“I BOGOF to Bruges.”

published 03/12/2008

ProRelaxing, cheap and cheerful.

ConsSmoking only allowed on the outside of the decks.

About this time of year, I make a bi-annual, cross channel trip to Belgium and France by car, actually not so much a trip as a S.A.S raid……….shop and scarper!! This round trip is a non stop journey taking approximately 16 to 18 hours in total, depending on traffic conditions. Due to my ever...

Hull to Zeebrugge As I used to live in Belgium and my grandmother lived in England using P&O Ferries (at the time it was called North Sea Ferries and not owned by P&O) was the main way of going to see her. Now, I live in the UK and my dad still lives in Belgium, I still use the service today...

Ways to cross number 2? Now that our favourite Cross Channel operator, Hoverspeed, has apparently sailed off into the sunset, I guess that really P & O Ferries has taken pole, Number 1 position, or has it? POSH? You probably already know this useless piece of information, but for the few of you...

My boyfriend and I have travelled on the P & O Ferries 'Pride of Bilbao' 3 times now and each time was thoroughly enjoyable...so much more than I was expecting for a £32 minibreak! We decided to book a minicruise after being recommended the break by some friends. The price was a big factor in our...

“Scotland to Ireland ferry”

published 10/09/2008

ProModern ship, fast crossing, comfortable seating

ConsStaff on car deck, high prices

I visit Northern Ireland several times a year for my company & use budget airlines for getting there as they provide the cheapest form of transport to the province. However recently I had to take some delicate equipment with me to Belfast & the airlines were just not suitable, so it had to be the...

“A good way to visit Europe”

ConsPrices on board are high, a little out dated

After just coming back from a visit abroad using North Sea Ferries and doing this particularly crossing 3 or 4 times, I thought I'd let you know all about it! This review is based on the Pride of York ferry out of Hull docks and to Zeebrugge. The ferry itself is fairly tidy, although seems a...

I shall begin by mentioning that I am terrified of the sea and boats! I know most of you associate the sea with boats but there’s also bridges over water, cliffs and even going too far in at the seaside! So if I am forced to do so I prefer to spend as little amount of time on the wretched floaty...

ProWould have been ok in summer

Consoutdated entertainment, not very clean

We went on a mini-cruise with P&O, which turned out to be a complete nightmare. The problems started off in our rooms, one of the beds had a blood-stained duvet, which is extremely disgusting and unhygienic, secondly on the P&O website it stated that Heinz baby food would be supplied free of...

I have just returned from my latest foray into P&O's world of mini-cruise by ro-ro ferry, this time traveling from Portsmouth to Bilbao in Northern Spain on what turned out to be the Halloween themed Cruise, I wasnt aware of this when I booked. To sum the trip up, I would have to say that it...

The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O) are famous for ferry travel from Britain to Europe. Although they do offer a variety of other services (N.B. despite keeping the name, P&O Cruises is no longer a P&O subsidiary, it is owned by cruise-giant Carnival) this is a hopefully...

“Gone But Not Forgotten”

published 03/05/2003

ProThey don't do it now.

ConsI wish they still did!

I was sorely tempted to ask for a new catty-gory, when blobbyqueen issued the challenge. I had two, nay three, in mind. The John o’Groats Ferry Company, Pentland Ferries, and Northlink. All of whom (well the first two, anyway) deserve enormous credit for battling over the inhospitable waters of...
