Bluebridge Cook Strait Ferries are super excited to announce their newest and largest ship – the Connemara – has arrived!
Connemara provides all the best bits you have come to know and love from Bluebridge, including our great Kiwi service, freshly prepared food, free Wi-Fi, a dedicated kids’ area, and move private cabins with ensuite for that extra personal space.
You can book now to sail on the Connemara from 16 February. The Connemara will be replacing the Strait Feronia’s schedule so those who have a booking with us on the Feronia after this date will be sailing on our new ship.
The Connemara also has dedicated dog-friendly cabins. That’s right; dogs can travel onboard Connemara with their owner! . A Cook Strait first, we hope this news is as exciting for you as it is for us!
Book one of the two or four-bed dog-friendly cabins– maximum 2 dogs per cabin. Plus, travellers will also have access to the communal outside dog exercise area which is perfect for them to stretch their legs and get some fresh air. Please note that for the safety and comfort of all passengers, dogs are not allowed in the main passenger areas of the ship (except certified assistance dogs) and all dogs must be kept on a lead when outside of the cabin.
