On board

The ferries running to and from Hull have cabins, a restaurant and coffee shop and shopping facilities. Entertainment includes a casino, cinema and live entertainment. Plus, there’s a play area and games arcade for kids.

The ferries on the Irish Sea route offer a food court, cafe and bar, kids entertainment, a shop and on-board Wi-Fi.

The ships operating on the Liverpool-Dublin route have limited passenger facilities and there are no lifts to the main passenger area.


On Hull routes, in order to comply with Defra regulations (www.defra.gov.uk), P&O can't allow animals to be left in vehicles therefore kennels must be booked.

On the Liverpool-Dublin route, pets are no longer permitted to travel in vehicles and as P&O cannot offer kennels, unfortunately pets can no longer travel on this route (except for guide dogs).
