It's easy to book, easy to get to, easy to board, easy easy easy! It's that simple. It beats the hell out of the NJTP and I-95. It's very comfortable on board, relax, nap, watch for some dolphins. Do it!

What a great way to get from DE to NJ! Saved a lot of unpleasant driving & the ferry ride was very relaxing. We even saw a pod of dolphins! Very reasonable & easy form of transport.

Biking on the roads will be fine. I know there is a fee for passengers, not sure if they charge for the bike. I do recall a bike rack on the lowest deck.
