Prepare to wait, and then wait some more

The wait time in the ferry terminal wasn't bad - only around 30 minutes after the ferry had arrived at the dock.

After all the cars and trucks were loaded you wait some more. We waited around 3 hours before the ferry even left the station, then there was the 3 hour voyage. We anticipated a whole lot of waiting so it wasn't a huge deal.

The strangest part of the Aqaba ferry experience is collecting your luggage in Aqaba. While in Egypt all travelers throw their luggage into a giant crate.
When you arrive in Jordan it's a free-for-all as people jump into the crate and start grabbing at what is presumably only their luggage. It was a novel experience to say the least.
