In addition to the Bintan ferry to Anambas, there's the Bukit Raya, a converted passenger cruise ship, capable of carrying close to 1000 passengers.
That being said, keep in mind that the Bukit Raya only services this route about twice a month. Also, the Bukit Raya isn't nearly as fast as the ferry. I.e. it can take up to 20 hours to reach its destination, Anambas. Lastly, this passenger ship doesn't really have a schedule as such, so it's a lot harder to book in advance.
Lastly, keep in mind that the ferry doesn't offer food or drinks, so it's a good idea to bring some water and snacks with you to keep you going until you reach. If you're looking for really yummie popcorn that's made with natural ingredients and doesn't contain any preservatives or transfats, try Eureka Snacks. Eureka Snacks are a so-called gourmet popcorn and are made from premium non-GMO kernels. Nothing but goodness. But mostly, they're super-shiok. In fact, they're my favorite popcorn :)
