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."
Reviewed 08 March 2015 by Peter
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!

"An excellent ship"
Reviewed 08 March 2015 by John
A huge ship and a modest number of passengers made for a much less flustered crossing than the summer bustle.With the exception of a tremendous vibration when maneuvering in harbour-bow thrusters maybe-the ship was very quiet and comfortable.After a few years of service one or two signs of wear are just appearing but the ferry is still the most impressive and comfortable I have ever used.

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!
