Touring: Ferries
The purpose of a ferry is to transport passengers or goods from A to B,  across the world's seas. Many ferry companies only operate within the territory of their home nation although others have ferries in operation worldwide and even sell space and charter other company's ferries. Catamarans have halved the crossing times of conventional ferries and provide a quick alternative to crossing the water. Overnight trips usually involve sleeping in a cabin onboard and the captain will often turn down the engines in order to eliminate noise. 

Ferries usually consist of five, six or seven decks. The lower two decks are usually used for storing cars, vans and lorries during a crossing. The upper decks are reserved for cabins, restaurants, bars and other forms of entertainment. During rough weather, ferries are subject to cancellation until the weather subsides.
