It is a few minutes to the ferry, but don't count on speed in the dining room. They would benefit from a manager who could train the waitresses on efficient service. You wait for a menu, you wait for a drink (even water) and, boy, you wait for your food. Oh, yes, and you wait for your bill.
It wasn't so busy for dinner, but the waitress couldn't seem to deal with remembering orders or what was in the food. Does not give you confidence in the chef if the servers have never sampled items, or even seem interested.
Breakfast of toast and coffee would be faster, I hoped. Hah. Not a chance. Good thing I'd packed for the ferry already.

I expected it to be like an ...

The ship is anchored a short distance off shore so we will be brought to the docks by zodiac. Today is a dry landing; you don't need to wear your rubber boots. The zodiac ride is short over calm seas and we are on land in no time. Getting to the lighthouse requires ...
... very modern and comfortable no need to get a cabin for the day trip but I think we would pay a little going for a full recliner with a foot rest. The main ones do recline but after 4 hours your back does start to ache and you legs go numb, hahaha.
