  • "Nice relaxing easy"

    I flew over to Scotland and drove home, it wasn't my first time flying but it was my first time using the ferry, we were shocked at how easy and relaxed we all were on board, my husband had a nap while I watched a film with my two kids in the kids section

    I travelled as a foot passenger on the Larne to Troon service and would highly recommend this service. The boat was clean, comfortable and punctual and the staff were both efficient and courteous at all times.

  • "A lovely way to get Cross the Sea!"

    We had a tremendous experience aboard the Express from Troon to Larne! The service was terrific and the speed of loading and unloading was so much better than we could have imagined! We will definitely ride again some day!

  • "Motorbike Tour in Ireland"

    We took went on a motorbike tour around Ireland and decided to take the P&O Ferry to get from Scotland to Ireland. The Ferry has a good price, is quick (took 2hours), offers a range of food and beverages and has good seating. Our bikes had been taken good care of. They are getting secured by the crew. Overall a good experience. And we will take it again.

  • "Leaving the ship at Troon as a foot passenger"

    At Troon as you know foot passengers have to leave the ship using the rear yellow stairway down to the car deck. When leaving the ship on Friday the upper landing as you leave the passenger accommodation area was extremely wet with a significant accumulation of surface water. The stairway was also extremely wet. I think this could pose a health and safety risk for some passengers and perhaps the crew should try and clear this water away using some form of absorbant matertial before foot passengers are allowed to leave the ship. Otherwise this is a great service with staff at Larne Troon and on the ship very friendly and helpful.
