  • "good experience"

    From arriving at the dock at Hull,it was the start of a very good holiday. The staff were very courteous, nothing was too much trouble for them. Cabins are comfortable and clean. Plenty of choice for food, which was served hot! Able to move around the ferry without being crowded. I have travelled many time's on this route, on my own, but this time I shared it with friends and they really enjoyed it and compared it to the many cruises they have been on and stated it is on par for comfort,food, facilities and the help from the staff.

  • "Hull - Zeebrugge"

    Excellent. Chose the evening meal and breakfast option which proved to be very good. All food was perfectly cooked and unlike many buffets all was as if just cooked for you! very good all round Oh apart from the entertainment, the girl did manage to murder some very good songs, the two guys were OK but the girl put us off any more!

  • "All Aboard!"

    We had a smooth crossing overnight there and back, the staff were helpful when needed, extra bed bars were provided upon request for children. Dinner was nice, but pricey for what it was, still, the snack bar was sufficient if you didn't want dinner. Kids area could do with more in it, it's more like a padded cell than a play room! One point should be that there was no mention when booking that pregnant ladies over 28 weeks are not allowed to sail without a doctors note, by chance we just didn't need one, but a week later and it could have ruined our holiday.

  • "Another fabulous trip"

    What a great start and finish to our short holiday. Although quite a bit smaller than the Hull to Rotterdam ferries, the ferry is clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly. The cabin was small but spotlessly clean with comfy bunks. This time we opted to dine and breakfast on board. The food was of good quality and there was a large variety of different dishes to choose from, plus you can eat as much as you like! The bars and coffee lounge were pleasant places to pass some of the time and we even enjoyed a sunny evening on deck on the way back home.

  • "Excellent experience"

    The ferry terminal was well signposted and easy to find. Ticket collection was swift and once on board collection of cabin keys was simple. Cabin was clean and very comfortable just maybe a little stuffy with 4 people in. Food on board was good quality in the bistro with good choice and excellent service on the outward journey. We opted to take the special offer dinner and breakfast on the return and found the great value and very reasonable quality food and , once again, great service. Only down side was the long wait to get through passport check leaving Hull coming home which took over an hour to get through but this was no fault of the ferry company and more to do with the state of the nation at the moment. Overall excellent.

  • "Thank you"

    It was the first time we had done this trip and were very impressed with the efficiency of all levels of staff , from helping us board, dining room experience and entertainment. My son and his family are stationed in Belgium for two years so we will be using Direct Ferries at least three times a year. We are traveling in August with my 80 year old mother so hope we have as good experience as we did in May. All crew members we came in contact with were pleasant and helpful,and very professional. Looking forward to our next trip. Many thanks

    I just want to express my great thanks to the staff on the information desks each way who assisted in changing our cabins to more spacious size as my companion was disabled. It would have been better had we been allocated these rooms when I booked but thankfully we enjoyed very comfortable journeys each way. All the staff on board are friendly and very helpful. Well done to all.

  • "Recent Trip"

    There was 3 of us traveling across to Amsderdam. The start of the journey went abit downhill as there was no signs for the mult-story car park and we drove back into hull and then back to then ask someone, if only we had drove towards the boat we would have seen it (im sure other people have done this too) the ferry was well marked out on board, there was lots of things to do inc the band that was great. we have no other complaints re our journey other than the parking.

    Normally I use Dover Calias but thought I would try this crossing. A great boat with good food options and a nice comfortable room. Added bonus of a good nights sleep leaves you feeling fresh a ready to drive the next morning.

    Troublefree trip. Boarded at Hull at 4pm so were able to enjoy our meal (food excellent - didn't feel the need to upgrade to the Braserie) in the calm waters of the Humber estuary. Booked Club cabin - which was very comfortable. Very friendly staff and nice relaxed trip - in spite of lively seas. Would recommend.

    Used this ferry service many times. Very good once again. Travel via Hull saves a long drive to Dover to go to Belgium or France. Usually off the boat about 9 after a sleep and a satisfying breakfast ready for a new day. Will use again.

  • "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.
