  • "Nice way of travelling"

    Check in was quick, ferry was on time, it's clean and the staff are nice. The food is too expensive but that applies to all modes of transport with no competition for food! It's cheaper than the train!

  • "Boat booking review"

    The trip was good but I never received the £20 restaurant voucher and had to insist by reception(on the ferry) to get it. They said I should have received it from Direct ferries and they are not supposed to give it. Otherwise pleasant boat ride. Staff friendly.

  • "5/08/2015 12.35. Calais to Dover"

    Whole experience was very smooth and very well organised. On our return journey, the Captain apologised for poor tannoy quality. When approaching Dover harbour, we were on an outside deck and did not hear any announcement regarding disembarkation and were late returning to our car ( as were many others ). We thought that the tannoy is vital in any emergency. Otherwise a pleasant experience

  • "Efficient"

    Very pleased with our recent journey with p&o ferries. The booking online with direct ferries was simple and clear. P&o were quick and clear with instructions for boarding . The vehicle recognition meant the paperless check in was quick and boarding swift. The club lounge was a welcome retreat to relax although the outbound ferry lounges could have been cleaner. On the return ferry one of the sofas had a rip. But the staff were friendly and served food and drinks with grace and we felt very relaxed. A lovely way to start and finish a holiday. Highly recommend using P&O :)

  • "Dover to Calais"

    No problems at Dover, despite striking French ferry workers on 3.7.15. Efficient loading. Problem is so many noisy unruly schoolchildren occupying every seating and deck area. Will probably use Dover to Dunkirk in future to avoid the hassle, since it is more 'civilised', Dunkirk is less prone to strikes & the ferries are of a decent quality

    In spite of horrendous problems with emigrants at Calais our boat was only a short time late leaving. we are especially impressed with the lounge facilities for which one pays a little more but which are well worth it; the quiet; the friendly and helpful staff, the excellent choice of food and the champagne, access to Newspapapers and access to open deck. Brilliant
