Commercial Accommodations

Drivers of units travelling under a commercial booking can choose to purchase a commercial berth or upgrade to a single occupancy cabin, which is subject to availability at the time of sailing.  

A berth is a single bunk in a shared occupancy cabin. Any drivers travelling on the same sailing that wish to share a cabin should jointly present themselves to Reception once on board.  

Drivers also have the option to upgrade to a single occupancy cabin, including a pet friendly cabin, for an additional fee. Upgrades are on a first-come, first-served basis based on booking sequence.

A 15% Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) will be applied to accommodations.

If an upgrade is not available, drivers can choose to wait and travel on the next sailing that has upgrade availability. No additional fee for choosing to wait will be applied. Drivers also have the option to travel without accommodations and receive a full refund for their berth.

How is the upgrade fee calculated? 
The upgrade fee is based on the difference between the price of the commercial berth and the normal price of the cabin. There is a price differential between day and night rates; however, the price is standardized to the lower 2-berth price regardless of whether a 2-berth or 4-berth option is assigned. 

Can I book an upgrade if I’m booking a premium reservation? 
Yes, customers can choose to add either a berth or a cabin upgrade to a premium reservation at the time of booking. In the event of a sailing cancellation or vessel switch, accommodations are not guaranteed. 

Is it possible to stay in my truck during the crossing? 
No, Transport Canada regulations prohibit anyone from remaining on vehicle decks while the vessel is at sea.
