Sail with a vehicle or on foot

Choose between travelling as a foot passenger or with a vehicle and if you book meals (breakfast, dinner, or both) in advance it’s cheaper than paying onboard. Foot passengers can purchase coach transfers from Rotterdam port to Rotterdam Central or Amsterdam (ferries to Rotterdam), or Bruges (ferries to Zeebrugge).

Travel in style on the Pride of Hull or Pride of York

There are two ferries on each route – Hull to Rotterdam is serviced by the Pride of Hull and Pride of Rotterdam whilst Hull to Zeebrugge has the Pride of York and Pride of Bruges.

Onboard each ferry is a great range of facilities – in part it’s these that have made the Hull North Sea Ferries so popular. You will find restaurants, cinemas, a well-stocked shop, a casino and of course a choice of bars. In the show lounge there is usually surprisingly good live entertainment to enjoy.

North Sea Ferries to Rotterdam

Sail overnight on P&O North Sea Ferries from Hull to Rotterdam

P&O Ferries daily service from Hull to Rotterdam is one of the most popular ferry routes from the UK to the continent. The ferry departs from Hull docks at 9pm and arrives in Rotterdam (Europoort) the following morning around 8am – a total journey time of around 11hours. This is plenty of time to relax, explore, and enjoy the onboard facilities and entertainment.

All passengers have an ensuite cabin (toilet and shower, with towels provided) meaning you can get a great nights sleep to arrive in Rotterdam relaxed and refreshed. Cabin choices range from the most economical Standard inside or outside (with a sea view porthole) cabins, through the slightly larger Premier inside our outside cabins to the luxurious Club Cabins.

The ferry departs Hull in the early evening (through a pretty impressive bit of manoeuvring through a lock) and arrives at Zeebrugge the following morning. As with the Rotterdam ferry, there is plenty of entertainment onboard for both adults and kids.

There is a choice of cabins ranging from Standard (still with ensuite shower and toilet – towels provided) through slightly larger Premier cabins to the Club class cabins for those who want a bit of North Sea luxury! This route makes a perfect alternative for travellers from the North of the UK to avoid the long drive south to the Dover to Calais ports.

Perfect for a long weekend in Bruges, or as a gateway to France and Germany the North Sea ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge carries you in style overnight from Hull to arrive refreshed in the morning in Zeebrugge. With a range of facilities on board for both adults and children, the ferry makes an ideal alternative to the long drive south for the Channel ferries.
