The travelling conditions are… pretty awful.
We didn’t realize that choosing 2 couchettes in a shared compartment would mean being stuck in the tiniest cubical possible where 9 people are supposed to sleep and basically live for three nights and two days. It’s just amazingly claustrophobic.
But what just knocked us completely down was… the absence of any sleeping material. Yes, yes, if you want a pillow and something to put on yourself except for your own sweater – pay a small extra, which is just 20€. Fortunately, the majority of travelers have their sleeping bags, but there were some of them who didn’t know about this circumstance, and it can’t be blamed. To know all the details you really should read every page of the SmyrilLine web-site. Surprise!
And just as a bad joke, on our deck (honestly, just like the third-class on Titanic) no one could avoid passing by the posters proposing to upgrade your cabin. Ha-ha.
But where to keep the bags? – you might ask. Because if every person out of 9 brings the bag – there will be no space at all! Smyril Line has thought about it, of course. For a smaaaall extra you can use the luggage boxes. But you will have to re-pay every time you need take something from it.
The only positive point, I would say, are the bathrooms. They are kept in a quite good condition, relatively clean.
