The boot is very comfortable, not to crowded. Due to the channel it has to sail through, (which is banked by sand flats) the ferry does not arrive on time. We had 40 minute delay.

The ferry service depends in tide and weather conditions. Their twitter feed usually offers great info on actual departure times (@wpd_ameland). Generally, the ferry is fast and efficient!
