Larne to Troon with P&O Irish Sea Ferries
I travelled recently to Troon with my husband and children as foot passengers. We had an excellent experience the check in was easy and straight forward and quick. The crossing was great and very smooth. The return journey was myself and daughter in a car and husband and son as foot passengers. The journey again was hassle free and even though I'd never driven a car onto a boat before, it all went really well, staff were very helpful and put me at ease. Great trip!
Hull to Rotterdam Europoort with P&O Ferries
Only problem this trip was the cinema, drowned out all dialogue from the hobbit so sound was all wrong and hurt ones eardrums. We gave up and got our money back!!!
Dublin to Liverpool with P&O Irish Sea Ferries
Finding the P&O terminal in Dublin was a nightmare, signposts to the various ports are confusing and the tourist information office in town gave me incorrect advice as well although at check-in I was told the poor signs were the fault of the council and not P&O?? Allow plenty of time if you don't know where it is to avoid stress! I booked this route on the internet as much cheaper than the Holyhead route; however, we were not told that there would be 2 free meals, which were both very nicely cooked and copious - very generous, but we had already eaten that morning. It was an old ferry and very restricted passenger space for an 8 hour journey, nothing like the cross channel ferries in south England: 2 small lounges with a TV in the corner playing odious ITV programmes all day and we could not get away from young kids playing ipods quite loudly. We could have booked a cabin but thought it unnecessary for a day trip but, in retrospect, it would have been a good way to spend the day restfully. As it was a small ferry with many containers on board embarkation and debarkation were complicated and drawn out, the lock-in process at Liverpool dock takes some time, so you will need to be patient
