In recent years, air travel costs have become higher. Although it is faster, it has its limitations. For example, when you travel by plane, you cannot carry a lot of luggage. Also, on an airplane, you’re limited to a small seat for the entire flight (unless you’re paying for a first-class seat!).
If you want a more relaxed way to travel without any restrictions on the amount of luggage you can carry, then you should reserve a seat on a ferry service. The flexibility offered by a ferry service makes it very popular for both international and domestic travel. Some of the advantages of ferry travel are outlined here.
Environmentally friendly: Today a diesel engine can be modified to run on different types of fuel. Here in the Caribbean methanol is produced in Trinidad, and can easily be used in a modified engine on a regional ferry. Using methanol produces negligible pollution in air or water.
When we talk about a ferry, we must understand that it is a type of passenger ship. These ships can be classified according to the number of passengers and the amount of cargo they can carry and the speed at which they can travel. These types are hydrofoils, catamarans and ro-ro. When travelling on a Ro-Ro ferry you can eat in the restaurant or cafeteria, have some fun in the nightclub, relax overnight in your cabin, arrive well awake the next morning after a good breakfast and a visit to the Duty Free shop on board.
