  • "Lovely"

    My wife, me, our 4 yr old and 10 week old baby had a great time on the over night ferry. Room was brilliant. Service was too. Highly recommended.

  • "First leg of a long trip"

    We enjoyed the first leg of our long trip across europe on a motorcycle, food was fantastic and the journey was very smooth. Cabins are quite cramped and hot but only needed for sleeping and washing in. Was unable to find water on our overnight trip back and had to purchase some from the medical supplies! Could do with at least one refreshment bar open all night for the people who are too hot to sleep. Staff were friendly and helpful. There were not enough straps to secure our bike on the way back and we felt very much like herded sheep up in the rafters of the car and truck bay which probably accounted for the roar of motorcycle engines as we were leaving.

  • "Fantastic Ship, Superb Crossing"

    It was the start to our holiday and meant that the driving we would have to do was greatly reduced. When booking I had failed to advise of my mobility problem however this was no problem and I was parked close to a lift. Not being good "sailors" I had booked a Club Class cabin for my son and I and the light, spacious cabin made the crossing so much better for us. The bathroom, and shower were really "big" and I was able to use both comfortably. Coming back the wind was a Force 7, so we knew that it may be rougher than the outward journey, however, for me the crossing was just great, my son did feel a little unwell but was not "ill". The bar, restaurant and shops were very good, the restaurant providing plenty of attentive staff who actually carried my food to the table (in the self-service). For me it was the perfect relaxing way to travel to Europe.

Hull Guide

The English city of Hull, or Kingston upon Hull to give it its official name, is located in the ceremonial county of the East Riding of Yorkshire, in the north east of England. The city, and its port, lies on the banks of the River Hull where it meets the Humber estuary, around 40 km from the North Sea. The city's history dates back to the 12th century where the monks of Meaux Abbey needed a port in order to export the wool they gathered from their estate.

The Hull of today is very different from the Hull of the past and has undergone a transformation in recent years. The city was declared the UK City of Culture for 2017. The city's cultural and sporting heritage are clear for everyone to see. In the city, visitors should visit the Old Town and Museum Quarter, Hull Marina and The Deep, which is an aquarium located at Sammy's Point. From a sporting perspective the city is home to a Premier League football team, Hull City Football Club, and a Super League Rugby team, Hull FC Rugby Club.

Ferries from the town's port depart to Rotterdam/Europort in The Netherlands, with a crossing time of between 10 and 11 hours. There is also a service to Zeebrugge in Belgium, with a crossing time of around 14 hours and a weekly service to Hamina in Finland.

Zeebrugge Guide

The town of Zeebrugge lies on the North Sea coast of Belgium and is one of Europe's main transport hubs due to its proximity to a number of major European industrial towns and because of its good transport links. Zeebrugge is also Belgium's most important fishing port and the wholesale fish market located there is one of Europe's largest. The harbour was the site of the Zeebrugge Raid in April 1918, when the British Royal Navy put the German inland naval base at Bruges out of action. Admiral Roger Keyes planned and led the assault that stormed the German batteries and sank the ships in the harbour to block the entrance to the base for the last seven months of World War I.

Most of the passengers passing through the port are either enjoying a luxury cruise or crossing by ferry to Hull and Rosyth in the UK. Facilities at the port include several shops, a café and comfortable waiting areas.
