Ok, I’ll say it now. I’m sorry about the title but do consider that I have been away for ages so what do you expect? I’m still breaking myself in gently. I’d like you to remain nice to me at all times. OK!? Anyway, to cut to the chase, a friend and I decided that there had...

“Great Minicruise Weekend”

published 05/03/2006

Price, great surroundings, great facilities

entertainment, food

We travelled on the Pride of Rotterdam for a Mini-cruise to Amsterdam. It was very cheap (£50) for the weekend, and involved two nights in a cabin aboard the ship, and a full day In Amsterdam. Booking was very simple, although I did not do it. It was done on the Internet, although they accept...

“Hull to Rotterdam Review”

published 28/11/2006

Loads to do, fun, better than camping

Alcohol + Rough Sea = Chunder

We took the P&O Cruise ferry from Hull to Rotterdam. Booking was easy, all done online and you could choose your cabin. We were lucky enough as we booked early to get an outside cabin. The price was amazing, two for one offer making the total cost of the trip just £70.This included: Free long...

Good value, quality food, great service overall

Comfort in the cabins

We had only a few days to spare in August so decided on a short trip to Bruges via North Sea Ferries - one night each way on the ferry and one night in a hotel in Bruges. The journey We drove to Hull (less than an hour) and parked very close (100 yards) to the terminal building. Parking charges...

“Cruise your way to Europe”

published 15/01/2003

Fast direct overnight channel crossing

can be expensive compared to driving to Harwich

This is another long overdue Op, I've been meaning to write about P&O north Sea Ferries for a long time but never got around to it... As most of my friends know I took my car to Germany in June 2002, via the Hull to Rotterdam 'Cruise ferry', I sailed out on the 'Pride of Hull' and my return...

I've had to use P&O North Sea Ferries for 3 return trips between Hull and Rotterdam since 1990 travelling with a vehicle. 2 out of the three trips I had to move cabins to get away from passengers who looked as if they might be using the boat as a cheap alternative to a homeless hostel in Hull...

Modern, Attractive, Stylish, Comfy, Enjoyable

Expensive at times, can get fully booked

Travelling on the North Sea has in recent times developed a bad reputation. Passengers usually expect any old tub waiting to carry them on an overnight crossing, with poor cabins and no proper facilities. But no more. P&O Ferries have re-branded themselves with a new cruise-style background, and...

“Northern Plights”

published 13/02/2001

Quicker & easier for those in the north

None - ships a bit old

I hate those newspaper offers. The ones that say "France for £1". And you *can* go to France for £1. And you can add your car for a tenner. And you get a free case of wine in Cherbourg. And to thank you for just visiting France, they give you a Renault Scenic. OK, so I'm going a bit over the top...

Long journey, early start!

I am a veteran of North Sea Ferries, having lived in Belgium as a student. I have only ever travelled as a foot passenger but it has always been well worth it. In the last couple of years all of P&O's North Sea Ferries have been updated. The Hull-Rotterdam line uses only brand new ferries but the...

“Smoke, Urine, Bad Service”

published 23/08/2007

Could be a true mini cruiser

Stank of Urine, Smoke and Lazy Lazy Staff

Last November I booked a 5 day return Hull to Rotterdam returning Zeebrugge - Hull. Outbound we travelled on Pride of Rotterdam. The food was fantastic and the Indonisien crew were fabulous. Cabin was clean. As a unit trust holder dissapointed as more expensive with discounts!!! August 9/20 did...

Small cabins, can make things very cosy!

We travelled as a group of 4 and had a fantastic time. The staff on board were very friendly and welcoming. The journey made the trip for us as we made the most of the ships facilities, and met a top group of guys who were using the ferry service on their way out to France for work. Didn't envy...

wife and I have just had a 3 day mini cruise on the Pride ot Rotterdam, we were very impressed with the whole set up, we booked the trip with National Holidays - £79 each! we opted for the meals at £40 (2 dinners and 2 breakfasts) superb great value for money, cannot speak highly enough of the crew - the cabins were immaculate but I wouldn't want to spend more than a couple of nights in them. on arrival in Rotterdam our coach then took us on to Amsterdam were we had about 6 hours to look around then we were taken back to the ship for the return leg and that great food
