With zero notice, the CAT cancelled our return trip, leaving us stranded in Nova Scotia and forcing us to find our own way

The staff at the gate and guiding us toward the vehicle loading area were great! Then we had a very nice ride. No motion sickness for me!
Pleasing seating and entertainment.

The Cat itself, once we knew when and where to board, was nice/above average and a memorable experience for our family. The onboard staff and amenities were nice, and there were plenty of spots to explore to make the 3.5 hr crossing totally comfortable. With that being said, there were some significant negatives:

1) Bar Harbor signs/instructions and space for boarding absolutely sucked. Staff on-site were nice enough, but if you’re paying >$500 for a family of 3 (with vehicle) the process should be crystal clear and way more efficient.

2) for the cost, and likelihood of arriving feeling sea sick, there should be something (even bottled water) provided as complimentary for travellers. The boat also ONLY accepts US $ and credit for overpriced and mediocre snacks and drinks. Again, for $500+ for 3 people a couple of bottles of water would have gone a long way:

3) Yarmouth, NS - let’s be honest, unless you live there, there’s no reason to visit or stay there. It’s an awful location in NS and to get to the nearest town where residents aren’t sharing 1 set of teeth you need to drive on horribly maintained 1-lane highways through death traps of pot holes and wild game. Not to mention, disembarking from the CAT took us well over an hour of idling in a line up to get through customs. The process is horribly inefficient and you can easily count on adding 3 hours to your voyage once you’re off the ferry to get back to civilization.

In summary, we really enjoyed our time on the CAT itself, but likely will never do it again as there was zero time saving benefit nor economical benefit opting for sea sickness vs driving home.

Planning a driving trip to Prince Edward Island & Nova Scotia, thought we might have to skip Cape Breton due to time constraints-then I found the CAT! Flew into Boston & drove to PEI then Cape Breton & Nova Scotia, we were able to skip about a thousand miles and spend three nights in Cape Breton by taking the CAT back to Bar Harbor. The ferry experience was well organized. Food & drink were available, seating was plentiful and comfortable. No movie was played in the front seating area (bar?) where things were very peaceful. Regular movie in the center & kid movie in the back. Passengers were allowed outside the back section of the ferry. We skipped the bingo games but attended the tour-very entertaining & interesting. Arriving at Bar Harbor customs moved swiftly. Save money by reserving your space early, we saved about 1/4 the regular fee. Highly recommend.

Great boat great staff great captain and crew BUT
Tortured for 2 hours with no where to hide by an awful movie and it’s soundtrack being played throughout the ship with no where to hide onboard. Overall an outrageous assault on one’s senses. My advice is to bring sound cancelling earphones if you chose to take the CAT. Really too bad.

I've been on this ferry four times with a vehicle and zero issues. It's clean, organized, and very comfortable. The staff is pleasant, the bistro food was better than I thought it would be, and our trips have been smooth and on time. We look forward to our next trip on the ferry and are very happy "the CAT is back" after COVID-19.

The Cat is an experience. We enjoyed our voyage; the ship is clean and the organization of bringing your car on board is excellent. It's a long ride to Bar Harbor so bring a book or watch a movie which I think they provide.

Took the CAT from Yarmouth, NS to Bar Harbor, ME in Oct 2022. It was very easy to get on and off the ship. I was expecting more activities on the ship like more shopping than one shop and thought a nice restaurant would be on the ship instead cafeteria type styles-expensive to buy anything on ship. All kinds of different options for seating and very comfortable and clean! Lots of room as it was not close to being full...that is what it felt like. It was much more pricey to go on than I initially thought it would be when I had the idea. After crunching the numbers, we decided on it as a treat and it was very comfortable. I enjoyed it. On other ships I had been outside most times but it wasn't all that inviting on this ship to be on deck. I sat at the front and did see a group of dolphins jump for about 1 minute. The lady who assisted with the wheelchair elevators is very crusty.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We do offer three different options for eateries onboard, Sip Cafe at Sea, Scotia Market and the Forchu Lounge. On select days we offered entertainment, Trivia at Sea, Bingo at Sea and live music. We are glad that you had the opportunity to join us onboard The CAT and that you enjoyed your trip. We hope to welcome you back onboard again soon.

Rode the CAT twice in August. Amazing staff! My kids even got a private tour of the captain's navigation area. First trip was so smooth we didn't even realize we were sailing. The second trip had rougher seas, but still very manageable. Food was surprisingly good. Entire ship very very clean, including bathrooms! Onboard movies were annoying, but I had earplugs. Onboard entertainment on the way back was an added bonus! No Wi-Fi, despite what we expected. Very comfortable seats and plenty of space to walk around. Download those movies ahead of time!

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We love travelling with families! We are glad you enjoyed the food and entertainment. The Forchu Lounge offers a quiet space, if you are not interested in movies. Although we do not have WIFI onboard we offer a business centre to those who would like to access emails. We look forward to welcoming you back onboard again soon.
