"The ups and downs of P&O ferry travel"
I cannot recommend highly enough the crew the food and the cabins. It's a slow crossing but when you do it a few times you start to understand why you seem to wait in Liverpool for so long after arriving. My trip this time was marred on the return by being placed in a dirty cabin with crumbs and other dirt on the window ledge and even worse on the wall of the loo, I only discovered the latter at the end of my cabin stay. I would have asked for a change if I'd noted it before. I'm sure it was an oversight as I've used the ferry lots of times and never had a bad cabin. The one other issue is that I went to book on P&O and the price of a cabin was much more costly. I did ask customer services at P&0 and was told the price had changed. But on board the staff say it hasn't changed and only charge £15-20 for a cabin in the day/ afternoon. So book with Direct Ferries to get the correct price is my advice. One final bugbear,no WiFi on board.Why not???

"My opinion of P&O sailings Liverpool/Dublin"
From meeting the staff who supply the boarding card to saying goodbye to the reception staff as we leave the entire experience is always a pleasure. The food is to a high standard always, the cabin is always clean and the entire staff are friendly and professional at all times. I hope that this review is helpful.

This is the first time we have travelled on a ferry and we really enjoyed it. The food was great on the outward journey to Dublin but not up to the same standard coming back. The seats were comfatable on both journeys. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience.

The city was also labelled the World Capital of Pop by Guinness World Records because of its world famous link with The Beatles and other groups from the Merseybeat era. Parts of the city have also been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites, in recognition of the city's rich heritage.
