  • "Holiday Trip to France"

    We holiday in France every year, normally we drive to Folkestone and stay overnight and then take the car on the Eurotunnel train next morning, this year we though we would try the Hull to Zeebrugge P&O Ferry, as it is only one hour's drive to Hull from York instead of the normal four and half hour's drive to Folkestone. We are glad we made the change as it was brilliant and very relaxing, we boarded the ferry, located our cabin and then booked a table in the restaurant before sitting down in one of the lounges with a drink. After an excellent meal we again relaxed in one of the lounges before turning in for the night, and although the cabins only have bunk beds we found them surprising comfortable, so we both had a good nights sleep. After a good breakfast next morning we disembarked in Zeebrugge and went on our way to France, we are very glad we chose this way to travel and will certainly do this again next year.

  • "Pity about the small dining room"

    The Hull - Rotterdam route is serviced by newer and larger ferries than Hull - Zeebrugge, with faster and easier loading of cars (no queues), larger cabins and public areas. However the dining facilities are cramped and badly laid out, with less choice subsequently. I suspect that to get a decent meal you would have to go ala carte. We far prefer Hull - Zeebrugge, and only sailed to Rotterdam because on our chosen day of travel it was the only one running.

  • "Good sailing"

    We had a recent trip to Bruges from Hull. Staff friendly and helpful. We had an inside cabin for the time to our surprise it was much bigger than outside cabins although no window! Breakfast in The Kitchen restaurant has improved greatly from the last time we traveled. Sea was calm and sunny in Bruges. Lots to do and see. Well worth the trip

  • "P and O Still doing the business !"

    Travelled Hull to Zeebrugge and back on the Pride of York/Brugges and lived up to expectations. Ships are the former Hull/Rotterdam models and in some lights the exteriors look a little aged now although interiors have been upgraded. Service up to expectations as was catering.

  • "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.

  • "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.

    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
