quickly on the way over despite a delay with the incoming ship from Tassie. The way back wasn’t...More
