"Easy and Pleasant"
Reviewed 12 April 2014 by Yvonne
I recently travelled to Hull from Rotterdam and, on the whole, found the trip to be very enjoyable with a variety of activities on board to keep most people happily entertained.
The one major downside of this form of travel, however, is the length of time we have to wait to go through customs on the British side! This is the second time I have made this trip, and both times I have had to wait in a queue in my car for nearly an hour. The first time I could understand as it was busy and I was one of the later passengers boarding the ship in Rotterdam. The second time, my son and I arrived specifically early as we had to get to Manchester at a certain time, so we wanted to get off and away as quickly as possible. Somehow, a large number of cars (that had boarded after us) were shown off the boat before us, and we still had to wait about an hour to go through customs - extremely frustrating!
One recommendation I would like to make to P&O: please give the port addresses on your confirmation e-mail so it is easily available to put in the cars' sat nav systems.

Our crossing from Rotterdam to Hull (arriving on New Year's Eve) went very smoothly indeed. We were travelling with two children, aged 10 and 4, and everything, from our arrival at the port, to boarding the ship, getting to our cabin, eating a meal, sleeping on the bunks and waking up the following morning, went well. We took the children into the cafeteria for supper - children's portions for them and we upgraded to freshly-prepared steak with a bottle of wine. We decided against breakfast, since the thought of getting the cabin packed up and the children dressed in time to get them in and out of the restaurant before getting to the car in time to disembark at 7.45am seemed too daunting. (We found a lovely cafe in Beverley where we had a good Yorkshire breakfast 20 minutes or so after our arrival.)

"There & Back"
Reviewed 06 January 2014 by Matt
This was my first crossing on the Rotterdam to Hull route but I was very pleasantly surprised at the overall experience: the staff were helpful and polite and the cabin wasn't terrible either.
As we used both the pride of Rotterdam and the pride of Hull I'd say the Rotterdam was quite a bit better in terms of decor and facilities, but especially when it came to meal time as it provided a better service and a better choice of food. Also, as I have an allergy to wheat... which often makes life difficult when travelling, I was very pleased to see that on the Rotterdam the meals were labelled and even warnings were present (sadly not the case on the Hull).
Having done it I'd definitely recommend pre-booking your meal & breakfast if you intend to take them as you can save quite a bit over the on-board price too.
