Once you've got your tickets, just go with the flow and follow the instructions until you reach Padang Bai port.

When you hop on the boat, consider grabbing a seat towards the back near a door.

Those upfront might feel a bit queasy with the waves, and being close to a door means a speedy exit just in case the boat decides to play Titanic.
