Travelled on the night crossing both ways from Harwich - Hook of Holland. Crossing is quite short so best to arrive and board ship early to maximise sleeping time. Dined in the a la carte restaurant which is excellent value. Ship is very large, modern, stable and comfortable. Service from crew is outstanding. Arrives early so only time for a quick snack breakfast in the bar at the back (croissants and coffee unless you want to get up even earlier for a full buffet breakfast in the self-serve restaurant. Overall an excellent choice to break a long journey especially if you have long drives at each side - saves a hotel bill. Nothing of great value in "duty free" shop.

We had an excellent crossing, we had an outside cabine which was ideal for two adults and a ten months old. When we go to Holland again we will chose this crossing over Dover Calais.

The whole process from booking, arrival, loading, cabin, facilities and disembarkation was all very good. Would recommend the crossing to anyone.

Located in the English county of Essex, the town and port of Harwich lies on the North Sea coast, on the estuaries of the River Stour and River Orwell. Its proximity to the sea has resulted in the town having a well established, long history with both the military and merchant navy. In 1652 the town became a naval base and was heavily fortified with Harwich Redoubt, Beacon Hill Battery and Bath Side Battery. Containing many historic buildings, Harwich's old town has been declared a conservation area.
Harwich has also been home to some notable residents including Christopher Jones, the master and part owner of the Mayflower, the diarist Samuel Pepys was an MP for the town and Christopher Newport who founded Jamestown, Virginia, came from Harwich.

The Hook of Holland is a town located in the west of The Netherlands and lies at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg Ship Canal that flows to the north sea. The town, which derives its name from its geographical location in the south western corner of Holland, is of significant historical significance. Its location meant that it was used by the Germans for its strategies that required the use of a harbour. However, aside from this it is a beautiful town to visit and has some lovely beaches with one sandy beach stretching from the town to Scheveningen, almost 18 km away. Along this beach visitors will find sand dunes and some designated cycle routes which makes the area perfect to be explored by bicycle. Visitors should be warned though as one section of the beach is used by naturists!
