  • "P&O versus Calmac through the eyes of a musician."

    Having much experience of travelling on ferries I did enjoy this short trip; I was accustomed to life on the Calmac runs. Now in the Western Isles live music is usually provided by the passengers however this was not possible on this trip due to the presence of the sleeping quarters (on a 2 hour trip?), much to the disappointment of a few of your other customers. Performance was possible in the smoking areas but as you can imagine it was a bit breezy out there and it takes a good strong singer to compete with the engine noise. I managed. On the return trip I was a trifle fatigued due to gigging in Letterkenny the night before and having coffee in the terminal was, last car on. Compared to Oban/Castlebay/Leverburgh etc. the parking zone seems a mile away from the ferry but staff did direct me around the numerous turns on the quay. But all in all it was fine.

  • "Excellent journey"

    We had great journeys sailing with P &O. We left and arrived punctually and we're impressed with how clean the ships were. The highlight for us was the kids room, a great bonus to keep our 5 year old entertained. We ate in the restaurant on our first journey and my only issue would be it is very costly. I asked for a cheese salad, the menu board stated salads started from £2.70 with no further info. I was charged £7.50 for a plate half filled with salad leaves and then various types of cheese. I expected more salad and less cheese at less of a cost. Other than that we would definitely recommend P & O and would have no hesitation in booking again.

  • "Very Good "

    I recently travelled on a return trip to Ireland via the Cairnryan/Larne ferry. I was very impressed with how very user-friendly the Direct Ferries website was: easy to understand, easy to navigate, easy to book. Both crossings went smoothly too - very largely on time. Both ships were clean, comfortable and safe. Crews were friendly, helpful and polite. Overall I was very happy with the crossings.

  • "Didn't Know What a Freightliner Was. "

    On the way over we were changed to a freightliner and it was not a pleasant trip. On the way back on a proper passenger ferry it was an excellent trip despite really choppy seas. I would use P&O again.
