Mrs Gwilliam-Phillips said "This is the 3rd time we have used this service. its very easy, with helpful staff. The transfer on football days is just as easy as the company have access to the port side roads. most importantly they provide good value for money. We also used the valeting service which we were very pleased with."

Mr Smith said "The return transfer was disappointing. Those with early disembarking times from the ship were held on a cramped coach in very warm weather while awaiting travellers with later disembarking times. This potentially delayed peoples onward journies by up to 45-60 mins and seemed to cause a degree of frustration with travellers. When all spare seats on the coach were filled, people's frustration was further compounded, when a minibus then arrived to transport the last group of 5-6 people to disembark the ship back to the parking compound in relative comfort. Surely the shuttle service that operates for the outward journey could be equally employed for the return, given that passangers are obliged to leave the ship at time allovcated by the cruise company"
