has carried out a £2.5 million upgrade of its ship the Pride of Canterbury.
The ship, which operates on the Dover to Calais route, will now boast a host of facilities that mirror those on board the company's two recently acquired vessels the Spirit of Britain and Spirit of France, reports the Dover Express.
Included in the makeover is the addition of a new waiter service restaurant called The Brasserie, along with a new main bar and updated family lounge.
The ship's onboard shopping facilities have also been upgraded to match those of the new ferries.
Simon Johnson, passenger services director of P&O Ferries, told the newspaper: "So much thought went into designing our new ships, and they have been so well received, that we're now incorporating their key features into other ferries.
"Along with new menu options in the restaurants on board, and updated ranges in the shops, passengers will certainly notice the difference."
