    Lovely little boat. The food is very good. Surprised to get a steak for dinner and perfectly cooked. I had low expectations but I’m looking forward to sailing again. Thank you

  • "P&O journey "

    We travelled from Liverpool to Dublin on Thursday. It was a pleasant journey. We booked a cabin and relaxed for part of it. We also got breakfast and dinner which we weren’t expecting so that was a bonus. All in all a a good experience and we would book it again.

  • "March 20 experience"

    Our first time on the Liverpool Dublin service. Clearly designed for lorries indeed, on our trips there were no more than half a dozen cars each way. On the plus side this means the public spaces are relatively empty, the food simple but well cooked and tea/coffee/ fruit juice is always available; all included in the ticket price. On the negative side the entertainment is confined to a couple of televisions, and a bar. The cabins are simple, clean but without any frills. So provided you can entertain yourself for 8 hours this is excellent way to cross the Irish sea
