We took the ferry from Penang to Langkawi several times. Also the return trip we made. Every time we got sick on the boat. This is the best solution:
When you go to the Langkawi you can better ask for a ticket in the star class. It will cost you RM 25,- for a one way ticket, but it's much better. You got a very quiet deck with excellent chairs. That was the the first time we didn't get sick.
