Tasmanian Spirit

Tasmanian Spirit, a cruise ship between Melbourne and the German port of Tasmania, runs from two ports each day, day shift and night shift.

The day shift sets sail for the day, the night shift is the night shift, the sailing time is about 10 hours.

Official ticket website https://www.spiritoftasmania.com.au, the earlier the ticket price is lower, usually the ticket price is 80-100 yuan per person, each car is also about 100 yuan, the promotion season may be cheaper, and the peak season may be a large increase in prices.

Unfortunately, we decided late, just as Tazhou is about to enter the cherry harvest season, the ticket is more expensive than usual, two people 320, plus the car 110, spent a whole 430!

Really heartache, if not to love the car to transport past, it is better to fly to save money and time ah, I hope this journey is worth it!

As we boarded the ship, it was just Melbourne Marathon Day, especially worried that the closure would affect the boarding, so we set out early for wharf.

A lot of people on the same boat thought the same. When we got to the wharf, there were long car dragons in front of us.

Finally it is our turn to move, according to the instructions, first into the security area.

The staff asked to open the hood and the trunk and check carefully whether they had carried fruit, seeds, other animals and plants, and so on.

After checking, pass a red check card and hang it on the rearview mirror in front of the car.

Continue to enter the ticket inspection area, return the inspection card, check the ticket, will drive on board.

Driving, along the slope, into the big cruise, feel special fresh and interesting!

The ship's cabin was full of all kinds of cars. Ordinary cars, pickup trucks with tent trailers, backpackers' SUVs, etc., docked very close and dense under the guidance of staff.

After extinguishing the engine leave the car, take your belongings with you, because you can't return to the car to pick up anything until you arrive at the terminal port of Devon.

Our car parked on the sixth deck, and when we went upstairs, we looked at the instructions that the 1-6 floors were all parking decks. How many cars should we be able to load!

Because we bought the most ordinary tickets, daily tickets (day ticket), no seats, we decided to stroll around.

As soon as he entered the seventh deck, he saw the kitchen and dining room, boarding just in the morning, and many people lined up to buy breakfast.

Before we got on board, we thought we didn't buy extra seats, a little worried about whether to sit directly on the deck, whether it was necessary to carry another small bench, like domestic train to buy no seats. See the ninth and tenth floor of the public rest area, really by their own ideas stupid cry, ha, five doors and eight types of seats, you choose.

Unwittingly, after nine hours of sailing, the coastline of Tazhou was looming, and the captain suddenly opened the radio:

Dear passengers, we meet a group of lovely whales jumping on the starboard side of the ship...

We rushed out together, looked at the right side of the boat and took pictures. We were lucky to see the big tail beating the sea in the distance, but it was too far to get it.

Ten hours of voyage, coming to the end, arrived at Devon Port, Tazhou, just sunset, the whole world was shrouded in a gentle golden yellow.

By the time we drove out of the ship, the night had come, and a little reluctant to look back at the Spirit, it docked quietly in the port, waiting for the next voyage.
