    Every journey matters
    • It was a good trip back from Calais to Dover. Due to weather conditions we have delayed 1 hour but well informed at the check in gates by the P and O ticket inspector

    Cheap and cheerful
    • Somewhat delayed ferry. Boats are pretty run down and food quality versus price poor, bar was closed.

    Competent crew, decent vessel, everything works
    • We are by nature P and O Ferries customers but this sailing combination suited us better. A good vessel, very friendly helpful crew and without doubt the best coffee I've ever tasted on a cross Channel ferry ! Well done.
