This was our second time travelling with stenaline from Harwich to Hoek v Holland and we find it good value for money, comfortable and a pleasant experience both times we have been ferried across. So from us ( a family of 6 ) we can honestly say that we would recommend this crossing to everyone.

Both sailings were fabulous. Staff were lovely so pleased to see guest services staff come out to help an elderly lady use the cash machine and then spend time chatting rather than being too busy to care. So rare in this day and age but so lovely to know that your company clearly values and encourages this level of care. Day trip- excellent,boarded in a timely manner and left on time recommendation...why do we have to pay for the cinema when its a disc in a big player seems a big wrong when you have already paid to travel and if I have kids for 6 hours I would not be able to afford yet it would be a wonderful distraction Night time sailing cant fault in any way -arrived early and yet were able to board cabin excellent much better than expectations smooth departure in the UK

We used to travel Hull - Rotterdam overnight, however we have now discovered a much pleasurable way to travel on the day trips across at half the cost. We will continue to travel this way

The town is believed to date from the mid-12th century. Its position on the estuaries of the Stour and Orwell rivers and its usefulness to mariners as the only safe anchorage between the Thames and Humber led to a long period of maritime significance, both civil and military. The town was heavily fortified, with Harwich Redoubt, Beacon Hill Battery, and Bath Side Battery. Many operations of the large container port at Felixstowe and of Trinity House, the lighthouse authority, are managed from Harwich, and a new container port in Bathside Bay has been proposed. Harwich today is contiguous with Dovercourt and the two along with Parkeston are often referred to collectively as Harwich.
Nearby places include Felixstowe to the northeast, Ipswich to the northwest and Colchester to the southwest. The town is believed to date from the mid-12th century.
Hook of Holland is a busy port. But it's also a resort, sometimes called "Rotterdam-by-the-Sea." This port-resort arrangement is typical of the Dutch and Belgian coasts: with large populations and little land, the seacoast has two "jobs" to do: handle shipping, and provide recreation for summer tourists. But the Dutch are so tidy that they manage to conceal the dock works from the resort beaches. Close to the industrial districts of Europoort and Rotterdam, it is literally situated on a corner - if you turn left from the North Sea beach onto the promenade which runs along the Nieuwe Waterweg (the access river to the harbour of Rotterdam) you can almost touch the ships that sail past. For this reason, the promenade attracts many visitors. The district of Hoek van Holland covers an area of 16.7 km² (of which 13.92 km² is land). It has endless possibilities, whether on kilometres of beach, or cycling or walking through the countryside.
