Llanelli Star - - Getaway -

■ THERE’S some­thing so re­lax­ing about trav­el­ling with kids by ferry.

You can load up the car (and roof box and bike rack in our case!) with loads of lug­gage, drive on with very lit­tle wait­ing around then sit back and watch the waves.

There’s en­ter­tain­ment in­clud­ing a pan­tomime, quizzes, bingo and sto­ry­time plus a soft play area, a cinema and sev­eral places to eat and drink and shops to peruse.

There’s also a vir­tual game kids can play us­ing the wi-fi, and a trea­sure hunt chal­lenge around the ferry that they can col­lect from the re­cep­tion desk.

I thor­oughly rec­om­mend book­ing a cabin, even for day cross­ings, as it gives you a place to have a lie down, make a cup of tea and sit and watch the telly too.

Disem­barka­tion was quick too, and the five-hour drive to Royan a breeze as the mo­tor­ways are so good to drive on.
