First time on this service - really good. Very efficient parking & well organised helpful men with our car which has low ground clearance due to valence. Very polite & friendly staff on board itself. Decent food and prices are OK. Nothing too expensive overall. Enjoyed the casino table too. Cabin was great - really comfy bed and everything very clean and worked. No negatives at all. Would have been nice to have seen the control deck out of interest. Definitely use again.

Good trip,no problems at all.staff hospitable and facilities on ship OK. Did not really enjoy food in restaurant.Feel the standard has dropped and although edible was not much better than heated up canteen food(not a problem when you are paying less for it). Would use again but would not have the meals!

"Driving up change fees"
Reviewed 30 May 2014 by Martin
It took a long time due to a delay, but it couldn't be helped. When I initially booked my journey between Hull and Rotterdam I had entered the wrong return date, May 21 instead of May 22. I rang within a minute to try and change it but was told there was no more space on the 22nd so had to reroute to Zeebrugge. This was €80 more, but I did it anyway. I then rang P&O to ask if there were any spaces left. There was, but only with 4 in one room. Directferries did not give me this option, which is disappointing. Just before the return journey I thought to myself let's check if there really aren't any spaces available on the ferry to Rotterdam. You then knew that there were spaces available. Changing the ticket would cost an additional €150. I didn't do it, but it's not right. I won't do this again. Will book directly with P&O from now on.

"2 very good crossings"
Reviewed 21 May 2014 by Edward P
Our party of four travelled during the week when both ships were quiet. They are well appointed and comfortable and we were able to book tables for meals in the restaurant which added to the comfort. Staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Cabins were clean and well equipped for the short overnight crossings. However, one minor complaint is that shower gel was not provided in the dispenser in the shower! All-in-all a very pleasant experience but I would have to qualify that by saying I wonder if the same would still apply when the ships are full?

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
Zeebrugge (meaning "sea landing) is a harbour-town on the coast of Belgium, a subdivision of Bruges, for which it is the modern port. It serves as an international Port and a seafront resort with hotels, cafés and beach. Zeebrugge has been instrumental in Brugge's reinvigoration as a city, which unfortunately lost its harbor to silting hundreds of years ago. The construction of the new seaport at Zeebrugge began at the turn of the 20th century and the city's reputation as an art and tourist center for Northern Europe began its revival. The marina is also Belgium’s most important fishing port, and the wholesale fish market located there is one of the largest in Europe. Aside from being a passenger port with ferries to the UK, the harbour serves as the central port for Europe's automotive industry and is important for the importation, handling and storage of energy products, agriculture products and other general cargo.
