  • "Better than the Tunnel "

    An easy, stress free and relaxed crossing. Preferable to being crammed into a cigar tube on the train. If you have a long onward journey - we had a long drive to Norfolk - it’s a great way to rest and prepare.

  • "Ship fine Calais delay disgusting "

    Absolutely no complaints about the ship itself once we got on it - after a 2.5 hour delay in Calais despite having arrived 1 hour early for our designated ship as instructed it sailed without us due to the horrendous backlog and delay in getting through passport control. I have never seen anything like it however we shouldn’t moan too much apparently people who arrived later than us were delayed 5 hours at Calais so I suppose 2.5 hours doesn’t seem so bad in comparison.

  • "Weekend trip"

    I travelled from Calais to Dover on the Pride of Kent. Nice boat. Getting a bit old though. But overall, a good experience. I travelled back on the Spirit of France. That was an even better experience as the boat is brand new. On both travels, the staff members were great. I may say as usual as I've been travelling with P&O for about 20 years now and I have never had to complain.

  • "Great crossing great service"

    I treated myself to club this time. I. So glad I did as it was an excellent experience. Staff were so friendly, met my every wish and service very prompt. Good free glass of champagne and a comfortable view. The form beef sandwich a little strange and difficult to eat at such low coffee tables but good ideas in the right direction. I recommend P&O experience.

  • "Boat trip"

    The P and O ferry from Calais to Dover was clean and tidy. We found the staff helpful ( we only had a cup of tea , but that was fine) and my missing purse was very quickly returned to me. Impressive! One small criticism - I found the general announcements hard to hear, and missed the safety announcements completely. Can they be a bit louder?

    We were very pleasantly surprised by the excellent meal and friendliness and competence of the staff in the Brasserie on our recent sailing on the Spirit of Britain. I was expecting a convenient meal just to keep us going but it really was very, very good. Couldn’t recommend it more, and the kitchen and waiting staff deserve a big pat on the back

  • "quick, efficient crossing"

    Fast check in, efficient embarcation and departure without issues. Ship has all the facilities needed. Dover Calais is inexpensive and efficient (probably because of competition from the tunnel) - its a pity other routes (from Portsmouth to Caen, Cherbourg etc) seem so much more expensive.

  • "Pleasant Journey"

    We were at Dover nice and early, hence no queue which was great. It was perfect as it made the journey quite pleasant. The journey to Calais was only one and a half hours, so we ventured around the ferry. Found a comfortable place to sit with the family. It was a pleasant trip. On our return, it was also smooth sailing. We were early and fortunately they put us in the earlier ferry ( an hour early) which means we arrive UK even earlier that made it even better. This time I managed to buy a duty free perfume which made my day. Again we found a nice place to sit and enjoyed family time. Overall the journey was lovely and pleasant.
