Ive done my own EU on the engine room of the royal Daffodil!!
I was involved in the engine refit about 5 yrs ago, doing all the pipework. Then one of the engines packed in while in service and i had to board her at woodside with all my tools and spares to do a running repair while on a crossing!!
You wouldnt beleive some of the places i get into!!

River cruise is 3.80 one way 6.50 return. Cheaper to get a saveaway think they around 4 quid.

Except you can't use Saveaways on River cruises; you also can't use them until after 09:29. Which essentially means, you can only use them on the 09:40 direct departure from Seacombe, and then between the hours of 16:15 and 19:05 on the evening direct commuter services.

A saveaway is great value if you are planning on doing a lot of travelling/if your total ticket cost works out higher, dependent on the times you want to travel, they are 3.30 for a single are and 4.50 for an all-area's pass.

You need an all-area's saveaway if you wish to use it on the ferries.
