Title says it all. Other than that, a good, fast ride. Food subpar. Website massively confusing. Seats comfortable.

We traveled from Neil to Portblair in Makruzz. Lot of hype is created about this ferry but in reality there is nothing great about it .
We traveled in 3rd week of March and it was late by an hour , also being a big boat getting in , out and collecting the luggage will take lot of time .
Worst part is there was a cockroach in one of our seats and my family fell sick after having a puff from the shop there .
Green ocean is way better then this in terms of price , cleanliness and interiors& seating .

This must be one of the best ways to reach Havelock comfortably and in a short time. Clean and comfortable seats , good food available onboard. Helpful staff. Online hasselfree booking makes travel easy.

Staff is too polite to control the overexcited tourists who keep moving around constantly much to the dislike of the ones who want to rest or sleep.

The handing over of luggage to the alighting passengers needs to be made more systematic.....Else everything is good.

I took Makruzz to travel to and fro between Havelock island and port blair and both times, the ferry left right on time and reach well before time. The interiors are very comfortable and the boat doesn't roll or pitch a lot.
The online seat selection was disappointing though. It showed seats are blocked even though they were available when we actually travelled.
