    Better grab a seat in the cozy area at the level 8. 60 dollars buffet isn’t worth it.

    If driving between islands, make sure to check in with your vehicle at least an hour before departure.

    Если вы опоздали ( как я), подойдите в кассу, без вопросов поменяют билет за 3$ на следующий рейс. Не опаздывайте!

    Rental car drop-off for keys is a blue-and-white box by the main doors into the passenger terminal.

    If you are dropping off a rental car be sure to arrive at least 90 minutes before your sailing if you want to snag a parking space and a trolley.

    Best to travel on the earliest ship. The sea is calm and the sunrise is just beautiful.
