Frequently Asked Questions
What is the boarding process?
Boarding for each departure will begin roughly 90 minutes prior to the departure time, and last until 15 minutes before scheduled departure - at this point our gates close and the ship begins its departure process. All passengers need boarding pass ready for boarding. For those traveling with a vehicle: We ask that only one passenger drives the vehicle on board while the others in the party board on the passenger ramp. Exceptions will be made for those with special needs or small children. The driver will need their own boarding pass as well as the vehicle pass at this time. For those traveling without a vehicle: Walk-on passengers will board on the passenger boarding ramp. We ask that the first round of boarding be reserved for our passengers with special needs or children, followed by those in the premier cabin, and then general boarding. Once on board, seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you will need special assistance in boarding, please let one of our Customer Service Representatives know upon checking in.
If I purchase a ticket for my car do I need to buy a ticket for me and my passengers?
Vehicle tickets do not include the driver; passenger and vehicle tickets must be purchased separately, and every passenger ticket guarantees a seat inside the cabin. Under United States Coast Guard regulations, passengers are not allowed to stay in their vehicles on the car deck while the ship is underway.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
