"The comfort of our trip home"
Every two years we travel to and from Monaco by car for the Historic Grand Prix (2 weeks before F1). Coming from Yorkshire to Channel Tunnel (4.30 set off to avoid worst of traffic) then through France with a couple of stop offs. Long weekend at Historic GP then return through Italy, Germany, France, to Ghent in Belgium. The last leg we choose the Zeebrugge to Hull P&O ferry for a relaxed overnight trip arriving into Hull Sunday morning for the 60 miles drive home. Not having to drive the length of the UK with all the roadworks makes for a very good end to our 12 day trip as the boat is comfortable, quite, relaxed, with good facilities to chill out.

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 really enjoy this crossing, its relaxed, choice of bars and eating places and I think that the extra for a club cabin is well worth it

"Helpful staff on board P & O Ferries"
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.

Always good from the checking point until the boarding. Cabine are good standard Restaurant the Kitchen is perfect and thank you to the waitress who kindly accept to put us ii nn the annex after we have asked a window table.

Well done to all the crew on board.

"Hull to Zeebrugge crossing"
We sailed in August 2015. In comparison with last year's trip (with another ferry company who shall remain nameless!!), we really were in the lap of luxury! The cabins and beds were comfortable, though the bathrooms could have been a little bigger for extra comfort. The restaurant was fairly priced and the food was better than some restaurants we've been to! The waiters and staff in general, we're both friendly and professional and went out of their way to be helpful. There was plenty on the ferry to keep us occupied in our waking hours. In general it was a very pleasant experience and a great way to kick start our holiday. We'll done P and O! We would definitely use you again and recommend you to family and friends.

Ship was showing its age externally but was ok internally. Cabin was tidy and very basic, but didn't expect much for an overnight stay.

"Travelling on P&O Ferries between Hull and Zebrugge "
We had a good fun journey on board the ferries. The kids loved the childrens entertainment and the soft play. The facilities on the ferry and great and the staff are all very friendly. Unfortunately our car broke down when we were in France so we had to come back on the ferry as foot passengers and a lot of luggage!! The staff could not have been more helpful with helping us on the boat with our luggage. It is a very enjoyable experience travelling on the ferry and a great way to start and end your holiday.

"Easy peasy start to a holiday"
we had a very easy and chilled start to our holiday this year on the P&0 Hull to Zeebrugge ferry crossing. Calm crossing, good food, a quiet drink in the bar and then a quiet nights sleep. No traffic jams, blockades or queues. We were so lucky and grateful!

"ANOTHER SUPERB CROSSING OF THE NORTH SEA"
Check-in was smooth, as usual, staff at the port were friendly and helpful. The loading was quick and easy. Helpful staff on the car deck to point us in the right direction for a lift and directions given for finding the reception. The cabin was clean, as always. Bar and Restaurant Staff on board were more than helpful and friendly. The food was of the usual high standard. No complaints whatsoever. We find it the easy and comfortable to travel to UK and then on to Scotland. Slight delay on arrival at Zeebrugge, but the tide is the king and was no problem for us.

"First leg of a long trip"
We enjoyed the first leg of our long trip across europe on a motorcycle, food was fantastic and the journey was very smooth. Cabins are quite cramped and hot but only needed for sleeping and washing in. Was unable to find water on our overnight trip back and had to purchase some from the medical supplies! Could do with at least one refreshment bar open all night for the people who are too hot to sleep. Staff were friendly and helpful. There were not enough straps to secure our bike on the way back and we felt very much like herded sheep up in the rafters of the car and truck bay which probably accounted for the roar of motorcycle engines as we were leaving.
