  • "Normandy Trip"

    Sailing was smooth and easy. We reported 1 1/2 hours prior to sailing as directed and were allowed to sail on an earlier crossing than what had been booked due to the availability of seating for foot passengers.

  • "Dover to Calais return"

    Turned up. No queues either journey and put on the next ferry (semi flexi fare). Given up on Euro tunnel after numerous delays and a more relaxing journey albeit about 45 minutes longer.

  • "great trip"

    P and O outward trip was fine and on time despite a very full ship. On our return we turned up at the port early and they kindly put us on an earlier sailing with no charge so we were very impressed. We ate in the Brasserie as although it is more expensive than the food court the food is massively better and good value. The ship is new and very smart

  • "Very nice and easy"

    i haven't been on a ferry for around 40 years and what an improvement! No sickening smell of marine diesel, the boat was well signposted and clean, they even had a playleader lady doing drawing with the children. Didn't seem as though it was heaving with people - really very nice. Thank you.
