For the most part ferry travel is like any other mass transit experience: dulled-down citizens gazing at nothing, eating, reading, talking too loud, snoozing.
The difference, for me, is that it’s very peaceful to be on the water, which alleviates the nuisance.
The other difference is that you can actually get a whole bench to yourself on a ferry.
