Cabin: clean, roomy, no-nonsense good quality. Great breakfast! Everything was as expected. (It would be nice if the tables in the bar were kept less sticky.)

There was a major problem when booking this trip on line as we had no idea we needed to get a bus from Rotterdam to Euro port. It was only by luck that we were told in Delft that this was the case. The general view of the trip was good but not knowing where to get on the ferry was stressful.

"Great way to travel - but time needed to clear customs."

P and O Rotterdam to Hull is a fantastic way to travel across the North Sea. Smooth crossing, even in choppy seas because the boat is so big. Beds comfortable. Only problem was the time taken to get through customs in Hull on arrival - about an hour needed.

All excellent service..I just wish there was a little 24 hour coffee, drinks, outlet for those of us who don't sleep through the whole night.

Rotterdam , located in the province of Zuid Holland, is the second largest city in the Netherlands (after Amsterdam). The city has the largest port in Europe and was until recently the largest port on earth; it is found on the banks of the river the Nieuwe Maas, one of the streams in the delta formed by the Rhine and Meuse rivers. Rotterdam was founded in the mid 13th century after a dam had been constructed in the River Rotte on the site of the present Hoogstraat. Over the centuries Rotterdam grew from a fishing village into an international centre of trade, transport, industry and distribution. At the beginning of the Second World War, on 14 May 1940, virtually the entire city centre was devastated by a German bombardment. This explains why scarcely any pre-war buildings have remained in this part of Rotterdam. After the war, reconstruction of what had been destroyed was given the highest priority.
Hull's (Its full title is Kingston-upon-Hull )maritime pre-eminence dates back to 1299, when it was laid out as a seaport by Edward I. It quickly became England's leading harbour, and was still a vital garrison when the gates were closed against Charles I in 1642, the first serious act of rebellion of what was to become the English Civil War.
The central Princes Dock sets the tone for Hull's modern refurbishment, the once abandoned waters now lined by landscaped brick promenades and overlooked by Princes Quay, a multi-tier, glass-spangled shopping centre, with the revamped marina beyond.
The train station is on the west side of town, on the main drag of Ferensway, with the bus station just to the north. The main tourist office is bang in the centre on Paragon Street at Queen Victoria Square
