Rather nervous being first time to board such a large car ferry. But we needn't have been as everything was so efficiently run it went like clockwork. The ferry itself was very comfortable with much to offer all types of patrons.

Took car to Tassie on Ferry on a Tuesday night and returned on a Sunday night. Tuesday night crossing was not full and was comfortable. Got car on early and was near front to exit in Devonport quickly. Staff are friendly and helpful. It really isn't any hassle as the staff have done this so many times they have it... More

The ferries have been revamped and modernised. They are much better than the older versions. We took our caravan to Tasmania and found everything was pretty simple. You have to be aware though that once you are on the Ferry nothing comes cheap. Food and drinks are very expensive and you would do well to consider taking your own with... More

On our previous journey over before the refurbishment we sat / laid on the recliners, which was a great way to save money, but terribly uncomfortable. We were very lucky to get a great deal on taking our car and sharing a twin berth porthole accommodation. We wanted to take our own car for our journey into country Victoria instead... More

Not a lover of sailing. Refurbishment is very nice but one BIG mistake is charging for the movies. Famlies spend enough to get on this Ferry and by the time you buy meals etc you shuld not be expected to pay for a movie. Since they started to charge for this the theatre is almost empty so not really worth... More

We received a great discount and travelled to Tassie and back with our car, slept in a porthole cabin, all for around $700 (for two with car). We ate at the licensed smorgasbord restaurant on board which was quite good, and afterwards we went to the cinema and watched a movie. We had a play on the pokies, another drink,... More

I took day pass for sprit of Tasmania from Melbourne to davenport and then return. The trip was really fun. You can enjoy beer and wine on board, watched movies in on-board theater. There is plenty of things to to do on board. I could also take my car with me which I believe is a great advantage as car... More

We were fortunate to take advantage of a great discount on offer during November for our return overnight trip on the Spirit of Tasmania with our car and a deluxe porthole cabin. For anyone wishing to travel this way, I would strongly recommend the night cruise, boarding from 5pm, departing at 7.30pm, and arriving at 6.30am from both Port Melbourne... More
