The day ferry is closer to the 6 hours in good weather.
The night ferry is closer to 8 in good weather.
They reduce speed at night due to lower visibility.
We always cross at night and get a berth going either direction.
Pull on, sleep the night and roll off the ferry rested and showered ready for a full day of driving.
I would recommend getting a cabin even on a day crossing. It gives you a place to put your stuff, have a nap if you want or just get a little privacy on the crossing. Well worth 55 bucks on a day cross. We always get one.
