Onboard Facilities

Relax and enjoy a comfortable crossing.

It’s the little things that make a difference.

Sit back and relax or stroll the decks and breathe in the fresh sea air. Catch up on work, connect with friends, or indulge your cravings with an Isle of Wight tea or coffee and a bite to eat. Red Funnel’s onboard facilities were designed to help make every crossing comfortable and enjoyable, no matter where you’re heading. 


On board our Southampton-East Cowes Vehicle Ferries and in our Southampton T1 terminal, you’ll find Red Funnel’s shops – the perfect place to pick out Isle of Wight souvenirs, Red Funnel-branded gifts and last-minute travel essentials. Grab some food and drink for the journey, or choose a memento from your time on the Isle of Wight.

Food & Drink

Famed for our breakfasts, we offer a varied menu of freshly prepared hot food, alongside sandwiches and tasty pasties. You can also enjoy a selection of muffins, cookies and pastries, paired with local Isle of Wight coffee, tea or an indulgent hot chocolate – or simply relax with a glass of wine or beer. On sunny days treat yourself to an Island-made ice cream on the outer deck.

Signature Lounge

Guests travelling on our Vehicle Ferries can upgrade their booking to include Signature Lounge access. Our premium lounge is a quieter, more relaxed space to work, socialise and travel. The lounge serves a range of complimentary drinks and snacks to guests throughout the sailing.
