Virginia Farrelly from Dalry. Posted 5 Apr 2004.
I was about 5 the first time our family went on the ferry. To save money my dad decided to book two bunks - for him, my mother, my brother and i. We didn't get much sleep that night. Both me and brother could not sit down cos we were so excited at the views from the ship and being on a ferry. My dad was in the Merchant Navy and he kept talking about what good sea legs he had. Even he didn't have very good sea legs when we failed to sleep and my brother was sick everywhere in the tiny cabin. I thought that our cabin would have portholes in it like in the films, and was very disappointed when we had none at all to see out of.
