"Liverpool - Dublin"
Once again cannot fault this trip. Ship clean, staff friendly and helpful, food excellent, cabin comfortable. Much more convenient and less stressful than flying. I took two family members with me and they were very impressed. Wonderful no hassle trip. I travelled out on the Endeavour and back on the Norbank - could not fault either of the ships or their staff.

"Excellent trip all round"
We travelled on daytime sailings, and the experience could not have been bettered on either journey. Booking-in was easy and friendly. Loading was quick. The food and service were cooked and presented to an exellent standard. The cabins were quite large and contained everything we needed for a sleep and shower etc. Unloading was again acheived qucikly and without fuss. Overall, a very pleasant experience. We would definitely recommend this route to Ireland.

"Ferry trips - August 2015"
No issues. Would definitely do again. The only negative was how long it took to get off once arrived back at Liverpool!

"A lovely start to our holiday"
My family and I really enjoyed our P&O Irish Sea crossing from Liverpool to Dublin. It was hassle free and we really felt that our two week break in Ireland started when we got on board the ferry. The food was very good and the staff were friendly.

"My Norbay/Norbank trip"
Once again, everything was perfect. I travel this route several times a year with my wife and our dog, and it's the way our dog is taken into consideration by the crew and the handlers that keeps us coming back. The privilege of being stowed "last on/first off" on the main deck rather than on the upper deck with the other passenger/tourist vehicles is very much appreciated. We've already booked our next trip! Thank you P&O - you're fantastic!

"Appreciation of your service"
What can I say? The whole experience was a very pleasant one. Mind you, the crossing was smooth (not lumpy), and we did pay the extra for a cabin. Very good value, crew we encountered were friendly and efficient. I would most certainly travel with you again, and recommend your service to others. A VERY BIG THANKS TO YOU ALL!!

"Ferry Crossing "
The ferry port was very difficult to find in Liverpool. There is no signage in downtown. We were directed by locals all over Liverpool and because so, we almost missed the ferry. With that being said once we arrived 10 mins before departure, the crew was very helpful accommodating us and getting us checked in and on board. The ferry itself was clean and the staff was very efficient. We would sail again on PO Ferries, now that we know where the port is at.

We chose to have have a shorter drive and a long ferry trip rather than the other way around. The price was very good and the instructions said food was provided. You board the ferry at 7.00 /7,30 depending on which direction you are traveling, breakfast was served by 8.30am and a further meal was served at 4.00pm. The food was very good and plenty of it. There was a hot drinks machine which was available throughout the journey. No lunch was provided, which would not be a problem if you could purchase a sandwich / pasty or some sort of lunch time item. All there was for sale was crisps, chocolate and peanuts. Cabins could be purchased for about £15, we didn't bother with one as there was plenty of comfortable seating. This is mainly a freight vessel and therefore the passenger space is much reduced, this being said there are not as many passengers to fill the space. You can take a stroll on deck which was a little bracing. There are two TV lounges, you can change the channels once you figure out the controls, There were some DVD's available on the way out but not on the way back. Between the serving of meals, watching TV, DVD's playing games ( I brought a little box of travel games and playing cards) the eight hours didn't pass too badly. Cars are parked on deck surrounded by lorry trailers, on the way out the sea was rough and all the cars had a coating of salt on them. Not sure if it is related but the emissions filter light came on, we came to the conclusion it had been covered in salt, a fortnight later it eventually went out. All in all I would recommend this as a reasonable way to avoid driving all the way to South Wales. you can walk around pop to the loo, have something to eat instead of sitting in the car unable to do all of the above. Just remember bring some lunch and something to entertain yourself.

Good service, helpful staff very pleasant voyage as always great value for price
Reviewed 05 August 2015 by William who travelled with P&O Irish Sea on Norbank
This was the first time we had used this service and this will certainly not be the last. It was excellent and we were pleasantly surprised to learn that the fare included 2x2 meals on both crossings. We were even able to avail ourselves of a cabin in both directions and this enabled us to get some much needed sleep before journeying on. We would certainly highly recommend.

"Over all very good service"
Overall very good service on the ferry. However at both ends- liverpool and Dublin- the P&O port was very difficult to find -not well sign- posted and not enough info at booking stage. This meant that the beginning of both journeys was very stressful as we tried to find the place and we're late both times. Thankfully we didn't miss the boat.
