WIGHTLINK hopes to make the holidaymakers' visit to the Isle of Wight this summer as pleasant as possible by employing a team to meet and greet car ferry passengers.

The company has employed cabin attendants to answer any questions passengers may have about their sailing from Portsmouth or about the Isle of Wight and its attractions, festivals and events.

Wightlink’s head of fleet operations Elwyn Dop said: "We know holidays begin for families when they board our ferries, so we thought we would make their journeys even more special this summer. There is so much to see and do on the Isle of Wight and our cabin attendants will help them make the most of their break."

One of the new team, Ben Rue, 20, from Shanklin, said: "I used to love coming to the Isle of Wight on family holidays when I was young, now I’m lucky enough to live here. I’m really looking forward to telling people what makes the Isle of Wight so special."

As of today (Thursday), a cabin attendant will be on duty on each crossing, throughout the week, until September.
