Having just travelled on Galica I thought it would be useful to share some pictures and experiences. I was booked on the 2145 Cherbourg-Portsmouth service on 14/12. Despite the advice for checkin to be 90 minutes before, I arrived approximately 75 minutes before and it looked like they had only just started checking people in. There were around 20-25 cars on the crossing. Car were loaded onto deck 5 starboard. Lorries were towards the front. Headed up to deck 7 to find my cabin for the night. I'm back over on Galicia later in the month in a 2 berth Commodore, so this time I went for one of the 4 berth inside to compare wheat they mean by the "superior mattress, bed linen and towels". As no guides were given out at check in it was a case of having to follow the signs to locate the cabin. The signage used is familiar to those that have been on Stena vessels The cabin itself was clean, one fixed bed on display, the rest of the bunks tucked away. The matresses are of a memory foam type, supportive pillows and the usual bedsheets etc. There was a pull out shelf under the bed, not sure what it was for, maybe to assist with putting shoes on, perhaps someone can enlighten me. I was able to have a look around the vessel which was extremely quiet. Some areas have doors to identify the cabin types: Unfortunately the bar was closed: (contd.)
