"A good experience"
I have no complaints at all about the experience; the delay on the journey was apparently outwith the control of the operators (though it would be only polite if passengers were informed in greater detail about the reasons for a delay.) I've often thought, however, that it is a lost opportunity not to provide more information about the route of the journey. The Clyde estuary is one of the most interesting and complex in these islands, and it would be nice to be able to know exactly where the ship is at any time, as is frequently done in air travel. I don't suggest loudspeaker announcements, which would annoy as many passengers as it would interest, there being more than enough such announcements as it is, but at least clear maps displayed by which passengers could identify some of the stunning sights before them, instead of letting them pass in ignorance. I noticed an interesting Information Board dealing with the history of P&O, but that's about you! All sorts of information could be provided: history, geology, land use and so on, relating to such eye-catching features as Ailsa Craig, or Arran and its smaller islands, Island Magee, the Rhinns of Galloway and so make the journey even more attractive without intruding on other passengers. Your crews sail these routes every day and are accustomed to seeing what is in front of them; for most passengers it is a relatively uncommon experience, often part of a holiday, and could easily be made a lot more memorable in the manner I describe.

"Doon the Clyde"
My return trip home delivering a car from Belfast to Scotland was made that much more enjoyable due to a fine weather crossing from Larne to Troon. I arrived well refreshed and ready for a further three hour drive home.

The town and port of Larne is located on the east coast of County Antrim in Northern Ireland. The town's maritime history dates back over 1,000 years and is now a major cargo and passenger port. The town is only around 25 miles from the Scottish mainland and lies on the western side of a narrow inlet that links it to the sea. The eastern side of the inlet is the Island Magee Peninsular and to the west is the ancient volcanic formation of Antrim Plateau. Due to the town's proximity to Scotland, there are magnificent views to be had towards the Mull of Kintyre, Rhins of Galloway, Islay and Paps of Jura.
Larne is Northern Ireland's busiest ferry port and handles around 1 million passengers and 200, 000 cars every year. Passenger facilities at the port are excellent with lounge areas, a restaurant, cash machines, shops, tourist information and a rail and bus station. The two main ferry services operating out of the port to mainland Britain are to Cairnryan, with a crossing time of around 1 hour and 45 minutes. There is also a service to Troon with a crossing time of around 2 hours. There is also a ferry that operates between Larne and Fleetwood in the north west of England.
The Scottish town of Troon lies on the west coast of Scotland, between two bays. The town's rich history has strong links with the game of golf, and also with sailing and is a great destination for family vacations. The beautiful Isle of Arran is easy to get to from Troon and provides a lovely backdrop to the North Bay where a great deal of the town's watersports take place. South Bay, on the other hand, has some lovely rockpools which extend into a long award winning sandy beach. perhaps the town's most famous icon is the Royal Troon Golf Course which is one of the hosts to the annual Open Golf Championship, which it hosts roughly even seven years.
One of Scotland's most sheltered harbours is located in the town which has good infrastructure, including a good road network that connects it to the rest of the road network in Scotland and England. Amenities in the ferry terminal include drinks vending machines and snacks, as well as a vast comfortable departure lounge. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Belfast and Larne in Northern Ireland.
