Quite commonly the ferry would not be the real final destination - but 
in the middle of the route.
Routers commonly do not use more restrictive access values in the middle 
of a route ...

access=customer may be also parking places with bothside access.
access=private may be also big company areas with bothside access.
Commonly routers shall not use those - so why should they use them at 
ferry terminals?

You may have to pay a "fee" to access, but I would call this a public 
traffic route.
In particular if there is no other possible route.
As long as there is no other easy way I would "tag for routers" in this
