Heading to university or college can be an exciting and nervous time for students. Whether you are looking forward to the student life or preparing for your studies ahead, the late August- early September road trip is an experience in itself.

And what to take with you to get you through the next several months away from home? Don’t worry, take everything! Feel free to block the car because you won’t have to worry about overweight baggage. Go ahead, take fluffy the pillow….your favourite lamp……your good luck cement block……sure, take the kitchen sink (although that might upset your parents).

Just remember, it is highly recommended that you make your reservation as soon as you identify your travel plans to secure your preferred crossing and amenities for the trip. While an advance reservation is not required, customers who make reservations avoid the disappointment of sold out sailings or the unavailability of cabins. Passengers with reservations also get priority for the next available crossing when there are schedule disruptions or weather delays.

To make a reservation, please visit our website, www.marineatlantic.ca. You can also speak with a Reservations Agent by calling our toll-free reservations line at 1-800-341-7981. Marine Atlantic accepts major credit cards, as well as prepaid credit cards that are sold at many retail stores. Full payment is required at the time of booking.

Good luck with your studies and the many experiences that lie ahead. Marine Atlantic looks forward to playing a small part in your journey and welcoming you on board our vessels!
