Horror story

by Cy

The ferry is a death trap waiting to happen. Exits are chained and locked and the main lounge is crowded with one small, narrow exit through which passengers push and shove and trample and generally show little or no regard for fellow passengers.

The Egypian women are the worst at this. The one, small, narrow door open onto the lounge thus creating a bottleneck and that leads down onto a narrow, steep stairway that eventually ends on the main car deck.

During our 2005 trip, I was not amused and wondered what would happen if the vessel capsized with all onboard. Not many months after we returned home, such an event did happen with loss of life.

My advice, stay away from the fast ferry - it is dangerous and the crew were not much help.

Ugh, what a mess!
