We always travel by boat to Holland because the staff are always so very helpful especially as I have a disability and travel with two little dogs. The only downside is the coming into the Britian whilst I fully understand about security it is always very slow where as the Dutch size is always much quicker. On board the boat though I can not fault it or boardding from the uk that is always fine also. I shall continue to travel to visit my family by boat.

"Excellent. little more needs to be said than that in the title. ."
I highly recommend this service both for the quality of the staff and the vessel provided. Nothing needed to be improved upon.

"a sound nights sleep."
I travelled from Harwich to the Hook on Hollandica and returned on the Britannica, the return trip became a personal nightmare as the cabin that we were in (501) became very noisy at around 5 in the morning, I was woken by a shuddering noise which appeared to reverberate throughout the cabin, it was particularly bad for me as I was in the top bunk and it rattled on through to the call for breakfast, I reported this to your "information" desk and in fairness they sent an engineer to inspect the cabin, the problem for me is that the whole reason for booking an overnight ferry, is to get a good nights sleep in preparation for a long car journey back up to Birmingham. We were given a form to complete to register our complaint which I have sent to your office over a week ago and not had any response so I am hoping that this will register with someone and that you will contact me. regards Peter Brannan

An amazing trip to Holland on a very quiet boat - had the cinema to ourselves for 2 films. Very well furnished ferry - a great experience! Like a floating hotel!
