Bluebridge, our preferred Cook Strait ferry company, have just taken possession of a new ship – the Connemara.

This impressive ferry will be their fastest, largest and newest ship. At 187 metres long, it comfortably transports 500 passengers.

Plus, it comes with some exciting new and upgraded features.

More cabins than ever before

The Connemara has 120 private cabins, allowing passengers to relax in comfort while crossing the Cook Strait. With a range of cabin sizes, raining from single to four-bed options, there is something for everyone. They’re surprisingly affordable too!

All cabins include:

  • an ensuite
  • air-conditioning
  • beds
  • a power point
  • a desk with chair
  • wall-mounted reading lights
  • hanging space with coat hangers
  • a telephone with wake-up call instructions
  • a wall mirror
  • fresh linen, towels and body wash.

Dog-friendly sailings

Some of these cabins welcome your furry friends along for the ride. Choose from a 2-bed or 4-bed (twin bunk) cabin.

We know that many of our customers travelling with dogs, prefer to have them close during sailings.

If travelling with your dog, you’ll have access to a seperate entrance from the vehicle deck and an exclusive-use outside space available to you, other dogs and their owners.

Now that’s how you look after man’s best friend!

Mobility-friendly access

The Connemara has escalator access between the passenger decks and the main vehicle deck, ensuring all passengers can get around the ship easily. This is a bonus for those in wheelchairs, with prams and with limited mobility.

Of course, all passengers benefit from free onboard WiFi and movies, a fresh-local menu, great Kiwi service and the ability to earn Airpoints Dollars.
