Vehicles: Priced depending on the length of your vehicle and your destination. Maximum length allowed is 60 feet. No one is allowed sleep or eat in their vehicles.
Cabins: Fares for the cabin are charged per unit. So 4 people sharing a cabin pay the same as one person. Cabin fares are add-ons to regular fares. Some cabins have a toilet, shower, and linens.( Or you may have to rent them)
