  • "Very satisfied"

    Recent trip from Larne to Cairnryan (and return) with P&O was up to the usual high standard. Sailings were on time, the ferry was clean, warm and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. We travel a couple of times a year and have always had an excellent service.

  • "P&O Cairnryan to Larne"

    Chose the short crossing from Cairnryan to Larne and it proved to be worth the extra driving to reach the port. The loading and embarkation was efficiently carried out and the departure and arrival times were punctual. All the staff were professional and friendly. I will choose this service again without hesitation. Thank you.

  • "very enjoyable trip to cairnryan"

    We had a very enjoyable trip from Larne to Cairnryan and return recently. Ship was nice and clean hospitality very good. Staff helpful and approachable. Only thing I felt on a downer was that the shop offered little selection of goods, could have been much better.

  • "Plain sailing"

    Cairn Ryan to Larne in Premium Club lounge was relaxing with excellent service from staff. Returning to Larne slightly early, booking staff were pro-active in transferring us to the Troon sailing, saving time and driving time in the comfortable fast ferry lounge. Both sailings contributed to the excellence of the Irish holiday.

  • "Ferry to Ireland"

    Great crossings to and from Ireland. Going by ferrying there is now baggage allowance which for me is a bonus. The voucher at Cairn Ryan was a welcome bonus We had a lovely meal. We enjoy the crossings and the facilities on board.
