  • "Smooth Sailing"

    Cannot fault the service we received, everything went smoothly from arrival at the Ferryport, to check in, to boarding, our time on the boat and off loading. Would definitely recommend the Club Class service, made our journey just that little bit more special! Priority boarding meant we were first on and first off and able to escape the queues. Brilliant

  • "my trip"

    Cannot fault the trip from large to cairnryan. The boat sailed on time for both outward and return journey. My only criticism is the charge for internet access where train and coach companies n northern Ireland have no charge the ferry charges 3 pound's

  • "Ferry crossing"

    Everything seemed very well organised from checking in to boarding the ferry. Delighted to receive £20 in food vouchers for a meal on the ferry across to Larne. Crossing was smooth and disembarkation swift and on our way. Return journey equally as good although no food vouchers this time.

  • "Great crossing"

    We got a standard room for 4 with a window, which was largely enough for 2 adults 3 kids, next time would get economy with window (outside). Kids loved crossing, was quite smooth. Onboard entertainment cheesy but fun. Brought our own sandwiches for tea and breakfast too, onboard food is pricey. There's a cinema too, good price but times are all IRL times not French which threw us a little.

  • "Equality of Tourists and travellers"

    I have remained loyal to the P&O Cairnryan to Larne crossing for several reasons. Value for money, non-fuss boarding and exiting procedures, Port access, on board staff and crew competence. P&O provide a trouble free relaxed and quiet crossing which sets me off on my holiday or travels in a positive frame of mind.

  • "First time crossing"

    This was my first time on a ferry and was unsure what to expect. It was a very busy ferry. Getting onboard with the car was no problem and there were staff available to show us how to get onto passenger deck. As it was such a busy ferry an area not usually open to car passengers was opened up so we were able to get a seat rather like an airline seat which reclined. The journey seemed to pass quickly and when it was time to get back to the car there were staff available to tell us what to do and to direct us off the ferry. All in all a very pleasant journey.
