Travelled recently on Ulysses. Whilst still think she is overall better - specially built for route etc, it is clear hardly any money has been spent on her since she entered service, and she is dated inside now..
Decor boring, and why have such a small cafeteria boylan's place and then brioche doree small next door to each other?
Sten crew definitely better. Lithunian crew ok, but different culture sticks out a mile on Annwyl irish ship - Irish ways are best say Irish ferries - what a joke of a comment if you employ foreign staff and register in Limassol.
THe upper lounge is now out of use to Club Class only.
The bar is big but a bit dark and boring.
Indeed the whole ship is rather dark.
Exit to outside deck is not easy.
Food limited and expensive.
Booked an EV charging point on board but not given one and no apologies given.
Unloading form ship took 40 minutes and a further 30 minutes exiting port - with no security or id check.. This mainly fault of Stena Ports.
Holyhead port is a mess - HSS parts everywhere- poorly marked out lines, long distance to berths, poor car and foot pax embarkation procedures. Stena staff now appear to be parking near old hss berth. No foot pax gangways.
