This year everything is different. All of a sudden it can't be liquid enough when it comes to choosing a destination. Hamburg/Germany, Sicily/Italy, Outer Hebrides/Scotland.

Having watched the sea (Sicily) and sailed only for 30 minutes (harbourferries in Hamburg), this is going to be a step up the ladder.
I am going to test my stomach, sailing 1h45 from Uig to Tarbert. Lets hope the sea will be as calm as in the photo above, because the experience in the ferry sailing Oostende to Dover was not too pleasant. I remember the bathroom too well. At least I know it is not a good idea to drink coffee before going on a ship. A full Scottish breakfast might not be wise, either.
