I traveled on two of them last week , out to Cherbourg on Horizon and back to Dublin on Epsilon .I have always gone on the Pont Aven and i have to say the Vissentini are pretty  good, nice and steady and hardly any vibration due to the engine room and accomadation  be seperated  . Epsilon even arrived an hour early in Dublin due to favorable conditions .
