The arrival concourse aboard Ulysses
Unlike the Greek cruise ship we had been on just 7 days before, this ship had an elevator that worked so we were able to pull our luggage around easily. While some of the kids in our group sat in this area and watched everyone's bags, Gail, her Mom and I walked around this deck visiting the pub, the restaurants, the big store, the movie theater and the game room.
No ghosts and no breakfast again. But we were up early in order to head out to the docks for our ferry ride over to Wales. James was in a big hurry to beat the anticipated rush hour. We had already said goodbye to our Irish bus driver Patrick after our city tour the previous day. Today we had a new driver and bigger bus to take us to the docks. It was a good thing we had more room because everyone was now lugging a handful of new shopping bags.
Because there was NO traffic on the roads this morning we arrived at the dockyard terminal much too early . As we pulled up to the front of the terminal I was amazed by the size of our ferry,
. It was as big as an aircraft carrier and looked to be the tallest ship I've ever seen.
We were forced to wait a little over an hour for boarding, but once they started letting people on board we got on quickly and easily. The concourse of the ship was much prettier than our Greek cruise ship and ultra-modern.
