  • "Excelent trip"

    I have never used the ferry to go over the water to N. Ireland before but I will definitely be doing it again. It is a straight forward system when arriving at the port and the ferry itself is up to a clean standard has great facilities. Couldn't have asked for anything else.

    the time of the service was convenient, allowing me to travel overnight rather than paying for accommodation and delaying travel until the next daytime.

  • "Trip to Ireland"

    Going through check in was very quick & efficient. Facilities before going on board was very good, it also helped to stretch your legs after a long journey. Boarding and disembarking was very easy & quick. Once on board all facilities were very good. I recommend the cinema, if you don't mind the noise of the film it's easier to have a nap in there. All in all everything went smoothly, excellent service, staff helpful and friendly. Would definitely use again.

  • "2 return trips in one week."

    Very nice ship with very pleasant staff. The members cabin is very relaxing which includes light refreshments and worth the extra cost. If you pay for priority boarding, you have to turn up early. We checked in 35 minutes before departure, were among the last 20 cars to board and we're actually the last car to get off. Not great priority treatment. Quite pricy for daytime travel, but still a nice trip.

  • "First trip to Ireland"

    This was our first use of P&O Ferries and this trip was well organised. On arrival at Liverpool we were quickly on board the boat and the facilities were great. There was even a breakfast provded. The water was calm on the day we travelled but we had ordered a cabin, just in case, this proved very convenient as we could leave our hand luggage there whilst we just "chilled" in the lounge area. All in all, the crossing was a very enjoyable experience and the facilities and staff were superb.

    Excellent all round service. Vessel was clean and tidy, no complaints. Crossing was very smooth but mainly because the sea was like a mill pond. Found staff helpful and courteous. Ten out of ten.
