  • "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.

  • "Hull - Zeebrugge"

    Generally an excellent crossing. Boarded on time, sat having our dinner when the ship left Hull on time at 18:30hrs and ditto no the way back. Overall a very relaxing pleasant experience. Good food, wine list is a bit limited but food was good value and tasty. Only negatives - ship looks quite tired now. Inside cabins are quite stuffy at night and the temperature control on the incoming air from the ventilation seems not to work - it is always warm.

  • "The only way to cross the chanel"

    If you live in the north its worth the extra to sail Hull to Zebruggee rather than drive south. Dated ship but good facilities and definately the way to start any trip. Like driving an automatic, once you do you don't go back to manual, unless you love the M25 !!!!!

  • "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.

  • "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.

  • "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.

    We always used this trip when we visit my parents in the Nord of France. This way break always the travelling as you wake up fresh the next day. 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. Also the Chef's lasagna are the best we have ever tested... The emtertement and duty free shop also good and enough for us. We would prefer the piano bar. We always get an early night.. 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.
