“Not So Grim in the North”

published 21/12/2007

Modern, Spacious Ships, Value Price

Steeply Priced Food

Triangle. What a stupid concept for a TV series. I can't possibly imagine what the BBC thinking back in the early 80's; "I know, let's set a soap opera aboard a North Sea ferry…"? Ok I see a couple of problems with this; firstly it's never going to be an English 'Love Boat'. No matter how many...

“We Are Sailing”

published 26/12/2003

Food, food, and more food

posh, posh, posh

I say every year that I would like to go on holiday at Christmas as it seems like a good way to get out of the chore of Christmas cooking duties and providing 24 hour buffet services, so displaying his usual impeccable timing, hubby this year booked us a holiday which ended on 20th December...

I never thought that I would ever be that old that the prospect of cruising would appeal to me but how wrong I was … it’s not that I’ve got old (38 and holding fast!) it’s just that I had completely the wrong idea about cruising. Chances are that you have similar...

“P&O North Sea”

published 12/07/2004

Great fun and loads to do

weather out at sea

Pride of Hull and Pride of Rotterdam. During 2004 I have had the pleasure of 3 minicriuses with P&O from the port of Hull. The first 2 times we sailed on the Pride of Rotterdam and the third time we sailed on the Pride of Hull. P&O are the first to point out that when these ships were launched...

Among the best holiday experiences of a lifetime!

Price a prohibitive factor for many

The story I am about to tell is one with which many of the older contributors to this section will aprreciate and identify with. I might well only be 21 years of age, but I am sufficiently astute to recognise that P&O Cruises is not the company it was back in 1988 when I took my first cruise...

Too much food if you have no willpower.

P & O have had such bad press lately I thought I would write down my experiences with this company since 1980. The first cruise with P.& O. was on the Canberra in 1980, visiting several countries in the Mediterranean. We went with a couple of friends and had a wonderful time, feeling and being...

“Pride of Bilbao NOT for ME”

In February of this year some friends and me decided that we needed a cheap break away. I looked around the Internet and came across a site called www.firedup.com. This site has since closed down but at the time they were offering a mini cruise to Spain for £35. The ship was called the Pride of...

4 days away for pennies, Dolphin & Whale watching.

only a short time in Bilbao

Took the trip in May 2010 with my son aged 9, upgraded to a sea view cabin, cost for the both of us, £77, booked a day before we went, could no doubt get it cheaper if booked in advance. The trips end in September, which will be a shame as the Biscay Bay Dolphin Research team which are on board...

Remember this is a 'Ferry' not a Cruise ship as such... If you board this boat expecting to be on the QMII then you will be very dissapointed...but then it is (as I say) a Ferry and an excellent one too. I have travelled on this Ship about 7 times with my car over the years, its far bigger than...

“Ocean Village”

published 07/07/2004

Informal, 24 Hour Dining, Plenty to Do and See

Sunbeds

Having never cruised before, having read a bad review regarding Ocean Village and knowing that Ocean Village was being marketed at "People that don't do cruising", I was unsure as to whether this was going to turn out to be a nightmare week on a floating Butlins. I couldn't have been more wrong...

That it had to end!

Having just returned today from a very pleasurable break away courtesy of P & O North Sea Ferries, I felt that I would like to share my experiences with you all so that you can judge for yourselves whether or not a minicruise is for you. To set the scene, I had booked myself and my fiancee onto...

if you get a bit see sick

I have been lucky enough to travel on P & O 's faboulous cruise liners on two seperate occasions. The first time we travelled to Zebrugge and the second Zebrugge, Rotterdam and Le Havre. We were greeted by the whole crew and captain once we boared the ship (We have been on both the Artemis, which...

Friendly staff, clean

Tiny swimming pool

This ship was very good value for its price. First of all I'd like to say that some people expect this ship to have massive rooms and 100 different places to eat, but can I remind you that the pride of Bilbao is for mini-cruises, meaning that it won't have as much services!! I went with my sister...

Comfy, relaxing, hassle-free.

Costs extra.

I haven't been on a ferry for ages and since the channel tunnel was completed have either used the tunnel or have flown to France. My abiding images of ferry trips are of struggling to find a seat away from screaming kids or yobs and disgusting toilets. So why did we decide to go on the ferry...
