Our trip was in 2009, and while there wasn't any assigned time we were aware of, the captain met with us and set a time. We all gathered at an assigned spot at the assigned time and were escorted to our motorhomes.

We were given 15 minutes to walk and feed our dogs. Then everyone gathered at the meeting point. The escort did a head count to be sure everyone was present and were escorted back to the main passenger area.

It may not be standard practice to allow people to visit their pets, and it may no longer be allowed, but at least 2 people posting here were allowed to do it.

The ferry ride is at least 6 hours long. Any special techniques for keeping food cold.
In order to avoid defrosting our motorhome fridge, we turn it off on Sunday night when we go to bed and back on in the morning when we get up. Typically, we will start at about 35 degrees. 8 hours later, when we turn the fridge back on, the temperature will be 40 to 41. Ice cream and other frozen foods are still frozen.

You should be well within safe zones during your ferry trip. Good luck.

My fridge will operate on batteries for at least 14 hrs. Found this out by mistake when I left it on 12v while boondocking. Usually have it on Propane when I am not getting power to the batteries. The fridges in my Monacos had an auto select but they were propane/120v only. Think the 120 was pff the inverter bit not really certain. Perhaps not because it would never default to propane as long as the inverter was producing 120v.

Have been to NFLd many times but never took the ferry. Want to do that but my wife says she will fly with the dog and meet me on the other side. We have had our RVs on many ferries but never for 12 or more hours. Think.the 6 hr trip would be ok with wife.

Love Newfies. Great friendly people with super sense of humor and sharp wit. At least all I have met are this way. I suggest people have a visit to the Rock on thier bucket list.

x2 x3 and x4 on the Dry Ice. A lot of grocery stores still carry it. Last time we used it Walmart is where we got it at. Just remember to not to touch it with bare skin, it will burn you but it does last and keep things cold longer.
