  • "excellent - but........"

    Everything from the booking to boarding was excellent as was the Club Lounge. HOWEVER on the Larne return journey - despite priority boarding I was among the last to disembark meaning I was at the end of the queue all the way along the A75 to Dumfries. I assumed that priority boarding meant also priority disembarking - or am I mistaken??

  • "Smooth sailing "

    We recently travelled with P&O between Cairnryan and Larne. Queuing and boarding was straightforward with very helpful staff suggesting we take the lift with our baby. Plenty of seating; I was able to breastfeed comfortably. Food on board was well cooked and hot; no queuing. Disembarking was efficient. Overall my best ferry crossing yet.

  • "Holiday trip to Ireland"

    This was our second holiday trip to Ireland this year, our first holiday was in May, this one August. We traveled with P&O both times as we find everything just so easy and the trip so enjoyable.The food onboard is first class and reasonably priced plus the service is very good delivered by friendly efficient staff. The video room has comfortable reclining seats and the films new and suitable for mixed groups. The ships are easy to board, with helpful staff on hand to answer any questions. We will be booking with P&O for our holidays next year.

  • "Good trip"

    The outward and return sailings were markedly different. The 4am outward trip from Cairnryan was quiet and not crowded but the return trip from Larne was a full compliment of passengers. Both were prompt in terms of boarding experience and sailing times and a pleasant sailing experience. On the return the captain explained the full passenger compliment and encouraged passengers to try and accommodate access by not reserving or blocking seat access. I was impressed with the following elements; boarding; departure time; onboard catering opportunities; information from captain during voyage.

  • "Very Helpful Staff"

    The whole process, from booking to travelling, was exceptionally easy. I was travelling by motorcycle and was given assistance to secure my bike after boarding. When it was time to disembark, my bike wouldn't start and the staff members were exceptionally helpful in assisting me to get my bike off the ferry.

  • "Pleasant smooth sailings"

    Had occasion recently to take the ferry from Larne to Belfast and return a week later - the whole experience was hassle free and passed smoothly. Though the passenger lounge was busy there was room and the staff were efficient and friendly. Would use again.

  • "Excellent service."

    Convenient and on time. Ship was very clean and tidy. Staff very pleasant and helpful. My only complaint was that the shop didn't accept newspaper vouchers so I couldn't enjoy my copy of the Gaurdian with my fish and chips.

  • "Three and s half hours!"

    Why on earth has Troon decided not to have a ferry service? It takes an extra hour and a half to get to Cairnryan than Troon, ruling out the early and late ferries which we used to catch from Troon. Customer choice, I think not.
