I have crossed the channel by car ferry some 100 odd times - but usually later in the day. This crossing I took the 07.30 P&O sailing from Dover and had one of the best "Full English" breakfasts I have ever had. The food was fantastic, the waiters and waitresses were professional, friendly and enthusiastic. The tables were beautifully laid out with white linen tablecloths and napkins. The icing on the cake on this particular crossing was a free £20 voucher from P&O to spend on food!

The online booking was very easy to negotiate & the staff were very helpful. The ferry facilities were very good. Even though we missed our booked journey the staff got us on the next one with minimal of fuss.

With the exception of drizzling rain and limited views, our channel crossing was excellent. The water was calm, the ferry very smooth and the time passed quickly. There were lots of services on board to keep younger children amused. The duty free shop was very crowded, but that is to be expected considering the volume of passengers. The staff were helpful and friendly. As a foot passenger with luggage, the staff were excellent and arranged for a luggage crate for us and took our suitcases on arrival at the ferry and delivered them to us at Calais. We paid extra for lounge class but would not bother with this again as there was no advantage to it. We were led to believe that lounge class passengers exited the ferry first (which wasn't the case) and we wanted this as we needed to pick up a hire car before the car office closed. However, when we arrived at the check in counter we were quite early and so the lady put us on an earlier ferry making the timing for the hire car pick up irrelevant. Lounge class also includes free food and drink. This was a bit disappointing as it seemed to be just tea, coffee, crisps, biscuits and nuts. The lounge was understaffed and the staff were overworked, making the service very slow. There was also no wifi available on our ferry. I had a lot of trouble trying to book our tickets online from Australia and finally had to book through a travel agent. I did not have any problems booking a previous ferry crossing through a different company.
