"BE prepared to be treated as a second-class citizen"
Recently, we made a return Dublin/Liverpool trip with P&O. Overall, the trip was satisfactory, but car drivers come as a very low priority on this road-haulage ferry. We were kept waiting a very long time on the outward journey, meaning that the dinner included on the ticket was less than warm. Our two main courses were not warm and the chips were lukewarm. For breakfast the next morning, the galley were short of croissant rolls The return journey was better and - because we were allowed on early - the food was much more satisfying. On both legs, however, the price charged for the berths is outlandish, considering the way the beds are made, the lack of self-regulating heating and the very basic provision. Another grumble is that car drivers are always placed on the top deck, exposed to the sea, wind and rain and they are always delayed in leaving.
