"Excellent service "
Booked with Direct Ferries. Good price and very easy to use their website and book. Crossing was quick and facilities on-board were good. There was a 40minute delay for the return crossing, never did find out the reason for this.

"A competent service"
P&O provided a competent service for the Dover/Calais crossing. The range of food available could have been been wider, however.

"One big disaster"
Ship creew was 10 on 10, but we was waiting 2h for bording, and then another 2,5h to leave a ship. All time for crossing was like 6h!!!

Both ferries were great, the staff in the restaurant were super friendly and helpful and the food was good quality I can’t praise them highly enough. The selection in the duty free I did find a bit limited but I suppose the majority audience is catered for. Will happily travel P&O Dover to Calais again.

"My experience "
I would suggest to please book ur tickets directly from the carrier, they might seem bit more in price as compare to Direct Ferries but when it comes to do any change, it will cost you arm n leg. I booked my tickets via direct terriers and was suggested to book flexi tickets in case I would require to do any changes, this way I won’t have to pay anything extra, trust me no difference, I requested a change a date and was told that it will cost me 45 pounds . I decided not to and reached Calais without a change. P&O was not only helpful but also changed me only £20 pounds. They also did me a huge favour as to my surprise the ticket I was sold as Flexi ticket was actually not the flex ticket. P&O could have made me buy a new one but they were courteous and only made me pay a mere £20 pounds. I would never use them ever again.

"An old experience pleasantly revived!"
This was probably the first time we had crossed from Dover on a ferry since Eurotunnel and were very pleasantly surprised. The crossing to Calais is only c1.5 hours and there are plenty of comfortable seats, even in the summer holidays (we returned on August 1). Only real drawback was that while in Dover we "sailed" through passport control etc, coming back in Calais we queued for what seemed at least an hour. This would not stop us using the ferry again, but possibly not in the summer holidays (we are semi-retired, so that's not a problem :)

"No updates from DirectFerries"
We were hold up for over additional 1.5h waiting for delayed ferry, apparently P&O sent emails with updates to those who purchased tickets directly, we haven't received it. DirectFerries needs to correct it.

"Calais-Dover Car Ferry"
NB Ship was in fact the "Pride of France". I had arrived very early for my scheduled voyage and the P & O port officials kindly offered me a place on an earlier ferry which had places to spare. Of course the very name P & O conjures up thoughts of luxury travel to Imperial India and suchlike and so expectations of P & O tend to run high. I was NOT disappointed by its modern-day, if more mundane, successor. On the contrary I was delighted to discover (directed by charming staff) high up on the upper decks a splendid lounge where I was able to enjoy a proper Afternoon Tea ( a "cream tea" indeed) which would not have disgraced Fortnum & Masons. And with attentive service to boot. And all for the very modest sum of £10. A most enjoyable experience in every respect.
