Superb stateroom cabin and facilities. Staff on board were really efficient and helpful. Disembarkation on the return leg in Hull is a bit of a pain. It took at least an hour. It's not a journey I would undertake again though, as I found the motion of the ship, though slight, gave me a headache,but that is just a problem I had, and I certainly wouldn't want to put anyone else off.

The ferry crossing was excellent. The crew on board were absolutely first class. The crew in the Brasserie were especially brilliant.

We arrived at the ferry well before departure time but could board immediately regardless and that was a big plus. We were sat having a nice meal in the restaurant long before departure. Afterwards we went to our spacious cabin with equally spacious shower. The only downside was the terrible mattrass on the double bed; not too hard or soft, no, just a matrass with something that once were springs. It was just a hole now.

Hull's (Its full title is Kingston-upon-Hull )maritime pre-eminence dates back to 1299, when it was laid out as a seaport by Edward I. It quickly became England's leading harbour, and was still a vital garrison when the gates were closed against Charles I in 1642, the first serious act of rebellion of what was to become the English Civil War.
The central Princes Dock sets the tone for Hull's modern refurbishment, the once abandoned waters now lined by landscaped brick promenades and overlooked by Princes Quay, a multi-tier, glass-spangled shopping centre, with the revamped marina beyond.
The train station is on the west side of town, on the main drag of Ferensway, with the bus station just to the north. The main tourist office is bang in the centre on Paragon Street at Queen Victoria Square
Rotterdam , located in the province of Zuid Holland, is the second largest city in the Netherlands (after Amsterdam). The city has the largest port in Europe and was until recently the largest port on earth; it is found on the banks of the river the Nieuwe Maas, one of the streams in the delta formed by the Rhine and Meuse rivers. Rotterdam was founded in the mid 13th century after a dam had been constructed in the River Rotte on the site of the present Hoogstraat. Over the centuries Rotterdam grew from a fishing village into an international centre of trade, transport, industry and distribution. At the beginning of the Second World War, on 14 May 1940, virtually the entire city centre was devastated by a German bombardment. This explains why scarcely any pre-war buildings have remained in this part of Rotterdam. After the war, reconstruction of what had been destroyed was given the highest priority.
