Most passenger ships have decent  buffets, restaurants and other catering. The main exception being ferries on very short crossings.


I know this is topic drifting a bit but are there any nominations for the shortest ferry crossings offering catering? I nominate the Lymington-Yarmouth (Isle of Wight) route (40 mins).

Feel free to move this to a new thread should this get much of a response.

Here's a further explanation.  How many incorrect images can you spot?

The 'weird, wrong-sided car' was definitely wrong-sided, as it appeared to be floating in the air just off the Dover Cliffs (or whatever cliffs those actually were), like Road Runner before he realises there's no ground beneath his feet.

I spotted ...
- the boat train for Newhaven leaving from Waterloo, and arriving back at King's Cross
- Southern refunding the taxi fare for passengers using the Newhaven Marine link in US dollars
- Overhead electrification to Newhaven!

aaaahhh the dear old "Senlac"
Back in about 1973 or 4 I remember boarding a coach outside my old school in Doncaster at midnight, trundling through the night to join a 7am sailing of the old girl, across to Dieppe. Thence train to Paris, transfer across and onward train to Dinard. All great adventures for an eight year old!

For cross (English) channel work, a ferry is unlikely to be a barque or brig in more modern times.
Granted in earlier times it would have been, as would all medium distant sea routes have been.
Then we come on to clippers, etc.
