CROSSING THE DIVIDE

Ferry operators are rethinking the way they market their services and the type of customers they wish to attract. The result is that much of the style and many of the facilities formerly associated only with cruise ships are now also to be found on modern ferries. The most visible effect of the trend, which began on Baltic ferries, is the fleet of large, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped ships that now ply the North Sea routes. Several vessels from this new breed of cruise ferries are described. The emphasis is upon the communications equipment they carry, including satcoms and public phones.
