Hull Zeebrugge Ferry reviews

  • "Trip across the waters "

    Recently crossed from Hull to Zeebrugge on The Pride of Bruges. I actually sailed on her 27 years ago when she was brand new. This time I was with my wife and mother-in-law heading to France. This was a fantastic crossing, hardly any movement with the waves. The entertainment was great, as were the bars and coffee shop. Staff in duty free shops were extremely helpful and pleasant. We opted for the breakfast and dinner booking when I booked the trip, you were also given the option on board to pay. The food was really good, lots to chose from with buffet selection which was eat as much as you like, tea, coffee, juices, water all included. Overall a very pleasant trip and I would certainly do it again with P&O, and easy to book through Direct Ferries.

  • "Hull to Zeebrugge crossing"

    We sailed in August 2015. In comparison with last year's trip (with another ferry company who shall remain nameless!!), we really were in the lap of luxury! The cabins and beds were comfortable, though the bathrooms could have been a little bigger for extra comfort. The restaurant was fairly priced and the food was better than some restaurants we've been to! The waiters and staff in general, we're both friendly and professional and went out of their way to be helpful. There was plenty on the ferry to keep us occupied in our waking hours. In general it was a very pleasant experience and a great way to kick start our holiday. We'll done P and O! We would definitely use you again and recommend you to family and friends.

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.
