  • "All in all a good experience and great value"

    First time on P&O Dublin to Liverpool. Way cheaper than Stenna and Irish Ferries. Quite basic seating etc but absolutely fine. Only negative is related to arm rests on bench seats so mean it's impossible to spread out or get your head down on such a long crossing. But all in all a good experience
