Shipping News Feature
UK – BELGIUM – P&O Ferries will this week formally re-launch its two RoRo ships on the North Sea that sail overnight between Hull and Zeebrugge after a successful multi-million pound refit. The Pride of York and the Pride of Bruges, two 32,000 tonne sister vessels which can carry up to 880 passengers on their 12 hour sailings between Britain and the Continent, have benefited from a major refurbishment designed to improve the on-board freight facilities, shopping, dining and sleeping experience. Janette Bell, Managing Director at P&O Ferries, said:

"We are delighted that this £8.5 million relaunch has transformed freight driver facilities, on-board shops, Brasserie and improved the cabins for everyone who sails with us. It is the ideal package for tourists who don't want to endure a budget airline and for freight drivers who want to relax overnight and reach their destination on time in the morning."

"In addition our freight customers, who can continue to rely on our commitment to minimising turnaround times, will be pleased to learn that we have introduced, for freight drivers, an overnight laundry service, special discounts in the shops and a £1 Wi-Fi offer."
