"Care of a disabled passenger"
Reviewed 12 January 2015 by Christopher
My wife was helped by a P & O officer, with a P& O wheelchair, from our car to the passenger lounge and then back again to our car at the arrival port. This was done calmly and pleasantly by the officer, much appreciated by both of us. Luckily that day, the sea was perfectly calm too!

"Trip Dover to Calais/Dunkerque 28/30 November 2014"
Reviewed 22 December 2014 by Linda
We feel cross that there was no duty free on the boat when we went from Dover to Calais. On the return journey we were diverted to Dunkerque. We especially wanted to go to the shopping mall in Calais - even more so as we had missed out on duty free on the ferry over and couldn't be certain it wouldn't be the same scenario on the way back. We, therefore, had to leave Bruselles early and incurred excessive fuel costs. We make the trips at least twice a year and have always used P&O ferries. We have no complaints with the ferry back. The service, catering and, particularly the staff were excellent. We feel sad that the circumstances have clouded are view of your company and wonder whether some compensation would be in order.

The English town and port of Dover is located in the county of Kent in the south east of England. The town lies on the English Channel coast at its narrowest point between England and France. This narrow stretch of the English Channel is called the Strait of Dover. In and around the town there are many things for visitors to see and do. In memory of the spot where Bleriot landed following the first cross channel flight in 1909, the Bleriot Memorial is an outline of the aircraft flown set into the ground. Also, and overlooking the town, is Dover Castle which is the largest castle in England. It was founded in the 12th century and has been described as the "Key to England" due to its defensive significance throughout its history.
The Port of Dover is the world's busiest passenger port, with 16 million travellers, 2.1 million lorries, 2.8 million cars and motorcycles and 86,000 coaches passing through it each year. It is the main port of departure for travellers from the UK to France and beyond into mainland Europe. Services are operated by P&O Ferries, DFDS Seaways and MyFerryLink to Calais and Dunkirk.
The French city of Calais is located in the Nord-Pas de Calais departement of north west France and is the closest port in France to England. The Strait of Dover, which lies across the English Channel on the UK mainland, is around 32 km from Calais and on a clear day the famous White Cliffs of Dover can be seen from Calais as can the Calais coast from the cliffs. Calais has been an important maritime hub for commerce and tourism between France and England for many years and the town itself is divided into two parts. The old town, Calais-Nord, is located on a man made island that is surrounded by canals and harbours. The modern town, St-Pierre, is located to the south of the old town. The city is moving away from just being home to the busy port and is becoming increasingly popular as a tourist destination in itself. It has a long and rich cultural heritage, a number of museums and a lively nightlife. A popular attraction in the city are its Belfries which are siege towers that were built to protect the city from marauders, and are today declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Ferries to England depart Calais on average every 30 minutes, with a crossing time to Dover of around 75 minutes.
