An overpriced, good night's sleep.
I used the overnight ferry 3 months ago. It's swift to check in and very comfy, no complaints there except that I am perfectly able to set my own alarm - no need to wake me up with a horrible song 1.5 hours before I can leave the boat.
My big complaint is that it's HUGELY overpriced. 3 months ago I paid £154 for a Rail & Sail ticket from 'any Greater Anglia station' to 'any Dutch station': 2x£36 trip+ 2x£30 overnight cabin+ £22 train. Now the same trip costs £174: 2x£36 trip+ 2x£38 overnight cabin+ £26 train. That's 13% price increase - in THREE months. I wonder whether it'll cost £196 by September, and £222 by December?
Also, the food is really bad, and once again overpriced.
I know you have the monopoly on this line, but there's no need to abuse it.
We had a comfort class cabin and I was really delighted with the level of comfort. A really good bed, double if you want, and a really good shower.
A pity the gangway is broken at Harwich at the moment - we could have done with some explanation when we arrived at the port.
The only way to travel!
Having just returned from my second trip via the Dutch Flyer within a month, I can only have praise for this way of travelling to the Netherlands. I choose the overnight crossing because: a) It means the trip starts at Liverpool Street station; b) the cabins are very well appointed; c) the evening meal and breakfast food is excellent. When you consider that for the deal you get the journey to anywhere in the Netherlands, and bed and breakfast and evening meal all-in, it is excellent value for money. I recommend it to anyone who'll listen!
