    Loistava hinta-laatu-suhde, kaikki tarvittava yöpymishytistä löytyi, suihku ja vessa ja sänky petivaatteineen. Laivan ravintola 5-kannella palveli iltamyöhään ja koska ilma oli todella kuuma, siellä pääsi ihanasti viilentymään vrt. laivan sisälämpötilaan. Aamupala oikein ok, kaikki meni jouhevasti ja välillä ihan unohti, ettei laiva liiku.

    Verhot

    Huone muuten ihan ok! Ikkunaverho niin lyhyt että ei saanut huonetta pimeäksi. Ulkovalaisin oli lisäksi lähellä Hytin ikkunaa joten pimennysverhoja ehdottaisin. Aamupala oli hyvä ja hiljaista oli.. Hinta Laatusuhde sopiva

    Corresponding with the price

    Great for the price, like staying in the Sweden-ferry. Not the newest furnishing but ok. Good breakfast!

    If you ever wonder what it would be like to spend a night on a boat than give this place a try It's great for 1 or 2 nights but for me, I won't take a cruise too small Secretly I'm disappointed there were no waves at night to lull me to sleep

    A Night on the Sea without the Motion

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the S/S Bore! Our cabin was spotless and I very much appreciated the crisp linens provided. Making our own beds wasn't a problem. The breakfast that was included was by no means abundant (wasn't replenished as rapidly as needed), but everything was fresh and wholesome and we were satisfied.

    Good access to ferry terminals

    This place is a good location for the ferry terminals (which is what I wanted.) The staff were OK and answered my questions, though not overly friendly. The cabin, being an older ships cabin was very compact... Would have been quite cramped with 2 people. I would think for 84 euros a night that the bed would have been made up, but I had to do it myself. Breakfast is a fairly basic continental breakfast.
